I think that most of us have had one or another disaster on christmas day; like the time when the turkey was underthawed,or the next year putting the turkey in the shed to thaw in plenty of time...... only to have a warm spell and the said bird reeking to high heaven.

The chrismas when the whole street had a power cut,so all the neighbours with gas ovens desparately tried to cook two turkeys to help out.

My fav was not at christmas,but still makes me smile. My family was visiting my sister for dinner,she was very proud of her new,French casserole dish.All afternoon we were tortured by delicious smells coming from the kitchen and when we couldn't wait to be fed any longer (seven hungry children) said sister vanished into the kitchen.

As we eagerly waited there was an almighty crash and she came into the room and calmly announced, 'Dinner,is on the floor'.

She had forgotten to don her oven gloves to take out the casserole ond dropped it. :-D :-D :-D
