All wrapped up

This is the first Christmas I can remember properly as I was too young before that. There was lots of stuff going on so let me tell you all about it.

It started the weekend before Christmas and I had a sit by the fire in the pub followed by helping choose what TV to watch.

I then tried helping Karen open some presents but got a bit wrapped up!

I then had to go back to work for a few days and that was full of festive fun. Lots and lots and lots of food around. The first was some donuts and cakes that Vicki and Maria brought into the office.

I couldn’t decide which one to have so had both – yum, yum. It got a bit messy though as the donut was as big as me. I even got sugar on my ear so had to be taken for a wash.

After all that sugar, I was on a bit of a high and ready to party (that Maria does tend to rather lead me astray).

Then there was yet more food in the form of a ladies lunch and so much to choose from. I had a selection guinness, cider and gin to drink but only had a sip of each as it was a work day.

After all that alcohol, I needed some sustenance and looked at the Christmas buffet menu but decided on the mini burger slider. They were just the right size for me but a few too many, fortunately I had Vicki to help me.

For the Christmas weekend, I was invited to Maria’s and John’s which was very lovely. I saw the angel lights and said hello to the Christmas snowman.

I even got to help with the presents.

After all that food and TV watching, I needed some exercise so, when I got back to Margate, I took the dog for a walk (or did he take me?!).

That’s it for the Christmas story, Monkey style, and back to work tomorrow but only for a few days before the long new year weekend.
