Christmas Day :-)

So, Christmas Day 2010.

We've had a quiet one this year. The kids are with their mother, so it was just the two of us and what a lovely lazy day we've had.

Spent the morning on the computer for aboutan hour, then watched "Family Film of the Decade" which was Shrek? I would have thought Harry Potter could easily have pinched that one.

We then watched 2 and a half episodes of season 6 of "Lost". We have BT Vision which is loads better than Sky and better value for money (we're not keen on giving our hard-to-come-by cash to greedy old corruptNew Zealander men - go Vince Cable!!!), and they have "box sets"! of TV series which you can watch at your leisure with no ads, and "Lost" was added at the beginning of December. I say 2 and a half because we were cooking our Christmas Lunch - a slow-roasted boned leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary, roast potatoes and parsnips (done in the lamb fat) with Yorkshire puds, Pigs In Blankets and stuffing balls.

Here's the leg of lamb, just out of the oven:


Here's the pot of Bisto I used to make the VERY thick gravy:



And here's the gravy in the pan, bubbling away nicely (with added lamb juice for all you veggies and health Nazies out there):




And the end result - a table of food, ready for "Top of the Pops" and the Queen's Speech:
