Catching up with Christmas

Right, I'm sitting on the floor, typing on my laptop which has suddenly decided it can do internet after all (phew!) and watching Kimora, Life in the Fab Lane.  It's on all day.  I like that.  It's escapism at it's best!

Christmas Day was fabulous.  We were at J's mum and dad's and it was lovely.  Very quiet, just them, us, and the two boys (after we picked T-boy up)  AC was very impressed with his helicopter from J and I, and it hasn't been out of his sight since.  He's taken it to his fathers today.

We came back here on Boxing Day, (or Christmas Sunday, depending on your view of these things!) and had a quiet afternoon, J, AC and I, watching a couple of films, and making lego models and so on.

Yesterday we went to Hannah and Alan's for the Big Family Get Together.  It was brilliant.  We are so great at being together LOL!  We chilled, we ate too much, we swapped presents, we chatted, we ran the Baja, we flew heli's, we just had a great time being together.

Today, AC went to his father's at 9am, and will be home 1230 tomorrow.  We're going to the pictures to see Gulliver's Travels in 3D, just he and I.  It's going to be nice to have some just us time.  We'll probably get a hot chocolate and cake afterwards, and chat, and just connect again after a deeply hard time in the week before Christmas.  Emotionally the boy was tired, I was tired, and we both just needed that quiet time together.  But we had T-boy, who does *not* do quiet lol!

ah well.

I have work to do........
