Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, I'm feeling very sorry for my poor friends who had to work - it sucks! Because Christmas fell on a Friday most of them had to work the whole weekend too, which is pretty pants. I was thinking of them all!
I went up North on Christmas Eve, with the roads getting snowier and snowier as we went. Got to see Em for a few hours which was lovely and then headed to my Dads house. We woke up on Christmas day to a lovely white Christmas (although it wasn't official as it didn't actually snow on the day). My dad lives in a converted mill and in the morning a local band came to play some Christmas carols while the residents handed out mulled wine - pretty surreal and beautiful with all the snow! We then opened our presents and started getting everything ready for lunch. There were 9 of us all together so lots of food to cook! Lunch was lovely although as always I ate too much. We then chatted for hours and drank lots of wine and port and continued the eating!
I got some amazing presents from my husband, my favourite being a mustard yellow vintage train case and a beautiful cushion that I'd had my eye on for ages. I got him lots of Kid Robot goodies and a half knitted scarf, oops!
It was a different Christmas day to normal but lovely, especially with all the snow!
