How we spent Christmas..

Hi guys,

Happy Boxing Day! I hope you’re having a fantastic festive season – if you’re braving the sales today: good luck!

I thought I’d just give you an update on how OH and I spent Christmas yesterday. We had spent Christmas Eve watching all the Christmas specials until around 3am. We both opened a present at midnight (family tradition). So Christmas morning we woke up quite late – 11am for me as I promised my sister I’d make her dauphinoise potatoes to go with the roast lamb for Christmas lunch.

Lunch was at around 3pm as Dad had underestimated how long it took to roast a lamb leg! We had roast lamb, roast potatoes, mash, dauphinoise potatoes, carrots, sprouts, Yorkshire pudding and lots of gravy and mint sauce (not very SW, I know), followed by some Christmas pud & custard.

Presents followed and although I didn’t really want anything, I did get a few great presents. All the chocolates have been given to my OH to snack on when he’s gaming!

These are just a few of the things I received. OH got me a special money box as well as the bookmark/pen set (I love stationery and books!) and he made me a vase with little turtles and ladybirds which I thought was super cute. My mum bought me a watch (which actually fits – my wrists are usually massive and won’t fit normal watches). I also received an owl, some money, an iPod nano for my car and a vent phone holder (really useful).

No Christmas is complete without Christmas leftovers and in true form I got myself a lamb and mint sauce sandwich (again not SW friendly) but absolutely scrummy!

Now I’m tucked up in bed watching rubbish TV and having a snack of clementines. I’m feeling today’s food weighing down my stomach at the mo so I’m looking forward to more SW friendly food which seems kinder to my insides!

I think tomorrow (Boxing Day) will be spent prepping my food for Sunday so I don’t have to worry too much on the day. Other than that I think my house needs an absolute blitz. All my pre-Christmas baking has made my kitchen look like a flour bomb has exploded in it!

So, I shall leave you for now. I may blog on Sunday with all the (not-SW-friendly) food and then it’ll be back on the wagon for me.

Until next time.. x
