Christmas Plans

Post by Liz944 » Fri Nov 28, 2008 11:06 am

With Chistmas getting ever closer.... What are yor plans for Christmas? Are you having a quite Christmas at home or visiting relatives or going away somewhere exotic?

For me this Christmas we are having it at home with our relatives joining us on xmas day and boxing day. This will make a change as it is normally the other way around....

I'm staying in a hotel with my parents that is near where my Grandparents live. It has a swimming pool so it will be exciting to go swimming on Christmas Day!

I will be going to my parent's place on Christmas day, and whatever day they decide to have the whole family around for a party, last year was good though, my grandparent's friend had died, so they didn't have anywhere to go, as they usually see that friend, so me, and my uncle went to the shop, as I wanted a bottle of coke, as I was going to be driving that night,

well what I didn't know was my grandmother can't stand cheap coke in her becardi, so she was having some of my coke, well she hardly had any coke, as everyone was pouring it 99% becardi, and 1% coke!! well maybe 2% coke! so she was the drunkest I had ever seen her.

so this year going to make sure their is proper drinks there, as the bottle of coke only lasted like 2 hours, as it was a relatively small bottle, as I didn't know that it would go so fast, or that my brother would come down and pour himself a drink of it as well, otherwise I would have got the tesco's special offer on coke.

so this year going to try planning ahead, as my mother, and father go all out for alcohol, and nothing for those that can't drink, like me, and my uncle, and brother first thing in the evening, but then my brother drinks later in the evening. but me, and my uncle are always on soft drinks all night.

but the driving that night, and Christmas day is still in question, as it depends on how I am feeling, even though I haven't/won't loose my licence with the excess fluid on the brain, I just got to be resposible over knowing if I am fit enough to drive it. otherwise be spending a couple of nights there, oh well the cats won't mind, extra food for them!! and with their favourite food (Turkey) then I won't hear too many complaints apart from them not getting it quick enough, and as it will be their first christmas, then they won't know what to make of it all, and having everyone there at the same time will be interesting.

We're staying home, my mum is coming to stay from the 20th-27th which covers xmas and most of chanukah. We got the inlaws coming around on the 26th, then probably go to their house to see various parts of wifes family. Pretty low key this year.

20th-27th Mum is visiting
26th Inlaws round for dinner
1st Jan round to inlaws to see wifes side of family (half siblings etc)

It shall be fun because Hanukkah runs over the same time frame so mum will be here for most of it. Soo much food I think I'm going to explode. So much for the diet. :whistle:
