The Christmas Haul

I hope you all had an awwwwesome Christmas yesterday - and most importantly an awesome christmas dinner! And if you were affected by any of the awful flooding down South then I hope it didn't spoil your day too much.
I don't want this to come across as a braggy post because it isn't at all, just me sharing my Christmas antics with you all!
It was a day filled with proper yorkshire puddings, too much chocolate (even for a chocaholic like myself), champers, gifting and cats - so all in all, a pretty great day! Now that i'm in my 20's I don't really expect too much, and honestly anything I do get now is great because being a student means that I NEVER get to go shopping or treat myself, so i'm very grateful for anything that comes my way, including a free roast dinner - and that roast dinner was pretty damn good... My dad made the Yorkshire puddings the size of my head and instead of turkey we had chicken, served with a thousand stuffing balls (on my plate anyway!) and it was heavenly! Of course we had copious amounts of alcohol and my dad ended up dressing up as Batman and waving at people in the village. Maybe it's a Northern thing, maybe it's Rogan thing...
I think my favourite part is actually giving presents. I love the whole process of picking things out for people that you think they will love and then seeing their faces when they open it... And the satisfaction of getting it right - which of course I did ;)
Anyway, I was on Santa's good girl list this year luckily, so I was treat to a few lovelyyyy things... Just one problem with my amazing gifts and that's getting them back to uni! The only downfall of Christmas!
