It’s a family affair

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s not often my whole family get together, but around Christmas time, we usually manage to scramble under one roof all at once! Robin and I drove down to my sister’s new house that she had just moved into; we made food for 13 people! You can never go wrong with a roast, so that’s what we basically made this year. A big, fat chicken basted with tarragon butter, yorkshire puddings, lashings of gravy and lots of roast potatoes and vegetables. Not counting the nibbles and cheeseboard too…

This photo makes me laugh as my little niece looks SO happy about to tuck into some jelly!






Whilst dinner bubbled and roasted away, a few of us went to the park behind the house to walk the dogs and to get some fresh air. The light was golden outside and it’s my favourite time of the day, just as the sun is about to set…







When I was little, it was always me that wanted a piggy back, and now the table has turned! There’s a tire swing in the park, that I wanted to have a go on but the children outnumbered me 🙂 After a lap around the park, it was time to head home and get eating.




And that was my family festive day wrapped up until next year! Apart from our dinner…and the sticky toffee pudding…all I remember is a lot of laughs and lots of chatter. My brother in laws are the funniest people I know, and my gang of nieces and nephews are the sweetest, cuddliest little dudes in the world. Hope you all had amazing Christmases!
