Christmas eve evening for us as children meant a trip around the block to my Nana's house where we would be given our presents and we'd have a wee drink. Well the grown ups did we kids probably got juice. Anyway it always meant that it wasn't long until Santa came and that's when I think the excitement started. A childhood quote from those days was my Nana saying a toast "Here's to temperance" and my dad replying "perish the thought".
Christmas eve also meant a very rare trip to the Chinese takeaway as the turkey was in the oven. It's a tradition we still have in our family today. This year we're going out for a Chinese buffet lunch. can't wait.
Also on the agenda for today is this little mini book I'm giving away. I will provide any title you like to go on the front, you just need to let me know. To be in with a chance of winning just leave a comment and I'll enter your name in the draw. If you'd like to become a follower then you can be entered twice. I'll draw the name on Christmas eve and post out after Boxing Day.
I hope you're all ready for Christmas and that it will be a quiet, peaceful time for you all.
