I know how you feel Grahame, Pete has never really been a christmassy person so the less christmas stuff the better for him!!! I didn't miss the cooking or fighting with the kids as they won't eat it but it didnt feel christmassy but I still enjiyed the day anyway, The main thing being that the kids enjoyed themselves. Don't know how I will feel next year as my mum will probably be here. Still not cooking though!!!
Hope you had a great time with Jacquis dad. Speak soon
