Well we did the Christmas thing in the CH on Boxing Day. Mum could not open the presents that I had wrapped for her, although I had used so little tape and the paper was so strong that if you held it your fingers went through. She was pleased I think with the gifts. Dad opened his and grumbled that we had got pyjamas with bottoms which he does not wear. Anyone know a shop that sells only the tops of pyjamas with buttons all the way down like shirts?? The rest got a grunt. I then spent my time marking them up with his name and room number so they should be returned to him after washing. In his room I had to do socks and handkerchiefs. I then went and did the same taking mums things to her room. Before I left he was moaning about my cousins daughter who had come to see him, travelled over 30 miles to get there and she only brought a card. What use is a Christmas card. Mum called him a grumpy sod at that point. Oh how I wish she had been vocal in her previous life. BTW even though we go weekly and when we got there he knew we were visiting on Boxing Day on Christmas day he was arguing with son and D in L that we hadn't been to visit for over 2 weeks.
