25th Dec 1946: kids' first taste of turkey

"the front room had a fire in it "

25 Wed. Christmas Day. Mild for the season; very dull, rain later. Cousin Maud and Laurie called. They were going for a little walk before dinner, to get an appetite. This is a memorable dinner for Gwennie, Laurie and Donald as they are to taste turkey for the first time to-day. Mrs, Child sent me a pair of thick woolly gloves she had knitted – wasn’t that kind of her. Ciss & I had Christmas to ourselves. We played dominoes and the spelling bee card game. I also played Beethoven as the front room had a fire in it so it gave me the rare chance - in the winter to have a tune up.
