I did this for many years on Christmas DayMy parents are determined to stay in their own home and whilst that is getting increasingly difficult we have decided the easiest way is for me to do a 5 hour round trip - that I do every week. A day early and cook a roast. Whilst I will not get to spend much of a Christmas it will reduce stress and confusion all round if it is essentially just another day and I will do Christmas with hubby when it suits us.
Hoping roads will be nice and quiet for a smooth journey
Make your life easy ( I recommend Lidl goose fat roast pots frozen & honey glazed parsnips! )
Year before last cooked 3 Christmas dinners at 3 different houses!
