How was your Christmas? All the blogs I have read recently you all enjoyed your Christmasses. Ours was very, very quiet. We knew it would be as we have already celebrated, so we just took it as an ordinary Bank Holiday. We didn't even have our Christmas lunch on Christmas Day! Not sure what happen there! Think it had something to with the chunky bread and smoked salmon we had about lunch time, we intended to have the cooked Christmas meal early evening, but the bread and smoked salmon was a bit filling! We enjoyed it even more the next day. We just chilled on Christmas Day!

It was lovely surprise our son Robert rang from Cambodia on Boxing Day, he was going to ring the day before but apparently the Vietnamese turn the international phone line off over night.........
I would like to share with you a line from his email which I read before the surprise phone call

|My Christmas Soup!
Heat about quarter pint chicken stock and finely sliced onion, carrots and Brussels Sprouts (they are only fairy cabbages really!) until soft and herbs of your choice. Add either tin of Tomatoes or packet of Passata then fill the tomato tin/passata packet up twice with water add to pan, add some frozen peas, I also added two large mushrooms, but you could add pasta instead, at the same time add any left-over cooked chicken. Make sure all the vegetables are cooked and the chicken is thoroughly heated through and serve.
