Finally, a Christmas in our own house! It’s only taken 5 years.
We hosted the Dold’s and Joyce’s (those in the country) for a big Christmas lunch at Sun Valley Lodge.
It was so nice to set up the tree, see all the pressies underneath and then get going in the kitchen. I prepared the gammon while Ross attempted the Turken (a turducken minus the duck) which worked out pretty well on the Weber, if you ignore the presentation!
The rain (again) tried its hardest to spoil the day, but it could not put a dampener on the festivities. We made short work of the pile of gifts under the tree and then cuddled up around the dining room table to attack the feast.
In tempting the weather, we sat outside to enjoy the ginger ice-cream, mince pies and Christmas pudding until the heavens sent us back again.
Finally, the kids braved the weather to play with the bubbles, which always round off a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.
