If you read my last post, I was struggling. I was utterly convinced that Christmas and everything associated with it would be terrible.
I was proved wrong.
Dave and I rushed round like headless chickens wrapping Christmas presents, packing our things to stay at my parents and making sure we had everything we would or might need for Walter.
Dave drove us to his parents on Christmas Eve morning. The nearer we got there, the more anxious I felt.
It turns out my nieces think Auntie Gemma is awesome. The day was spent playing duplo and playmobile and decorating a gingerbread house with my 3 year old niece and chasing after my one year old niece who has mastered the art of walking. I don’t really know my nieces. Dave and I haven’t had the chance to spend much time with them as they live hundreds of miles away. It was nice spending time with them.
Christmas Day was spent with my family. It was a really relaxing day. Dave completely surprised me by giving me an Xbox One!
Dave and I managed to sort out loads in our new house over the Christmas break. It feels so much more homely. We spent time with some friends and went on a big dog walk with my friends from the gym.
Tomorrow Dave is back at work. It has been lovely having him home. We have lots of things planned for the house and the future.
So here’s to 2017. Hope it’s a good one for all of you.
