Happy new year! We’re already a week in, time is flying past. I had the foresight to take the first week of the year off, so I’ve been enjoying all the moaning on Twitter, etc of people struggling to get back into their routines, whilst I lounge in bed, eating leftover selection boxes and mainlining Netflix (it helps that I have a horrible cold). Here are some of my festive highlights:
Not quite a white Christmas day, but we did have some snow. It was pretty icy cold and we got through a lot of wood on the old stove.
Turkey and ham pie made with the leftovers from Christmas dinner – delicious.
Christmas wrapping is something I always enjoy, especially when it’s with recipient-appropriate tags (a gift for my friend who owns post offices).
A very special gift from Lee which I am looking forwards to using.
Even Max had plenty of gifts to open, including this monkey, one of his favourites.
He didn’t get to even put his noggin on this awesome cushion though.
Found these nativity ducks in America!
Boxing Day snacking.
Then putting all the decorations away until next time.
And spending New Year indoors on the sofa, under a blanket, scoffing chipolatas and watching shit telly. New year’s day dinner was the traditional steak pie, neeps, tatties and Irn Bru. Braw.
Today, my new year’s gift to myself arrived…
I haven’t had a new laptop in about 7 years and my little netbook died last year, so it was time to let this guy into my life. Yay!
