I’m driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can’t wait to see those faces
Last year was the first year I’d spent away from my parents during the festive period and it was the first year we had not been able to do our family traditions, which is sad, however, this year is very exciting for me and my partner, it will be our first Christmas together in our own home.
To mark this occasion and the (hopefully!) many more after this we’re putting some measures in place to ensure we have a fantastic first Christmas, even with our crazy Christmas schedules. Here’s what we’ve come up with so far.
This year we visited my partners family in Nuneaton, and on Boxing Day we’re planning on spending the day with my family having a second Christmas Day! I’m hoping to make this a usual occurrence as I love being surrounded by my family at Christmas time.
However, one year I’d like to break this tradition and have my partners family down for Christmas.
The Christmas Eve box
I’ll be working this Christmas Eve and it’s very likely so will my partner, although we usually come home around the same time which means we could both enjoy opening our Christmas Eve boxes, our boxes should consist of new pyjamas and snacks that we can snuggle up with in bed and watch a television show.
A cuppa and toast
This is pretty much our usual morning routine if we’re both off work. We usually take turns making the tea, pop an episode of Suits or The Big Bang Theory on and snuggle up. I’d like to continue this tradition on Christmas Day, I’ll be in work before my partner so he’s going to have to commit to waking up a little earlier.
Whilst we enjoy our morning I’d also like to get the present opening underway, at our home we have the presents from his family and also the presents we bought for each other, I’d like to do this in our own home, just the two of us.
