So Xmas eve tomorrow! Is everyone ready for the big day??

Annoyingly my car exhuast broke last week and I have been a bit stranded, the shops are a long distance away!.. however where I bought it from kindly took it away and welded it all back together for me! So tomorrow I will be doing some last minute shopping. Ive got all my presents sorted, the last one arrived Saturday in the post ( I was getting worried it wouldnt arrive!) so will just have a mooch for any little stocking fillers and will be buying lots of treats from the supermarket ie - Wine, chocolates, nibbles etc!

Have a lesson tomorrow morning, will turn Cyrus out for rest of day and then head straight to meet family for lunch at lovely place nearby we go to every Christmas Eve (bringing change of clothes so don't smell of eau de pony too much :giggle: )

Will go home and have bit of housework to do and present wrapping then down to parents for the evening, my brother, sil and their two cats are staying for a few days.

Then home, relax, put on a Christmas movie and have a glass of wine :biggrin:

come evening I will be getting little one ready for bed, putting out Santa & Ruldolphs plate.... then when shes in bed I shall crack open a bottle of red ( or maybe the homemade Malteaser Vodka may make a small apperance!) and watch some xmas movies! Ive got the Vicar of Dibley xmas special recorded I might watch that to ! ( Love that episode!!)

I will also be devouring lots of nibbles !

Wrapping presents and baking whilst listening to Christmassy tunes! Then I need to pack as we're spending Christmas at my parents.
Christmas Mass tonight before gift dropping at various relatives, then off to my parent's house before retiring to the pub!!

Tonight we are having our special Christmas meal - roast pheasant and a turkey joint. Its SNOWING here so I do feel quite festive!!!! We will open our pressies from each other tonight. Horses are fed up tho - tried to keep them out but they begged to come back in! So I put them into the school - they are managing to look like a pair of charity cases....

DISASTER HAS STRUCK!!!
Mr T now lying on bed. Went off to mend the fence and he's hurt his back and can't move without wimpering. Rang my mum (ex nurse) and she has given me instructions on his care!!! I cannot face taking him down to a and e and quite frankly he will not go!!! Me thinks its a pulled muscle or sciatica not sure which. Anyway that's me cooking the meal! lol Lord only knows how it will taste... hahaaaaa

Oh trews that is awful, dont worry about the dinner, its only a roast with a cracker. And if it goes tits up, fill everyone with wine, so they wont notice.

I am supposed to be working, but we are mainly chatting, eating and tracking santa on NORAD. He has made it to China.

Tomorrow I will be down the yard at 6 at the latest, big haynets and carrots all round.

I hope Mr T recovers soon Trewsers.

We were going to spend the evening at a friend's house. But the weather forecast for this area is gusts of wind, with accompanying rain, sleet or hail, of up to 80-90 mph! So we are staying put with a bottle of wine.

I will pass on your thoughts for Mr T's recovery. He's a little more stable in that he's sitting up now, but I shall keep him rested and keep the warm wheat packs on his back. Just grabbing a pot noodle between chores! lol I didn't realise how much I relied on him for helping me on the yard!!!
