I don’t know about you but I spent weeks steeling myself for Christmas only to find I blinked and it’s nearly 2014!
I didn’t have much to report over Christmas, both of the kids were with their Dads as we have an alternate Christmas arrangement. I always get a little sad on Christmas morning, especially as this was the first year Harry has gone off to his Dad as we were still together last Christmas.
Anyway, it’s been and gone and both children were thoroughly spoilt so I think they were happy. I bought Harry a Toot Toot train set, which he loves and some pop-up books he has barely noticed! He received so many toys from everyone I wanted to keep it simple and he seems really happy with his train set, though he enjoyed destroying the track more than actually playing with it!
Sophie’s at that age where toys don’t really cut it so I got her a Nintendo 3DS, an iPod dock (God help me), a rather grown up leather jacket and some smellies. She’s been so busy she’s barely stopped to enjoy her presents here but she’s on her way home today so I’m sure she’ll get stuck in.
I definitely didn’t do too badly. My boyfriend got me these cute polka dot Superdry pants and this super soft pink jumper, a gorgeous Swarovski necklace, a gym top (I can never have enough gym stuff!) underwear and Marc Jacobs Honey perfume. I was a very spoilt girl and had a fab day with his family. It was nice not having to cook, though I did miss the kids.
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
