As a moon waned to crescent


I am cheating a little with the above photo as it's actually from our family Christmas last year, but I have been on another module of my management course this week and this weekend I'm call (i.e. cannot leave the house) and I thought this was better than subjecting you to photos of me in my pajamas!

I have been feeling super Christmassy today as I have spent the whole day wrapping presents and making things to give to people for Christmas.  Currently on the list of handmade presents is (links where available).

I have also been furiously earmarking pages in Olive magazine and the Sainsbury's magazine of more things I want to cook and bake over the Christmas period, along with pinning more handmade present ideas! I am feeling like a bit of a domestic goddess at the moment (the candle wax all over the sideboard in the kitchen probably says otherwise).  Other reasons I'm feeling full of Christmas cheer are firstly that I've starting working my way through all the Christmas movies on BT Vision - Bad Santa, Deck the Halls and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation watched so far, any other ones I should put on the list? I'm thinking The Grinch next.  Also because (and I realise this makes me sound about 70) I bought a copy of the Christmas issue of the Radio Times today and I'm already excited to go through circling all the films and TV programmes I want to watch over Christmas! 

On a final note, I could not be more excited about going to the Xmas Blogger Meet in Bristol on Friday, I cannot wait to see all the ladies I met at the previous South West Blogger Meet along with meeting some more people I haven't before.  Can't believe I also get to finally meet my sister from another mister, Ayden, too, who is coming all the way from Scottishland to join the party! If you want to find out more you can click the link on my sidebar or read about it in Bee's post here.

Of course, no post is complete without a photo of Bodhi the puppy is it? I know that's all you all come here for anyway! :)

  11. Awwww the pup is so stupidly cute! I'm making the maltesers fudge you mentioned before, I know it'll be difficult to part with though so will be making a large batch. Definitely make sure you watch Elf, Home Alone 1 and 2 and The Santa Claus...they're my favourites anyway

    I've been circling things to watch over xmas in the "bumper tv issue" as well, it's good to be organised!

    We watched The Grinch last night and it's Elf tonight.
    Home Alone is my very favourite though, I'm "saving" it for xmas week!

    We're making paper decs today, I will try and post about them next week, super easy to make!

    Have a fab time at the bloggers meet, it sounds like it's going to be great :D xx

I love all of your homemade gift ideas (: I really wish I was going along to the SW Bloggers' Meet, I'm literally missing out on the festivities by a day as I'm heading home to the other side of the country! Hope you're well Rosie, feels like I haven't chatted to you in a while! xx

  20. Te he. One of my favourite things to do when I was little was to get the Radio Times and circle things I wanted to watch. Me and my sister used to fight over it :) Bodhi is so cute. Never get bored of seeing photos of him xx
