Will it be ok to store in fridge till Christmas day? Have to buy today as I'm specifically going to traditional butchers in parents town. Then bringing back home on train. Should I be freezing it and taking out on 24th? I've asked for a small one.

You will need to ask the butcher.

My butcher would say it would depend on the temperature of your fridge. If your fridge is a tad on the warm side, it will be an accident waiting to happen.

Ummmm. It has temperature control and I've lowered it to 3C. DH is a bit of a food hygiene fanatic, I'm more laid back. If he puts his foot down I'll pop it in the freezer.
