I was up earlier than I thought – around 6am. It’s a white Christmas, but it’s ‘old’ white as there hasn’t been any new stuff for a few days. It’s cold though – the temperature gauge is showing ‘-7C’. We had a a lazy breakfast and prepared for the main event – presents!

for a snooze to watch the annual Queen’s Speech and take Denis and Bev through the holiday snaps from our holiday in Rome.
15.45: Denis and Bev headed home and we watched Shrek 3 – I think it’s going to be nibbles and drinks round the TV – BBC probably!

21.15: We’ve eaten too much, had too much to drink – so it’s been a normal Christmas Day for us!
