Christmas…………loved it……….

By redpanda On December 28th, 2009

As I said before this year I was really enthusiastic about Christmas……………and I was not disappointed……..

There was the usual chaos in the run up hampered by the bad weather which of course did not turn to snow……………was fun and I was very well organised for a change…………all the presents wrapped by 9 on Christmas Eve………..everything delivered and collected Christmas Eve…………big food shop done on the Wednesday…………along with some hand delivery cards……………and the great waterproof sock hunt…………………

The day its self was amazing…………….a nice leisurely start to the morning with the kids opening their ‘Santa’ stuff………a beautiful watch and bracelet from him indoors along with some of my favorite music………..Tim did well as did the kids…………..they had loads of stuff and the lounge still looks like a bomb has gone off in it…………Dinner was good though a little late due to the roast potatoes taking longer than planned……………..all very diet friendly…………….and then to my Mum’s for Boxing Day tea…………again all very diet friendly and loads of it…………

Been out for a Bike Ride on Boxing Day too and fell off again…………..and got wet feet……….but it was a route we had not done before and will do again when it has dried out properly………………total ridden 15.1 miles……………also did a 5 mile walk this morning from Burley down the old railway line to Holmsley and stopped at the Old Station House Tea Rooms for Tea and Dorset Apple cake………………

Have been very good with food and not gone too mad with the snacky stuff…………..I prefer savoury to sweet snacks any way……………Pretzels and Twiglets rock and are not bad calorie wise…………..off to be weighed again tonight………

More random mutterings soon…………..
