Xmas day 2011

Weird one this. I loved the entire day but waking at 5.50 was a real pain in the bum. Youngest is 12 so her fault.
Food prep was done by 8pm Xmas eve. So cooking started with turkey crown in oven at 8.30am.
Pressies. Picking up other kids and more pressies done by 11.
By the time in laws and my mother arrived cooking was in full swing.
Dinner was lovely. 9 of us around the table. Only missing person was my dad who passed away back in Feb.
You forget how much you miss someone until family events happen and they are missing. His ususal demands of Brown Ale and whiskey were easy met while he sat in the chair in the corner waiting patiently for dinner. Always wearing the small paper cracker hat that never fit his head.
