I last wrote on Lucia day and much has happened since then. First we had our Christmas party at work which like tradition bids were spent cooking for each other a 3-course dinner. And of course in this was a little competition :-)
I was still very tired from eating the antibiotics and also having the bronchitis but I managed to stay all night!

The days following that was filled with cooking and preparing for Christmas Eve.
Emil came over early for Christmas breakfast. Then a couple of hours later my BFF came with our "adopted" grandchildren and even greatgrandchild. We had some coffee and cakes and exchanged gifts. Very nice and a tradition for many years.

|Danniel smiles, maybe he got some money :-)|
|Pinglan is very interested in what's in the oven|
|Christmas table is set|
|Emil take some ham. We always have cold food before the warm dishes.|
|Cheers and bon appetit!|
Christmas Day we went to Gavle for the next celebration. We got to see most of the grandchildren and other relatives. We were 18 plus one dog (Danniel had Pinglan luckily enough) and we had a great time. We ate, chatted and had coffee. The young ones played cards and they also had a great time.

Today we have just been home, eating more Christmas food and I especially has a very bad foot today. I don't know what has happened but it's all swollen and hurts like h...l.
Tomorrow I'm going to the cinema with my boys to see "the 100-year old that went out the window....." You know I have told you about the book.
On Saturday we are going to our good friends Kitte and Janne for dinner. That will be very nice too. We haven't had time to see each other since summer.
So lots of things going on as usual but nice things and a chance to meet and catch up with family and friends which you normally never have time for.
Take care everyone and I hope you all have had a great Christmas too.
