Well, after school festivities at the start of December, then my birthday and my party mid December Christmas presented even more opportunities to eat and drink to excess. Christmas week we had various friends over, then party on 23rd, Mum's 80th on 24th.....all accompanied by far too much champagne and wine. 25th started with pink Bollinger, then chablis, pomerol and a fine dessert wine. Lunch was foie gras, smoked salmon, turkey and Christmas pud. Boxing day was cold cuts, bubble and squeak, far too much vino and a party in the evening with more champers. I now feel like a beached whale! I shall be strapping myself to that wagon and sticking a plaster over my mouth for the whole of January!
