24/12 – Christmas Eve


Well I think Munch has given me his cough for Christmas as I seemed to be coughing all night, in the end I went into the spare room to save keeping hubby awake as he was planning to go into work for a for a few hours in the morning.

Munch got up to go to the loo at 8am, he saw me in the spare room but just went to back to bed after putting all the lights on!!!! I got up shortly afterwards and went in to talk to him, he wanted to get the ‘prawn crackers’ as he calls the Christmas Crackers, when I asked why, he wanted to get them ready for our Christmas dinner, but we are not having it today say’s I, oh yes say’s Munch.

We got up and came downstairs, daddy was going to work for a few hour’s in the morning then we were going to meet him later on, Munch was hyper, he was running around not listening to anything, several times he was asked to slow down and concentrate, he ran and jumped onto me as I was holding a cup of hot coffee, he was sent to step, as soon as he was off the step, he started shouting at me as soon as his time was up saying I had waisted his time, so straight back to the step. I did my usual, and ignored anything he was doing while on he step, but I really wanted to laugh because ‘I wish it coud be Christmas every day’ came on the radio and he was singing away on his step.

The second session on the step seemed to calm him down and the rest of the morning went by quietly. We watched a bit of TV and played with his Lego,  granny and cousin phoned so Munch spent sometime talking to them, then it was time to get ready for our Christmas Eve outing.

We got the bus to our local Station, then took the train to Marble Arch where we met Daddy and we had a lovely afternoon at Winterwonderand in Hyde Park. We started by having a look around the lovely German Christmas Market, before moving on to the fun part with all the ride’s. We purchased some tickets as that is how you had to pay for the rides you went on, the 1st one Munch wanted to go on was this great looking pirate  Ride, can’t tell you what it was like as when we got through the front door Munch decided that he was scared and did not want to do it, we were lucky as they gave us our tickets back, this went on for a few rides, wanting to go on then when getting to them not wanting to. This was what he was like every time we went to one of the theme parks over the summer, I would have to make him get on something, and once he had done one ride, he would be fine, so that’s what we did, made him go on a reindeer ride and then there was no stopping him, we went on a few more, it got dark so was very pretty and was starting to get really busy and we were all getting very cold so decided to call it a day at 5pm.

We headed back to daddy’s taxi, and daddy took us for a drive round London to look at the lights. We went and had dinner at Planet Hollywoods because there was somewhere to park the taxi and had a very ok dinner, nothing special. Munch was very good whilst there, even when his Pizza came and it wasn’t very nice.

On the way home both me and Munch had a bit of a snooze in the back of the taxi. Indoor’s Munch watched TV for a while before supper, then we got a palate and put some carrots for Rudolph and co., a mince-pie for Santa and a glass of milk. We all sat around the table while Munch had supper and had our Christmas Eve Snowball, he was very pleased to be allowed to have one, even though it only had a couple of teaspoon’s of Advocaat in it.

So up to bed, new Christmas Eve PJ’s so he looked smart for Santa, stocking laid out at the end of Munch’s bed, he asked to read his Feelings book, so we did that Before I read him Twas the Night Before Christmas, then huge hug’s and kisses before sleep time, that was at 8.30pm, by 10pm he was still calling down, saying he couldn’t sleep and then saying we were making him not get any presents we were not going to bed so Santa coud come. During the day periodically we had been tracking Santa, so I told him I had looked on the tracker and Santa was still in Poland and had several other country’s to visit first so we had hours, that seemed to calm him and we never heard another peep out of him.
