We are all a bit festived out to be honest but what a fantastic Christmas we had! Sometimes it’s the way that things are great if you’re not really in the mood or looking forward to them and so it proved this time…
It was a quiet Christmas Day full of a lot of food, some pressies and some dog walking. Tom was so excited it was truly magical. We’d been to the crib blessing at the village church the night before clutching his homemade angel for the crib, put out the mince pie and sherry for Father Christmas and sprinkled some nursery made ‘Rudolf food‘ along the path the night before and we thought he would burst but he was up at a reasonable time and bouncing around until his brother surfaced. Every present was an absolute delight, even to the teenager, a proper win!
The big family thing was saved for Boxing Day and so it was off to deepest darkest Winterbourne Stickland for a feast of gargantuan proportions thanks to my parents. Much fun was had by all with this years must have secret santa present – a pack of fake moustaches. I think you’ll agree that we all look amazing!
My favourite was doing a Freda Kahlo impression wearing these as eyebrows, luckily no-one got a photo of that!
Christmas formalities out of the way we all piled into the car, dog and all, to hit the mean streets of South London for a visit to my lovely sister in law. I’m sure that there’s little that’s more of a shock to the system after a hectic and alcohol full Christmas than a large family arriving and taking over your house but they took it well and we had another family party with Mr M’s London based relies while Tommy got excited about every train that passed along the line behind the house.
Highlight of the week was a trip ‘up west’ to watch Priscilla at the Palace Theatre complete with dinner. What a night, I can’t believe this show is closing, it’s fabulous from the descent of the massive disco ball at the start to the glitzy finale. We had incredible seats which gave us all of the best views.
All in all a brilliant week, there’s a New Year on Sunday 2012 sounds so futuristic. I’m not sure what it will bring for us but I hope that it brings everything for you that you wish for yourselves.
Keep the vintage love xx
