Me on Monday ~ Christmas 2014

Today I’m quietly reflecting, while I watch Moonrise Kingdom catch up with the ironing, on the past few days of family festivities.

On Tuesday….


…..the children decorated the tree.

On Wednesday…...


…..I packed the hampers…..


…..ready to deliver……


…..and whipped up a chocolate tart for the Christmas pudding haters.

On Thursday we….




…..drank (the shandy that defied logic) and were merry with the inlaws.

On Friday…..


…..we did it all over again at home with Mum.

And we had clementines, always clementines, because…..


…..”Nobody likes the tangerines.”

That was ours. How was yours? Waving to Sian for the last time this year.

Ours was very similar. Although we've had the tree up a week longer than normal because Mr Dunnit got in a stitch about weekends left to go.....and there were more than he thought! With us, its satsumas.because 'nobody likes the pips'. Lazy lot!

Sian said...

Ours was excellent! Thank you for asking.

Moonrise Kingdom was recommended to me by a blog reader, Lea, and it has turned into one of my all time favourites. It's about time I watched it again actually.

Have a great week

Croissants for breakfast is our christmas tradition too....and clementines are soooo much better than tangerines!

A box of remarkable, wondrous munchy things!!! Love it! Ours was glorious and spent with family on my side. The Chosen One's parents have passed and his brothers are too far away :/ Lots of food and board games!

Hugs and Happy New Year!

Susanne said...

Looks a lovely Christmas I had a puppy-watching, dog-walking, Christmas clean-up, leftover eating weekend.

Sounds like you have had a lovely Christmas - we are a satsuma household, so much easier to peel, I hate getting in a mess when eating (and crafting) and no pips to spit out either LOL!!

Alison said...
