Slow Christmas

Published January 8, 2013 by theycallmemrstibbs

Sorry I’ve been a bit slow since Christmas blogging, but we had the most relaxing Christmas that we didn’t want to end.

We decided the best way to start our Christmas break was to watch The Hobbit. Seriously a great decision.
Whilst we were on a movie streak we thought let’s go watch Hotel Transylvania, kids film but with a lot of adult humor. Then we thought. Can we get a three peat of good films. So we went to see Seven Psychopaths, very, very funny and Colin Farrell using his actual accent.

Like I said relaxing Christmas and new year.
We started with Christmas Eve eve at our friends, Carolin and Ruediger’s house doing a German tradition Feuerzangenbowle, which is mulled wine with a sugar loaf which is coated in 75% rum and set alight over it. Very enjoyable even though we had enough for 12 people and only 6 of us showed up.

Christmas day!
We were having a small Christmas, just the 2 of us. So we decided to take it easy by having a small lie in, breakfast, presents then Skype our families. We also decided against tradition food we had turkey at thanksgiving, so we decided pork loin chops for Christmas day.
All went swimmingly.

New Years eve & day
Again we decided let’s have a quiet one compared to last years 10 nationality New Year. So just the 2 of us. Watching the New Year celebration on tv and hoping the Rose Parade campers wouldn’t do as they did last year. So bed at 1 am as we were getting up to watch the parade on tv in the morning. But low and behold the campers struck again 5am car horns, air horns and drums. Great to wake up to after 4 hours sleep.
But we managed to fall back asleep and got up to watch the parade.
Christopher didn’t want to go back to work, but did.
