Christmas One & Two!

I can't really believe Christmas is over already! 

All that build up and then - zoom - it's gone. But, I enjoyed it while it was here & had a really, really lovely time.

It's normal for my family to have 'two' Christmases; I spent Christmas Day with my boyfriend & his family, then Boxing Day with my Mum, as she came down from Northumberland for a few days! Having a pretty 'spread out' family it makes it difficult to see everybody together, even on that set day, but that's just how it goes! I think it works out nicely anyway!
Christmas Day was full of food overload, but isn't it always? Starting with a Full English Breakfast, followed by me attempting/making Christmas Dinner which turned out to be gigantic, and served at 8.30pm... Oops! Although it did seem to go down pretty well!
Even the animals were in the Christmas spirit, Anni had her scarf on & the smaller critter (Herbert and Skye & Pebbles) had their Christmas beds.
I received some really lovely things, too, for which I am extremely, extremely grateful. I'm still in shock over a lot of them! I hope you don't mind nosing at a couple of things, a lot of people on Twitter said they enjoyed seeing what people got for Christmas, so I'm going to include a few snaps :)
After all the entertaining, visiting & general drinking I needed all of yesterday to recover (a good excuse to get into new pyjamas & pamper yourself if you ask me!) but everything is back to normal now!
Canon 550d and 35mm f. 1:2 lens.

And there you have it! My Christmas in a nutshell :) I truly hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. 

Looking forward to catching up on everyones Christmas posts soon & getting back into the swing of blogging regularly again!
 Hasta pronto!
