24th December -Day before baby Jesus' birthday - kind of...
Yeah, we went to the pub. Me and Buffy donned our drinking hats and went around the corner to the Urmston and had a few beers, chatted to a few friends and then we came home. It was a lovely night!
|Down t pub!|
We gets our asses out of bed and went down to see the delights that awaited us.....
For Buffy - from me she received a packet of smash (instant mashed potato), a real life potato and a new potato masher. Do you see the theme there? She didn't know at the time but her Christmas would dramatically improve later in the day)
For me - Buffy gave me a funny book about running, a model of a spitfire with realistic noises (Cool!) and the best present I thin I have ever received -A lynx deodorant and shower gel set. It sounds rubbish, but Buffy knew that my mum and dad always gave me one of these sets and when I opened it this year it did bring a tear to my eye. Thanks mum and dad. x
For Taz - He got a big bone that should last him a few days - which he ate in about 5 minutes - greedy dog!! haaha
|Yep - Frozen wrapping paper!|
We then went out with Taz for our traditional Christmas day walk. Today was very busy though and it was frustrating me and what I had planned. On our Xmas in Winnipeg we had taken some really nice photos lying in the snow and I wanted to take a UK version lying in the mud - at least that's what Buffy thought.... We finally found a lovely little path with trees on both sides and no one about. I asked Buffy to lie down and then joined her with the camera on a timer. I then got the engagement ring out of my pocket and asked Buffy to marry me. Slightly confused, she looked at me for a second before saying 'Yes' and smiling. It went pretty well I think!!
|She says yeah.|
26 December - Candy cane day apparently!
Chris was home with the kids on the 26th - so it was all Pink wigs and silly presents all around as Chris opened all the silly things the kids had bought him. Chris also gave me a huge United flag which will adorn the wall in my man cave when we arrive in Winnipeg. Buffy also loved her Walking dead T-shirt
Its now 2nd Jan (Cream Puff day) and chippy night - Time for a couple of beers and a mellow weekend. I think we deserve it!!
Have a lovely drinking straw day tomorrow!!
Oh yeah, Buffy was also happy cos it snowed - for about an hour!! But she loved it!!
