I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. We had Chris's Mum down over the festive period and we all had a really enjoyable time, particularly when we played the word game. I wonder if you have ever played it?
You all write 6 or 12 names of famous people on little slips of paper and put them into a 'hat'. Round 1 is the description round, round 2 is the describing with one word round, and round 3 is the miming round 'a la' charades. You are in two teams and there is a describer and the rest of the team guesses.
Nana was very funny as she kept shouting out the names for the wrong team. She was playing with Daniel and Sophie and it was just as well she was shouting out, or Chris and I would have been even more comprehensively beaten!
Not that I minded as I had already indulged in a couple of 'Baileys on the rocks' although I forgot to buy hot chocolate so I couldn't try Baileys in hot chocolate which I had been looking forward to. Mind you, after the indulgence of our Christmas lunch, I'm not sure I would have had any room left.
Sophie took some photos of our Christmas table, one or two of which were very arty – perhaps we should print them to use as decoration next year. Sophie and I were both working Boxing Day and the day after, but we are off for New Year so we have come out to Spain with Daniel to celebrate New Year Spanish style.
I think I heard that there's a tradition to eat a grape for each of the bell chimes at midnight – not much fun if you don't like grapes! Poor Chris had to stay home as he has a New Years Eve gig … well someone had to look after Poppy!
Happy and Healthy New Year to you all and if your New Year Resolution is to drop a few pounds, join me at midnight on January 5th for the launch of the Diet Chef TSV with some new recipes. Thank you for all your lovely comments throughout 2011 and here's hoping for lots more communication in 2012!
Much love, Julia xx
