I know it's a bit of a stupid question 'what are you doing for Christmas dinner', I am not talking about what food you have or where you open presents but I mean, do you have a meal at home, just you and the kids, or do you go to the in-laws, friends houses or your own parents?
We have always gone to my parents house and are probably going to go there again this year but I do feel sorry for my mum sometimes. She's one of those women that wont let you help, she prefers to cook, clean and organise everything her way and I hate to think of her being run off her feet on Christmas day running around after everybody whilst also having Thomas following her shouting 'grandma, grandma, grandma'
So I have been wondering whether I should do Christmas dinner at our house this year and invite my parents and my younger brother too so they can sit back and relax whilst we do everything for a change.
I guess we would need to maybe organise our livingroom a little though before it came to the big day so that we could fit everyone in. We would need to get and extending dining table so that it will easily fit at the back of our livingroom whilst not in use but can also extend to fit everyone on it.
Needing to go out and buy a turkey big enough to feed us all and all the extras too.
Extra food and drinks to make sure we have enough for everyone. Extra cutlery and plates, glasses and placemats. We would need to make sure that we even had extra dessert as I cannot be doing with missing out on that.
I think it would be a nice change to have dinner at our house and let my parents get a break from the Christmas day rush. Let them enjoy themselves as, after all, they have been doing the Christmas dinner for the past 20 odd years since we were kids and I think they deserve a break!
What are you doing this year for Christmas dinner?
