A Pink Champagne Christmas
Today, we've had a lovely day...the roast I cooked for lunch actually turned out (no near kitchen-on-fire, which actually almost happened the other night...who knew parmesan covered steaks could alight so quickly??)...
The three-layered jelly and custard creations turned out beautifully (after a minor jelly explosion incident at about midnight last night...but hey! The kitchen is now in tones of pink and green....what more could a girl ask for at Christmas?)...
And the pink champagne is currently flowing and bubbly and lovely and chilled.
My two-year-old is very happy, having been allowed to open two presents from her Aunty Nat Nat (2 Hi-Five dvd's and a stuffed white reindeer...good picks, Aunty Nat!)...
Plus she's had some scrumptious roast lamb (got the string out this time...it really is bad for your indigestion, anyway), some roast potoates, some corn on the cob...
And those jelly creations she consumed out of a purple jelly cup in about 2 seconds flat.
Also, while I had some pink champagne (did not even have to write that...you all assumed correctly), I allowed her some Coke. Just a bit. And only because it's a special day.
And she raised her plastic beaker to my glass of bubbly, and said 'Cheers!' to me!!
Was very cute and funny, but left me somehow thinking I'm doing something wrong as a mother...having her say Cheers and all, like she's down at the local pub.
Anyway, it's Christmas, and I wanted to say thanks to all I have this year...my beautiful little family, my baby girl...the ability to have a day of cooking where only small jelly explosions are the worst that happens...and to all the wonderful people, and friends I've made, on Orble.
I love you all.
Wish you were all sitting around my dining room table (or Dusk Devi's, whose table sounds quite large and impressive), having a Pink Champagne Christmas together.
Merry Christmas to you all...
