We had a lovely Christmas and new year this year, we got to see my family for Christmas, and have a brilliant Christmas day with them and we saw Rich’s family in between Christmas and new year and let off some fireworks.
Christmas was spent down in Reading, with a brilliant day of presents, food, laughter and family. I love Christmas at my mum and dad’s, they love it, and the tree is always full of decorations from my childhood. We always sit fairly reservedly and my dad hands out the presents. This year Ethan got to sit with him and help and he loved it 🙂
Fireworks at Rich’s parents was great fun too, especially when one malfunctioned! It sounds scary and it did make us all jump, but all that really happened was instead of a fountain style firework, we got more of a flashbang effect! The most entertaining part was just afterwards. Everyone jumped, but Carl (very much a grown up brother in law) squealed like a girl. Or maybe a pig. We were laughing our heads off! He’s a great sport though and laughed along with us 🙂
New Year’s eve itself we spent…. in bed. We are not new year’s people. I don’t really get it, it’s just another night to us, and with boys who get up at 5/5:30 am, NOT worth it! I value my sleep too much to be cool 😉 If I had a party to go to or something, then I’d enjoy it, but unfortunately the morning comes around all too fast!
Now for the news…
