Photo Diary: Christmas Festivities...

Its Christmas time folks. I wait 364 days a year for this day and it's finally here. We started off with a bang for my sister's 19th birthday on 23rd by having lunch out in a nearby luxury hotel. To begin, we popped the Champers (with me, left with a non-alcoholic cocktail) and gazed indecisively at the menu. 

We had our starters and moved swiftly onto the mains; where we had a classic Christmas turkey with all the trimmings. It was delicious to say the least.

After scoffing down every last inch (and then loosening a few extra button holes), it was time for dessert. Which in my opinion, is the best part of every meal. Of course, we had to complete the festive theme and finish to with a good ol' Christmas pud, didn't we?

After even more button-popping and loosening of jeans; we relaxed, laughed and chuckled the night away while sipping on hot choccie and nibbling at mince pies.

Before we could blink it was Christmas morning. I dashed downstairs like my five-year-old-self only to find Santa had been very kind this year. You all saw my Christmas list here. It was no surprise that my Barbour jacket had arrived beneath the tree (it has been in my house since November!) but there were also a few goodies that I'll share in a later post.

For now, let's just take a moment to appreciate the art of a Barbour jacket. For thou is lost for words.

After taking a long pre-Christmas dinner walk around the local park, our tummies were soon relishing for food.

With the table presented with wine, holly-printed serviettes and crackers (which contained chocolate inside, instead of the usual party hat and useless, gimmicky toy). It was finally time for Christmas lunch.

After scoffing ourselves full, we watched the Queen's speech and lazily plonked our bottoms on the couch; ready for hard-core games and movie marathons.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hope you all are having a lovely day, spent with loved ones!
