I finished work on the 23rd and was very ready for some time off (okay, apart from the time off I had with Fleur and Beartooth...). My parents arrived at lunchtime on Christmas Eve - we had them and my brother staying in our little two-bedroom cottage, so it was a bit of a squeeze but a perfect, family shaped, happy squeeze (well, not sure my brother would agree as he had to sleep on an air bed in the lounge). The next couple of days were bliss - drinking prosecco, playing board games (Linkee and Five Second Rule are particular favourites!), eating party food and watching rubbish TV. I just love any time spent with my family and I'm always sad when they leave.
I've had a bit of a Christmas cold so I had to miss out on a few dog walks but we went on a really lovely walk on Boxing Day and spotted lots of Christmass-y houses. Lymington is so pretty. (That first picture is Henry dog worrying he was going to get left behind!)
I did receive some lovely presents from other people too - a new bag for the gym, some Adidas NMDs I had had my eye on for ages, some new perfume and lots of other wonderful bits. Sarah made me a jumper and a make-up bag and I'm totally in love with them both (can you imagine being that talented?)
