Because of my job as a community care working, there is always a chance I have to work on Christmas Day but luckily this year I had the day off.
Unlike the last few years, church seemed to be uneventful. We enjoyed the singing and for the first time Matilda stayed awake for most of the service and was able to receive a blessing. Although secretly I was tracking Santa on my phone and I was quite excited when he was heading to London while we were singing 'Hark the Herold Angles Sing'!
After we got home we went straight to bed. Went we woke up the next morning Santa had been. Matilda got lots of Lego, my mum got some jewellery and alcohol and I got a sewing machine.
I have never really used a sewing machine and so it took me awhile to set it up and use it. Matilda has given me a list of things she wants me to make. I don’t think she realises that I am only w beginner and will need time to practice.
We had a great day and I hope you enjoyed your Christmas too.
