Between courses

The morning was spent preparing the lunch and family phone calls (some more to come later). Mum was meant to be coming over to us by taxi, but, unfortunately, had one of her giddy turns just before the taxi was arriving, so she hasn't been able to come over.

John and I have just done justice to our Christmas lunch (neither of us could quite finish it - eyes being bigger than ...) We're now having a rest between courses, so I decided to open my CBC secret santa present:

We haven't got presents for each other this year because we bought our new TV for each other, but we've got other presents and stockings to open in a while.

Hope you're enjoying your day.

PS - for anyone who read this earlier, I made the most terrible mistake - I typed 'fortunately' instead of 'unfortunately' about mum!!


  1. Blogging before pud, eh?! Hope you've been having a lovely relaxing day, Hazel. Sorry to hear your mum wasn't well enough to join you, though. Merry Christmas!

  2. Sorry your mum couldn't join you yesterday Hazel. Hope she's feeling much better today.

    Have a wonderful festive period. Don't scoff too many chocolates - save some for tomorrow! ;-)


  3. Hope your mum is better today Hazel. Enjoy the rest of the festivities.

  4. Hope you had a good Christmas Hazel :-) I couldn't finish my lunch either :-(

    Also hope you Mum is better today.

    Missing the HS:MS prompts . . . weird without them.

    Bye for now . . . Sue :-)

  5. Hope your mum is feeling better, your new stash looks fab, I cant wait to see what you create with it!

  6. You made me giggle about your blogging mistake - just as well your mum doesn't read your blog! I hope you had a lovely day and managed to spend some time with your Mum too. We never even made it to the pudding - we were going to have it later, but when it got to later we were still full, probably have it at the weekend.


  7. Hope your mum is feeling heaps better Hazel - have fun creating with your new stash - looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
