The Holiday Season at Home

After all our pre-Christmas festivities, James & I eventually packed up and headed home to London for the Holidays singing “driving home for Christmas” most of the way. We were so excited, a delay at the Euro Tunnel (aka. Le Shuttle) couldn’t dampen our festive spirit -mainly because we were munching on a Burger King whilst watching Disney movies in the car.

Christmas at home meant a lot of long walks with my favourite girls, my poodles. At home, we enjoy walking in Bushy Park, we just have to make sure the girls don’t chase after the deer a la Fenton.

James & I spent Christmas morning together  with my pooches and opening our presents under my mother’s wonderful Christmas Tree, known to the family as Fred.

We then headed to join his family for a delicious and traditional Christmas lunch followed by lots of games, including a much anticipated game of Pie Face. After dinner, we popped off to see my best friend and partied into the night.

On 27th December, we headed down to Kempton Park Racecourse to join another one of my besties for her birthday. We had a brilliant afternoon, standing in the fresh air, having a little flutter and watching the horses. I even won a little too.

Going to the races is such a great activity to do with friends and family over the holiday season. Standing tickets were just £12 and parking was free.

The in-between days were spent walking the dogs, lolling on the sofa watching Harry Potter movies and eating copious amounts of mince pies. Until it was time to pull on our glad rags again to celebrate the end of a turbulent, adventurous and wonderful 2016.
