Christmas Day – Photos

After a terrible Christmas Eve night due to some very selfish people letting off display sized fireworks right in front of our house at midnight when I was just drifting off, I finally managed to get some sleep around 3am before the kids woke us at 6am.
The kids went to sleep around 2am after being woken by the fireworks and wanting to open their stockings there and then!
A lot of people on the street were very angry with the firework people and a fight soon broke out. The police were called who turned up with a van and 3 police cars, after the fight had finished! They helped the firework people put out the remnants of the fireworks after they landed in the bushes at the front of the house and were smoking away.
The firework people got let off even though they were totally breaking the law by letting off fireworks at that time of night.

The kids, of course, were totally fine with the lack of sleep but Ant and I were fighting sleep the whole day! Every time I felt myself drifting off I had to get up and do something to wake myself up!
We had dinner around 5 instead of our traditional midday Christmas dinner and I have to say I much preferred eating at that time. I didn’t feel rushed and having my new cooker made everything so much easier. It was wonderful cooking with 2 ovens, 5 rings and a warming plate!

It will certainly be a Christmas we won’t forget after all the drama but thankfully, even though we were shattered all day, we had a really lovely, relaxing day with the kids 🙂
