    Not overloaded with presents, but maybe wine and bubbly:xThumb:

    It's just the two of us this year, in the van on our own......the first time ever away from home at Christmas. So the kids are doing their own thing this year for the first time (they're 28 and 30 though:xsmile:)...........no stress!

    Have a good Christmas!

    We had hidden pressies in ours a few years ago when the kids were young. Left tv in van, switched it on Xmas morning and it blew up, cos it was damp

    Our vans in storage, waiting for us to get her for our trip to tan hill inn then Moffat for new year.
    The presents are all in our bedroom, for a change. Though it's the first time we've not had to go up in the loft to get them once the kids are in bed!
    No doubt this year we will be In bed before them. We've all been into the village for a few drinks , now the kids are 18,18,20 (5 pubs to chose from!) We went out early , back for 7.30pm.
    No doubt this year will be the first time we have to wake them all up in the morning too.
    Merry Christmas everyone xx
