Christmas Chez Nous

We are into Christmas in a big way in our house. None o' that 'bah humbuggery' for us, no sir! But now we are empty-nesters, so it's a bit different. For one thing, I'm not cooking the gazillion-kilo turkey and trimmings - the two of us wouldn't be able to eat it all before we go away. So we will be dining out tomorrow. Also, no mountains of presents under the tree this year - our present to ourselves and Offspring is a week in Jordan.

BetterArf's gingerbread estateBetterArf is busy doing a research project into gingerbread houses. Every few years she has a go at making these things according to different recipes, and they hardly ever work. Yesterday and today we have an ongoing comparative study. One comes from a generic Christmas magazine, the other is from Martha Stewart and it has the best flavour, apparently.

She is also watching the ultra-cheesy "White Christmas" with Bing Crosby. A preposterous movie.

And of course, no Christmas is complete without the Christmas Singalong at Jebel Ali Cloob (this evening).

I probably won't be allowed to switch on the computer tomorrow, so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
