We celebrated the holiday at home this year, just the three of us. It was calm and quiet and very peaceful which sounds like crazy talk with a 10 month old but it really was (at least until we let him try chocolate pudding). Forrest was very curious about his giant sock full of jingly jangly toys. He very much enjoyed pulling things out one by one and ripping up all the paper. We kept things simple; a few odds and ends scouted from charity shops, some of his favourite foods, a triangle (which he loves) and Urwin the crocodile came to live with us (which I love). We watched movies together, ate burgers, let the baby try chocolate for the first time and talked about the Christmas days to come.

In other news, if you follow me on Instagram, you might know that my very sneaky and thoughtful husband went and booked me some surprise plane tickets for Christmas (despite our no-presents rule). All that moaning about having itchy feet and wanting to take Forrest on a trip obviously made an impression. So we three are off the Berlin next week to visit my little brother and to hopefully drink lots of beer. I’ll be back in the new year with a new look for this space but until then, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas this year and very happy and hopeful new year.
