Christmas preparations include a lot of work - but they include even more pleasure!
|Not for the faint hearted|
Today I met up with my friend Doreen. I've written about her before for we have been friends since I was in my twenties and we have never lost touch. Another friend, Jane, also joined us and I have to say I pitied the poor waitress when we went out for lunch. Now I have to emphasise that this was not Christmas lunch: it was a birthday lunch eaten shortly before Christmas. My birthday was actually six weeks ago but who's counting? Anyway, the three of us went to a favourite eatery, favourite for me at least because they do the best fried eggs and I always have their gammon, egg and chips but seeing as it was my birthday treat I had two eggs. As I say, who's counting? When it comes to calories, certainly not me!
And I have continued to sew and think about the intended recipients. I do like Christmas!
