What did you do on Boxing Day?

Post by heavensdaw » Thu Dec 25, 2008 11:24 pm

Does anyone actually 'box'?..........

I usually just do the same as Christmas Day.I.e. Chill out watching the box, play some games with the kids, eat a lot, drink a lot, been known to smoke a lot also, but basically take it totally easy! Maybe it should be called 'Off yer BOX day!'

I love holidays!

Going to go purchase some new bass strings...

Oh and other than that, I typically do the same thing every year. Go and purchase crap and use gift cards.

Basically wandered around.

Faffed around on my computer.
Played 'driveway cricket' with my boys.
Took 2 of my 3 sons Boxing day shopping.
Walked my dog on the beach while son No 2 used his metal detector to comb for lost treasure.
Drunk white wine (I am a Red man).
Watered my veggie garden.
Did a bit of house work.
you get the drift :)

Made christmas candy with the kids (marcipan, nougat and chocolate is the tradition here)
Naps ftw

Eated the fishes.
Cleaned up a little and put more stuff in boxes.
Went out and listened to some music.
Suit #1: I mean, have you got any insight as to why a bright boy like this would jeopardize the lives of millions?
Suit #2: No, sir, he says he does this sort of thing for fun.

Ate brekfast. Some sandwiches with hot sweet home made mustard. From my grand-pa in-law.

Rode my bike to town to see if any decent PS3 games were on xmas sale. Nope.

Did some patching for Max, Live & Lemur.

Took my daughter outside to ride her new bike (yup, christmas gift from me and my loving wife).

Did some chicken souvlaki (on the grill), tsatsiki & oven baked potatoes. Had a Danish christmas beer to go with it (Jacobssen Golden Naked Christmas Ale - a gift from my buddy).

Played Little Big Planet with my daughter.

Some more patching.

Put my daughter to bed. Read one of her christmas-gift-books. Fell asleep for a bit myself.

Spent some time with my wife. Took a bath.

Back to patching.

Posting stuff on the internet. Some music forum.

Played with my kids and my nephew.

Came home, put the kids to bed.

Watched a cheesy movie, missed the end cos my son was throwing up.

Red Wine.

Internets.
