We had Christmas Eve dinner with friends who have 3 year old twins. The kids were super hyped up about Santa coming that night. It was wonderful but, as I got caught up in their excitement, I couldn't help but think how pleased I was to be past that crack of dawn Christmas morning wake up!
LOL – that sleep-in was not to be…. my Economist son woke me with a text message around 3.30am and followed it up with a phone call just after 5.30am.
Still, I was happy to hear from him as I hadn't heard anything since leaving London. He and his friend apparently got "over" Amsterdam in a couple of days and then headed to Munich. They are now snowboarding somewhere in Germany.
Meanwhile, the manservant and I had a really quiet day just chilling out and catching up.
The Fortnum & Mason pudding was under a lot of pressure and it did live up to expectations - I didn't bother making a brandy sauce; I just poured brandy all over it! I even shared with the manservant.
