Christmas


Well we started with rain, hail and wind then it was Christmas morning. Merry Christmas to all those I have missed. We had a full day planned, first the boys opened there presents from Santa and then it was wrap up warm and we went for our annual walk on the beach, also takes care of Sam for the day. We were lucky as the rain held off and we all enjoyed the walk. 
Opening presents between phones calls to all we could get hold of and to those we missed, we did not forget you and I hope you enjoyed your day. Presents, some very useful, some will be going back as they too big, too small or we have one already. Well half the fun is the sales on Boxing Day and returns are all part of the fun of the festive season. 
Lunch was the traditional fare, turkey, gammon, beef and all the trimmings, see attached photo of the Xmas specials broad. Too much to eat, in actual fact much too much. We finished it off with Christmas pudding and cream and chocolate rolls.
Robert, has come of age, well thought out presents surprising us all with his thought and generosity, Michael went for the fun and spirit of Christmas while Susan and I went more traditional, socks, denims, smelly soaps and shirts. I did buy Susan a new electronic toothbrush. You will be am amazed at what these modern day teeth cleaning appliances can do. No let's not go into that, this is an afternoon blog and children could be reading. 
One little cloud that hung over the festive celebrations was that Susan had lost Roberts present. Well that did have us looking all over the house, we did find another present that we forgot all about and some me will be happy this Christmas. Anyway back to Roberts presents, it turns out Susan had asked Michael to wrap some presents and he faced with a pile of wrapping forgot to put names on and when we opened the presents that had no names on, Robert opened his lost Christmas jeans and bulldog perfume. Happy days.
That and with the very Christmas 'Christmas Tales of New York' gently bringing cheer in the background, I took myself off to bed, exhausted, fulfilled and content.
