My mouth is watering!

Have you managed to get a turkey? I heard on the news here today that Norfolk turkey farmers can't get any of the native population to slaughter their turkeys. They rely on european, seasonal workers for the job and  Brexit has put a stop to that. Heard later in the day that 5 000 emergency work permits are being granted.

BBC has had that story for a while. Although I have added a full turkey to my menu that doesn't happen these days, it's just a small turkey crown as there is only the two of us to eat it. Only one daughter has Christmas dinner with us, and she is vegan = nut roast or Beetroot Wellington. The other three children are grandparents and have their own family dinner. They, and their partners, all call in during the day. The grand kids plus great grand kids it is normally Boxing day or later as they also have partners parents and grandparents to visit. So our bungalow has the 'after dinner buffet' for about three days  :)

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
