Fabulous Christmas and New Year

I think I had one of my best Christmas and New Years ever. What a fantastic time we had as a family. On Christmas day we had the whole of the Birger family round – i cooked the turkey for 12 people – and still managed to over cater though – if you have been round you know I always manage that. Rebecca loved seeing Uncle John and took most of his time up through the day!! I managed to keep the turkey dishes coming for the following four days after Christmas!!

We saw quite a few people over the break, including a trip up to Ipswich to see ash and debs and their family. Rebecca and James love to see them – and we had a lovely walk to Pin Mill – what a beautiful location.

The Watts family on the beachNew Years Eve was also particularly splendid with Warren, Zoe, Geoff and HJ popping round for a slow roast lamb (out of Jamie Oliver – a delicious recipe) and a suitable hangover the following day.

Below are some of a walk round the Cuckmere Valley which is stunning, a very cold beach trip – but the children love seeing the beach 🙂

I also managed to get masses of work done – mostly on the new Grant and Stone web site which should be going live next week I’m hoping. I think it is one of my best so far if not the best. Huge amount of pages.
