Christmas Day was very quiet with just the two of us.
We had smoked salmon with scrambled egg on toast for breakfast then, after a suitable pause, P went out for a 6 mile run. After his return and a shower we had morning coffee. and opened our presents - one each. P said that he had no idea what to buy me so had gone into Peel at the last minute and bought me a pair of "granny" slippers in the little shop on the corner. Unfortunately he didn't know the correct size so they are too small. I shall have to exchange them after Christmas.
I cooked a Christmas dinner for two - roast chicken instead of turkey, with home made pork and chestnut stuffing, pigs in blankets, yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, honey roast parsnips and carrots and sprouts (which P detests so I had them all to myself).
I felt in need of some exercise after all that so after loading the dishwasher we went for a short stroll along the lane. It was very cold with a biting wind but lovely nonetheless.
When we got back, we had our dessert. As neither of us eat Christmas pudding, we had a Belgian chocolate, melt in the middle chocolate sponge pudding. Oh God, how I wish I hadn't eaten that. I still feel full now.
It will be another quiet day for us on Boxing Day but we shall be going to our friends' house for supper in the evening. Unfortunately, there is a storm forecast for tomorrow so I expect it will be quite a wild drive there and back.
Hope everyone had a wonderful day.
