    Great.

    Up early to walk the dog.

    Christmas mornings to ourselves. Then round to our Daughter's and family for lunch and games.

    Now at home relaxing with TV.

    No stress. Sheer pleasure, as it should be.

    Older of the two Grandsons (age 2 1/2) decided the gift we got him and posted to him was the best ever and refused to open any of the other pressies..... when we phoned all we could hear was his singing "Dinosaur Train, Dinosaur Train" !!!! Apparently his Mum is not impressed :( :)

    Glad you had a good day Bill hopefully with more joy to come. We are at home with one half of our family until Sunday when we get to see the other half. Had a good day today with our two grandchildren. It's the first time we have been allowed to have our 6 year old granddaughter (long story) so it has been a special day for us.
    Enjoy the rest of your Christmas. :xThumb:

Best nights sleep for ages - so looking forward to getting back there tonight in the peace and quiet :xrofl::xThumb::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep:

    Had my oldest home from the army so me nikki George and harley the two dogs a bottle of jack Daniels no tv just talking and eating Nikki's great dinner. Then happy birthday nikki and a birthday cake before more politicAl debate from the social justice warrior Harley on everything from gay rights to the belief that there is no god counteracted by George's belief that Europe should leave the UK and that if anyone so much as talks badly about the queen following her speech he will see to it personally to rid them of their human right to exist..bloody Grenadair Guards...
    We followed this with a hand combat boxing match whereby I proved that despite my advancing years I'm still a dab hand at the noble art out pointing George over 3 rounds whilst harley told us how the pen is mightier than the sword.

    All in all a pretty amazing day and how my kids turned out so different is quite a thing but the way we showed our love for each other yesterday despite our differences of thinking is testerment fir what can be achieved ...
    Enjoy the season xx

    Our oven broke down on Christmas morning! Came back from walking the dogs expecting to smell the lovely aroma of turkey cooking, only to find a cold oven. Fortunately we have great neighbours who cooked it for us in their oven. Motorhome oven to the rescue for other things and 8 people sat down to a lovely meal together. Phew ...
