Merry Christmas One and All ...

So this is Christmas ...


I'm home after a morning at DH and I'm pleased to say that, despite all, we've had a successful December. Two days at home now before we open again (... another day off would have been nice!!!) ...


Thank you all for your support during my first 9 months at the helm of Dairy House Antiques. It's been a steep learning curve, but one I'm so glad I have attempted. Thanks also to everyone who has supported Vintage to Victorian - both the blog and the website.



I'm now ready to wrap the prezzies (with a little festive spirit to help me along), decorate the 18" high Christmas tree (a real one with roots), and set the table ready for tomorrow. Mum and Gillie are coming to us. (Han and Rob are in Cornwall for the week and, by all accounts, having a wonderful time with a group of friends. It's the first time they've not whizzed from family to family and I'm so pleased they decided to be brave and have Christmas by the sea!) I then hope to prepare all the veggies - we do loads of different ones as Mum is vegetarian. I always do more than enough so that there is plenty for bubble & squeak on Boxing Day, and for a 'doggie bag' for Mum to take home. There is usually more left over than is eaten on Christmas Day, but that's how we like it. It's a tried and tested recipe for success. I've been doing it for 31 Christmases now and it seems to work!!


May you receive all you wish for, and give to others as you would like to be given. Have a wonderful time and no doubt we'll be catching up with one another again in a few days' time!


Happy Christmas!
Sue

Hope you had a lovely time Sue - have you noticed that Sophie Honeysuckle is posting again but without comments. I am sure I found your blog through hers?
