Advent 12 The Christmas table cloth and 35 quick questions

Our eldest daughter surprised me with this present of a Christmas table cloth last year, of course the table was already laid so today is the first time it has been unwrapped.



 It looks lovely on the table - but maybe I should iron it first!




 I shall strangle the first person to spill gravy/wine/custard over it!

Thanks for all the lovely comments and good wishes yesterday, I didn't get round to replying to all so will just explain that Ipswich isn't a huge town compared to some, it has a population of about 135,000. I'm not sure we will save a lot of outgoings moving there because it's gas/electric for heating and Council tax is more in towns too but it will make life easier for the time being. Col has more appointments at hospital next week to try to track down what's wrong. Plus I forgot to say there is also an Asda within a mile of the bungalow and we hope to exchange contracts at the end of February or early March.

  4. A tip for your Christmas table cloth to make it easier to wash....make up a hot corn flower starch for it. once dry then iron the table cloth. The starch acts as a filler in the cloth so the spilled food effectively sits on top of the starch and washes of many times easier in the wash.
