Blogmas Day 22 (aka Day 25): Happy Christmas from London!

I’m not really sure what’s happened to my counting skills but I must have missed a day or two somewhere because I’m not yet at Blogmas Day 25 and I should be because if anyone is reading this, then, well today is Christmas day! So Merry Christmas one and all! I hope you all have the […]

Blogmas 15: Decorating the family (Christmas) tree

My Mum works like a Trojan. She’s a nurse, you see. Her work just never seems to be done. Hence why she sadly hasn’t had time to put up the family Christmas tree. So this responsibility fell to me instead. She asked me to do it. And seeing as I’ve been trying so hard to […]

Blogmas Day 14: How to fill a stocking for a one year old for under £20

My littlest niece, turned one this October. So this year, Christmas will be a lot more exciting for her as she has more of a concept of presents. And although she’s often more excited about the wrapping and the packaging, rather than the actual present underneath or inside, I have a feeling that she’ll enjoy […]

Blogmas Day 12: Crazy Christmas Lights

Every year, a house in my hometown, goes a little bit crazy for Christmas. And each year, they seem to deck their exterior halls bigger and better than before. I dread to think what their electricity bill is at the end of this month. It must be through the roof – a little like the […]

Blogmas Day 11: A family trip to Lewes

This weekend, Oli and I went to Lewes with my parents for a Christmassy, family day. If you haven’t been to Lewes before than I strongly recommend that you do. It’s a cute little place, full of Antique shops, amazing coffee shops, a Castle, bookish stores a plenty and cobbled stones. It’s quaint and pretty […]

Blogmas Day 10: Knit one, purl one; happiest in knitwear.

This is a post about my love, love, love of wool. I can’t seem to shake the sound of knitting needles from my head at the moment. Because the truth is; I am happiest when in a jumper. And I’ve found a few gems this year in the old knit wear department. It’s no secret that […]

Blogmas Day 8: How to fill a stocking for a four year old for under £20

My Mum told me that this year I will not be getting a stocking. And I’ve had a stocking for the past 24 years, so this comes as a serious blow. I’m a little bit gutted. But I guess, now that I’m getting married, I am too much of an adult to wake up to […]

Blogmas Day 7: A Gingerbread house of sorts

Yesterday, was a particularly Christmassy one. It involved a lot of icing sugar, sweets, ginger, cinnamon and a whole heap of baking trays. It was sweet to say the least. I’ve always wanted to make a Gingerbread house but for one reason or another, I’ve never actually gotten around to it. And whenever I’ve suggested […]

Blogmas Day 5: Who needs a Christmas tree?

I really want a Christmas tree this year. Like really, really bad. But my bank balance won’t allow it. And even if we opt for a small artificial tree, that’s still money we could – and let’s face it, should – be spending on the wedding or the honeymoon or the fund for our future […]
