When you first took my hand on a cold Christmas Eve

IMG_5616 Good evening lovelies, I am currently listening to 'Fairytale of New York' so hence the title! This weekend we pust up the Christmas decorations. This has made me very excited as Christmas is my favourite time of year. I love baking mince pies, and just generally having the house decorated. I also got my advent calendar on the 2nd december, this took a special trip to Cheshire Oaks as all the local shops had sold out, but alas it is now hung up on my wall in all it's glory! 

We decorated the tree on Saturday evening, but this year we can't put any of our pretty glass baubles on it as Daisy ,one of my Cats, likes to eat them! Last year she managed to bite through one so we thought it best not to use them this year. We also had a bit of a disaster with the lights, the lights from last year had stopped working so we got some new ones from B&Q, but they didn't look very nice when we put them on the tree, they were all cold and glary looking (this is why in one photo the light's are white and in another coloured). So then we had to get some coloured ones but this was all they had left that were Cat proof, as they also like to bite through the lights. But at least we have a decorated tree! Oh and it has gaps in the branches because the cats also like to climb it and they have snapped!

I also just wanted to know, do you all like these types of posts where it's photographs mostly of things I have done/ places I have been, or posts more like I used to do about beauty buys and things? Personally I prefer these type of posts as the photography is the part I enjoy most.

  2. I enjoy the beauty posts, but I think life posts also make a blog. Because, beauty is quite a materialistic thing and we loose site of the real life of the person behind the blog :) Loving the decorations! My cats always attack my tree. Was she okay after biting the glass? :( xxxx
