Christmas morning arrived early, the boy had been up since 6am and was apparently ‘way too excited to sleep.’ Thankfully, after being told to go back to sleep, he did and we awoke at a respectable 9am. Before any presents could be opened, we brewed the coffee Kim had gifted me during our trip to Edinburgh. Orange spiced coffee. It was simply delicious and perfect for Christmas day. I was handed the biggest pile of presents I’ve ever received as an adult. John and his mum had bought me lots! It’s fair to say that I was spoiled rotten this year . With so, so many amazing presents I intend to fill an entire blog post. You see, I’ve also been spoiled rotten by my pals too. So many lovely things. I’ve caught myself saying, ‘How did you know?’ so many times!
Mid-morning, John’s niece and nephew descended and with them brought chaos and a trail of wrapping paper. Watching two small children open stacks of presents with big grins on their faces totally gave me that Christmas feeling.
After presents, I got to wear my Christmas day dress. I posted this snap on Instagram, along with a picture of my Diana F+ camera. It seems everyone was wearing this little beaut of a Primark dress and I don’t blame you. For £15, it’s so well made and fits like a dream. Did you see Rachel the Hat‘s Christmas dress this week? I have a feeling this will become mine for many years to come.
For the boy’s Christmas present, I bought him the Instant Lab by Impossible Project. This means he will be able to print out his hundreds of street art Instagram pictures onto a Polaroid. Sweet, hey? Naturally, we were both fascinated by this new fandangled piece of technology and deliberating over which pictures to print out took us well up to our lunch.
