Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Millie, Badly Drawn Mum

It’s not over yet, so I don’t want to jinx it (or ‘put the gob on it’, as my Auntie Lil says), but Christmas has been a resounding success. Yes, the turkey was as dry as an old man’s heels, despite everyone chipping in (repeatedly) with their fail-safe tips for a juicy bird. Yes we finally ate at 4.15pm rather than the intended one o’clock sharp, so were already full on crisps and selection-box chocolate. And yes, instead of helping with the cooking, M.I.L. stood over me with her bad-smell face on, saying things like, ‘Oh, you make your stuffing like that, do you?’

BUT we are all still on speaking terms. And this, I think, makes it a triumph.

There you are: the secret to a happy Christmas – keep your expectations low. That’s why I’m pleased with my presents. Lesser women might be disappointed with a Keep Calm and Carry On mug, tea towel and biscuit tin. But not me. Uh- uh. I’m just impressed with the scope of the range.

In fact, I can hear them all downstairs, laughing. There’s a veritable Everest of washing up to do, and the kitchen floor looks like we’ve opened an animal sanctuary in there. But I’ll sort that out later. Right now I think it’s my turn at Pictionary.
