It's been a bit hectic here what with the card sending...parcel wrapping and all that festive decorating but now it's time for the best bit...the cooking fest of all that mouth watering grub...time for me to take up residence in the kitchen to guard the oven and treat my super sensitive nose to the delights of all those glorious smells and await the great big Christmas tasting session...oh yes the cook and this gastronomic connoisseur need to sample everything just to make sure it's fit for the Christmas Table.
But I hear that some of my bloggy buddies are getting their tinsel in a bit of a tangle...running around like headless chickens and getting themselves in a right old state...well take some advice from one who knows...Christmas will come and go whether you're ready or not so CHILL...it's only a fancy "bigger than normal" Sunday lunch after all...who's gonna care if your roasties are a bit overdone or your sprouts are more al dente than is good for your teeth...just fill up their glasses with some Christmas Cheer and if they are anything like the diners at our Christmas table...all plates will be scraped clean and tummies will be full to bursting...if not I'm happy to step in and mop up any left overs.
But apparently the cook fest is not kicking off until tomorrow...my old crafty Mum is off out today for a special Christmas Treat...bah humbug is all I can say...why am I never invited to go along.
So stop fretting...take a breath...it will all be alright on the night...I promise...
See you all soon
BIG CHRISTMAS HUGS
