    Just staying home with my son as too many households together to go to mums like we usually do 

    So will be very peaceful and relaxing for a change tbh dont know if I'm looking forward to it or not ?

    We will be doing the same as we've done for years, we have my Uncle and his partner up for the Christmas Day meal and we go to them for Boxing Day meal at night.

    Last year we had our first Christmas at home without anyone coming for their Chrsitmas dinner in 39 years together, we had 2 friends round for drinks in the evening, then on the 27th we went to the daughters for a few days, this year its just the two of us again but sadly no visit to the daughters after Christmas so will miss seeing the grandson and playing with all his presents.
    We would go to the sales on boxing day but with no buses that will have to wait.

    I'll be spending it with my Dad and one of my brothers. Will be strange not to see my other brother, or my Mum afterwards like I usually do, but will be nice to see at least some of the family.

    I hope you have a great time at your brother's @csno01! I'm sure that'll be fun. Will you just be relaxing, or is it a busy day with lots of things planned?

    How about a selection box? I had Dogs when I was growing up and the one broke into hers before my Mum had wrapped it. All she took were the chocolates lol.

    You do of course know that the chocolate that humans eat can be deadly to dogs?

    They have to have special doggy chocs.
