Blogmas Day 4 || 2017
21 days to go!!! Yay, I’m so flippin’ excited. I had work again today and it was a bit of a slow one. After I finished my shift I treated myself to my favourite Christmas drink, a Gingerbread Frappuccino from Starbucks. There’s nothing like a Gingerbread Frappe to get me in a Christmas mood. The warming flavours of gingerbread, cinnamon and nutmeg remind me of home a bit. It’s quite comforting at the moment seeing as I won’t be home for Christmas this year.
It’s kind of a weird thought really, as I always thought that I would spend my first Christmas away from home somewhere in Europe where I got to have a white Christmas… “just like the ones I used to know” as the classic old song goes. However, I am super excited to get to spend my first Christmas with my boyfriend’s family and extended family. His family is just as big as mine, so I won’t be missing out on a big family Christmas day after all!
One thing I haven’t really thought much about yet is presents for people. You’d think that working at typo I’d be all sorted, but I’m still getting my head around buying presents for someone else’s family. (Shameless plug ahead for my work)… but in all seriousness Typo has some really awesome gift ideas and Christmas decorations in store, so I am thinking of putting together a wee list of what would be on my Typo wish list.
What was your first Christmas day away from home like?
