Farewell 2014...

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and that you have had an amazing Christmas! Along with most other people, the highlight of my Christmas has been spending time with family, partaking of as much eating, drinking and merriment as possible. I went home on Christmas Eve, arriving quite late in the day after a quick stop at the supermarket for a few last minute bits and pieces. I always love arriving home at Christmas, seeing my family farmhouse in Derbyshire all festively decorated is such a happy occasion. My mum festoons the hearth with fresh ivy, holly and laurel which she gathers from her own garden. 







The lovely tree.

Pre-Christmas night out!

 We always have a late night buffet meal on Christmas Eve, with lots of delicious canapés and drinks, we stay up late and then of course we wake up late on Christmas Day! My mum bought me a cute onesie which she gave to me on Christmas Eve, so I snuggled up in that when I eventually went to bed.
On Christmas Morning, I got up late to a breakfast of croissants and Mimosas, which was a lovely start to the day. We opened our presents next to the Christmas tree, with a roaring log fire to keep us warm. It felt like Christmas had finally begun. I was lucky enough to get some lovely presents, and after breakfast we all went for a walk. After that, it was time to dress up and sit down to Christmas Dinner, my mum cooked us an amazing meal as usual. All of the traditional food was on offer, including butter basted turkey, roast potatoes, duchess potatoes, glazed parsnips, garden peas, carrots,  Brussel sprouts, stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy. Phew! It was an incredible meal, washed down with plenty of fizz. We managed to leave enough room for matured Christmas pudding with cognac-soaked fruits, served with brandy cream.

With all the food and drink involved, it is a good job that Christmas comes only once a year! On Boxing Day we had another amazing meal and then went out for drinks in the evening. There was a blizzard later and it was uncertain as to whether we would be able to make it home, but luckily we got back. The day after Boxing Day, there was crisp white snow everywhere and it looked like such a winter wonderland.  I managed to get some good photos and you just know that we had to take the opportunity to have a snowball fight! I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve whatever you have planned, I am having a relaxing day with my family followed by a drinks party in the evening at our friends farmhouse. Happy 2015 everyone and thank you all so much for supporting, reading and following my blog ! I consider you all my friends and I can't wait to share more posts with you soon. Remember, I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers! Happy New Year in advance everyone! 

Until next time,
Camille
