Christmas has rapidly snuck upon us, I sure am going to relish the time I have to enjoy the festivities. I really do wish I had had more time to put together more thoughtful and decorative cards, parcels and posts, but time has been precious, especially over the past few weeks. Blogging has been a little bit haphazard for the above reason, but please know I’m still here. And will always find my way back.
This year it has been so lovely receiving so many cards from such lovely bloggers and friends. I really do appreciate the gesture of a card and sure do love filling my fireplace with them. I’m a total letter/card junkie so it’s been great receiving so much post lately!
It’s been quite hectic at home, we are without a tree this year, which makes me a little sad- but space wise it’s a nightmare (You know all those books I keep buying, the bookshelf that homes them unfortunately took the place of our tree). Instead I very naughtily invested in the larger version of my Ikea goat, he sure is a charmer!
Presentwise, I am just about sorted, admittedly the large majority of it was done online, I avoid the shops at this time of year the most. I am hopeless at crowds and loathe last minute shopping. As lazy as online shopping gets, I do think it’s easier to pinpoint exactly what you are looking for.
I was so overjoyed to receive my Second-hand Secret Santa parcel! I had anxiously been awaiting its arrival, and cannot wait to see what I have been kindly gifted. Ellie has always been such a fond blogger, and she always manages to engage with her readers so well, lots of love and admiration for this lady.
My Royal Doulton plate my mum bought me last Christmas has come out, and I am totally smitten. It makes for the perfect nostalgic thrill. The Noel sign cost one pound in this year’s January sales, I’d actually forgotten I’d bought it, so it was quite a pleasant surprise.
Happy Holidays All. Love and happiness this Christmas time.
