Nigella's Christmas Treats

After an anxious and frustrating day - which began with my 90 year old father going into hospital and ended with Marks and Spencer running out of chestnut purée - watching Nigella's culinary La-la land on the telly just now prompted my wife to say, rather wistfully: I wish I was going to her house for Christmas...

Mmm... I see what she means..!

Perhaps... Do you think Nigel goes round for Christmas?

Hope things are going well where your father's concerned.

Christmas here on hold - as he might be in hospital till early/middle of next week. He looks quite thin and frail - though his mind and spirit are pretty altogether and strong as always.

Hope your father is doing well and will continue to improve.

I've also had a 90-plus year old parent (mother) be admitted to the hospital in critical condition a week before Christmas. So I know something of what you're going through. When these things happen, you just do what you have to do to make the very best of whatever situation life has dished out.

You will be in my prayers.

Thanks for your sympathetic good wishes, grizzled.
