I feel like I’ve blinked and missed Christmas, however, my body is telling me otherwise. 3 days of none stop excitement has absolutely taken it out of me. I managed to get myself up just enough energy to take down my Christmas decorations and do my favourite clean of the year (decluttering ready for the new year!) and then I peaked and spent an hour laying in bed half asleep.
I must admit, the excitement got a bit too much and I became a bit cheeky, heckling Becky at every chance I got and getting angry and bolshy with her because she was better at games than I was, next Christmas she’s going down!!! I was well and truly being a sore loser.

^ Alison won the jackpot and got over 900 tickets! – I won the jackpot 3 times on a different machine but didn’t manage to get as many tickets as that!
^ Cheese and meat, what more could you possibly want?

The big day arrived. Christmas Day always feels like a disappointment (There’s no excitement of Santa anymore, even at 24 I’m still sulking about it!), I mean, you have such a massive build-up for what can only be described as another day… as a child it definitely didn’t feel like this but as you get older you realise that really for the adults Christmas Day is just like every other day because the magic of Santa Clause is no longer there. Never the less, I’m never disappointed with the company over Christmas, that’s my fave part. Being able to spend the day eating food and playing games with the family. What more could you honestly want? (And obviously, it’s not Christmas Day unless someone or two get told off at some point! This definitely happened!)
