Christmas this year was so lovely! Jamie and I made mince pies, a gingerbread house, ate our body weight in food and overall I had the best time with family and friends and truly enjoyed a day which I normally despise.
Christmas is always a strange time of the year for me and my family as two years ago my dad had a double kidney transplant. He had spent years on dialysis then on christmas eve 2013 the phone rang. My dad had a few hours to race up to London with the hope that the donor was a match. It was. My dad spent a long time recovering but he gained a life. It was the best present we could ever wish for.
Now at this festive time of year we treasure the time we have with each other and see Christmas as a time of reflection. My dad tends to go overboard with presents and food but we all know what Christmas means to us as a family.
To lift the mood I thought I would share some of my favourite presents that I received this year. As previously mentioned my family and Jamie were extremely generous to myself and each other.
I didn’t want to bore or brag by putting up pictures of every single gift I received hence why I picked out a mix of a few. I would love to know how everyone else spent their holidays so please leave a comment below!
I will be incorporating some of my presents in future blog posts so watch this space!
I’m so grateful for everything and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year!
