    Usual at home with daughters and brother who comes for xmas dinner and when they leave at 6ish we relax. I think the only time we won't be at home xmas is if daughters stop coming. Maybe one year we will use MIL's flat in Spain or cabin in Argyll but I can't envisage a xmas not at home.

    We will sit down to dinner with about a 1/4 of the family, so nice and quiet with only 10 of us round the table :)
    On Boxing day we play host to another lot .. It is tradition that Woman does piles and piles of chips ( the whole family seem to rate her chips as a real treat !! ) then in the afternoon go next door to number one sons for silly games until silly oclock in the morning !

    but...

    Should all go according to best case scenario, by Christmas Day, I could have a 2.2 kva push button start, Whisper Quiet Onan genny (bought from a Funster, transport arranged by a Funster) fitted into the Hymer...

    PLUS...

    A fresh stock of Fray Bentos Pies thanks to the consideration of certain Funsters.

    Add into the combination my neat little electric oven and we are looking at a delicious feast.

    JJ :cool:
