Grandmother Says ‘Pay Up Before You Eat Up’ Christmas Dinner

A British grandmother came up with a way to make some money while preparing Christmas dinner for her family.  52-year-old Hayley Garbutt charged each of the family members $45 for a plate at her dinner table. As a result of her um, admission charge, Garbutt’s three children, their partners and her four grandchildren enjoyed a lavish meal.

Garbutt said,”It’s not that I’m being tight; it means I get to spend more in other aspects too like presents.  This year the family dined on an assortment of meats and champagne as well as King prawns, to pizza, to homemade quiches.” She also added that her family is “spoiled at Christmas but that’s part of the fun of it.” (Sources: New York Daily News &

She paid nearly 400 bucks for the food and that is in addition to the Christmas gifts flanking her tree so I suppose she figures why not recoup some of the cash spent. ~Randi

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
