I'm not a huge Christmas fan, but with a young grandchild, I'm currently enjoying it more than usual. We've had a nice holiday. Lovely lunch, fed the swans, geese and ducks on our local lake, nice evening opening pressies and watching grandson engrossed in each new thing.

BUT the loveliest bit has happened just now. My darling boy came into my room to calm down a bit after his bath, to watch some In the Night Garden, before bed. He's so zonked, he fell asleep on my pillow. Such a vision of beauty and love. I feel as if my heart could burst.

What has been your nicest Christmas experience this year?

Also from DGS. We always have a starter on Christmas day dinner, but have problems with allergies, so I bought a pack of ready to cook cheese soufles from a supermarket. When I opened the pack they were very small, cocktail canape size. So to dress them up a bit I put some cream and grated cheese over them and a slight shake of paprika before serving .

DGS looked at his tiny cheese canape, with a bit of suace and paprika round it and said. 'Oh Grandma, it looks like something on Master Chef' !!!!

Lots of us at my daughters yesterday evening little Grt GD 2yrs disappeared into the bedroom with Mum I went to retrieve my coat and she was behind the door so I couldn’t go in saying no Gaga (what she calls me) doing a poo. She likes her privacy.

By far the loveliest bit was getting to see 18 month old dgd open her presents yesterday (never seen any of our dgd do that before) , and her absolute delight with all of them but especially the little wooden doll's high chair and a doll's buggy that we gave her. Her reaction was so much better than we had expected that it really made the day. smile.

For reasons I won't go into, the second-best thing about Christmas is likely to be Jan 2nd!

Ninarosa Una is absolutely adorable, what a lovely wee girl.

One of the many highlights of my Christmas was when my son received a 'book' written and illustrated by his step-son.

It was an imaginative story about how the hero, The Meat Man (my son is the BBQ champion of the family) and Santa Claus defeated Evil Broccoli Man who wanted to take over the world!

It was 6 pages of cartoons and very funny dialogue and my son read it with such enthusiasm and funny voices for each character, that we were all in fits of laughter.

My four little musketeer DGSs getting on so well, as they always do. Especially as the older three cheered on the 2 year old’s cool Baby Shark moves when he was trying to compete with them in a computer game dance off. smile

Ninarosa, your little Una is just adorable.
