Day 12 – It’s Christmas!!
I know I had initially planned for Day 12 to be Christmas Eve anticipation but after the bitch of a day I had on Christmas Eve my blog was the last thing I felt like doing. Little Miss hasn’t been very well since around Saturday. On Tuesday I took her to the doctor’s and she was prescribed some penicillin. I was told that if she had a reaction to bring her back. She seemed fine with it on Wednesday morning but Wednesday afternoon she started throwing up. So we had a trip to the GP who checked her over and said she didn’t have an allergy to the penicillin and that the excess coughing probably brought on the throw up. Oh fun and games or what?!
Christmas Day was therefore not cancelled and we had family around for Christmas lunch…. we had my Nain (so Little Miss’s great grandmother), hubby’s parents and brother. We had a slight panic over the turkey on Christmas Eve – it hadn’t defrosted much and thankfully my Mam spotted it and sorted it out for us. Whilst Mam was sorting the turkey we attacked the veg so they were ready for Christmas Day. I ordered veg from a local business and they were delivered free of charge on Christmas Eve. Oh they smelt good! Very fresh!!
Christmas Day arrived and we were up at around 7am. Hubby put the turkey in (which had finally defrosted!). The Christmas meal turned out to be lovely! Here’s a photo of me preparing the stuffing and sausagemeat (the wine glass isn’t mine!) and then the cooked spread…. it was yummy!
We had some nice presents as well including new briefcases which will be so handy for work! But my favourite present has to be the “Rocket Powered” t-shirt I got from hubby. Just a shame I’m not going to be able to wear it for a few months. I also love the fact he got me the Nashville DVD Boxset! I can finally catch up with series 2! His presents are the ones on the right – I got him the Marvel Encyclopedia because everytime he sees a Marvel film he asks questions that I can’t answer! So now he can look it up himself!
That was pretty much our Christmas really! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and here’s to a Happy New Year!
