Merry Christmas | Blogmas Day 25


December has gone by in such a flash! I didn't think I would be able to finish Blogmas and I am so proud that I have done it. It is bloody hard work so hats off to everyone that has done it. 

I hope everyone is having the most amazing Christmas Day. However you choose to spend it, I hope it is perfect in every way. 

For my entire life Christmas has always been spent not just celebrating Christmas, but my brother's birthday and this is the first year without him. Steve, wherever you are I hope you are celebrating and can see how much you are loved and missed every day. 

I will be back in a few days with another post. 'Til then, have fun, be kind to yourself and make it count :)

Reflection | Blogmas Day 24

It's Christmas Eve! Let the celebrations begin.

For me, this year has been a weird one. It has been the best and the worst year of my life so far and as Christmas approaches I find myself looking back on a whirlwind of a year...

Christmas Movies 2.0 | Blogmas Day 23

Two more posts to go! I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I am so pleased I have managed to get through and complete Blogmas. Although I made the decision to do it in the last week of November, and without so much preparation it has been hard work, it has also been so worth it! I will be putting in a lot more preparation next year though!

Unfortunately at the time of writing this my little girl is really poorly, so I'm afraid it's another re-hashed post from a few Christmases back as I don't have much time. This time I'm offering my favourite Christmas films and feature lengths, and it hasn't changed from 2014 so that's a relief - phew!!

Would You Rather... Christmas Edition | Blogmas Day 22

Loubee Lou Blogs tagged me into the 'Would You Rather... Christmas Edition' tag and so I thought it would be good to incorporate it into my Blogmas! Thank you Louisa for the tag! Here are my answers:

Eat Brussel sprouts or cauliflower cheese?

That is a tough one as I'm not keen on either of them. I think I slightly prefer cauliflower though so I'll opt for that one.

Have twinkling lights or still lights?

Twinkling lights on my tree definitely. However, I would prefer them still to the raving flashing setting. Who actually uses that setting?

The Christmas Tag 2.0 | Blogmas Day 21

I just cannot believe there are only 4 more posts left. I also cannot believe I have managed to get a post out at 10am each day (barring one day where it was evening - oops!)

In November 2014 I published my second ever post on this blog and it was a Christmas Tag. I don't have much time at the moment as my baby is a poorly girl (as I draft & schedule) and so for today's post I am going to "upcycle" my answers from 3 years ago :)
