We had our delayed Christmas dinner, nothing too grand. Gammon, roast potatoes and parsnips, carrots, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.

After washing up, we sat and played several levels of Overcooked 2, a lot easier but way more confusing with 4 of us. Note to self, keep out the way of DDiL’s on screen character, she whizzes around like crazy when cooking and DS just biffs you out the way, cos it’s fun - not!

We paused to have cheesecake then opened our Christmas Eve secret Santa presents. Some great things. Each has to be useful and cost £1 or less. I got bubble bath, some soft grip pegs, nail files, foil dishes for the freezer, a mini dehumidifier and some stuff to deep clean the washing machine.


  1. Great idea for the secret Santa. All of the gifts useful. I confess I've never heard of the game.

    1. It’s something DB’s family have done for generations. There was a time when gifts were 6d!
