Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you all had a day as fun as mine!
Christmas for me started off opening presents yesterday evening as I spent today at Cameron’s house and my mum wanted us to all open our presents together still. Christmas Eve finished with Midnight communion at Church with my Mum and Auntie Ann. Then up this morning for some breakfast (chocolate of course), before back up to the Church for the morning service. I’ve never been to Church on Christmas Day before, but it was fantastic. Starting off Christmas Day celebrating the real meaning of Christmas with the loveliest people. It was a great service as always; you know it’s going to be fun when it starts with ‘A long time ago, in a Galilee far, far away’.
After leaving Church, we came back to Cameron’s house to open presents. It’s the first time I’ve ever not been at home for Christmas Day, and it was a massive change of pace to go from 12+ people to only 4. But it was really nice having a quieter house for a change, and I received some lovely and thoughtful presents. The next few hours were spent watching Cameron assemble his new Lego train set, before a huge and delicious Christmas dinner prepared by Cameron’s Mum.
After dinner, there were 4 hours of watching the glee on Cameron’s face as he set the train set up on the dining table and drove it round and round and through obstacles and causing crashes (some deliberate, some definitely not!). A perfect day, I love seeing other people so happy!
I’m about to finish off the day with some quiet reading and contemplation before a well deserved rest. I hope you all had a great time filled with family and fun too!
