Happy Boxing Day! I had a lovely holiday and I kept thinking I would have time to sit down and write the posts that were in my head, and then I didn’t. What I really enjoyed was seeing that all of you still came around to DCIB to check in and chat without me!
Oh my, I haven’t posted since Wednesday! Oh that’s right, on Thursday I did some last minute shopping and then watched Star Trek with the upstairs people. On Friday I ended up doing a last minute job interview for a potential new employee at my office, she was very nice, and that kind of ate up all my time before my parents arrived. They arrived, we got settled, then Mom and I walked the dog while Dad had a little nap. Then started making our festive dinner (my Mom molds meatloaf into a festive shape, this year a star!), and the Upstairs People came down to have Christmas Eve dinner with us, complete with charades, which was delightful.
Christmas Day, Dad was up first for once, and then I was up, and then finally Mom, and we had coffee and chocolate and opened presents for a bit. Took a break to walk the dog, and then went upstairs where the Upstairs People gave us an amazing breakfast. Back down, finished opening presents, and then our festive Christmas naps. Then a very VERY long walk which failed to tire out Albie Dog, back home for a relaxed evening of leftovers, playing Sorry, and then to bed. And then this morning I woke up to find my parents had already packed themselves up and stripped their beds and were ready to go out the door. Holiday Over!!!!
Anyway, it was lovely. I got some nice presents, Albie Dog got a big Kong, my parents liked their weird internet enabled photoframe thing I gave them, the Upstairs People liked the cat toys I got them, so it’s all good! And now Albie Dog and I are sitting on the couch together watching The Great British Baking Show. And enjoying the DELIGHTFUL Vicky and Kat Christmas photo.
