A Year Gone By.....

The great thing about blogging, other than all the amazing people you get to meet, has to be the fact that you can look back over the year and relive what you did and what you wore.

I was amazed not only by how many photos I have in jeans but also in flat shoes!

And I truly do not possess that many pairs of flat shoes.

So 2013 will see the return of the heel and the return of the figure.

I have piled the weight on this year. After a good start the beginning of 2012, it all seemed to fall by the wayside.













A few fashion faux pas but nothing I am too ashamed of thankfully.

Heres to a fabulous (heeled) 2013.

And here's what I will be finishing it in.

(apologies for the bad photos, the camera didn't like the twinkling lights!)

Happy new year all.

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly....

Now this week has gone very quickly.

But I have to admit that it has been a good one.

The Good
Christmas with the family

Exactly what Christmas is all about to me.
Giving thanks for whats around you and for all that you love.

A Christmas day phone call from my mom

It was lovely to at least hear from her even if I couldn't see her.

A Christmas day phone call from Mickey Mouse

We were greeted with a phone call from Mickey wishing us all a merry Christmas courtesy of hubby.

Receiving so very thoughtful gifts

We were very thankful for all we received as  a lot of thought had gone into choosing each gift.

As for:

The Bad


The Ugly

Missing mom

Is the only thing to fall into either category.

I do hope you have had a good week.

Blanket Time......

So the weather outside is frightful!

(is it wrong I have to sing that sentence?)

Well it is horrid and wet outside and considering that I have to work today, be it  from home I at least thought I really ought to make an effort but also wanted to be snug.

So out came the trusty blanket skirt.

It has done me well over the years and still as warm as ever.

And add a pair of sparkle shoes, as you do, and everything seems so much nicer in the world.

Christmas Fun And Frolics.....

Good grief has Christmas really passed us by?
The only log fire we can have!

Home made croissants, home made bread for bacon sandwiches 

And of course bucks fizz is a must!

I must admit we had a fantastic time, lots of food (& not a bit has been wasted might I add!) plenty of drink (but not too much) and gifts galore.
Santa found us ok.

I do hope you all had an amazing one too and catching up with your blogs it certainly seems that way.

We received practical gifts this year, which were very gratefully received an we even gave a few too.

Kassie & her boyfriend shall be having both a fridge freezer and a washer drier on completion of their move. Kassie also had a binder for her uni work and a drawing tablet to connect to her laptop again a item she needs for her uni work. 

Ashleigh had a new Mac book. Her old pc has given up the ghost and she needs one to complete her A level work and revision, so again this seemed the perfect gift.

Andy received books, which he loves and a new pair of rigger boots to replace the pair that were stolen from the allotment as well as money.

And I received a new memory card for my camera, a huge map to plan our travels on, clothes, pjs and lots of money. 

Santa did well I think.
