Boxing Day

Mr K-E and his Dad went to PC World in the morning to get a wireless LAN card for his mother. Christmas is not complete for Mr K-E without a trip to PC World. I stayed at home; PC World is a place that I only visit under extreme duress. According to Mr K-E it was packed, and you had to get a ticket to pay for your purchases. A member of staff there siad they it was the busiest day of the year for them - all those people returning/exchanging their Christmas presents.

B (Mr K-E's brother) and his girlfriend L arrived around lunchtime. We had lots of yummy nibbly things for lunch - prawns in breadcrumbs, brie and cranberry parcels, potato rostis, mini yorkshire puddings etc. Mr K-E's mother had made a delicious chocolate torte.

Then we had round two of presents - I received some book tokens and a bottle of champagne. Mr K-E got some dvds: Ong Bak, Warrior King and Pirates of the Carribean 2.

We had a lovely turkey supper and Mr K-E's Dad broke open one of the bottles of claret that he has received for Christmas. Pudding was ice cream or chocolate torte, followed by cheese and crackers. We finished off with port / amaretto / baileys. It all slipped down very easily.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
