Boxing Day Dip in the Sea Brrrrr!!!

December 26, 2010

I wish i could say that it was I that ran into the sea for a dip today but i am far too much of a wimp to even contemplate going into the sea, even at the height of a British Summer!! But there are a number of (*crazy*) individuals in the South West of England that ran into the freezing cold sea today to raise money for charity – we went along to watch but did not expect the crowds, we only got to see the swimmers once they were out of the water. The temperature outside was recorded as –4C!!!

It was also the first time in a very long time that the snow has fallen at the seaside and stayed there, normally the salt in the sea melts the snow before it can settle…Picture 012

It certainly cleared the cobwebs walking in the cool, sea air.

We then ventured over to Ollie’s aunt and uncles house for a buffet – ARGHHH!! More food but i love boxing day food – we had bubble and squeak. If you do not know what this is, you have missed out – big time!!  You take all the left over veggies from xmas day and mash them together, you sprinkle the mashed up veg with cheese and bake in the oven until golden brown – Delicious!

I also got to watch Ollie’s cousins play on their dance wii game, it felt like quite a work out i can tell you!

They also had a new shooting game, so i have been shot more times than i can remember today!! Here is the big child himself, my husband Ollie playing;

And this has to be my favourite shot of the day…as i was taking a photo of Ricky he shot the gun at me, which just missed the camera!!! Can you see the orange bullet coming towards me?? He loves me really!

I love meeting up with family at xmas, i will be having xmas day #2 on the 28th Dec so can not wait to blog about that and i am also seeing my sister, brother-in-law, nieces and nephews on new years eve.

Xmas day #1 was a low key event with the in-laws at our house, as we are having proper xmas day on the 28th when Ollies brother and wife will be coming down from Scotland, but here is a photo of us eating our rather scrummy xmas dinner yesterday;
