Fancy A Chocolate Anyone?

 Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  

Christmas Eve was a busy one between tidying up the house, wrapping presents, delivering presents - phew quite exhausting!!  Fell into bed around midnight I think and promptly fell asleep.  Bliss!!!!

 Emma woke us all up about 8.30am and the present opening ceremony began.  We were all very lucky and received beautiful gifts.  

 Laura received this huge box of chocolates - seems to go on forever don't you think?  They are rather tasty as well - I am a sucker for chocolates  - yummy!!!!

My mum and dad were coming around for dinner - no pressure on me there then lol.  I don't know about you but I start out fine and by the time to dish up I am flustered and feeling the heat somewhat. It all seems to come together in the end though. And, even if I do say so myself - it was very tasty (pats self on head, he he). Everybody said they enjoyed it so that was fine.

 After dinner we all sat around blethering for a while - nice and relaxed - while my girls tidied up the kitchen which was no mean feat - believe me! They did a wonderful job and it was spotless when they were finished. I think I may keep them lol.

In the evening we watched Ice Age and Independance Day on the telly while having a wee Bailey's Cream drink mmmmm.

 What a perfect way to end the day.
How was your Christmas day?

Całkiem miło spędziłam Święta, w gronie dzieci i wnuczek. Twoje, myślę, były też bardzo udane. Czekoladki smakowicie wyglądają :-). Pozdrawiam
Sounds like a pleasant and very delicious Christmas.

That sounds like a wonderful Christmas! I am glad that Laura shared her chocolates and that you didn't have to clean up the kitchen yourself. A Merry Christmas, indeed!

I love your photo, and I also love chocolate. Fortunately I got a big box this year, I'm trying to save it, but I don't know how long it will last ;) Hugs from Anette in Norway :)
