Merry Christmas!

We had such a wonderful Christmas (it may sound bad but I didn’t drink anything apart from bubbly the whole day!) Before I tell you more about this, let me show you some pictures from our house Xmas party and some London Xmas decorations :)

Our party was such good fun! This is my secret santa present – glowsticks – on me and Jun x

How I was getting ready for the party – burning ginger biscuits, making home bread which I forgot to serve and wearing a hat so my hair doesn’t smell of cooking

And here I got a bit over the top with Russian pies (one is with meat and potatoes and the other one with apples). Please don’t say anything about pie decorations! (believe me there is nothing I haven’t heard already, haha).

Also I shaved my left whisker (I wanted to have a bigger undercut)

This is us dressed as Leeloo and Ruby Rhod for the Halloween party (and Cameron in a nice dress and Lee as a sexy nurse)

Our Xmas Eve

This Xmas I want to devote to Rhi who moved to Abu-Dhabi this year (we love you and miss you a lot!)

So here we go – our Christmas was fantastic: we ate, drank, played charades, went to a pub, sang karaoke and had such a fun time! This is Ben wearing his Xmas present from Vinny and Sarah, his cook hat :) The turkey turned out quite well, by the way, brining does work! Lee’s pork was fantastic and Jason’s veggie roast yum – I could eat it every day!
