Yesterday I spend most of the day at my sister’s house as usual on Christmas Eve. She came to pick me and mum up at around 1 pm, then we went to the grave yard to put some candles on some graves. When we got to her house my brother and his family were already there.
We ate at around 2.30 pm. Pretty good ham this year! 🙂 I’m not a big eater on Christmas. But ham, potatoes and white sauce and a few salads are nice.
At 4 pm we watched Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Snow White, Cinderella and the others in the “From all of us” cartoon. It took an hour. Shortly there after Santa (my brother-in-law) came. The kids usually recognize him, so this year he just showed himself in the living room window, then we opened the door and he waved and put a few plastic bags with gifts in the hall. We told the youngest kids Santa was very busy and didn’t have time to come in. They didn’t bother. Alec was probably just happy, because he looked a little scared just seeing Santa at the front door.
I got among other things a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle (van Gogh’s Starry night), books, a DVD, chocolate, a Tangle Teezer (a funny looking hair brush, the Original Blueberry Pop), money, cross word book…
I hope the hair brush is good, because I have pretty messy hair, tangles in it sometimes, especially when it’s wet. Sometimes nothing other than scissors help to remove the tangles.
We got home around 9.30 in the evening. It was very nice to put on the one piece and lay down on the bed, just watching TV. 🙂
Sadly it was a green Christmas… A very thin layer of snow in the morning that quickly melted as it was raining pretty much the whole day.
Today I’ve spend most of the day reading, not doing anything in particular. I’ll watch some TV later this evening and made solve a few cross word puzzles.
