had donned her party dress, prepared nibbles, handed out presents
all whilst super hero of the day cooked a wonderful celebration lunch, at the same time as demonstrating his new coffee maker....
We played games, went for a walk to the park where Matthew and I had a little jog round the running track....and then came home for a lovely tea including salad, various meats and cheese, and Christmas Cake decorated by Izzi.
The whole house was decorated up, and each little corner had some interest. Here are just a very few:
large stars made up by V and paperchains by I,
and a small gingerbread house
V even organised us in a big selfie...
