Sunday - Clear and sunny
Merry Christmas! A good day.
We went to bed really late last night so got up late this morning. That wasn’t a bad thing really. I got up around 10:30 and started working on brunch. I ended up making a couple of things, mini quiches in wonton wrappers and bacon and egg cups. They were both pretty darn good, just a bit fiddly.
After we ate our brunch, we opened presents. I gave F another bag of stuff for emergencies for the car. I gave him stuff like wool toques and work gloves, bandages, antiseptic wipes, regular wipes, flashlights and lights with a magnet on them…things that come in handy when you need them. There was even a lap blanket. His “big” present was a couple of t-shirts and a backpack. He often uses a really ratty one when we go away and it makes me want to throw it out. I got a shirt and a pair of pants from my sister, and a handbag from F. I asked for it, so he got me the one I wanted. Yay for that.
We had an okay afternoon. F kept putting off visiting his mother, so finally, I had a shower and then asked that we go to a drugstore. We went and then decided to go to Yamaya too. At Yamaya we bought a bunch of food that we wanted…don’t know when we’re going to eat it though!
F went off to visit his mother finally and I got a head start on dinner. I started preparing things and setting the table, etc. We had a little buffet going. There was salad, plus crackers, cheese, cold meat and some cans of nibbles too. We watched a couple of movies, had a bit of drink and some food. It was nice really.
We watched Despicable Me 2 and then the live action Cinderella, which was okay really. I wanted to watch happy things on Christmas Day.
F snoozed on the couch for a while and I got him up to take his bath. A little while later my sister said she was okay to do a video chat, so we did that too. It was fun seeing her and my niece and nephew too.
It is now very late, although honestly, earlier than yesterday when I went to bed, so I’m going to end this and get to bed. It is over for another year. I’m sad really, but it’s okay. I have to get back to “real life” soon anyway.
Come back later and find out how my Boxing Day goes. Until tomorrow….
