Christmas Day In Dubai … Present Opening Time …

Merry Christmas Everyone … hope you all had a lovely day yesterday … our day was particularly busy … but lots of fun too … we started in the morning by opening the presents under our very small tree … although the decorations had increased over the last couple weeks as we got additional things to hang on it …

_MG_7586-1Perry still abit sleepy in the morning … getting the coffee going … and my Mum is looking particularly happy with her fruit salad …

_MG_7587-1 _MG_7602-1 _MG_7605-1Everyone got stuff they wanted this year … so I would say it was a successful Christmas!

IMG_0699-1 IMG_0701-1My Mum brought Perry a massive bar of Dairy Milk … I’ve never seen him so happy to see chocolate …

_MG_7610-1 _MG_7616-1For Perry’s Christmas present this year I decided to hand make his gift … or in this case gifts … the only thing I bought were Dairy Milk chocolate bars … which actually I had asked my mum to bring from London … we have Dairy Milk here but Perry insists it tastes different … I personally can’t tell the difference …

IMG_0703-1Anyway other things I made him were Coconut Macaroons, Coconut Ice, Ginger Bread Cookies, Chocolate Truffles, and I attempted to make Chocolate Fudge which never set so became Chocolate Fudge Sauce …

Kitchen Christmas Mess-1In total I think i spent pretty much the whole day in the kitchen making everything … I was at it from about 8am till 3-4pm ish … I lost track of time by the end of it all …

_MG_7665-1It was a nice relaxed morning and the kittens even got some toys too … saving those pictures for this week’s Caturday post …

Later in the day we headed over to the Atlantis hotel for the Saffron Christmas Day Brunch … stay tuned for another post about that later this week … Hope your all enjoying Boxing day … I’m back at work today and tomorrow …

Till next time …
