My Christmas Day


Hi guys :) I hope you all had an amazing Christmas, spending time with loved ones, partying or whatever it is that you all got up to! I take quite a few photos around Christmas as I like to keep them as memories for each year, and today I thought I would document my day on here for you all so I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to reading other blog posts about this.

Table


I set our dinner table every year because I have a system and I know where everything goes; I'm a bit OCD like that haha.
So yeahh I lay out the table cloth, placemats, cutlery, crackers, candles, condements, napkins and glasses and it is all set up and ready for our meals :)

If anyone has any recommendations for good Christmas crackers, please let me know because these ones are so bad; like the jokes were just rubbish and the little prizes were things like golf tees haha.

  • Breakfast: Bucks Fizz, Scrambled Egg, Blinis, Smoked Salmon.
  • Starter: Pate and Toast.
  • Main: Turkey, Ham, Swede, Brussels (in a creamy garlic sauce), Roast Potatoes, Sausages in Bacon, Stuffing, Parsnips and Carrots (roasted with oil and chilli), Gravy.
  • Dessert: Mini Christmas Pudding with Custard.
  • Cake Left: My Dad bought this from a friend; traditional Christmas Cake.
  • Cake Right: My Nan makes a cake every year and so this is the one that she made.

Other


Of course on Christmas Day you have to get the Quality Street out! My favourites are the red ones (Strawberry), but I don't really have a lot of these anyway because I am not a great lover of chocolate; it's just a Christmas tradition :)
I also took some selfies throughout the day, and this is the nicest one of me and my brother Luke.
Throughout the day we also listened to music, played games such as Trivial Pursuit/Ludo etc, and had a laugh.

So, that was my day, hope you all enjoyed your's as much as I did :) Looking forward to New Year's now!
