I`ve edited them , so as not to be a really long post today !!
Here goes ......
Christmas ones .....
1 . My sister and i shared a bedroom for many years , with beds opposite each other . One Christmas Eve , the gap was just big enough to hold hands , so we did , until we eventually fell asleep .
2 . My mum always bought me a homemade Christmas cake , from a local bakery . You could choose what size / shape you wanted , and she always requested it without candied peel - I hate it !
3. Up until the age of 14 , my sister and and i always got a present to open on Boxing day ! It was something else to look forward too !
4. The first Christmas after we had to move to a smaller house , due to the housing recession . My sister and i spent our weekly pocket money on getting tins of food , to make a hamper , for a present for our parents , as we knew money was tight .
5 . One christmas morning , we awoke really early . Went downstairs , opened nearly all of our presents carefully . We both got a small doll , called Carrie and Christopher . Mine had the "anatomical bits " for the baby boy ! ( And i still have it in the loft somewhere ) Then we tried to rewrap them best we could , and went back to bed , ready to come down again , and reopen them , and try to look pleased !
Weird / random facts .....
Although i was married for 6 years , i never cooked a christmas dinner !! We always went out , so it was done for me . I didn`t cook my first one until 3 Christmas `s ago !!
My partner and i have always joked about , going into a restaurant and only ordering from the sweet menu ! So we are going to do that one day !
If i don`t put a slick of lipbalm on , when i got to bed . I don`t feel right ! ;o)
Even if it`s really warm outside , and our bedroom window is open . I cannot sleep with out at least a sheet covering me . I have always been like that .
I often say ....
Shut up !! Or Ssshh !! ( to my noisey budgies ! )
