Then of course, once it hit the evening of 23 December, it was time for me to travel down to my parents on the coach, alone because for the 7th year in a row we spent Christmas day apart. This is because his family don't have much of a Christmas routine, so I am reluctant to alternate with my huge family, all who make a massive effort over Christmas and we have a lot of traditions. I don't expect Dave to come down with me as this would be unfair, but equally I wont give up a Christmas at my parents to not really do much here in Leeds. Anyway I digress. The first Christmas tradition we always hit up is the Carol Service at Coventry Cathedralon Christmas Eve afternoon. None of us are religious at all but it is a lovely service aimed at the kids mostly, so they all dress up and sing along, it really is lovely. It gets me right in the Christmas mood and who couldn't feel uplifted somewhere as beautiful as Coventry Cathedral.

And then it was Christmas morning, which I really love at my Mum and Dad's house but miss my Nan a lot - she used to be so excited just to see me open my gifts that she'd be up at 5am!!! I got some amazing presents, I was really spolit this year, here is a selection of the things I woke up to.
