my christmas day 2013

Merry Boxing Day?!
Today has been so lovely and lazy - I'm still not out of my pj's and all I've done is eat copious amounts of food, watch YouTube videos, read blogs and I'm planning to put on the One Direction movie after this. A pretty successful day, I think.
Anyway I thought I'd share with you what I got up to yesterday.
I woke up at 6am when my little sister came jumping into my bedroom & although I only had 4 hours of sleep I was still excited. It took all of five minutes for everyone to unwrap their presents - those five minutes were the best ever though.
Like always, santa was too kind and I'm so happy with everything I was given! I got the canon 600d and I spent all day, snapping away. I'm hoping to do a 'what I got for christmas' post soon if that's something you'd like to see.
Sadly my mum had to work & she left at 6:30am which sucked. I spent an hour or so 'playing' with my presents & then I went back to bed and watched we're the millers on my laptop. It's a pretty funny movie.
We had our christmas dinner today since my dad is an awful cook (he'll deny it) and my mum makes it every year. So yesterday, since she was working, we just had steak and chips which sounds boring but was quite delicious!
After lunch we played the game of life (one of my favourite board games because it reminds me of sims) and we went to my granny's house for a while. When my mum got home from work we all sat round and watched as she unwrapped her presents - side note: that's always awkward isn't it? people watching you as you open your gifts. No? Is that just me? - and then we watched the father ted christmas special because my dad got the box set from my sister!
I ended the night by eating a big tub of ben & jerry's cookie dough ice-cream and fell asleep in the middle of watching midnight in paris.

I really enjoyed christmas this year & I'm loving the break from school and stress.
I am not looking forward to these lazy, pajama days ending Emoji

So, how was your christmas?

  2. Your photos are amazing I'm jealous ! Happy Christmas :D xx

  3. I had a great Christmas and I'm glad you did too :) I hate people watching me when I open my presents too, it just feels like whatever reaction I have will look fake - even if I genuinely love what I get!
