A huge thank you to all who sent messages last week. It was an extremely difficult week and it was very touching to receive messages of condolence and sympathy, many from people I only know online, I really appreciate your support and friendship.I am back home with my mother, N-J and the boy and of course Big G. We are totally not prepared for Christmas but at least we have a couple of days to try and organise ourselves. I guess that by the time I realise it actually is Christmas I will be packing up the tinsel and it will be over for another year. Not much to blog about at the mo unless I document the usual festive fiasco of trying to feed the fussy philistines.... one diabetic with high cholesterol who doesn't like anything anyway and one allergic to dairy, tomatoes and citrus who thinks there is a huge conspiracy and we are all trying poison him with cheese! Currently I'm stockpiling Mothers Pride white (thin) sliced, it's going to be a gourmands delight chez moi, bon appetit!
