Due to the maid's absence, I have been doing the washing and ironing and talking in my sleep that I have not been updating my blog.....Xmas has come and gone, and it is now Boxing Day (night) and I am at Xmas Eve blogwise...hehehe
Christmas Eve Dinner at my house...
I took out my Christmas decor late the night before because the maid has gone home and did not even set up the tree...oh well, no tree never mind, at least my dinner table looked festive and Christmassy!!!
Cheers!!!! my family is cosy, I am so glad I have a little girl at home (not so little any more hehehe) and my younger extension of the family.....look at my big sister's extension below .....looooonnng extension .....,right?

I got some of the poinsettias and baubles from Small Ah E, and the small Santa is from my nephew in US...it lights up and says "ho ho ho" when you hit it
champagne glasses also from Small Ah E, and my centrepiece now looks festive

She was held up by the bad "EVE" home rush traffic and once she reached my kitchen she got down to work immediately!!!
