The presents are wrapped – well most of them, and as is German tradition I am starting the prep work for our evening meal and the arrival of the Kristkind.
There will be potato salad, but I am substituting the traditional roasted goose with chicken and just to add a bit of “SAFA Style” to the mix – a stuffed beef fillet on the braai.
I am deriving a huge amount of pleasure seeing the expectation and excitement on Eldest’s little face as he has counted the days on his Advent Calender till the 24th!
My house is going to be busting at the seams with family and friends staying over, even the lounge floor will be occupied with sleeping bodies. Will I have enough food? Will there be enough drink? I’m not sure, but welcoming family and friends from near and far all under my roof is a Christmas blessing I am thankful for. (The clearing and cleaning up afterwards, well that I may not be so thankful for!)
Wishing all of you light and love over this festive period.
