The Bloke and I are spending the holidays separately with our individual families, so we had our own little celebration yesterday. We started by watching Disney’s Frozen at the cinema, (we have a collective age of 77, but we love a bit of Disney) followed by a trip to the German Market as it was the last day. The film was quite good – it has a little too much in common with ‘Tangled,’ one of my favourites, the fabulous vocal capabilities of the amazing Idina Menzel couldn’t save some of the mediocre songs and I found it a little odd that there isn’t really a main ‘villain’ figure, but it was enjoyable all the same.
When we returned home I cooked us Christmas dinner (I forgot the stuffing), and we gorged ourselves until we felt a little sick. As I come from a family that celebrates excessively with food, I find it extremely difficult to cook for just two people, and consequently our festive spread could easily have fed five or six people.
We then exchanged gifts, and as usual I was thoroughly spoiled – The Bloke bought me several books and a beautiful Pandora charm to add to my ever-growing collection.
We finished the day by watching ‘A Muppets Christmas Carol,’ during which I fell asleep.
A lovely way to finish a lovely day.
