* Just so you know, my internet is being appalling at the moment, so if any Blogmas posts go up late, it’s probably because I CAN’T LOAD THE BLOODY PHOTOS. *
I’ve told you before and I’ll tell you again: Daily Blog posts are my absolute FAVOURITE to read. And now that I’m trying my hand at December Daily – which I’ve found has made me consciously plan to do Festive things JUST so I have something to scrapbook about – it was kind of inevitable that I’d have another go at blogging my very own day.
I ACTUALLY HAD A LIE IN! (Believe me, that is unheard of!) We celebrated by eating our Advent calendar chocolates in bed. It was a pretty good way to kick off the weekend, actually!
We went Christmas shopping (more on that later…) and stopped off at Marks and Spencer’s for a salted caramel latte (me) and a luxury hot chocolate (him). Aren’t those teeny tiny shortbread Christmas trees the cutest things EVER???
We came back home and got on with chores… Oh the joys of homeownership!! On a slightly more interesting not PB cooked his Christmas puddings and they made the house smell of old tea bags. NOT A FAN.
We finished decorating our Christmas tree! I’d started it Friday night but got bored, so PB took over.
The boy cooked lunch; I finished re-reading Throne of Glass. Then I spent most of the afternoon painting the spare room. Fun fun fun!
FINALLY finished painting the first layer, I decided to reward myself with a spot of blogging. These Blogmas posts don’t write themselves, you know!
I made a sort-of gingerbread-shortbread thing. I don’t know what it is, but it’s my favourite biscuit EVER (maybe I’ll share the recipe soon?).
Started working on my December Daily scrapbook… all of my photos needed to be edited to 4×4/2×2, which took hours. At least I made the front cover look pretty though!!
Rewarded myself with a bath, a glass of prosecco and Crown of Midnight. Until PB came home five minutes later, that is!
What did you do at the weekend? Get up to anything festive? And what are you planning to do this weekend – I’m already running out of ideas!!
