This weekend last year was the very start of my bed rest with Rory. We were on a weekend away with Peter and Suzie and while the boys were out training for the Oxfam 100km walk, I lay on the couch ordering Suzie around the kitchen! So it seemed only fair to host Christmas in July this year. Michael and Kate joined us too. I must confess though that with my Rory feeding duties, Colman did almost all of the cooking (I focused on starters and pudding for dessert)! He really cooked up a storm with two chickens on the BBQ and lots of roast veggies.
We ate dinner after Rory was tucked up in bed but while he was up he got really into the Christmas spirit! We pulled out his Christmas sock to see if we could recreate his photo from last Christmas and while he had room to spare last time, now he’s way too big!
It was a fun evening and in true Christmas spirit we all ate way too much with generous servings of pudding tipping us all over the edge! Winter is definitely a better time of year to indulge like this!
