This christmas was incredibly quiet, just with the parents and my sister. Sometimes the quiet ones are the best one though.
I started off the day with a baileys hot chocolate because why not? It was christmas. Then we got stuck into opening presents. This year I just was angling for some money and various little things which I could take away with me travelling.
One of my best presents was actually a massive jigsaw puzzle which I have just finished. I spent part of the day watching Home Alone and Scrooge and trying to make progress with this jigsaw. Alfie was very lucky and got a new jacket from Santa which he loves and looks unbearably cute when he struts around in it.
One of our traditions is the christmas walk with our dog Alfie. This particular christmas had unbelievably bad weather so only half of us braved the lashing rain. On the walk I picked up holly complete with berries, ivy and fern branches to decorate the table with. It’s amazing how much a bit of foliage completes a table!
This was my first year having christmas dinner as a vegetarian and I was very pleasantly surprised. I was expecting to be majorly depressed looking at the pigs in blankets, gravy and delicious turkey but in reality it didn’t even slightly bother me. I had a nut roast which was so delicious. In between courses we played a christmas trivia game which was really fun but I was terrible at.
And that was that, christmas over for another year.
