Every Christmas growing up I was surrounded by family. Normally many grandparents, my parents, between 3 and 5 sets of aunts and uncles, many cousins, a few cats and one dog.
Now being an adult the cousins are grown, family moved away the Christmases are a lot smaller but we get to enjoy more food and drink especially with me getting to create more for the dinner table at my favourite time of year.
I loved the big family dinners and all the funny stories that have come up because of so many people in one house. The breaking ovens, the silly puddings which were in fashion that year, who cried, who laughed and who accidentally threw the gravy down themselves.
One of my favourite Christmas memories of being a child is me with all my cousins piling in to the living room and on to the sofa to watch Christmas specials on TV after the big feast.
Can you imagine one DFS sofa, 10 children all on high on loads of food and super sugar from all the puddings we had. It was never comfortable, always annoying with so many boys fighting and us piled high to fit on. Although it was uncomfortable, with us all ending up with bruises and even a bite mark once they are the memories I now love from Christmas.
I love to think about me and my cousins all fighting for the best position on the sofa to watch Dr Who or whatever the big TV show or film was at Christmas. It reminds me of a time of togetherness, silliness but above all family.
What uncomfortable Christmas yet fun memories do you have?
