So I would like to start by wishing everyone Seasons Greetings.
I have finally finished all my Christmas shopping which was no mean feat. I don't know how other people go through the process of buying gifts at Christmas but our family has a little rule about how much we spend. I have 'special limits' for my Parents and Brother and Sister then Me and my siblings all buy gifts together for Cousins and Aunt and Uncles with a limit of £10.00 (as they do for us). We usually go over because for some reason we can never find anything good for just £10. Anyway thank goodness my sister was here to help we did it all in 1 day and all on the internet middle of November. That however was the easy ones to do Finding something for my parents is a struggle they have everything they want (apparently!!) My brother never knows what he wants!!! and my sister causes an all together different problem... there is too much I could get her. Not to mention boyfriends, Girlfriends, best friends and New Babies!!! It's a minefield of money. Believe it or not my favorite part of Christmas is the gift giving it always has been just like in the John Lewis advert (love it).
Now I have to say I love to get gifts too (who doesn't) and these are a few things that I asked for this year.
*I love the shoes above are a bit of a fantasy wish and they are mega expensive and I know I will never be able to walk in them!*
Check out my Christmas tree very proud!
I make my Christmas cards every year too and these are what I went for this year.
And my pretty choice of Present wrapping this year Candy canes and handmade Pom poms!
During my blog break I have also been concentrating on trying to loose weight. I must admit apart from feeling fantastic in terms of how I was looking I really couldn't see much of a difference. I knew something was happening because my clothes felt like they fit better and I have found that I am wearing dresses (with leggings) a hell of a lot more. I decided to take a picture of myself in a couple of outfits to see how it looked because I don't trust the mirror! (does anyone else do that), and was quite happy with what I saw. Then later that week while looking through my photos on facebook I realized that I have changed and you can see the difference in me a couple of stone lighter. Can you...?
