In-between days

How was your Christmas?  We had such a wonderful day here.  Both my girls Chloè and Annabel were up at half five in the morning checking for evidence of Santa’s visit.  As you can see by the shot below, Santa’s reindeer ate their carrots, obviously hungry from their long journey south.  

The day ended around 10 o’clock that night, I fell into bed after what was a hot, humid and gloriously sunny day with family.  
I love to cook and so I spent a fair amount of the day in the kitchen cooking up a storm of roast duck, lamb and Nigella’s coca cola ham, which was then followed swiftly by traditional Christmas pudding and my mum’s frozen raspberry cheesecake – mmm so good!

The girls waited so patiently for Mummy and Daddy to get out of bed before they got stuck into their presents.

And as for New Year’s Eve this year, what are your plans?  I think this year is going to be a quiet family celebration, which is just what I need after a very hectic and unpredictable year that we have had.  I am very much looking ahead to the new year.  There is great anticipation for 2012 to be a most amazing, wonderful, prosperous and joyous year we have had for a long time.  Expectations are high to say the least!  

Until then,
