With the incredibly enjoyable Christmas Eve present unwrapping event done and dusted, it was on to the main event, Christmas Day itself. This year we opted to join Monty (now a pensioner, so guaranteed to be home every Christmas from here on out), Cheryl, and their brand spanking new kitchen for Christmas lunch at the Montgomery Clan Stronghold, which was a particularly good choice given the fact that all parties attending were to bring some sort of mains – in other words, a LOT of varied food would be on offer! :)
Robert, Peter and Gail joined us for the day, and what followed was a fantastic day of lots of talking, laughing, Christmas crackers, Christmas hats, drinking and of course eating (gammon, lamb, sirloin, pork neck, etc), not to mention the sheer delight that Jessica exuded after learning that there were in fact, lying under Oupa and Ouma’s Christmas Tree, still a few more presents which HAD to be opened.
Oh, and Chantelle capped off a marvellous day with some ice cream and her world famous baked cheesecake (topped with cream and raspberries) for dessert!
All in all, a Christmas day well spent I (and my stomach) would have to say…
