Christmas revisited

Leave a Comment
Hands up who's put on 5 stone and Christmas week has only just began? *raises hand* 

I wrote this post on Christmas last year which I rediscovered the other day and I just had to revisit it with some new favourites.

Sitting comfortably with a cuppa and a fat slice of Christmas cake?...I AM.

These are some of my favourite things about the festive season:

Feeling like Rowan Atkinson in  Love Actually  when wrapping presents - This is my time to shine.

Charades!!..unless you get Free Willy, then that's just awkward.

Looking into the ends of all the Christmas crackers and making sure the best one is by your plate.

Getting to wear a crown at the dinner table.

The Ultimate cheat day - 24 hours where you can eat anything and everything, because calories don't count.

Getting to eat chocolate before breakfast everyday. Hello advent, I like you.

Festive flavored coffees. Even if I have had a tub of Quality Street already this morning, I can't resist a gingerbread is Christmas after all. 

Stag Coffee
Secret Santa - The real test to see if you actually listen to your friends/fellow colleagues.

When its perfectly normal to hang a big sock on your door, that is filled with satsumas and an eyebrow pencil on Christmas morning.

Christmas shopping - The best competitive sport around.

Hot wine... serve this to me in June and that is one very bad trip adviser review, but in December why the devil not? 

Patiently waiting for the pyjama fairy to come with the goods on Christmas eve.

Christmas Jumper Day - The only day of the year where you can wear the ugliest thing in your wardrobe and people think it's GREAT.

Drinking and eating non stop for 3 days straight.

Regretting drinking and eating for 3 days straight when your jeans no longer fit.

Turkey sandwiches, turkey dinner, turkey curry, turkey soup - No wonder we only have this bird once a year.

A month long hangover. Festive season = Hair of the dog x 31.

Gingerbread EVERYTHING. Even for breakfast? The answer will always be a yes.

 The Collective Gingerbread Yogurt

Putting a scarf on your cat because you don't want them to miss out on the festivities... 

So I must get my elasticated jeans at the ready and prepare for some over eating, under sleeping and many renditions of the entire Michael Buble Christmas album.

I totally get where Buddy the Elf was coming from here, I am also this excited.

Have a lovely Christmas!
