Home for the Holidays

Well another Christmas has been and gone. I hope you all had a fabulous few days with your nearest and dearest…

And enjoyed what has to be the best meal of the year…

I think my parents excelled themselves this year with a constant flow of delicious food and drink…

By the time we had opened all of our presents, we all felt very lucky…

We even braved the cold wind and wrapped up for a quick (yet bracing) walk on the beach, and managed to see some crazy people enjoying a Christmas Day dip in the sea!

Seeing as Christmas TV this year seemed particularly crap and nobody was in the mood for Trivial Pursuit, despite our best efforts…

…we ended our day by releasing a fire lantern in the garden (lit with Dad’s new blowtorch!) and some fireworks.

Then it was off to Ian’s parents for more of the same…

And some time with these beauties…

However, after over a week away from home, it is lovely to be back in our little flat and start finding a place for all of our new presents and purchases before welcoming in a whole new year. Ian and I plan to spend our New Year’s Eve in our pyjamas, with horror films and our favourite food…and I have never been more excited about it!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a rather reflective post about 2011 and my hopes for 2012 xxx


About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
