Out With The Old In With The New....

As usual Christmas was a fabulous time with the family.

Eating, drinking, laughing to out hearts content.

With the flu and the odd tummy pain thrown in for good measure.

And as we say farewell to 2016, which has been a challenging year, I also say welcome to 2017 ask all the joy that comes with it.

Happy New Year lovelies.

Charity Begins At Home...

Whilst that may well be true, it should most certainly be extended further too.
And this year I have made an effort to do just that.
From donating food to the local food bank,

Donating a few extra tins of pet food,

Sending off a few bras that no longer fit to charity,

As well as sending unwanted makeup and toiletries too.

And a few of my presents have been purchased from fair trade.

Of course you can also buy charity cards in many of the local supermarkets and charity shops.

Any help for charities is always gratefully received.
And not just a Christmas either.

Festive Nails, Red & Gold....

Nothing beats festive nails.
Not only does it give me a reason (not that I need one) to adorn them with beautiful red and gold. But they sparkle too.

And look how beautiful they look?
A massive shout out to the lovely Gemma for creating them for me.

They sure will finish off any christmas day outfit, don't you think?

Yeah, Its Christmas Jumper Day!....

Love them or hate them they are every where.
Christmas jumpers have defiantly grown in popularity over the past few years.
Wether its silly and tacky or neat and chic the high street has them all.
And today is the day to wear them whilst supporting charity too.

Save the Children

And whilst I am not at work and able to raise many for this great cause, I have made a direct donation instead. 

I have been wearing my christmas jumper with pride all day.
How about you?

Reasons I love Christmas ....

Hi my name is Trayci and I suffer for OCD...
Thats Obsessive Christmas Disorder to you and me!
What exactly is it that I love about christmas you ask? 
Well let me answer that question for you right now.

  1. Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree... Yes I love the whole decoration thing. From the beautifully (or mediocre in our case) decorated trees and making the whole house as festive as possible. And lets not forget the twinkly lights! Nothing nicer than sitting, hot chocolate in hand watching christmas tv with twinkly lights setting a magical christmas scene.

  2. Fala, la, la la, lala... Good old christmas carols, in fact christmas music in any form.  I mean who doesn't love a bit of Michael Buble after all?! Oh and Wham, Slade, Wizard, the list is endless.....

  3. Santa! Santa's coming, I know him, I know him!...  Christmas films, guaranteed to put a smile on anyones face. Be it Elf, Polar Express or one of the countless others. Each one gives you that warm festive feeling. The nightmare before christmas is by far our family favourite.

  4. Red and green should never be seen... Unless of course its christmas! I get to wear two of my favourite colours together and nobody bats an eyelid! Fan-bloody-tactic.

  5. Cold days, warm hearts... Even though I love warm weather, during December I like the fact that you layer up warm, wear scarves and hats and get to play in white crisp snow. (not that it stays that way for long of course)

  6. Eat, drink, be merry!... Whats not to love about festive food and drink? Other than the extra weight you may of course gain! Oops. I mean, you get mulled wine, christmas cake, christmas cookies, mince pies, gingerbread, turkey... Need I say more?

  7. Christmas jumpers... there's something about a christmas jumper that will alway bring a smile to my face. And as I looooove anything that sparkles they press all the right buttons for me.

  8. Tis better to give than to receive... Whilst many may hate the idea of Christmas shopping, for me finding that perfect gift is a fantastic thing. Nothing quite like seeing a surprised look on someones face as they open a gift they truly love.

  9. Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts... We are a traditional family and sit down every Sunday to a good old British roast. But christmas brings everyone around the table, with more family gatherings and more cheer than usual. It's sad really that it's the one time most people make the effort to see family.

  10. The reason for the season... Nothing beats midnight mass. From the cream filled hot chocolate we drink before it, carols sang outside and entering the church by candle light. What a magical way to celebrate the reason for Christmas. 

Merry Christmas all.

Hump day Christmas Style....

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

I'm not gonna lie, I have done sweet FA all day.
After waking up with painful back and stomach ache, swollen glands and generally feeling sick, no activity was to be on the cards today.
Luckily Andy was happy to watch bad tv and play his new Final Fantasy game, so no harm no fowl.
At least he had a chilled out day off, lol.
Here's hoping tomorrow will be better.
