Happy Boxmas to all!
May I recommend, especially for those who (like us) don't have a dishwasher, buying a few tin foil trays?
Mr P and I used them for the turkey, roast potatoes, parsnips, extra stuffing and pigs in blankets. Much reduced the amount of washing up, and they can all go into the recycling.
And for those with littlies, from past experience when my own were small:
Have 2 identical pillow cases/sacks/stockings, one for them to leave on the end of the bed, the other ready filled in the wardrobe.
If you want to avoid the risk of them waking up at silly o'clock, and being tired and ratty by mid morning, set your alarm for 6am ( or 5, if you can face it!) and do the big switch then.
This gives you time for a cup of tea in peace, and be fully awake to enjoy watching them open their presents.
(I appreciate that everyone does things differently, we had presents from FC at the end of the bed, presents from family under the tree.)
