We went away to my sister and brother in law's for Christmas this year. They live in Essex so including an overnight stop at my mum's on the way, the drive was around about 6 1/2 hours long. Well worth it when we got to see our presents clustered around the tree along with everyone else's. Usually we post the presents off to my sister in law and her husband and children in one massive box of Christmas cheer but this year we got to see the job on their faces when we brought the presents in!
|Their tree with all the goodies given for all 8 of us!|
|My present to Dus was a Grand Bagatelle. It's handmade mahogany with brass pins and was much played with over Christmas and boxing day. Tournaments aplenty for those not cooking and even a couple of goes for the two of us chefs!|
|I returned home to this disastrous mess all over the office.|
And yes, you're right.....Scroogantha became Santantha before too long!
