Im going to go around complaining like i always do. I wish more people would be like tony from hollyoaks. Christmas is soooo overrated.
Will be playing board games with bf's family, making marzipan figures, then we'll decorate the tree, and stash presents under it. Then we eat a huge meal (duck/pork with caramelised potatoes, red cabbge and lots of other yummy stuff) followed by ris a la mande (whoever finds an almond in it wins a prize). Then the candles on the christmas tree are lit, and we dance around it singing christmas songs (post food exercise!) before sitting down and opening presents, with the kids fetching them and delivering them to the family members (never mind the 'kids' are 19, 20 and 24!) to open. Then drinking wine etc and some more singing before bed sometime in the early morning, and then getting up at middayish for a big family lunch with 10 courses or so that lasts until evening.
Oh, yes, this isn't in the UK! Scandinavia we celebrate on the 24th.
WELL....where do i start?
i could have been having a fantastic christmas eve let alone a hell of a good xmas itself!
my parents do shares and they were going to put money on 'Bolton' shares, but decided not to and guess what, if we did, we would have had £8 million in the kitty today. Life sucks.
I'm going to for a drive to get my gran and then probably going to spend the rest of the day listening to her talk about the good old days :P
