Our tree and presents, earlier this evening
So, originally Matthew and I were heading up to my parents this evening, to spend Christmas in deepest darkest loveliest Forres.
However, some very wintry weather ensued, and the conclusion reached through many phone calls, lots of doublechecks, and endless refreshing of websites was that we would not fly north this evening, but rather stay here in London. We decided this last night.
Cue us conjuring Christmas in a day. Luckily I had stocked up, so a quick run to (the hellishly busy) Asda helped us top up the supplies. Also luckily, Matthew and I had been working on Fakemas presents for ages (we were going to have a Fakemas celebration next week) so we had some gifts already. And we both grabbed extra things last night and today.
So now we are getting ready for our first Christmas together, and it really is just the two of us. We have a tree, and champagne, and gifts, and a cosy house. It’s not bad at all by all accounts. As sad as I will be to miss out on a family Christmas (Sian, Peter and I have Christmassed together for 24 or 22 years each!), I am quite looking forward to a chilled and happy day with my boy.
He’s even said I can watch Dr Who on the big TV. 😀
So as we prepare to enjoy our unexpected Christmas, I just wanted to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas. May your day be blessed and relaxed and fun, and full of all the beauty and joy you deserve. I look forward to hearing all about your celebrations in the days to come.
But for now, I am off to celebrate Christmas, starting in about five minutes with a bottle of champagne and some board games with my boy. Glorious times. 🙂
Big love and warmest wishes to you all! Merry Christmas!
