Syd, on Christmas Eve, past bedtime, holding an orange root vegetable aloft like Excalibur, shouting ‘Reindeer, I got a carrot for you!’
Max saying ‘Thank you Father Christmas’, then rushing to whisper ‘Thank you mummy’ in my ear after he opened each of his many stocking gifts.
The teen spent most of the day wearing a Miranda mask. Of all the things she received, that was the cheapest, yet the most enjoyed. Watching her dance with Syd to the Pogues while wearing it was an entertaining sight indeed.
Moments of hilarity playing pointless- random guesses being right, and lack of general knowledge leading to some funny answers. Who knew Donald Duck once hosted the Oscars?!
The boyfriend creating elaborate facial piercings with bits of Cracker decoration…
Syd likes sprouts. The traitor.
A tree surrounded by gifts. We were all spoilt with lovely, lovely things. The Minion Glasses raised some giggles!
Doctor Who was brilliant as always. I may have cried, but got interrupted twice by a small chap struggling to sleep. I will miss Matt Smith, but am looking forward to seeing what Peter Capaldi brings.
A lovely day of too much chocolate, too many gifts, lots of laughter, a tasty dinner, and lots of cuddles. Pretty much perfect actually.
