I went over my phone contract this month. By £230. Dad was not impressed. I don't really know how I managed it, other than long distance relationships are hard, and we spoke everyday for an hour. Woops. Dad is giving me the silent treatment. I'll have to dig into the savings to scrape together enough cash to pay him back. Also, my laptop is dead, the charger doesn't work. :-( such a bad day. Dad literally shouted at me for half an hour. I'm sure it'll be fine.

I had a fab day yesterday anyway... I was starting to get sick of the family. Couldn't go anywhere without everyone asking what I was doing, for what reason, and how long for. Gets a bit claustrophobic! Anyway, after he finished work, my boyfriend came up, and then after hanging out with my family for a bit, we both went to his family. His uncle has a Boxing Day tradition of all hanging out. It's my first Christmas with them, and let me tell you, it was INSANE! Complete polar opposites to my subdued family. I drove up to his house, and then realised that I simply had to consume copious amounts of alcohol in order to fit in, never-mind cope! Left my car there overnight, and collected it this evening. Last night, I got in at like 1am, passed out on the living room floor, woke up again, put the remainder of Love Actually on, then marvelled at how the room was spinning. My nephew and sister were all sharing my room that night, so sneaking up to bed without making loads of noise was very hard!
A great night, everyone is so welcoming :-) feel like part of the family already ;-)
I hope you all had a lovely Boxing Day... Do you guys have traditions too?
Anyway, I'm quite tired. So might get some shut eye now. Love you all :-)

After all the commercial hype and build up, do you ever feel a sense of let-down right after the holidays? Why or why not?

The sense of let-down usually hits me straight after Christmas Dinner. The presents have all been unwrapped, the food has been eaten, and everyone sits down and falls asleep. As a child, this used to bother me greatly, as all I wanted to do was play. I can see that this bothers my sister's children equally as much, now that I have grown up, and we have a 1 year old and a 4 year old in the family. Bless. Me, I'd rather go somewhere in the evening, for a drink or something, or see my boyfriend. Just so that the day doesn't fizzle out quite so quickly. 

I don't think the commercial build up towards Christmas is the cause for such disappointment. I think that's just the way of life - when you grow a bit older, it's obviously going to lose it's magic. And let's face it; without children there would be no need for such a magical Christmas image to be portrayed. For adults, I reckon that the best bit about Christmas is the look of wonder on their child's, or other youngest members of their family's faces as they realise in the morning, that presents have arrived under the tree. 

Also, Boxing day is SUCH a let down day. What are you supposed to do? I'll be waiting till the boyfriend comes round. Family is lovely and all that, but everyone together - can get a bit tiresome. Especially in the evenings when all anyone does is go to bed, bar my Dad who sits around and watches crappy T.V. 

However, all this aside, Christmas '10 has been lovely. I'm full on turkey and chocolate, smiling, and having a lovely evening. I hope you all are too. :)

This is a long shot... but does anyone have a spare ticket to the V for SUnday for Weston Park(Muse Headline)? I got scammed, and only have one ticket - need one more. I would be willing to travel a fair way to collect.
