How I spent Christmas Day

If your anything like me, you might of had a bit of difficulty getting to sleep on Christmas Eve… its still alright to be excited no mater how old you are, right? You might have seen my recent post, 10 things I like about the run up to Christmas, number 10 on the list was Christmas eve drinks, which might have been the reason I struggled to get up… but still made it up for 8am!

We had to start the morning the right way, cracking open a bottle of bucks fizz! Sam and I had so many presents to unwrap, which kept us busy for the next couple of hours… 

Sam had done an amazing job of wrapping my presents and making them look so good! I think we were both really surprised about we’d got each other, as we’d both manage to keep everything a secret!

After we’d finished opening our presents and got ready I went across to my parents for the day and the rest of my family were coming round.

I’d not had chance for breakfast at my house so had a bacon sandwich and coffee with Tia Maria (not as good as my favourite, Baileys)!

There were so many more presents to open, mostly for my nieces.They were well and truly spoilt, especially by me! I love seeing kids faces as they open presents, mine seem to go down well anyway!

The presents kept them busy whilst we had a glass of champagne or 3! There was time to play with some of the new toys before lunch, well the kids anyway!.

For our Christmas lunch we started with a delicious Prawn cocktail, with my Mum’s home made marie rose sauce. I mean what else would you have on Christmas day?

I did suggest a Christmas goose for lunch, but turkey is very traditional in our family. It was served with pigs in blankets, sausages, 2 types of stuffing, roasties, vegetables and the very debatable Yorkshire puddings… I’m not sure they even belong on a Christmas dinner table?!

Christmas day wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas pudding! But not for me, I’ve never been a fan of it! So for me, I had a chocolate bomb pudding, which is a bit traditional for me now and it was so good!

After indulging in so much delicious Christmas dinner, customary chilling out watching Christmas films was needed followed by some old fun games like connect 4 and a few more glasses of wine!

    Looks like a fantastic way to spend Christmas Day! Our day was fairly similar – starting at home with presents and our traditional breakfast of Croissants and Coffee before getting dressed up and loading the sleigh for Leeds.

    Christmas Day is always really busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

    You basically just explained my ideal and pretty much exact Christmas Day! Nothing quite like a quiet Christmas with close family enjoying the simple things in life that make us happy! Game of sharades is also always a requirement in my house x
