Christmas spirit..

Here is a few pictures of how we decorate our Christmas tree..my mum loves the traditional looking trees with rich colours and warm lights.
We do the lights first and then commence with the layering of ornaments! They range from berrys, cinnammon sticks, gingham bows, robins, bells, birds even birds nests! and lots more.
I love trees to be full, I personally can't stand trees with five ornaments on it..whats the point?! Also one of my favourite things to do this time of year is visit garden centres and look at all the beautiful trees! Plus I always buy one new ornament to hang on the tree..it's my little tradition..Do any of you have Christmas traditions?

Christmas kitchen

I wanted to share what Christmas looks like in my house..My kitchen is decorated very 'country/shabby' so these purple lights look stunning against the cream walls and wooden beams. They have about 20 different settings..flashing/twinkling/fading etc. We attached purple glitter snowflakes and baul balls and one purple bird..who is so cute. At night it looks like a magical winter wonderland kitchen..if I had it my way I'd keep them up all year!

Gorgeous christmas decorations...

Yesterday I popped into Homebase and all there Christmas decorations were on sale already!
The decorations I chose below were about £4.99 each and were all reduced to 49p!!! The pictures do not do them justice, they are so pretty. I took two pictures of the reindear, one with flash, one without to try and capture how sparkly it is..it looks like diamonds!

Dear Santa...

I've been wishing for a laptop for a while now but sadly cannot afford one right now :(
I've seen some nice ones out there but this one below is sooo pretty!
I found it on Kim Kardashian's blog..(wish I had her bank account)! I hate to think how much this one would cost!
I would be able to update my blog on a regular basis as we share one computer in my house which is a pain...if only Santa knew how much of a good girl I've been this year! Oh well, I'll just have to stare at the picture of it instead!

Im sooo ill...

Hi guys, So as you've probably guessed..I'm ill! I've caught a cold from somewhere or someone.
I feel terrible :( Last night was the worst night so far, the cold came out on Tuesday morning.
I didn't sleep a wink last night, my eyes feel like they are going to explode! I've got all the classic horrible symptoms..runny nose, sinus, aches, sore throat and no energy...seriously..I look like a zombie right now.
I've been drinking Beechams cold and flu hot berry drink and that hasn't really done anything! and I'm taking Tunes to ease my throat..I'm going to have to drag myself out of my bed and head to Tesco (I hope I don't bump into anyone)! to buy some Night Nurse as my last resort, I hope this works!
I had so many plans this week that I've had to cancel and so much work to do and I'm so angry that I can't do any of it.
Do any of you have any cold curing remedies for me to try? I'm willing to try anything!!!
