Christmas was………

GREAT !!!

My poor wife slaved in the kitchen for hours, but it was well worth it in the end, we had loads of food. There was a good mix of Nigerian and English food, the obligatory turkey, fried rice, jollof rice, gizzard, chicken, peppersoup, salad, plantain, vegetable, cake, spring rolls, cookies and chocolates; the table was literally groaning under the weight of it all !!

Baby O was surrounded by her cousins, and she smiled all day long and played with everyone, she didn't cry once !! She got loads of presents as well, I'm sure she didn't realise what was going on, but hopefully in years to come, the pictures will make her chuckle.

And yesterday, it was off to Brent Cross Shopping Centre, as my wife went bargain hunting. I had the task of looking after Baby O, imagine me standing in the middle of a ladies clothing shop, feeding the baby ?!?
Anyway, it was back to work today, but it was dead, so the manager promptly gave us all an extra day off.  So tomorrow, I'm going to put my feet up and relax after a frantic loooong weekend !!
