{I can’t remember who took this…was it you?}

How was your Christmas?

I hope your bellies are full, your hearts are happy and your toes are warm. Christmas is like one big magnifying glass and I am finding myself taking stock, reflecting and setting my sights on what the next year will bring…or rather what I will bring to it. I’ll be sure to write a list of “resolutions” for the year to come as well as some reflections on the year that was.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my first Christmas Post Swap…if you have yet to receive a gift in the post give it another few days (the weather and the season is making the post super slow at the moment) and then let me know if you’re still present-less. Also if you have been unable to post your presents for whatever reason (or posted it later than you planned) do let me know too.

Keep your eyes peeled for some Christmassy photographs coming here soon.




My favourite thing so far this Christmas?

Cheese and crackers. 

By the fire. 


P.S I got an iPhone and I LOVE it but I will try to keep them instagrams to a minimum round these parts.

(a little sneaky preview of a freelance job I'm working on...shhhh)

I haven't been here much this week, and I won't be for the next while either because, well, you know, it's Christmas! And we're having 15 people to dinner! And there's so much to do!

Merry Christmas,

Friday To Do

Now that I'm offfficially on my Christmas Holidays the countdown can begin!

We're having 15 people to dinner on Christmas day; five of my uncles, two aunts, my granny and cousins plus my brothers, myself and my mum. There's never been this many people in our house for Christmas so it's going to be crazy!

(So basically this week I'm going to be my mum's PA.)

I also have yet to finish Richard's present or get one for either of my parents. Eep. 

Then I get to wrap them all and put them under the-so far nonexistant- Christmas tree! Woo! 

Oh and then there's Christmas Eve drinks and giving my best friend her present and making chocolates for all my family and labels for our chutney jars and setting the table and cleaning the house and getting a little freelancer done before the 20th and hanging the stockings and all of that other LOVELY stuff. 

Yum. Can't. Wait. Love.

P.S I got my bike printed onto gift tags and sold them at the fair, they sold like crazy and I only wished I'd printed more. There's always next year*
