i hate it when bloggers/vloggers have to be all, "awh i'm so sorry i haven't posted in a few days. because they have loads of impatient subscribers who pester them for another video/blog after a few days.
i see it most with youtubers, namely charlieissocoollike and nerimon. seriously? give them a bit of space. they have lives you know? if they didn't they'd have nothing to blog to you about so it works both ways, nuuuh.
but obviously they have millions of fans and i don't. in fact i don't think anyone actually reads this blog. so I WILL NOT APOLOGISE for having a nice christmas.
christmas was lush.
*about to go into full life description, skip this part*
my grandma sleeps over from christmas eve till boxing day, which really makes it feel like christmas because up until this point it hadn't. probably due to the looming as level exams in january. on christmas eve night we all chilled together, which is unusual. very. i mentioned the fact that it was nice to chill with them all together and my grandma looked worried and told my dad not to open the back door because it was cold, bless her. the only thing that i didn't like.. MY MUM WOULDN'T LET ME PUT COOKIES OUT FOR SANTA. what does she think i'm old or something?! maturity hurts. (i have since ate said cookies and am feeling a lot less bitter about the matter).
christmas day itself was traditional. grandma gets woken up by my brother, she tries to distract him for as long as possible before he wakes me up. we take our stockings upstairs, all sit on my mum and dads bed and open the presents. (i got hand warmers for my early skate sessions on wednesday morning.. your hands are the only thing that get cold). then we all went down-down stairs, drank bucks fix and ate bread (sounds odd, really nice. honest). for breakfast while we wantingly (word?) stared at the two lines of presents in the living room. finally we got to open said lines, i always feel sorry for the adults at this point because so far all the present opening has been about the kids. but hey ho, i don't want to be an adult. i got.. a polaroid and film! >< and a cd player for my car, and a taylor swift piano book, among other things. then my uncle who lives next door came in, this is the first year since he split with my auntie that he's been alone on christmas morning :( it was obvious he missed the kids, it just wasn't the same:'( we then chilled together, and opened the presents from under the tree (spoilt brat i know) we got to give the adults their presents and my grandma gave me a beautiful ice skate necklace. we cooked and had christmas lunch together, i swear christmas dinner is the best thing in all 365(6?) days of the year. it was BEAUT. and finally my cousins arrived from their mum's, we got to see my auntie after all which was lush. they're only young so christmas is super special for them. they told us all about what father christmas had brought them, we played with their new toys and then they went to bed early because 'santa was coming to their dad's house tonight.' *off topic* this is the only benefit i see in divorce.. TWO SETS OF PRESENTS *back on topic* we then all chilled together and it was lush until we went to sleep.
boxing day was a 'second christmas,' i was supposed to get up and watch the kids open their presents but my lazy arse wouldn't move so i found out all about it later. my cousin has a SNAKE. a real, bloody, evil, scary SNAKE. and he lives next door. with his SNAKE... i will never sleep again.
we had a second christmas dinner (i am going to be fat) and we'll be eating leftovers for days. we played wii/xbox games all day/night and though i'm officially a playstation girl i will admit that just dance is a good game. nothing beats mario kart though. what i don't understand is why they felt the need to play darts on xbox kinect when they had a perfectly workable dart board upstairs? people confuse me.
so games, and we watched new comedy dvds/boxsets and the day was generally just lush. we all had to go and observe my cousin's new doll that CRIES when it's in the bath. when i was little i had a doll that peed and it was the height of technology, this thing is magic. boxing day finished basically in the same way as christmas day but with the addition of cousins. lushylush.
other than christmas.. FOREVER YOURS NEWS. alex day's song got to NUMBER FOUR in the official CHRISTMAS DAY chart. seriously an unsigned, relatively unknown artist to get that high in the most sought after chart of the year is amazing. i am beyond proud of him and the power of youtube, NERMIE ARMY. just shows that it's not just the record labels that control the music industry, and we can have a say if we really want. most people just chose not to, and they follow the crowd and listen to popular music. sigh.
okay, this was way too long. going now.
