12:33:31 The rather gloriously over-packaged champagne and chocolates from Fortnum and Mason.12:34:55 it is all opened up - isn't that wonderfully lavish?12:40:37 ...still unwrapping presents!

12:40:45 12:51:47 12:54:44 All three of Vera's children (Dad, Robin and Louise) all just happened to be in the kitchen at the same time, so I thought i'd make a good photo opportunity.

13:25:06 ...the adults milling about the kitchen. Chie rather likes this picture.13:32:04 Liz and the kids at the table.13:32:08 Nice shot of the three kids here.

13:49:27 13:51:09 We wanted to take a "four generations of Hawkinses" picture, but unfortunately William point blank refused. So we've just got three instead.13:59:51 Aileen and the kids on the sofa.
