Peace and quiet

Posted on 27th December 2015 in Chattin'

Hello there!!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and that Santa was good to you and your family!!

Our Christmas was lovely and quiet. I was awake stupid early (like 4:45 am early), and patiently waited for the other two to wake up so we could get the Christmas gifts opened. LOL! I am worse than a kid on Christmas Day. I had to wait until after 8 before the humans were moving. Ugh. In that time, I had the turkey and the ham in the oven, some of the veggies were pre-cooked and some of the laundry was done. I had also consumed two pots of coffee and I was WIRED for sound. 😛

I got some lovely goodies this year. My daughter spoiled me and bought me something I have been lusting after every time I walk into Sephora but can never justify spending the money on myself.


I gave her shit for spending that money on me but she stuck her tongue out and told me to suck it. LOL! I am thrilled  with my special gift.

This year my husband did something different and actually filled a stocking for me. I always fill one for them but this year there was actually one for me that I didn’t fill myself. (for me the stocking is the best gift of all. Little surprises are the best.) He went out and bought  a huge stocking and stuffed all my gifts in the sock. It was so much fun!! Some of the goodies inside were:


Red flannel onesie (because I live in my jammies. There were also a pair of slippers)


Wrinkle cream ( I have been teasing him about this ever since I opened it.)


Frangelico for my coffee. Also lovely over ice. 😀


A box with four Calvin Klein perfumes. I love these perfumes but again, would never buy them for myself.


A new Pandora charm for my bracelet. I collect Santas too so I really tickled he paid attention. LOL!!

We had the goodies opened and breakfast was on its way to be consumed shortly thereafter, and hdd the rest of the day to chill out, relax in our pajamas and slurp on coffee, Baileys and Frangelico. Julie’s boyfriend came, in his pj’s, to spend the day with us and he fit right in like a dirty shirt. We feasted on too much food and noshed on a container of lovely home made treats that his mom had sent over. (the egg nog cookies were my favorite and in close second was boterkoek which is a delicious Dutch butter cake.)

All in all it was lovely and quiet. So relaxing. Just us four and two bloated and farting animals. It was perfect.

Today I actually slept in until 8am and then started tearing down the Christmas clutter. I got one Christmas tree stripped of all its decorations. I will box it all up tomorrow. The upstairs tree I will do as well. I am looking forward to getting rid of all the clutter and having a clean house again.

It’s back to work for me tomorrow night. I am working on New Year’s Eve as usual, so I will have to put up with the drunks. Yay me.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!! I will see you again in 2016!
