Today it is back to reality. A festive whirlwind that has ceased, the Christmas and New Year are over and it is a huge anti-climax. (And if you’re anything like me it left a huge mess.)
This isn’t a full blog post but I just wanted to wish each and every one of you a very Happy New Year. I hope whatever you are doing you are having a wonderful time.
I hope you have all enjoyed my posts over Blogmas – and the rest of the Christmas period. Thank you to all of you who took time to read, like and subscribe to my blog.
Sadly Sam’s at work tonight so I won’t be spending it with him and I am assuming Emily will be asleep but whatever I’m doing I will force myself to enjoy it because it is New Year’s Eve. Happy 2018!!
Christmass Eve this year wasn’t much different to any other.
Our Christmae Eve this year wasn’t much different to any other. Each year we have always got together for food, prepped all the veg for Christmas day and spent time as a family. The whole of Christmas Eve daytime is dedicated to last minute organisation, errands and cleaning the house.
This year we held this at my home, whereas previous years we have always been at my parents so that was a little different. And this year is the first year that I have opened ALL of my presents on Christmas Eve. Sam and I wanted to open our presents together and move them out of the way so Emily couldn’t get her hands on them.
Now we are sat watching some tv, trying to stay awake having a little drinky.
Such a short blog-post but it is Christmas Eve and you probably have as much enthusiasm for reading this as I did for writing it…so if you’ve got to this point I salute you.
I hope you all have an amazing Christmas x
When I told everyone that I would be using Tesco online groceries and having my Christmas food shop delivered, people thought I was crazy. Was I?
I love Q&A posts, firstly because I’m nosey and love to know more about people and secondly because they are pretty easy as far as blog content goes. So when Life As Mrs D tagged me in her post to complete it, I jumped at the chance. Without further ado lets begin. Continue reading “The Christmas Tag”
If you need any last minute gifts, food, drink or are just generally interested in what my favourites are this December then keep reading.
I’m not sure if this is cheating but I am determined to get up all the Blogmas posts, albeit late.
Yesterday I was far too preoccupied and ill to sit down and write any post.
Christmas desserts are a little over the top, dusted in far too much edible gold and contain an obscene amount of calories but Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without some of them.
I think as Christmas dinners go ours is pretty standard but I just thought I would share what we have on our Christmas dinner.
