And just in case you think I'm going to be a lazy tart today... think again!

ABOVE:  I have already started work on my next "UFO"... my heart quilt... which will be for another one of my kids....

I will come back later on (Derrr, you must KNOW that !).... and yak on about some more of the day.

We are expecting a few family members for dinner.... having a BBQ.... keeping it low key... don't want to do the whole 'turkey, stuffing... bla bla bla' today.  

ABOVE:  Santa came!

7am - dragged outta bed, witnessed kids unwrapping their presents, read some emails... ate chocolate for BREAKFAST.... went back to bed until 10am!  Feel ill... MUST NOT EAT CHOCOLATE FOR BREAKFAST EVER AGAIN.  Not a good idea at all. Derrrrr.

Off to have a shower and feel human again...

ABOVE: months ago I planted some old, sprouting potatoes and today Stew dug them up and we have just enough cute new potatoes for Christmas dinner!  I am very proud of that little crop!  Next time I will buy 'proper' seed potatoes though, cos I am bound to get more that way.  *smiles*

End of Day: Dinner was really, really lovely... I would show you... but we ate it all!  lol
WE are now all chilling out with distended bellies... well nothing like Amanda's of course!  I will show you tomorrow .... nite nite.
