Christmas Snapshots & Haul

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

It seems like ages ago that it was Christmas day but it was only a few days ago really! Time always just gets extremely warped while on Holiday. 
Christmas started earlier than usual this year with everybody being up about 9ish- me once again being the last awake! After some breakfast we headed through and opened all our presents up. The highlight for me while opening presents wasn't any particular present but my Granda playing with a plush and puppet that I had got from Darren.

Our Christmas meal we had our usual amount of courses, technically 6 in total spread over the whole day. We started with Soup & Croissants about 1:30, then had Camembert,  Sorbet followed up with the main show- Turkey with all the trimmings! In the evening came pudding and later on crackers with cheese. But with being so stuffed I ended up just having a pancake and a few crackers with butter. 

In the evening, we also watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special which was pretty amazing! But I'm still not sure if I am actually happy with the ending of the episode or not, kind of on the fence with it. And also watched the Mrs Brown's Boys and Michael Mcintyre's Christmas Special, both of which did have me laughing!

This year I had quite an array of presents from arty things to CDs/DVDs. I received so many CD's that I haven't had a chance to listen to each and every one of them yet but I need to get it popped onto my iPod to listen on the go. 
I also got a few Yankee Candles from my sister and also a candle holder from both her and my parents. I haven't got them in my room to use yet as they are both made of glass and I feel like I would just break them easily. 
Majority of my presents overall this year also carried on the whole woodland/fox loving that I had going on last year with presents ranging from a box to 3D wax and a neck card holder strap. 
My creative bits and bobs this year consisted of the Grey Graphik Line Painter Pens Pack (the coloured pack above I bought from Hobbycraft but needed to include), a new fox pencil case and a new Camera lens! I also got a carry case for the lens, a lens cap and a new memory card this year too so I'm looking to go and have a bit of a photography adventure some time soon!

  2. I got Ed Sheeran's "x" album too! Technically I picked it out but I had to wait to listen to it on Christmas day. It was very worth it! Ahh, he's voice speaks volumes to me! Everybody got their share of Yankee Candle items this year it seems like! I saw that picture and went, "ooh, strawberry buttercream!" Lol Oh and the table setting looks lovely and very simple!
