Xmas Day, Friday 25 December 2015
For the first time in history I was allowed a sleep in on Xmas day. My sister and her bunch were not able to be with us on Xmas day this year as they would all be somewhere else. That leaves only Dad, his wife, my brother and his girlfriend to celebrate together at Dad’s retirement village.
This year the village restaurant decided to open for a special Xmas buffet so we jumped at the chance to enjoy some great food without having to prepare or bring anything and no mess to clean up afterwards. It was a great idea and hopefully we’ll get to do it again next year, as we enjoyed it so much.
After breakfast we did presents and had a couple of drinks before heading home for the rest of the day.
Once home I opened a couple of extra special presents I received from friends – I think it’s nice to save some presents for later so it’s not all over in one big present opening extravaganza!
As it got dark I remembered to look out for the moon, as it was the first time in 25 years (or something like that) where it would be a full moon on Xmas Day. Next full moon on Xmas Day won’t happen till 2034!
What a lovely Xmas day.
