Boxing Day 2006

Oliver delivers a present.

Today was a very special day for us for two reasons. Firstly, we were able for the first time to invite my family round for Boxing Day dinner. We've never had the room before. OK, so this time three people still sat on the sofas with trays rather than at our new table for 6, but hey, it's still a big improvement.


Hayley not only cooked for the 9 adults and Oliver but also cooked two more dinners which she delivered to a friend. So the kitchen was a scene of frantic activity!

The second reason today was special was that we were able to tell our families some special news... which made my Mum cry (but in a good way!).

Everyone seemed to enjoy the day. And we certainly did. Oliver particularly enjoyed giving out presents, as it gave him the opportunity to tease everyone.
