We spent Christmas at home this year with friends and it has been lovely. The kids are definitely teenagers now as they didn’t wake up until after 9am. Gone are the days of them jumping out of bed at 6am with excitement about presents. I think they were still excited but they also like their sleep.
Ben bought me a skirt with foxes on it. He’s got surprisingly good taste in clothes.
For lunch I made haggis. I usually make a nut roast but the kids don’t like that very much and they do like my haggis. Haggis also contains sage, nutmeg, and allspice which give it a festive flavour.
We also had roast potatoes, parsnips, sweet potato, Brussels sprouts with chickpeas and kale, peas, cranberry sauce, and whisky sauce.
Alison took some nice photos of me and Ben.
I’m wearing my Tess Daly rose pink jumpsuit and Ben is wearing a new jumper he got for Christmas.
After lunch we played Trial by Trolley which is a game based on the trolley problem thought experiment where you have to decide, as the conductor of a train, which track to take and who will die. For instance, do you kill Putin on one track that also has your best friend, or to you kill the scientist who cures cancer on the other track? It was fun.
In the afternoon I went for a run and the others for a walk. Ben thinks I wore too many outfits on one day which is why this post is called the 12 outfits of Christmas but he’s exaggerating. I only wore five outfits. Here’s the fourth: my running dress.
Here’s my fifth outfit which is a matching jumper and short sets from Ben. Perfect for lounging on the sofa while writing a blog post and watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Have the hap-hap-happiest Christmas everyone!
