I do love a trip down old memory lane and i thought i would take you along this time as we look at what christmas memories i can still remember.
I grew up living with my brother so most will include him
- Mum going shopping and coming back with big bags to send off to Father Christmas.Craig and me go hunting in the wardrobe, seeing one that hadn’t been wrapped and he goes to me ‘ooo look what you got for Christmas’. Well he got a pleasant surprise when he opened it and he goes ‘Mum i think i got hollys present’…’nope its yours’ ha ha 😂
- It was the Christmas party at my brothers judo club and of course little sisters were invited. We were told Father Christmas was going to make an appearance and sure enough he did. I was only 7 and highly excited- ‘look Craig it’s Father Christmas’. He looked at me laughing and said ‘unless he has the same tattoos as Dad i don’t think so Hol’ After that I didn’t believe in him and at the tender age of 7 that was the last letter I sent off to the North Pole.
- Christmas morning I would be up First about 5am look at the bottom of my bed and see if my fluffy pillowcase had been filled up. I ran into my brothers room shouting ‘He’s been he’s been.’…. ‘Go away… wake me up in a few hours’ . Don’t you just love your siblings.
- Christmas tree used to go up on the 20th December and mum used to put Cadburys chocolates on there and said on Christmas morning we could eat them. 90% of them had gone by then and nobody owned up who had been picking I think everyone had a sneaky bite.
Here’s a few Christmas pics I found on my laptop.
The first one was new bikes one Christmas and the second one was when I was eager to hoover 😉 different story now.
Hope you enjoyed going back in time with me .
