So, it’s Boxing Day. Christmas flies far too fast doesn’t it? There’s so much preparation and then it just arrives and leaves!
Christmas Eve was good. I work in a store, and every Boxing Day the sale starts, which means Christmas Eve is spent preparing the shop for the sale. We close early, turn up the tunes and then it’s all hands on deck getting the shop re arranged and marking everything to the correct prices. Yes, it’s a daunting prospect but by the time we close, we’re all ready and raring to get it finished. This year we were done half an hour earlier than we’d expected!
So after work, Gary and I went and got our traditional Christmas Eve McDonalds. There’s nothing like a Big Mac after a day of sale prepping! We went to my Mum’s house where my Sister, her kids and my Grandad had all arrived. We spent a while there and then went home. By the time we got home and chilled out a bit, we were exhausted. We were asleep by half past 10!
But that didn’t matter because I was awake around 7am Christmas morning, excited and wanting to open presents 😀 I know, I’m 26 and should know better, but every Christmas (and birthday!) I can’t help but wake up at stupid O’clock!
So we went downstairs, sat under the tree and exchanged gifts. Gary got me a Jill E camera bag, Beyonce’s album, two Singstar games and the 10 year reunion blu-ray of Can’t Hardly Wait.
I made croissants and then we got ready to go out. We went to Gary’s parent’s house first to exchange gifts, and then to my parent’s. I had two helpings of Christmas dinner! I can’t get enough of it 🙂
By the end of the day we were all tired and full and happy! I love Christmas and this was a cracker! 😀
