Christmas has begun

My boys arrived yesterday afternoon, the fridge is full of food, films and games have arrived with No. 2 Son (just in case our more traditional games don't appeal) and we settled in to start our Christmas.

No. 2 Son has the most amazing collection of films and TV series and we decided on 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' to start our holiday season off. If you haven't seen it you really should. This is the second time we've watched it and it was even better this time. Then we watched the new 'Karate Kid', though to be honest I'm not actually sure why it was called that and not 'Kung Fu Kid'. I'm still puzzling over that one... incredible what takes up my mind space these days!

Nice food to eat, a game of Pick-up-Sticks and a game of Scrabble, a few of Season One of Father Ted and we were back into our usual Christmas. And just to add to the memory, something was dropped on the new sofa to stain it, so all is normal. Well for our household anyway.

I was remarkably calm about the stain. I did try a bit of warm water spot removal, but it made no difference... it's done, no point stressing, and found the best way to deal with it is to cover it up with a blanket.

Apart from a few last minute things that need to be bought, I think that's us.

So all that remains is for me to wish you all a peaceful, calm and happy Christmas... and remember... don't sweat it, cover it!


  1. Happy Christmas! Mincepies are in the oven and Bailey's and ice are in the glass here. Definitely not stressing.Have a lovely time with your family.
