Since Devil Spawn came on the scene we have very much done what others have wanted. Gone here, there and everywhere. There hasn’t been a year yet where we have just settled in for the day and well to put it simply, bludged.
After last Christmas I told Papa devil that this year we are having our Christmas. We are sitting at home, doing things at our pace and anyone who wants to join in is more than welcome (except Papa Devils son but that is a whole different story). I’m really looking forward to it.
I’ve sat down and written a list of food I want to have on Christmas Day. All cold stuff, most likely to the horror of Oculus Mundi ;). You know the old saying, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Well that is precisely what I plan on doing. Scrumptious Prawns, ham on the bone and more salads that you can pole a stick at. I may even have a go at a scrumptious dessert. I have been scouring Pinterest for…. research ahem.
At this stage I have no idea who will be here other than Papa Devil, Devil Spawn and myself and at the moment I am ok with that. I will most likely freak out when it gets closer but at the moment my list making is keeping me calm. I love a good list.
Once food is served and done, I intend on doing nothing but veging in the back yard or on the couch and drinking vodka. Most likely it will be stinking hot so I inted to get Devil Spawn a pool between now and Christmas that we can lounge around in for the duration of the day.
Devil Spawn is more into the whole Christmas thing this year, so it will be great to leave biscuits and a beer out for Santa and see the excitement on his face on Christmas morning when he opens all of his presents.
I want to celebrate my self by surrounding myself with the people who I love and love me right back. Christmas can be such a stressful time and it’s nice to have good people around you.
What are you doing this festive season?
