What a long day it is. We got up at 8:30am and put the coffee machine on, we needed it as we were both knackered from broken sleep. The dogs seemed to sense that something was about to go on, so we started giving them their presents. Needless to say, they were very excited. Both taking the gifts and tearing off the paper to reveal the prize inside. One of my friends did not believe that this happened, so I recorded them doing it and sent it to her. She was very surprised. Lilu each year used get excited on Christmas Day and would open the gifts in the same way. We had taught her to do and, so she ended up teaching Harper from when she was a pup, and last year Harper taught Mazikeen. This year Mazikeen watched Harper for a few seconds and then get stuck in herself. She is a clever wee thing and as such does not need to be shown twice.
Dinner was a triumph, even if I say so myself, and there were two best parts, the roast potatoes and of course my trifle, which always will be the top of my list every time, but I do love trifle.
I got lots of lovely things and was spoiled as always, and so I now have lots more books to read in the new year, including books on Michelle Obama, Oliver Reed, Stephen Hawking, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, and many many more. I also got some kitchen gadgets, BBQ sets, beard items etc.
Of course, we have eaten too much and are trying to drink, but struggling to fit anything in, but we will try, or vomit trying ha ha.
I hope you all had a good day.
