Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve! The lights are on, the train is running around the tree, and I have a glass of sparkling wine to celebrate. Yay! =D

I finished work at 3:30 today, which was very nice, and I won an Impulse body spray money tin in the raffle. I now have two days off to enjoy the festive fun, which I am very happy about, although I'll be making up for it by working long hours on New Year's Eve and Day next week.

I've been so busy this year that I haven't had a chance to watch any Christmassy TV episodes or traditional films, which is a shame. I mean, I did see Muppet Christmas Carol at the cinema, but normally I make a point of watching things at home and I simply haven't had a chance this year. I might have to try and watch a few after Christmas, but that's not quite the same.

I did find time to make eggnog on Saturday, which was very nice. But most of my weekend was spent wrapping presents with Christmas 24 on in the background. So while I may not have watched the traditional Christmas films, I have seen the American perfume maker falling in love with the Scottish duke, and the childhood sweethearts rekindle their romance at their small town's Sugarcane Christmas Festival. A distinct lack of identical strangers swapping lives in this year's offerings though.

Now it's time for me to go and watch Child Genius vs Celebrities and hope that the celebrities can triumph once again. I hope that everyone is having a great Christmas Eve!
