Well, its all over and what a successful Christmas it turned out to be! Yes, I did manage to make some non-Sabled mince pies and they were very tasty! My stuffing roll, take one, became a stuffing pancake but tasted fine. Take two was much more successful! The cheesecake was also a hit as too was the mint chocolate roll, with those who like dark mint chocolate!
The christmas cake was also tasty and took pride of place on the christmas table. We also scored a haul of presents so decided to make them last all day! Best present? Well, they were all great but we had bought ourselves a Nintendo Wii which we left until last thing, about 8.30pm! It has to be the most painful present of them all! I ached so much for the next two days, all the bowling and tennis, good grief. It also went down a storm on Thursday, when my family was over!! Some mean tennis players and bowlers there!
Oh, and we went to see The Snowman in Glasgow! It wasn't what we expected at all!! They had the Scottish National Orchestra there and while they played the music we watched the 'cartoon' on the big screen! It was really nice! Then in the second half we had carols with some audience participation! It was a great night, very different from anything I have been to before!
On Christmas eve we were also out and about, we went to a midnight service, it was really beautiful. And the minister was a great laugh! Only the second time I have been to an evening Christmas service, so something to remember!
Of course no blog entry would be complete without some photos so here they are:
