Christmas Day so far...

First of all I want to wish all my readers a 'Merry Christmas' and to let you know that this house is a Brussels free home. I've been working long and late hours in my job at Tesco in the last few weeks and finally dragged myself home at 8pm last night. My regular bus had stopped running at 7.30pm but the bus time table didn't show this! Luckily I managed to get another service home and was mightily relieved. I really didn't fancy a five mile walk home in the cold and wet after working all day. And £30 in a taxi was totally out of the question.

I forgot to get the lamb rack out to defrost last night so I had to sit it in a bowl of cold water for a few hours when I crawled out of bed this morning. I'm planning to have it with some greens and roast potatoes for my Christmas dinner. The joy of blogging will mean that later on I will be able to add a picture of the cooked meal to this blogpost after I have published this post.

So far I have treated myself to a shave and shower and several cups of tea and a couple of bacon butties for breakfast. I've had BBC Radio Nottingham on in the background and aside from a sad story about a man having his car stolen with Christmas gifts and his father's ashes in the boot all has been upbeat in local radio land.



I've phoned family and friends around the UK and beyond and got in touch with others through Facebook and Twitter.

And here it is ... Christmas dinner 2013

Will your next blog post include photos of your presses? I bet you've got lots of food related goodies like utensils, books and a new chef's hat

Looks good. I had a rack of lamb too, with steamed new potatoes and broccolini.

Glad to see that you've had a nice peaceful day after a hectic time at work. If the bus situation ever happens again and you can't get home then give me a ring and i will come and pick you up, saves shelling out ridiculous amounts on taxis!

Looks good, Phil - haven't had lamb rack for ages but will have another go. We had my aged father round for Christmas lunch and he's pretty traditional so it was turkey. And sprouts. But I did toss them in bacon to make them a bit more interesting.

Well done as ever with the blog and Merry Christmas.
