Best Wishes to Petal & Husband on their Silver wedding


Heather
I've started to make my Sherry Trifle, and I've left the sherry to soak into the sponge overnight.
Had a wee glass of sherry while it was open. Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. tongue.gif

Will put in the fruit and jelly tomorrow and make a pot of Minestrone soup for Christmas Day. I'm also making a Waldorf salad for starters.
wellfield
Now see what you've done Heather!you just had to mention Sherry Trifle!!
Heather

Sorry Petal I missed your silver anniversary, many more happy years together in Good Health. biggrin.gif

Never mind the Sherry Trifle, Please may I have the starter, Waldorf Salad. mmmmm smile.gif

Am so tired now, hopefully be refreshed in the morning, have to go into town for one more present, here was me thinking all were wrapped and ready, ah well, will rack my brain thinking of some kind of surprise gift.

I've been asking my wife for ages to make a trifle,to no avail,she used to make them quite often,but I see she's making an apple crumble with birds custard for our Christmas dinner dessert,so thats a close second.

Heather
The trifle sponge was still too wet this morning because I put too much sherry in it. I had to take some out and put more dry sponge in. The bits I took out I threw into the garden and the birds ate it. So if you see some birds staggering around, they came from the East End of Glasgow laugh.gif
stratson
laugh.gif Oh Heather, you are a one,the birds just might stay and chirp while you are asleep!
Looking forward to my Waldorf Salad, am sure when you set it in your glasses or whatever it will all be gone...... ..Nice thought though.

Went into town earlier today after a lot of searching got Ralph Lauren Polo Eau de toillette for my son, it's the only after shave he uses., also got a couple of nice v kneeck cashmillon fine sweaters for him, could not believe how cheap they were..
Will wrap them tonight as he is in my house right now so will have to wait til he leaves.
The town was so busy and it was so warm, mind you I was dressed like Nanook of the North. When I got home went straight into shower so am sitting in my lounger right now.

Would love to go to Midnight Mass, howeve will content myself and go tomorrow morning.

Heather, your table will be gorgeous with your sister's gift, centre of your table.
I wish you and everyone of my dear friends a Very Happy Christmas.
Joy and Blessings everyone>>>>x x x x x x x x x x x x
Heather
Well I've just got the potatoes to peel. The table is all set for six of us, the good china, cutlery and wine glasses.

Isn't it amazing the nice tableware we all have and very seldom use it. rolleyes.gif

I think I deserve a wee cup of tea. Then I'll peel the potatoes, and have a shower.

I'm on 10-30 Mass tomorrow.

Stratson that was some nice bargains got.


penny dainty
Merry Christmas to everyone from here downunder.

RonD
We normally go to Mrs. RonD's sister on Christmas Eve but its been raining and expected to freeze overnight so we stay in tonight and will traipze over tomorrow morning and enjoy the day there. I was that little shop again today helping out. It was very busy but its fun helping people out with their last minute shopping and as I predicted to the grand daughter of the owner, an hour before closing it was mostly men who came into the shop with a panicked glazed look in their eyes, grabbing at anything for a last ditch effort at Christmas shopping! huh.gif mellow.gif

Just relaxing on my Desktop and thinking is time I went to bed. Today when I awake and have had breakfast am off into town, I received many gifts, however have to return a beautiful sweater to M & S, such a pity, a pair of the most gorgeous slippers also to a larger size. Am dreading the crowds so am hoping to get in early and perhaps avoid some.

No need to cook tomorrow as have plenty from Christmas Day..

My thanks for the very nice gifts I received particularly a little book on "HUGS", it will remain in my heart forever..
Have had the most happy Christmas day with the favourite men in my life. biggrin.gif
