We had cheese and crackers and pate and salmon and stuff to start with, then a full turkey dinner with bread sauce, stuffing, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, pigs in blankets, parsnips, carrots. I love Christmas dinner! Then I made lemon cheesecake for dessert.
I got some lovely presents including two bottles of champagne, a Build a Bear kitten, books, a couple of scented candles. Really nice things! I haven't tried the champagne yet, but I did get another bottle for my birthday! It's a total indulgence because I really like champagne but would rarely if ever buy it for myself. I've also never had a Build a Bear - they didn't have any shops round here when I was young, but I've been thinking for years that I should treat myself to one, so when my mum and I went Christmas shopping I asked for one so we went in to build her. It was a lot of fun!
As you can see she's dressed as Rey from Star Wars. She smells of bubblegum! I liked her whiskers and the colour of her
The table all set. The stockings have little gifts in them, I did them this year although my mum and I take it in turns. I love my wine glasses, they're for "best" so I don't use them often
These are my best plates, too. They were wedding presents
One bottle from my mum and one from Lee
And these are all the books I got! Lee bought me the top one, my friend Laura bought me the middle two, and my friend Sarah bought me the bottom one, which I've already read :)
