Post Christmas

Hi All

Gosh I have been very neglectful of my blog, so sorry.

Hope you all have a great christmas.

We had Christmas day with my family and Boxing Day here at home. The Saturday after Christmas we entertain Hubbys family...never as long as I live again!! It was a nightmare from start to finish..Jeremy Kyle or Jerry Springer had nothing on it! We then had to have Julians Dad and his new Spanish lady friend stay with us for 6 days, she speaks no English and he would only translate what he felt like, lukily Rory did AS level Spanish so he helped out! Apart from one of his sisters we were the only ones who would have them as some of them disapprove of it!! We had a few funny moments especially as she insisited on calling us Spanish names I was Luisa ans Julian was Julio! The best moment came in a resturant when she asked "Julio constipado?" which turned out to mean Julian do you have a cold! We now keep asking him how his constipation is much to his annoyance!!! His Dad didnt find it funny but luckily she had a sense of humour and nearly fell off her chair when Rory explained.

I have had the coldy chesty lurgy since Christmas Day and a combination of that ,working and putting up with the F.I.L has left me worn out! My husband describes his father as Captain |Mainwaring on a bad day!! Never a truer word has been said.

I wanted to put  a photo of my Christmas Cake on but it seems to have disappeared . Oh and I must tell you I got my own laptop as a present, I was so lucky> My very own with noone elses games and rubbish on!

Anyway just wanted to say Hi and Happy  New Year

Lots of love Louise xx
