the day started with belgian waffles for breakfast and ended with a big bowl of trifle watching jurassic park in our pjs. i was a little apprehensive about how the day would unfold, but i can honestly say it was one of the nicest days i've ever spent with my sister. we pottered in the kitchen cutting up veges and baking yorkshire puddings, drinking delicious cider and laughing uncontrollably at dinner whilst wearing paper hats and eating far more than our bellies could handle. after a bit of present opening we thought the smartest thing to do before dessert would be to take our bikes out for a spin. with all the kids out in the street with their new toys, we didn't want to feel left out. the weather was beautiful, warm as always in december but the humidity held back and so did the rain. this made for a perfect christmas sunday with my partner in crime. there's a lot of change and a month or so of a nomadic lifestyle ahead for me so it was lovely to cook my last big meal in the flower house and to spend time exploring my neighbourhood. thank you bertie, for making christmas memories that i know we'll tell our children about. your potatoes kicked ass and your friendship, one in a million.
thanks mr brenner for a tasty breakfast.
