Hello all, good wishes to you.

Even thought it's only Mr P and I for Christmas, the title seems to sum it up!

Oh, and add "unwrap, rewrap, change foil as previous one no longer fit for purpose"

And the jolly game of "fridge shuffle/hokey cokey" (In out, in out, you move it all about, you shuffle gammon & the turkey 'til you tear your hair out, that's what it's all about)

I used to have to find space for the home made trifle too, but sadly (?) no longer, as Mr P doesn't have a liking for it. TBH, when with ex h, trifle was my choice for Boxing Day breakfast! tchblush

inkcog, what an odd question!

I'm with you on the Boxing Day breakfast trifle!

Yes, I do miss that!

Mr P doesn't really "do" puddings, nor mince pies, hence I've got a whole box of 6 in the cupboard all for me, and a tub of the extra thick brandy cream in the fridge! tchwink

❄️You put your Sausage rolls in (the freezer and forgot to get them out)
❄️You take your Ice cream out (to fit the sausage rolls in and forget to put it back 😱)
❄️Turkey in ( cooked carved and packaged)
❄️Turkey out (For sandwiches)
❄️Ham in
❄️Ham out (bought too much wrap the rest and give to DS)

Shake the fridge about

❄️You do the okey cokey as you knock the pud box on the floor
❄️And you turn around and kick it in your haste
❄️That’s what it’s all about

Forgotten sausage rolls
Liquid ice cream
Too much turkey
Too much hm
And a delicious gateaux that now resembles Eton Mess
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
