Christmassy weekend

Well I know we have been a bit quiet with the blog, but we have just enjoyed not doing much over the last few days.. Oh we have been busy like sorting out Christmas presents and we have started our cards for this year. Then there's the normal cleaning Derwent6 and chopping wood to keep warm.. Al has been into Rugby a few times just so we can have our Christmas treats and get in the spirit of things as the town is well decorated. Last weekend we went down to Joy and Steve's for our annual get together. Joy had cooked a lovely meal at their house, so we got the train down to Reading and was picked up by Steve and delivered to a well decorated Christmassy house. We had a lovely evening and Al even got to see her Strictly as Joy loves it too..
The food they had done was just the best and the cheese board we will never forget..  We stayed the night so a few bottles were drunk including a drink which was a mix of wine and chocolate and a lot of port..
We went to bed late as you can image... We were treated to breakfast in the morning and then got the train back later.. We arrived back at Derwent6 at 3.00pm and warmed her back up for the evening..
On the Monday Al was back down to meet her Dad at King's College hospital in London for his first 6 week check.. She then went back with her Dad in the evening and stayed the night.. She got back on the Tuesday at 3.00pm.. So we have and haven't been busy..

We had a lovely weekend...thanks for the wines, chocs and most of all your company! :-)

I enjoyed cooking and pleased Del got a chance of savouring my culinary delights at last (especially the bread pudding).

Oh, by the way, the chocolate red wine you enjoyed so much Al is called RUBIS.

Enjoy the rest of your Christmas and New Year celebrations! Speak to you beforehand, but see you in 2014! :-)

Lots of love, Joy & Steve xxxx
