I’ve had so much going on at Christmas this year and everything was fantastic! Christmas was, as always, amazing! I am so grateful for everything that I received and it was so lovely to spend time with my family.
We woke up Christmas morning and opened presents and had breakfast. Then we went to the pub to meet up with my cousins before dinner. After dinner we had more presents and then just watched some Christmas TV and went to bed. Boxing day I was up early as I had to work. But after work it was straight into round 2 as I traveled with my sister to our Uncle’s house to see my Dad’s side of the family. We had another massive dinner, followed by a quick Christmas quiz, another set of presents and some games and a movie. My eldest cousin also announced that she’s pregnant! So the whole family is now so excited about that.
So on the 28th it was the wedding! I was so unbelievably excited for this day. My sister and I got ready in the morning and then drove to the ceremony which took place at The Pier in Harwich. It was a lovely venue, perfect for the small wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and I felt extremely emotional, which I was surprised at because I didn’t think that I was a cry-at-weddings person. But apparently I am! It was just so wonderful to watch my Dad get married to such a lovely lady, who I had already accepted as family. I did a reading at the ceremony and it was great to be apart of it, properly.
Then it was pictures outside before some more drinks and then on to dinner — My favourite! We had prawn and lobster cocktail to start, steak for main and an assortment of mini desserts! The speeches followed and my sister and I said a few words as a surprise for both of them. Then on to the party! We danced, we drank, we had an amazing night and I was so grateful to have so much loving family around me and I was so proud of my Dad. It was a great day.
We stayed at the hotel and had a fabulous breakfast before going home and preparing for NYE! I was having a few friends round for a party that went without any traumas, which was a relief. It also means that I’m allowed another one for my 18th at the end of January. So we welcomed in the New Year with champagne and watching the neighbour’s fireworks!
I hope it’s going to be a good year.
