I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and Boxing Day? And my thoughts go out to those affected by the terrible flooding too. We’ve been very lucky here in Norfolk, the weather has been quite mild over Christmas, but it’s been insanely windy over the last couple of days with Storm Frank starting to move in. I really hope things start to calm down across the country soon.
We’re now in that weird place between Christmas and new year, where it’s not Christmas any more, but things definitely aren’t back to normal yet. The tree is still up, most of us are still off work, except for those poor people that work in retail – I feel for you guys at this time of year, and my good self too as I work in social media. I do have a few days booked off at the beginning of January though so I can get a much needed break.
I came across this on Facebook earlier from the hilarious blog, that I think perfectly sums up this time for most of us. I’ve got to the point now where I’m actually looking forward to dieting, and I’ll have a post all about this in the next couple of days.
So, I hope Father Christmas treated you well this year? I received some lovely gifts including a bottle of Baileys, a massive bar of Lindt chocolate, fancy perfume and a shirt, and Fred has completely overrun the house with his new toys. This year it’s been all about Super Heroes, Lego and Star Wars. I spent the whole of Christmas Day afternoon putting Fred’s new lego sets together (like nearly 5 hours) only to have him instantly destroy them. Bless my little angel…
Also, I may have treated myself to this gorgeous East West black shopper bag by Sophie Hulme, a few weeks before Christmas, as a little Crimbo present to myself. It was insanely cheap in the sale from Young British Designers, so I just couldn’t resist!
And I also picked up this cute little guy, who I’m calling Hugo 🙂
In other news, I’ve seen quite a few Twitter polls spring up recently, so I thought I’d hold my own the other day, to find out what sort of posts you guys would like to see on the blog. I was actually quite surprised with the results –
What would you like to see more of on my blog in 2016?
