I've had a little break from my blog over the Christmas period, mainly because I've been so busy and haven't had the time to sit down and write a proper post. So I thought the best way of getting back into it would be to write a little bit about my Christmas, even though it was rather uneventful.
Possibly the most exhausting Christmas Eve I've ever experienced...I worked from 4pm until close on the bar at my work, so I did a hefty 9 hour shift. Needless to say it took the life out of me, but it didn't stop me from grabbing a few drinks with friends before going home!
For the first time in around a decade (!) I spent Christmas Day with my dad and his family. My stepmom works for the NHS and always works on Christmas Day, so I usually have a second Christmas with my dad on Boxing Day, but this year my stepmom worked an early shift (5am-midday. Nice) so wanted everyone round for Christmas. We had a lovely day despite my exhaustion and my dad's parents being unwell, and I managed to sneak a two hour nap in after my Christmas dinner, which sadly meant I missed the Strictly special.
I spent Boxing Day with my mum and her family at my aunt's house. She cooked us a meal made up of leftovers and 'picky bits' and we got through a lot of champagne (too much). It was really nice to see everyone as my mum has quite a big family and it's not often that we get to see each other all at the same time, and now that I have younger cousins I don't really see my grandparents a lot as I'm apparently 'too old', below is an image of me with one of said younger cousins.
Well, there's my Christmas for this year. It seems a little dull, but I've worked a lot so haven't done anything ~super exciting~ but I do really enjoy spending time with my family and being able to switch off for a few days.
