We have made some improvements to the festivities, the two worst bits (visiting people) are unavoidable but we have changed things a little.
We are not having a roast for Christmas lunch. We are having a nut roast, stuffing and sausage sandwich instead. We made the trifle yesterday and decided to start eating it last night, it was a very good decision! For anyone interested it was made from Just Wholefoods jelly crystals, Basics mandarin orange segments, Birds custard made with almond milk, Soyatoo whipping cream and Sainsbury's sweet confetti.
I haven't switched my phone on and have unplugged the landline. I spoke here about my feelings on over-thanking and over-wishing. If I've seen someone/sent them a card/ spoken to them in the past few days there's no need for phonecalls, texts or messages on social media to send best wishes that have already been sent.
For the next couple of hours it's just us, Sky Sports News and a big dish of jelly!
