Christmas Eve

Posted on 2008/12/31 15:48:58 (December 2008).

[Wednesday 24th December 2008]
In the daytime Chie and I walked across the meadows in Abergavenny for a bit of last minute shopping at Waitrose - most importantly I wanted to get a decent bottle of whisky to quaff over Christmas. Luckily Waitrose had a fairly respectable selection, and I picked up a very reasonably priced bottle of Laphroaig Cask Strength.

Robert came to stay with us over Christmas, and arrived at Vera and Robin's house towards the end of the afternoon. On Robert's arrival we had a rather splendid tea, including some of the excellent Christmas cake I'd picked up in Fortnum and Mason.

We had a thankfully quite light meal in the evening, concious of the impending onslaught of overeating to come over the next few days. Robin seems to be very fond of tarts. There were a selection of tarts - I think the one I had was something like pear and stilton. Dessert consisted of tarts as well.
