Thursday - Boxing Day continued.
Mike busy carving yesterday's roast beef into slices, as part of today's cold lunch.
Four grandaughters, Amelia, Lucy, Freja, and Tuva watching Grandpapa in action in the kitchen (must admit there's a certain rarity value in this). Amelia is holding the new great Grandpup, Sheldon. Given that he is still a pup, he's remarkably well behaved and sociable. Not counting Sheldon, there were nineteen of us present.
Above are ten of the nineteen enjoying a sherry before lunch in the drawing room.
Granddaughter Georgie officially announced today, that in July she and Andy confidently expect to add the first of a new generation to our family. The last member of the family to be a great grandfather (Mikey's Grandfather, Noel) titled himself 'Pa Magna' and as he is no longer around to enjoy that title I intend to assume it. I know he wouldn't have minded.
By about five thirty every one (except of course Ruth and the girls) were on their way home. We've done most of the clearing away since then, and all's quiet again. Been a lovely Christmas - so far.
Good night All.
