    Amazingly Asda was pretty good last night, no more busier than normal rush hour, no shortage of vegetables, the only thing we had to compromise on was washing up sponges :lol:, all the tills were open so no queues. Expected a wait for the taxi so got out a sandwich to eat, one bite later and the taxi turned up!

    I've got a turkey crown and it'll be going in the oven at about 4.00pm. Should only take a couple of hours and then it's warm turkey sandwiches for tea =P~

    I'm going to cut up my veg later tonight and leave in the pans in water and just shove the lid on.

    And I've got the Champers in the fridge ready for my glass tomorrow...I'm drooling at the thought.

    Then Ta daa all ready for tomorrow.

    Have to go see the folks in the morning and swap gifts. Then I make us lunch and then it's off to my parents for a buffett tea and see my sisters and all the kids.

    Charm X
