Merry Christmas!!

We’ve had a lovely day in our new house and Joel has been such a good boy for it!!

I’ve not got time for a big long detailed post, but here’s some pics from my phone which aren’t great, but show what we’ve been up to….

I made mackarel pate as a starter which was good actually since the rest of the lunch took a lot longer than anticipated with my semi useless oven!!

And me and Joel heading off.

These are all a bit out of order, but  guess you get the idea!

My funniest bits today involve Joel!  He loved the cracker hats, but being paper he kept ripping them.  He got through his own, then mine, Mum’s, Steve’s and he really wanted Grandad’s too but somehow he kept hold of his own and had it on whilst putting up the trampoline he got from them for Christmas.

He has really enjoyed opening his presents, but also being the elf to hand out presents to others.

He ate chocolate for breakfast, stuffing for lunch and white sauce for tea!
