Happy Christmas to everyone.  Again I have been so lazy about blogging - I just don't know where the time goes. 
We had a lovely family Christmas - for a change I didn't have to do anything!  My son, Nick invited me over to stay for the weekend at his girlfriend Emma's, and his house for Christmas this time, and also to meet Emma's family. 

We had a great time. They live in a lovely part of Crawley (honestly there are some!) right near woods and a golf course, so we went walking there on Christmas Eve with their dog, Bramble. A chocolate brown labrador who is as daft as they come, with the wiggliest bottom you have ever seen!

In the evening we were invited to Emma's parents for dinner for me to meet them before Christmas Day. Mmmmn - I have a feeling there's something brewing but am not allowed to say anything until later!!
My daughter, Kate, husband Danny, Chloe, Emily and Archie also came for Christmas lunch.

Here we all are.  Can you see the pile of food on Nick's plate at the front?  We all had the same!!  And believe it or not, we all ate it too!!  It was absolutely beautiful.  Nick did everything himself - from decorating the table, to cooking the turkey, to making his own mayonnaise, horseradish sauce and making and decorating the Christmas cake!  He was so excited - he was like a little boy again!

That's it for now.  Back later x
