The final countdown

Well I'm on my final countdown here @ number 6. Another early start saw me at the supermarket just after 7am to get the final bits of shopping so my list is now looks like this

Turkey - bought
Christmas pudding - bought (although not impressed with the total lack of choice so might make one)
Brandy butter - bought
Stuffing - made
Bread sauce - made
Pigs in blankets - made
Cranberry sauce - made
Vegetables - bought
Wine - bought
Baking - almost done, just Nigella's rocky road to make
Tree - decorated

Trimming up - done

Table - sanded, varnished and decorated

 Presents - bought but not wrapped
Christmas stockings for Charlotte's future niece and nephew - almost finished, just need features and sparkles adding

Even got a fairly clean house!! Don't ever remember being at this point on the 22nd before so what have I forgotten? Maybe after all these years I've finally 'cracked it' So all that remains is for me to wish you all
