Christmas in Suffolk

We are finally back in London, after almost a week away at my in-laws. They have a lovely house near the Suffolk coast, where Mr Techno grew up. Ever since we got married, Mr Techno and I have alternated which family we spend Christmas with. This year was his family’s turn.

We had a full house for the Christmas break, with the three of us, Mr Techno’s parents, his younger brother, and his older sister with her husband and daughter, who is just a few weeks younger than Tom. We were then joined for Christmas itself by his aunt and uncle, grandmother and two cousins.

One of the lovely things about a big family Christmas in the countryside is that there is always someone wanting to go for a walk, or to take the toddlers to the playground. With no work and no responsibility for the cooking, Mr Techno and I were able to make the most of the outdoors, especially as the weather was unseasonably mild.

We explored the Suffolk coast, taking Tom on his first ever trip to the sea.

And his second trip too…

We explored the garden.

And the playground.

Of course, we did spend most of Christmas day itself indoors. There were presents to be unwrapped.

And too much food to eat.

And family to bond with.

Unfortunately, the break was slightly ruined by an onslaught of some kind of tummy virus, which ran through the whole family like wildfire. Fortunately, though both toddlers had it, neither were too sick. Several of the adults were laid low for several days.

Still, illness aside we had a lovely time. I hope you all did too!

  1. It looks like you all had a fab holiday, I bet it was fab to take Tom to the beach and explore, even if the weather wasn’t too friendly. It’s a shame that everyone managed to get the tummy bug, I hope you’re all better now. I love the photo of Tom looking through the fence. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.
