So, Christmas is over again for another year.
But it has been wonderful.
It feels as though I've had three Christmases this year: one here with my boyfriend, another at home with my mum & sister, and then another mini version when my friend came round for mince pies & present swapping! But it was great that everyone was together at some point, even if it was extended by 3 days :)
I got so snap happy I took over 700 photos, clearly I wont be putting all of those up, so here are just a few of the best ones!
(also, say ~Hi!~ to my new 50mm lens, which I am in love with.)
Christmas Dinner time!
Which was, amazingly, a success! No burnt turkey, no soggy veg - if I do say so myself, it was tasty!
Turkey, mash, roast potatoes, honey parsnips, pigs in blankets, carrots, broccoli, stuffing AND onion gravy.
We were so full, there wasn't room for pudding... But there is always room for alcohol... Enough to keep you up until 7am, Boxing Day. And it all started with those horrible little shots of 'liquid cocaine' - Bacardi 151, Jagermeister, & Goldschlager. Not good. Not good at all.
the lesser of two evils (/fugly pictures) - in the other one I have my head wrapped in toilet roll. I'll let you decide what else happened that night. We don't remember.
We eventually woke up, mid-day, Boxing Day & headed over to my boyfriends mums for the best steak you've ever eaten. And a lot of rolling around in food comas.
And finally, we headed to my home, for present opening (and more food nibbling)
Speaking of photos - I now have my own book, with my name on it & everything.
How cool is that? I've never printed any of my pictures of Spain, so to have them all together in a book is really special.
Anyhoo, I won't bore you with any more :) - but it has been wonderful, and I feel extremely lucky for everything that has happened these past few days.
I hope you had an amazing, amazing time!
Next, New Years Eve!
