On the first day of Christmas....

.... I'd like to wish you all A Merry Christmas! 

Plans changed here a little time wise and food wise. I've realised this year that when you get up at 5am with children there is no problem at all fitting a big breakfast, lunch and tea into a day. When FC is no more and children rise at a decent hour it's a little harder. Breakfast was late which meant pre-dinner canapes turned into lunch and lunch turned into an evening meal. But the whole day has been really relaxing and we've done everything at a leisurely pace which has been lovely.

The games last night were fun although we ran out of time and energy for the talent show so that was done today. In fact, we've not long finished. Mark was the winner. He did impressions of us all which were absolutely spot on and hilarious. 

I will post some pictures over the next couple of days and reply to all your lovely comments tomorrow. 

Hope you've all had a lovely day whatever you've been doing and whoever you've spent it with.



  1. Merry Christmas to you, too, Suzanne, and all your family.

    1. Thank you Bless. As enjoyable as it was I always love getting back to normal afterwards, which basically translates as putting my feet up and not moving very much at all for a few days :) xx

  2. I'm quite gutted you didn't win the talent show, you'd put so much thought and prep into it.

    I'm so glad you had a lovely relaxing day. I agree, it is difficult to fit normal eating into CD. Violet still isn't eating a huge amount, but I was glad she ate something!

    Thanks for visiting the newly named blog today, when it's such a busy day xxxxx

    merry Christmas - what's left of it!

    1. I know! The cheeky blighters loved it but I got marked down because it's been done before - told you we are competitive haha. Mark was definitely the rightful winner though, he was hilarious.

      Glad Violet managed to shake off the bug in time to enjoy the Big Day and looking at all that wrapping paper she certainly seemed to enjoy herself :)

      I just have Boxing Day tea to do now for Aunty Edith, Ken, Matthew and Sophie and then it's officially over for us. Can't wait to put my feet up and do nothing very much for a couple of days.

      Looking forward to visiting the newly named Sadie Diaries blog :)

  3. A (very) belated Merry Christmas to you and your family Suzanne. X

    1. Thank you Jules, hope you all had a lovely one :) xx
