Our First Christmas

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and are now finishing off those Quality Streets, whilst trying to stuff all your new socks in your drawers and wearing every new smelly product you were given. Personally I am well and truly into this whole festive relaxation mode…I think I have passed the point of cabin fever and have now wondered over into the ‘hibernation hermit style zone’. Seriously I think if I were to get off this sofa, peel my way out of this onesie and venture out into the real world, I might have a melt down, not to mention suffocate on what do they call it…fresh air?!

Why does Christmas do this to us? You get the go ahead for a few days a year to stay in your PJ’s, eat whatever, watch whatever and basically do nothing and slowly but surely everything starts to shut down and before you know it, having a shower sounds like hard work. Don’t worry, I’ve brushed my teeth. I’m so pleased I did a detox prior to Christmas otherwise who knows what state I would be in…! But Christmas was lovely and whilst I muster up the energy to make another cup of tea and flick the TV channel, here’s a run down on our first Christmas…

I finally finished wrapping our presents…it took hours!

We arrived at Mum & Dads and spent the evening snuggled…
attempting to sing (ruin) Christmas Carols…!
Good Morning to our First Christmas as Mr & Mrs Albury!

He makes me giggle…!
Molly loved her stocking…
although she was a little grumpy when we had to limit her on her treats!
Champagne for breakfast…oh yeah! 
Nanny & Grandad arrived…!

Mum did an excellent job on the dinner with all my Gluten Free substitutes! 

This game kept us highly amused until late Christmas Day night!

So this year, the Fireman has burnt three oven gloves, one of them actually set alight…
So his family thought it funny they stock us up for the year! 

Charlie Bear loved his In the Night Garden toys…too cute!

Olivia (or Cinderella as she likes to be known…!) loved her new vanity table!

My Disney onesie from my Brother and Sister…
getting out of it is going to be a struggle! 

Tomorrow I have to leave the house…we’ve run out of milk. Funny how the possibility of not being able to have a cup of tea is the only thing that will actually force me out of this pit. Is anyone else stuck in this post Christmas slobbery…?

Until next time,

With Love &

    Just found your blog and love it! I'm sort of gluten free too. 🙂 I am definitely stuck in the slobbery. Don't feel bad!

      Thank you so much! It's going to take some shifting to get out of this one…! x

      Thank you hunny! Oh my, what is this Housewife Challenge…I must find it! I know what you mean…I do want to return to normal, although I always hate the initial 'bare look' the house has once everything is packed away! x
