Our Christmas was cosy and homely and sweet and lovely. A calm day full of good food, sweet memories, brilliant winter sunshine, far too many presents and a pile of kitty snuggles. From first awaking (late) to dropping off after a few cocktails, it was wall to wall festive fun. A truly special Christmas. Here’s a few glimpses of our day.
Poor Matthew has not been well for a while, so a big Christmas lie-in was definitely required. Leela-paws came to join us for a snuggle – she loves solo time!
Fry and Poppet were very interested in the happenings occurring in the kitchen!
Requisite Christmas selfie – as we don’t spend the season with our families we like to send a few goofy pics to make them smile.
We went for a walk to the QE2 park before dinner – such a lovely way to work up an appetite. Olympic level Christmas fun!
Loved sharing our first married Christmas together.
All ready for Christmas dinner a deux!
I concocted this cocktail, which I would compel you to try….
Add a healthy amount of ice to a shaker.
Add 1/4 cup gin (I used Tanqueray 10), 2 tbsp Chambord and 1/2 tsp vanilla.
Shake in a way that I would describe as vigorous, and the cats would describe as too darn loud.
Pour into a glass and top with chilled tonic water.
After watching a lot of very silly stuff (Community, Modern Family, Community, The Office) we had a late night snack (M: trifle. C: leftover sandwich for the win, my friends!) and then headed up to bed. Poppet decided our bed was her bed too. Well, it was Christmas.
How was your day?
