Why does Christmas never go smoothly??? sorry this is sooo long!!!
Merry Christmas everybody!!!!! I hope that u all had a fabby time....and that u all ate and drank loads...hehehe....And i mainly hope that Christmas all went smoothly for you!!!!....my christmas day started at 545am when i couldn't sleep, so i got up and had a shower and was secretly hoping that i would wake the kids so we could go downstairs 2 see if santa had been....hehehe....my hubby Derek thinks i am totally mad and gives me a row every year for setting my alarm for 6am so i can wake the kids.....hehehe....hence the reason i sneaked into the shower...lol....anyway my cunning plan worked...pmsl...and when i emerged from the bathroom my son conor was in bed beside his daddy...aww bless....poor little Ellie-pie was still fast asleep in her nice cosy bed....well until i go in her room!!! i really am evil!!!! anyway once the kids were fully awake and i was dressed we headed down 2 see if santa had been ....and boy had he been!!!!! there were parcels everywhere!!!! i think i will be asking santa for an extension next year!!!!...so our morning was fantastic!!!!.....we always go to dereks mum and dads at 10am so off we trotted and again everyone was totally spoiled!!! then we go 2 the cemmetry to visit my dad...not soo nice but i need 2 feel him near me especially at christmas!!!!....and then it was back home for a quick tidy up before my brother bigbadbazabing and bestest friend Kazabing come 2 visit!! (they are a couple, but me and kaz have been friends longer)...hehehe....she blames me for them getting 2gether....oopps in case bazabings reading this i mean she thanx me for getting them 2gether!!! hehehe...then again more pressies and coffee and nibbles...and then my mum, and my dads cousin Marilyn come 2 visit with again more pressies....by now i am needing a 3 storey extension!!!! and its my Ellies bday on the 10th Jan....where i am gonna put anything else!!!!! answers on a postcard please!!!! well the afternoon was a complete success everyone ate , drank and were jolly....kaz and baz left at about 2pm as they were having my mum and Marilyn for dinner so they had 2 get organised....and my mum and marilyn left at about 330pm.....so then there was just the 4 of us!!! bliss....i poured myself a little vodka and lemonade and proceeded to put the tatties on!!!...now none of us like turkey so i was really organised and on xmas eve i made a massive pot of stew in my slow cooker and i made the soup as well so that i only had to make mashed and roated potatoes oh and the pastry on xmas day!!! well i thought i was being clever until i was heating up the soup and thought i had better try it 2 see if it was hot enough...and well it certainly didnt taste how it had on xmas eve!! there was a vinegarry twang!!! yip the leeks in my soup had gone off!!!! i didnt even have a tin of soup in the cupboard!!!! oh well at least the stew was delicious as were the tatties, and pastry...it was when we were halfway through our main meal that i suddenly remembered that i had forgotten 2 take the cheesecake out of the freezer...oopps...oh well a 1 course dinner it was....hehehe....anyway we still managed 2 stuff ourselfs and have a laugh....so me and Derek had settled down 2 watch the telly( the kids were upstairs playing with all there new toys) until about 6.05when there was a crash and a scream!!! Conor had slipped on his bed and burst his lip...oh and yes u guessed it a casualty job!!!! so by 630 after frantacly phoning my Mother in law me and Gloria were sitting up in casualty (i had had 2 many vodkas 2 drive) and glo doesnt drink (thank god).... conor needed 3 stitches on his lip....and boy did he scream...i was sat with tears streaming my face as it was awful 2 see him in soo much pain....getting the anasthetic was bad...but so was getting stitched!!!! But when we were walking out of casulty conor managed 2 get his sense of humour back and said mum...u can call me Mr Fatlip!!! i nearly wet myself laughing!!! we managed 2 get home for about 8.30 where derek and little ellie were awaiting us!!! I was absolutely knackered!!! but hey i can laugh about it now!!! so i truely hope that ur christmas was a little better than mine!!!! luv n hugs Lesley xxxx
