I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it, of course), ours was quite simple and quiet, a time to just spend time as a family and take a break from everything and for me that included a much needed break from blogging (the 12 Days Of Christmas Blogging Challenge really burnt me out), I really couldn't justify blogging on Christmas Day or St. Stephen's Day, it just wouldn't seem right to me. For me Christmas was a time to take a breather, reflect on what's important and spend lots of time with my boys - and that's exactly what I did.
After all the fun of playing with toys we got ready and went to visit my grandparents house - a Christmas tradition for us. All of our relatives were there and it was great to chat, exchange gifts and enjoy some wine, I must say I was slightly 'happy' heading to my parents house for dinner, but sure it was Christmas after all! Dinner at my parents house was so delicious, if I had it now I'd eat it all again. Christmas dinner has to be the best dinner of the year for sure but I surprised myself by not being over-indulgent with the treats like I have in other years. I've only had a few Cadbury's Roses and biscuits - very strange for me! After spending the rest of the day with my parents and brother it was time to head home and put myself and Tyler Lee to bed, we were exhausted - Jacek stayed up watching films, I wish I had had the energy to watch the Christmas Day soaps, I missed them this year again...
St. Stephens Day was another very quiet one for us. After a lazy morning of watching films and playing with Tyler Lee's toys we went to my parents house for dinner again. We tried to get some family photos but Tyler Lee was having none of it, we had to settle for snaps of Jacek and I instead. When we got home I did some online shopping (I couldn't resist the LUSH sale!) and finally got to watch some of the soaps and see all the drama - seriously, can no one have a nice Christmas in soapland?!
As you can see our Christmas 2014 was a rather quiet but family orientated one. Hopefully next Christmas I won't be so tired and will be able to enjoy Christmas Day in full without going to bed early! I wish we could have had more family days like this during Christmas time but Jacek went back to work today - the joys of working in retail!
I hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas and that you'll have an even happier New Year!
