Our tradition of a bottle of champagne on Christmas morning was strictly adhered to and we then got on with the task of preparing the vegetables for Christmas Dinner.
Malc & Ali had the task of preparing the meat and the dessert, so our responsibilities lay with the vegetables and the cheese board. To give us more space we took everything into the office kitchen, but we got carried away and ended up doing way too much for four people!
In the afternoon we took our offering around to Malc & Ali’s where they entertained us as their van is massive compared to ours. The dinner was lovely as we were all relaxed and enjoying the day, then Ali bought out the Fruit Pavlova and Christmas pudding. Absolutely delicious!
I think we’d all overdone it by the time the cheese and biscuits came out as not much of it was eaten. We then retired to enjoy a relaxing evening, having checked everything on site was in order.
We were able to Skype Brian & Heike in Germany as he was lucky enough to be able to be at home for Christmas…some good came out of the grounded airplanes!
