Countdown Clock 6 DAYS TO GO
A day in the life of…
Normally, I am watching Nightmare Before Christmas going into Christmas Day. Then I normally go to bed to wake up not that long afterwards. I’m greeted with a glass of Prosecco because what’s Christmas without some bubbles in the morning. We have Christmas Breakfast and then the gift opening happens (To be honest, I don’t know the order really😂😂). Then it’s off to help clear up drink some more, but we move onto WINE!!! 🍷 (We like our alcohol on Christmas Day!) I help mum cook for a bit and then my brother and I will watch films, one year we watched the Directors cut of all three Lord of the Rings films (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). We eat and drink, even more, then it goes on to the games… which is the most fun of the evening. Normally, because we are all pretty tipsy and so the drunk hilarity begins! Many funny memories have happened during this festive day!
Normally we go well into the night and normally if people are still hungry they go for more food or a Christmas sandwich (which let’s not lie is so damn good!). By the time I’m going to bed I’m ready to pass out from all the festivities, with the dread of tomorrow being a long day of cleaning up from the mess of Christmas! 😂😂
This day is always the same for me 😂😂 It usually starts with a countdown – yeah that’s not just for NYE. After first light, we’ve got Church! A nice morning service reminding me of the reason for the season. Even when I was in Singapore, I went to a service. As I child, I couldn’t open any presents until I got back home…so unfair as by then, I was bombarded with pictures of presents my friends got! 😒
I get about 20mins MAX to be all giddy before heading off to the kitchen to finish dinner prep and spread the table. I go back and forth so much, I probably wear out my fluffy socks but then my feet get rested for dinnnner! Pretty straightforward, we eat, crack terrible jokes (via crackers) but have a good laugh. I missed that last year as I was out of the country.
Finally, it’s dessert and games. I become the wallflower at this point as I am not in any condition to be a functional human.
That’s it…our last #MT before the big day so we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
