Oh, yes--we always do this: big dinner on Christmas Eve and just bits and pieces on Christmas day. Muuuuch better. I'm glad it worked for your family, too. Happy New Year!


Wishing you a wonderful year ahead Nicky!

I think the relatives would revolt if we did that!! Looking forward to wedding pics! What a great way to ensure you always have a party on your anniversary! t.xx


Happy New Year to you and your family.Looking forward to seeing the wedding photos

That idea sounds really nice. Good to hear it from the perspective of someone who usually has it on Christmas day. Often you hear it from people who have always done it that way, and therefore I am less likely to sit up and take notice. I do think there would be complaints but it would take away that horrible anxiety on Christmas morning. I could just sit and put in batteries, and undo stupid packaging, without worrying!

Hi Nicky,
Lovely to hear from you again! I especially like the photo of your little dog in his green outfit and am looking forward to seeing your "12 days after Xmas!"X

Happy New Year sweetie...what a brilliant idea...I think I may suggest that to the family for next year...did you get a Cath K sewing box? Polly wanted one and they had sold out hope they bring a different design in the new season........


That's actually more traditional than having the dinner on Christmas day. Somes like a great idea. We try to do things in Christmas eve to so that it's like a mini Christmas otherwise, as you say, the whole thing is over in a flash.


Hi Nicky, Just popped in to admire your blog and I hope you don't mind me asking but I love your sewing box featured on the bottom left photo. D'you mind telling me where you got it from?
Love your blog!
