Celebrating But With A Bit Of Sadness

 There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas; there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas. - Robert Staughton Lynd
Christmas Day 🎄
Welcome to our Christmas Day 🤶
It was going to be the first Christmas we could have a lie-in until 9am...
However, we had a knock on the door.
Our late neighbour's son came round with the wooden dragon of his dads for me for Christmas and £20 for my younger son for looking after his late dad.
Hubby said thank you and wished him a Happy Christmas. 
Time for Breakfast with Brew.
Time to dig out the sequins!
All the presents were took down and put in piles.
All the kids wake up and now to open the presents!
Younger son's presents.↑↑↑
Hubby's presents.↑↑↑
My older son took his presents upstairs before I could take a photo of his present :(
Now for a nice cup of coffee...
Now to go and visit my mum and dad.
It was so busy with people visiting.
There was a huge black cloud coming over.
I spoke to my parents, and then 20 minutes later the heavens opened.
Back to Sexy Beast we went. 
Back home.
With turkey in the oven.
I finished the Nutcracker Christmas cake.
Christmas Dinner is ready.
We gave a toast to those who sadly can't be with us to enjoy today.
ie: My dad :'(
Hubby's dad :'(
My neighbour :(
Looked for something to watch....
We found it....
Now for some brew....
Now for some Heardles...
Heardle 60s

 Hubby and I still are not in the Christmas Mood.

I had a few glasses of Mulled wine...
I didn't have a late night after that!
