So I finished work yesterday for Xmas, and it truly has started. This morning we got our Xmas delivery from the Veg Lady, I have been out and picked up the turkey from the local butchers. It’s a big beast at 16lb, I asked the butcher to remove the legs and bone them, so I can make some nice small turkey rolls with them (stuffed with pork and apricot stuffing).

I am now chilled out in the front room, Star Trek the Motion Picture is on TV, Niamh is sleeping on the sofa next to me, and life is great!!

One of the best things I love about Xmas is chilling in front of a good film with laptop at hand, its even better with your first child next to you!
