My Christmas Day.. and the days after...

How was everyone's Christmas? What did you do to celebrate?

Well my Christmas was really good. Daniel and I woke up around half 9 and opened our presents; I am so glad Daniel finally got to wear the coat I got him. It is such a nice coat - for the bloody price of it, it was definitely worth it. Daniel and I's first Christmas went soooo well!

Once we opened our presents, my step-dad picked us both up and drove us to my mum's house where my my two sisters, little brother and mum was waiting for us; Nanna and Grandad and my Great Auntie Ann were joining us an hour later. Our christmas dinner was yummy!

He was finally so happy to open the present which was the coat I had gotten him; the price was worth it and I am so glad he loves his coat. It is so heavy but super soft and keeps you out of the cold. I think I may start wearing his coat because I
it is that good haha! Sorry Daniel, I am robbing your jacket! In the background you can see the yellow mug I got him as another present - only fools and horses mug. I think only English people would understand what show the only fools and horses is; it is a classic!


The family sat around the TV to watch the film, Elf, which I
is such a good festive film! I think whoever watches this or who have watched it will enjoy it. Who doesn't love Santa amd Elves? I screen captured this on my sisters Instagram. She tagged me in the picture haha. The film is about a young baby who has been put up for adoption climbing into Santa's present sack and ending up in the North Pole; Santa adopts him and the human dresses like an elf for his entire life and then somehow figures out his real father. He moves to New York to find his father but his father has no idea about his real son. Elf hasn't grown up and still acts like a child so it all gets a little crazy.

I love watching films with the family because it brings us all closer together and we hardly ever get to do this; we literally only do this on Christmas Day. It's great to have the family all together in one place, especially Christmas; the time for joy! 

This is my Grandad figuring out Hayley's phone

My Grandad loves figuring out new things and now that Hayley has the new Sony Experia whatever phone, she is showing him. I love my Grandad, he is so cute and funny, I love seeing him and spending time with him. It was great that he came to my mum's house for Christmas so we could all spend Christmas together. There will be more of this in years to come and I can't wait. 

English Christmas Dinner

Okay now this is a heap full of food. Typical English Christmas Dinner! Gammon, Turkey, peas, broccoli, sprouts, roast potatoes, stuffing, carrot and swede, gravy and pig's in blanket (sausage wrapped in bacon.) This was soo yummy, even Daniel went back for more... and more.. and more... he even had what Hayley and I had left haha! See, my mum's Christmas Dinner does taste good. My little brother was literally so excited to have his christmas dinner, he just kept asking when it would be ready; even when he went to the pub with the men, he kept asking. Typical blokes and food eh??

If you check out my Dayre, you will be able to see more pictures and things I did on Christmas Day.
(can only see on mobile device)

Daniel and I decided that it was Daniel's family we have to see; we couldn't see them on Christmas Day because Daniel and I went to see my family, as you already know. There was no public transport and Daniel's relatives couldn't pick him up - doesn't matter anyway because the whole day was rammed with things to do and people to see! So when Daniel and I went to his Dad's house, we said our late 'Merry Christmas' to each other, gave hugs and exchanged gifts. We then sat round the table for a chat then started to play games haha. It was fun! 

As soon as Daniel's little brother, Kieran, heard us downstairs, he ran downstairs and gave Daniel a great big hug and it was soooo cute! We watched Darts, chatted some more, then Daniel, Kieran and I went upstairs where I watched the two brothers play on the PS3; Kieran got some new games for Christmas and wanted to play them with Daniel. It was funny watching them both; i sat back, relaxed and watched.

Soon it was time to go, so Daniel and I said out byes, gave hugs; even Kieran gave me a hug awww! And then Daniel and I went on our way home. Haha Daniel's dad gave me Daniel's old hat to keep me warm; well Daniel stole mine so now I have his mwuahaha!

When Daniel and I got home, we sat and watched films then played games on my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3; i am obsessed with it and can't put it down!! We went to bed but then I realised I had a camera, a cute boyfriend, and wasn't sleepy.....

OK, picture bombing right now!

Sweet kiss on the cheek

haha his face is so funny!

Scowl and pose


Looks like i have photoshopped him in.. I haven't


Go Ugly!

erm.. that's my ear... STOP eating it! 

Okay, we are crazy... i think we put that quite clear in the pictures haha! It was around 2am and we were bored with a camera and we wanted to test it out. Instead of the normal 'smile and wave' we do what we do - GO CRAZY! Pulling faces is so much better than being boring and just smiling.. am I right, or am I right?

Eventually we did put the camera down and go to sleep. There are plenty more photos but they are not going on the internet; they are too funny, ugly and MINE mwuahaha! No you can't see the rest! *sticks out tongue* 

These are my favourite photos out of allll the photos I had taken, to see these pictures on their own just check out my Instagram: lauren_ohara_x 

Daniel has currently gone to work whilst i have decided to relax in my new Zebra onsie and update my blog. My Christmas blog had to go into this one because it is three days late, whoops! Oh well, you've finally got to see it right? Don't complain! I have work at 5pm tonight; Fantasia are appearing for tonight's show. What's Fantasia anyway? Tomorrow and Monday is the Peter Pan theatre show and I am also doing both! it is a 5pm start tomorrow as well. On Monday i start at 12pm and I am doing a double shift; why have I agreed to do that? I think I forgot that it was a double BLAH! Ah well, more money! 

hmm.. i am quite excited for Tuesday because.... IT'S THE NEW YEARS EVE PARTY WOO! i love New Year's Eve. This year i am spending it at Daniel's Dad's Friend's house - that did make sense didn't it haha? There will be a blog on that later on next week so keep a look out and keep checking my blog to see if I have. 

You are all amazing.

God bless.

See you later.

It's Christmas what? Eve? Woo!

It's Christmas Eve ahhh!
I am in such a festive mood; I am currently sat watching Fred Claus drinking a brew - this is going to be my day. It wouldn't sound fun if it was on a normal day, but it is Christmas and all the films I am going to watch are Christmas films. 

i am recording The Grinch so I can't watch it when it is on, i am going to be a good girlfriend and wait for Daniel to come home so we can watch it together; when he comes home, i am going to make him a brew and make him get into comfy clothes, so then we can sit together, snuggle up and watch The Grinch. It is the ultimate Christmas film so I am not going to watch it alone. 

The Muppet's Christmas Carol is on the film list of course!

So what are go beautiful people doing to celebrate Christmas Eve?
What are you doing on Christmas Day?
Comment below

Well my Christmas Day will be where my mum picks Daniel and I up and takes us to her house where my Nana, Grandad, Great Auntie Ann, Step-Dad, little brother, little sister, and twin sister will be as well. Yep, there are going to be TEN of us celebrating Christmas together. How are TEN people going to sit round a six seater table eating Christmas Dinner? haha! Let's see how this plans out. At some point during the day, Daniel, my twin and my little brother will visit my Grandma, Grandad and Dad at their house (me, my twin and little brother all have the same Dad, but my little sister is my Step-dad and mum's daughter... if that makes sense?) Normally my two cousins on my Dad's side comes down to my Grandma's for Christmas too so I get to see them; I miss them loads. After I have been to my Grandma's, I go back to my mum's house where other relatives come and visit and exchange gifts. Some family I don't want to see; they are not blood related and after some certain problems, they are not welcome! i haven't really liked them anyway, they are stuck up and complete bitches! They are the three Witches of the North-West. 

I am either staying at my mum's with Daniel or coming home; most likely staying. On Boxing Day, Daniel and I are visiting Daniel's side of the family, I have no idea how we are getting there. Are public Transport running on Boxing Day? If not, we are going to have to get a lift off one of Daniel's relatives. 

How is your Christmas Eve going? Having fun?

What is Eggnog by the way? American's have it, English people don't. I don't even know why I am asking to be honest.

I hate how there are adverts in the middle of films on TV channels, what is the point in putting adverts in a film? There should be adverts at the end of the film, yano when people actually may want to watch them; well, no one likes adverts anyway. I don't. The only time adverts are acceptable, are when there are film trailers, then I get to see what films are coming out! Haha speak of the devil, a film trailer just came on for 'The Delivery Man' and it looks hilarious! Why am i blabbing on about shit? Oh well!

Why do girl's say: 'I want a man to keep me warm for Christmas.' 
No you don't. Get a blanket, put the heating on, get a hot chocolate or a brew. Unless she just wants to use him for presents? Bitch. Seriously, girls, STOP with that! You don't need a man to 'keep you warm,' if you stopped looking and just concentrated on yourself, then you will find that someone. It's like watching paint dry or a kettle boil - it takes longer. So what if you are single over Christmas, you have family! So again, STOP with that, it really annoys me. Girls, just stop the desperate moans and get on with your life. This only relates to the girls that say this. No offense to the other normal girls. 

Omg I am so excited for Christmas.
He's making a list, he's checking it twice, gonna find out who's naughty and nice. Santa Claus is coming to town! 
Yes, i am a big kid. It's Christmas for God's sake!! Everyone should be a big kid on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it's the Christmas Spirit. Adults, yes you adults, get your kid act on a celebrate Christmas like you did when you was ten or younger. I won't tell you twice! You want to know why I want you to act like a kid and make your kids happy and make you get into the Christmas spirit?

Well it's because.....

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Merry Christmas everyone. Have a good one!

May Santa bring you loads of presents. i hope you have an amazing Christmas wherever you are in the world. For some of you it will be Christmas Day TODAY so....

Merry Christmas to you lot on the other side of the world.
