Listening to: Jordan and Mitch on Twitch playing League of Legends.
So, Christmas is well and truly over.. We’re waiting for New Years Eve with excitement, however I think it’ll be a quiet and rum filled day.
The Mayan Chalender ended on the 21st, and as you know there was speculation that things would not go well for the world. It seems, however, that people were out of their minds and the world didn’t end. No way…
Jan and I were waiting for 12.11 pm (that’s when it was supposed to end) and when it came around we were looking around and at each other, hoping something would happen. But nothing. We were kinda disappointed.
Any who. I’ve been working a lot lately, not used to it, so I was pretty tired when Christmas came around. Linda and I had a great time at work on the 24th, tho (Our Christmas eve when we open pressies and eat loads of food), and it’s become a tradition, it seems. Jan was really sweet too. He made us smoked salmon and scrambled eggs sandwiches for us to enjoy. It was so delicious.
And then I made dinner. Dried lambs ribs which is re hydrated and then steamed. It’s an old recipe :p
Camilla and Espen were here too, which made it extra nice. And now we come to the pressies:
I got what I wanted from my parents and brother: Money.
From Camilla and Espen: a gift card (which is really great. It was from H&M’s and as far as I know they are the only one selling Hello Kitty socks and they also have those nice nail files I like… and nail polish). And we got a gift basket with cider, jams and other preserves.
From Linda: A scarf which was really nice and Winnie the Poh socks.
From my boss: A lovely flower. Which is really bad because the poor thing won’t survive her.
From work: I wasn’t really supposed to get anything, but they sent one of these too many, so I got one anyway. A loudspeaker, rechargeable for iphone, ipod, mp3 android cells etc. It has a REALLY nice sound to it.. much better than the cheap crap I had.
From my aunt and uncle: A really swanky handcream and an pre anti-wrinkle cream.
Father in Law: a toaster (joined for both Jan and I).
From Jan: A really nice necklace with a peace sign.
From Jan’s coworker: A gift basket with cider, jams and other preserves.
I think that was about it.
And now I’ll continue enjoying myself and the great food I’m making.. and all the candy and goodness we have.
Be utterly excellent to each other! 😉
