Well, here it is, my last weekly round up of the year. And a year in which I’ve probably posted more weekly round ups than actual posts. Still, people seem to actually read them, so I guess that’s ok.
Now, this week there should have been a photo an hour for Christmas Day, but once I got past 1pm I ran out of exciting ways to take photos of me snuggling on the sofa with the Pugs while wearing pyjamas with Christmas Pugs on them, so I gave that up as a bad job and just decided to post tipsy Instagram stories instead.
While this is magically auto publishing, I will be at a morning Pilates class, and after that I plan to have a relaxing bath and spend the afternoon studying for my Personal Trainer exams, but before that happens, lets finish up the year having a look at the last week of it.
This week I…..
Put the Decorations Up
Traditionally I’m a “HEY IT’S DECEMBER! PUT THE DECORATIONS UP!” Kind of a gal, but with
It’s actually quite nice, like a peaceful bookend to a stressful month, with Egg Nog cream from Aldi.
Wore 2 Stupidly Festive Dresses
I mentioned earlier in the month that I had purchased 2 absurdly cheap Christmas dresses from Dresslily.
They, are, indeed, absurdly cheap, made from
On Christmas Day I wore the one with Reindeer on the skirt to the pub for a lunch time drink.
They are cheap and festive, just like me.
Saw Some Scary Snowmen
On Christmas Eve we met some friends in the pub for lunch. Then we were joined by this weirdly terrifying bunch.
Somehow the bloke in the Christmas suit makes them scarier, like he’s the wizard that is commanding this army of reanimated Snowmen while they take over the world.
Turns out they were just blokes on a pub crawl, not an invading force, but still.
Did Not Take a Photo an Hour
Ah, and then we have Christmas Day.
We took the Pugs for a walk, opened gifts, ate a delicious breakfast cooked by
I managed a photo an hour up till about 1pm. None of them were very good as I was too busy relaxing to be faffed with setting up photos and using my proper camera. So I gave up.
You might notice there is no table cloth on my Christmas table. I planned to use one, but couldn’t find it as it has mysteriously gone missing since last Christmas, which was obviously the last time I used a table cloth.
I tried to buy a cheap one from Poundland, but it was made of plastic and made the table look like I was preparing the room for a murder or something and needed to clean up quick, so we just went without. We’re too cool for tablecloths anyway.
This years gifts included some sparkly fitflops from my Mum and Dad, I wear them as slippers and my old ones were dying, and a huge box of chocolates from Mr LLL that hid a surprise in the lid. Next year I’m finally going to Harry Potter studios with some friends, which I couldn’t be much more excited about and have spent the last week planning my outfit. 3 months in advance is a long time to plan an outfit, even for me.
In less good news, I woke up on Boxing Day with a stinking cold and then proceeded to spend 2 days feeling sorry for myself, half heartedly working and napping on the sofa.
Woe is me.
Got a Groupon
Last, but by no means least, when I started to feel a bit more human on Friday night we decided to go out for our annual “Phew, December was stressful wasn’t it?” dinner.
We’re self employed, so don’t really get a Christmas party and with the run up to Christmas being so busy, it’s nice to take a breather and go out for dinner.
Never one to turn down a bargain, I managed to spot a Cafe Rouge Groupon voucher for 3 courses for 2 people for £23. So we decided to grab one and go there for the evening.
It was very quiet out for a Friday night, I think everyone is staying home and waiting for New
And that was another (festive) week in my life.
How was your week? And how was your Christmas?
