We have to be careful what we wish for but as my blog name says I just dream of a simple life ..... enough money to pay the bills, to eat well and keep warm. Most of all I hope that we all keep fit and healthy to welcome in many more Christmases to come. I am extremely lucky that I still have both my parents but am well aware that we are all getting older and I am getting higher up the pecking order!!!
It would be lovely if we could all have a mahoosive Christmas together and I have often talked about it with my brother and sister and as our families expand we are now up to 26 of us. None of us have a house big enough to take everyone for dinner at the same time so we are thinking of renting a large house similar to the one we spent my 50th birthday in last year.
We had a great time and if we all muck in with cooking and can find a turkey big enough I know it will be a Christmas to remember. I really don't mind preparing our own dinner and have always refused to go out and pay over the odds for frozen veg etc .... there is nothing like homemade.
When we all get together on Christmas evening we must make a point of making a decision and with the aid of the internet find ourselves somewhere for next year ... hopefully x
