But all those exclamations have done me :D
Actually, correct answer- spending the day sharing gifts and a meal with family. but not sure where yet/ who is hosting this year.
And feelin happy and merry but sometimes a little bit sad
Xmas Eve - Mutter Balonz's
Xmas Day - Balonz's with the Balonz side of the family
Bxing day - Balonz's with the Balonz in-laws
(I seem to remember posting a similar thing before, and one of DiS's Bitter Husks parodied it).
(with my family instead of yours)
who wants me?
(Just at bus stops.)
Don't particularly care about Christmas Eve/Day/Stephen's Day. I'm more looking forward to having my friends come home from Oz/NZ/China in December.
Would be nice to keep it to just Bro & Sis in law on the day itself.
Drink myself into a stupor, struggle through Christmas dinner, listen to a few records then get needlessly anxious over New Year's Eve.
We were hoping we'd be in our own place by then, but that's not likely now.
Proper looking forward to it, tbh! :D
Very much not looking forward to it, cheers.
9.30 Drive to manchester
10.30 Arrive at missus' mums presents etc
13.30 Drive across Manchester to pick up my Auntie and Grandma
14.00 Drive to wakefield to my parents
15.00 Presents and stuff there, finally get to start drinking
Go home boxing day
me, the other half and the kids. Reality might be a rushed morning at home, probably involving me having to cook something to then take to one of our sets of parents houses. Then watching us open presents, wincing as every of the kids' present we are given is massive, noisy, messy or all three. or I have to pretend to like something, in doing so taking it out of the packaging or wearing it so I can't return it for a credit note.
I want a goose as well, not a turkey.
I have literally no idea.
Xmas day: flying to Singapore to see a mate. New year: in Auckland. Then: mooching around north NZ for a week. Then: going to a mates' wedding. Then: mooching around south NZ for a week.
I run a pub.
COME ON DOWN AND VISIT!
as a place for people to go who either don't like Christmas or are alone for it. Just going to let them put some tunes on, play some board games etc. Will give me something productive to do :)
