A lazy, post-Christmas day

Hello Love-Catters, I'm writing to you today from the lazy day that my family enjoys on Boxing Day (the day after Christmas). Around here today it's all about three things:

Books are always a popular gift in my family and usually everyone has at least one to fill in their day after the Christmas festivities are done. I've got a few to choose from, but I think the one I'm going to open first is "In the Pleasure Groove: Love Death and Duran Duran". It's by John Taylor, the bass player from Duran Duran and as I've already shared previously, I'm a bit of an 80s music tragic -- a fact my family knows well. I can't wait to read the inside story of some of my music heroes -- although I'm a little apprehensive about learning some things I might prefer to not have known!

Of course we had a massive feast yesterday. And as per usual, a  massive feast means a large amount of leftovers. So despite the fact that I went to bed last night vowing that I was never going to eat another thing ever, today I'll be getting stuck into all the remaining ham, turkey, roast potatoes and much more, along with everyone else...

All that food tends to result in one thing: a need to nap. There's at least one nanna nap in my future -- possibly two. :)

I hope all of you are looking forward to similar lazy days filled with fun and food and family!


  1. You know, come to think of it, I didn't receive a single book this year for Xmas!
    Your Duran Duran read should be a good one, Em. 80's music is the best =)

  2. Oh, yes, Emmie, you just described my Boxing Day to perfection too. It was wonderful to curl up with my brand new Kindle whilst nibbling fruitcake and listening to the countdown of the top 400 songs of the 80s on the TV.

    I love the cruisie-ness of the time between Christmas and New Year. I hope everyone has been having a wonderful time. :-)

  3. Emmie, I loved Duran Duran when I was a teen!

    The other Boxing Day tradition that happens at my house and the houses of our family is the cricket Boxing Day Test. The most important cricket day of the year, so it's either on radio or TV for the day. :)

  4. Hi Emmie! I definitely got right into 'reading' for Boxing day and loved every minute of it! slightly tempted to do the "sales" but in the end I stayed curled up in a comfy chair with my book!

    I hope your musical idols don't have too many awful skeletons to be exposed in your book!

  5. Boxing Day is the day my sister celebrates all things Christmas so we had a 2 hour drive in -25C. 15 adults and 10 kids ranging in age from 85 years old to less than a year old sat around getting full of turkey and all the trimmings. We had a great day. Today it's been very lazy, a bit of reading, a bit of snow shoveling and a bit of web browsing. Bliss.
