I don't know about you but all the planning, shopping, wrapping and general running around for Christmas we do and within twenty four hours its over for another year! Where does it go? I cannot believe that it is now January 11th and we are back at work and it doesn't seem as if we were off!
We had a lovely time over Christmas even if it did go quickly. It was just us on Christmas Day and DH's daughter and her husband joined us for Christmas Dinner in the evening which made the day seem longer. Our Boys always have their stockings on Boxing Day, I put them in their rooms overnight, and again it makes Christmas last a little longer. Unfortunately we did not get to Church this year because of the timing of things but did join in with the Carol Service with School.
Whilst The Boys were off we went to the cinema to see Mission Impossible 4 and the new Sherlock Holmes which were both excellent and definitely on the list to get on DVD when they come out.
We also went for dinner to Jamie Oliver's Italian Restaurant in Nottingham. We had been to the Covent Garden one in July when we were in London and it did not disappoint. The weather was lousy that day and it was very cosy inside. The food was great.
We managed to fit in visits to all the family before Christmas which was a lovely day, and it was great seeing everyone's decorations.
All too soon we had celebrated New Year and it was back to school and work. I do hope everyone has a great 2012 and this year is a little easier for everyone than the last few.
