A very different Christmas this year, we woke up at about 6.30am as I heard Ruben on the landing. He'd seen the special gifts he'd asked Santa for-yes he still believes!- Santa had been kind enough to leave a present for his sisters and brother too. So we took them upstairs to the living room and opened them! A Pokemon cap and a "Danisnotonfire" (YouTubers!) t-shirt just like he'd written and asked for in his letter.
We changed things a bit this year with the present opening as it's always over a bit too quick so we did stocking opening first and Christmas jumpers-much to Bailey's delight lol! Then hubby and I cooked breakfast for everyone before we headed out to walk the dog on the beach:
Heading to the beach in our Christmas jumpers:
Was so wonderful watching the sun rise over the beach, pretty perfect start to Christmas Day and I will long remember it.

And hubby and I:
Back at the cottage we opened presents! Think it was a huge relief for Ruben as he's not used to waiting so long. We had a bit of a lazy lunch but still with Turkey and all the trimmings-just not all of it made from scratch. And have to say it was the best Christmas lunch I've ever eaten!
We started a new tradition too-poundshop secret santa! It was so much fun and is definitely going on my list for every year.
Merry Christmas from all of us xxxxxx
