It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I'm finally on holiday but suffering from another round of nasty bugs!  The food shopping was done this morning at 8am and Sainsbury's was pretty busy even then.  I used my points to buy our Christmas meal and had plenty left over to donate.  Grand total in money was £49.35 but I got it all free :-)  That doesn't include the turkey (OH gets that) but everything else is in there.  Plus there will lots of leftovers to feed us for another couple of days. 

Our menu is fairly simple.  Marinated prawns to start (cheese stars for The Teenager), turkey with all the trimmings and veg (or 3 Kings cheese tart) and trifle or Christmas pudding for dessert. 

I've done the last of my present shopping too.  I've managed to make a few gifts which pleases me greatly but I won't post pics until after the day ;-)

So for the rest of today I'll be drinking lots of hot drinks, wrapping presents and watching a movie or 2 to get me in the mood.  Tomorrow I'll start prepping the food to be transported to OH's house. 

Really is beginning to feel like Christmas, at last!!
