Christmas over for another year.......

I hope all you lovely ladies had a great day and were all spoilt rotten and got everything you wanted, I can't quite believe that's it for another year all those weeks of planning and shopping then planning and panicking and before we know it whoosh it 9pm Christmas night and we're all sat on the sofa fit to burst and desperately looking for something to watch on the tv.

We had quite a relaxed Christmas as the boys are that much older we don't have that major toy hunt for the latest power ranger or action man tank ..........those were the days all those lovely square boxes so easy to wrap.

Now it's smaller things that cost lots more and are not very impressive when wrapped but at least we don't have the huge pile of toys with no homes and have to rearrange bedrooms just to put everything away, or find things in May that still haven't been looked at.

I got some lovely presents lots of Russian dolls, fabric, books, Cath Kidston bag, tins, sewing threads more tins, a gorgeous Boden jacket, I'll take photos of everything tomorrow.

I'm going back to my glass of wine and yet more chocolate.
Speak again tomorrow

Do you know that they don't make Action Man anymore, I couldn't believe it when I was told.
We will definately meet up next year :)

Sounds like you had some great gifts. I find this time of year a bit odd..... you rush to get to Christmas, then it goes in a blink of an eye...then it's the new year & it starts all over again!

Although I sometimes wish the boys were still little, it is rather nice not to be woken up at 4.30 in the morning, and not having dozens of toys to find homes for. Sounds like you had a lovely time, and can't wait to see your prezzies,woohoo, sewing stuff and tins and CK and and and.........

Glad you had a relaxing time, it sounds as though you had some lovely presents.

I feel a bit the same this morning ... can't quite believe how quickly it's all gone!! Always feel a bit glum in this bit between Christmas & New Year, but will get down to some baking today for my son's 13th birthday on New Year's Eve!!
