I’m not gonna lie, I don’t find Christmas Day relaxing. Not at least until the evening when I’ve done everything else I need to and I’m sitting in front of the tv, probably in my pyjamas, eating from a tub of sweets gifted to me that day (probably Roses). I usually end up falling asleep during the Christmas episode of Doctor Who.
There’s just so much to do that I don’t seem to have time to just sit about doing nothing enjoying the gifts I’ve been given that day. I don’t even have to worry about cooking dinner or having the whole family round the house, so I can’t even imagine how busy and stressed the people who do must feel.
My normal Christmas Routine goes like this:
- Get up, mega early of course because I’m too excited to sleep
- Open presents once everyone is up
- Eat or be forced to eat a breakfast which is not chocolate
- Be rushed into the shower
- Go to my aunts house to see the family
- Home and tidy up the mess from the present unwrapping
- Sleep in front of the TV
This year is a bit different though, as I’m having Christmas dinner at Scott’s parents house. So, after seeing my family in the morning, it’s home, tidy, wait for his relatives to pop over then go to his mum’s for the evening. No pyjamas and falling asleep in front of Doctor Who tonight!
Hope you’re all having a wonderful Christmas and if you’re hosting that you manage to grab a few minutes to yourself without having to hide in the bathroom! 🙂
