This Christmas morning when Big Boy woke up at Five, I didn't expect to spend the next two hours in his room watching cartoons, slowly counting the gifts in his Stocking and putting together Lego creations. But I did.
This Christmas morning when I poked the Turkey to determine if it was defrosted or not I didn't expect it to fizz under my finger, I didn't expect it to smell like a backed up sewer. But it did.
This Christmas morning I didn't expect the family to take it well, when I announced that we weren't going to be eating Turkey for Christmas Dinner as it had gone bad whilst defrosting. But they did.
This Christmas morning didn't turn out like I expected.
It was better.
