It's all under control ... there's enough food to feed twenty in the 'fridge ( none of it knitted ) , parcels have been sent and received , a Christmas tree and Poinsetia have been installed ( the tree is actually smaller than the Poinsetia but some tinsel and little silver bells have revived its spirits ) , I decided against making the recipe for chocolate bars in the health shop brochure ... who needs chia seeds at Christmas ? , YD is bringing up mini Christmas puddings tomorrow and lots of proper chocolate for her father , the Polish Christmas carols CD has been found and sounds as lovely as always , and we have Spain's entire olive production for the last three years in our possession .
I hope that MD will still be talking to me after Elder Grandson opens one of his presents and he's busy making brightly coloured slime out of it . I hope that Julie Andrews isn't appearing on television in any shape or form over the holidays . I hope that the whistling neighbour has been invited somewhere nice for the holiday .
And Smitonius and I hope that you all have a perfectly splendid Christmas !!
