Christmas is a time for tradition – whether it’s under (or over) cooked sprouts, opening presents in your pyjamas or watching in horror as the dog vomits the brie wheel she stole earlier all over the dining room carpet (yes, that did happen this year. And last year).
Here are a few photos (taken with my new Canon G11, which I ADORE) of Christmas 2010, done my way. Normal blogging shall resume shortly!
Red cabbage awaiting the hob
One of many dogs – Harry, the Miniature Schnauzer
A Wedgewood ornament on the tree
A little bit of Florida sunshine in our frosty conservatory
My Christmas Day outfit – the dress is Ted Baker via charity shop and the pumps are Topshop
Our starter – cream cheese stuffed salmon parcels with prawn salad and tomato salsa
The obligatory cracker joke, which must be read aloud to the table who must laugh politely and/or shout obscenities
Paper hat on and ready for turkey
Roast turkey, carrots, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes and cranberry sauce
A holly sprig as a centre piece
Christmas Pudding all ablaze
A snowy Boxing Day walk – I’m wearing an ASOS cape, Topshop gloves and stole, H&M jumper dress and my favourite Very boots.
