…I am excited about Christmas already!

This year it will be even better as my boyfriend and I now live together in our own flat. We are planning to buy a real Christmas tree and will get to decorate it together. Last year I bought a rubbish pop-up tinsel tree from Sainsburys so anything is an improvement. He hasn’t promised to put any presents under it for me though. Bah humbug.

Co-ordination is also required to visit each set of parents, this is a task that requires organisation at least two months in advance to save money on train tickets and to get a slot in everyone’s social calendar. You know you are getting old when Christmas is planned in October. Days off work were also booked in September, rock and roll.

Being anally organised is a plus in any relationship. It means the boyfriend can be a lazy so-and-so and you can take command of the relationship. This is a win win situation for myself, and I get my way most of the time. What more could a girl ask for?

Back to Christmas, we are saving for a goose this year. We also have permission from my in-laws to do the Christmas dinner. Woo! So exciting, we are going to do lots of research and cook all sorts of exciting side dishes as well as the one and only side dish pigs-in-blankets. Yum yum yum. We will do our best to not argue. Promise.
