|Sandra's Dad and Sonia waiting for Xmas lunch.|
We had Christmas lunch with Sandra's dad and his friend Sonia at the Rose & Crown in Gilberdyke. The food was excellent and while Geoff stayed quite traditional with duck we three deviated somewhat from the norm and had sea bass, langoustines and scallops for our main course. Anyway it was all fantastic food and great company, it's certainly the best Christmas lunch we've ever had out, and by no means the most expensive.
|Sunset outside the pub after xmas lunch 3:30 here - Shocking!|
|Adam, Libby and Jo show off their new bikes.|
All the grand kids seemed to have got what they wanted from "santa" despite Chris and I have to do an eleventh hour mercy dash to town at nearly tea time
on Christmas eve when Adams xbox blow up and most of his presents needed it to be working, fortunately we managed to get a new one unfortunately it was another couple of hundred quid which could have stayed in Chris's wallet!
|Finley & Mason walking the river bank.|
On Tuesday we had another mission of mercy to perform as Gary and Claire came down with a mystery D&S bug (I suspect it was food related!) and we had Finley and Mason for the day. We had a great day together out walking on the river bank but when you start to feel anno domini pulling at you something has to give and the next day Sandra was totally shattered so the promise to take them out to McDonald's was put on hold.
Anyway we are setting off back to Athens on the 21:45 train from York on Saturday so we should see the new year in at Manchester station all being well, but the good news is we will be back in Greece on New Years Day.
Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!
