Count down

Christmas Day one week today. Wow. We’re done in terms of preparation. Everything that need sending off has gone, everything that was essential to have here in advance is here – our turkey arrived today as did supplies of animal feed.  We have diesel coming on Saturday’s boat, petrol on Monday’s, more food shopping on Thursday’s. We sent the winkles off today, we have venison going off on Saturday – all weather permitting of course!

I’ve wrapped up all of the gifts for Dragon and Star. We have a kids Christmas party for the nine Rum children on Friday (schooled ones arrive home for the holidays on Thursday) and we even worked out a daily prompter for things like taking the turkey out to defrost and thought ahead about getting ingredients to make turkey curry, turkey soup, turkey surprise…
Now if we could just get a nice fall of snow on Monday that would be about perfect!
