As I quickly touched upon in my last post, Christmas was truly wonderful but it didn't last nearly long enough.
Previous years have just felt like pretty regular days. Both days this year I was surrounded by family. Everyone headed up to my Nan's for a Christmas dinner and then a cold buffet on Boxing day.
Everyone had lots of laughs, caught up with each other, watched films and even cracked out the Trivial Pursuit. Christmas isn't the same without it. My team won, obviously!
I also got pleasantly surprised with gifts that I wasn't expecting.
I got my boots that I showed you earlier in the month from my Daddy. I also received beautiful glass tea light holders, a Homebase gift card (perfect for helping me decorate my room), money, chocolates, a charm bracelet, A Street Cat Named Bob, a set of nail polishes, socks, a Lush massage bar, a lovely oversized cardi and a couple of Starbucks mugs from the rest of my family.
Not an awful lot in comparison to some people but I couldn't be happier. I really wasn't expecting anything. What I was most looking forward to Christmas for was the family time. I might have been ill but it was just brilliant. The excitement tired me out though, hence opting for easy makeup for Boxing Day but something that still left an impact.
