My Christmas Day In Pictures

My Christmas Day started at midnight, when I was at work, where I'd been since 10:30pm on Christmas Eve. I worked till 7:30am and then drove the short distance home, loving the fact that our little town was so quiet and still, with not one other car or person in sight! I love that about Christmas Day. I did a few last minute preparations, then got into bed around 8:20am.
I got up around three hours later and once I was ready, the festivities could begin! Dean's family didn't arrive till just after 1pm, so we waited patiently before opening our gifts. We listened to Christmas songs while doing this. Dean made broccoli and Stilton soup which we ate with fresh bread, before later serving up Christmas dinner around 5pm. We served slow-cooked turkey (obviously, I gave this a miss), homemade roast potatoes, honey roasted parsnips and carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts (also gave these a miss!), stuffing and gravy. It was lovely! Everyone was stuffed. We drank Shloer with our meal and waited a while before serving up our desserts; toffee and pecan meringue roulade and tarte au citron - I wasn't overly impressed with the lemon tart, but I love this roulade!

We watched Inside Out, which we'd received as a gift. I spent some time FaceTiming my family in Scotland and it was lovely to see them all. Dean's family left a little while after the film finished. Dean and I watched The Santa Clause and ate too many After Eights before retiring for the night.
We had a lovely day and were all very happy and grateful for our wonderful gifts! I'll be sharing my Christmas gifts with you soon...

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration!
