Christmas Day

We had a quiet Christmas this year, with all the usual suspects away in other places, and dad didn’t even play golf like he usually does due to a sore foot. As such, you’d think we’d be more organised, but that wasn’t to be and it wasn’t until mid-morning that we opened various things.

My gift to everyone was a bottle of Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé, as when I tried it at the Dan Murphy’s Champagne appreciation night in October I absolutely loved it. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t find it quite as tasty the second time, however everyone else seemed to enjoy it, so the gift was a success.

I received some clothes, money and little bits and pieces like I usually do… in fact so did everyone else, as we usually do. Very boring but there really wasn’t anything on the list. There may be soon though, and that was worked in, but more on that another time.

Lunch/dinner wasn’t served until mid-afternoon, but was an unorthodox lamb or salmon main, with the usual spuds and other yummy roughage.
