Final Happy Christmas

It's Christmas eve
The Muppet Christmas Carol is on in the kitchen. This will be followed by Polar Express and then Nightmare before Christmas.
DS has made the sweet cranberry sauce and I have stuffed and put the turkey in the oven.  I always cook it today: takes all the stress out of cooking it on Christmas day.

Hubby is peeling potatoes and I will finish the carrots, leeks and of course sprouts and they will all sit happily until tomorrow.

We have had a bit of a set back in that I have shingles: all along from my surgery scar to across and up to my spinal cord.  We thought it might be linked to you know what and I bet the dr has never ever had anyone say ' Phew....Yay, Shingles!' and dance around his surgery before!

I am in a lot of pain but I've very nice pain killers and I refuse to lose my Christmas spirit and actually am quite pleased that at least I know now why I have been feeling so rough and not up for anything like stitching!

 Don't forget to enter my giveaway which will be drawn after Christmas.  It is open to everyone, international post is fine.  I have it on good authority that Santa will help and lend me a reindeer to keep the costs down!

 I'm away now but want to wish each of you a very happy, healthy and joyous Christmas.  May it be filled with perfect moments and a sense of peace xxxx

See you soon.
