Well the Christmas decorations are out and scattered around the house, so we are getting there. Not sure much will actually stay on the tree this year with our little ones around. I’m doing quite well with my Christmas shopping too, not too many more presents to get.
So here are my 5 fab things this week:
Elf on the Shelf
This is the first year of having our elf, Elfie, in the house and we are gradually getting a bit more daring as to what she gets up to. At first she just started in high up places out of the reach of the little ones, then she started playing with the children’s toys (which Charley wasn’t too impressed with). We’re looking forward to seeing what else we can get her doing next week!
Light switch on at Wisley
We had another day out at Wisley this week. We just went for some lunch and a wander about but ended up staying to see the Christmas lights being switched on by Mary Berry. The lights around the garden are amazing, absolutely massive but so impressive.
Christmas tree is up!
We normally end up with a real short fat Christmas tree as we live in a cottage with fairly low beamed ceilings. This year though as Bodhi is a little destructive we decided to get our artificial tree out of the loft just in case it gets pulled about and knocked over. It was last used in my house though with normal ceiling height so we’ve ended up only using half the tree, so it’s still a bit short looking! Its only half decorated as well as the children keep taking the baubles off! Below is a close up shot of the tree by Charley.
I’m not very good at sticking with the same hair style (colour or length) for too long and have often ended up going short and blond. I’ve been dark and growing it for over a year now but I’m getting a bit bored of my hair again so when I went to the hairdressers at the weekend I asked to be a bit lighter. I love the feeling of going into the hairdressers, having lots chopped off or getting a new colour done and walking out feeling refreshed!
Just over a year ago I had short blond hair and I really liked it (though most people tell me they like my hair dark) but it was so expensive to keep getting it coloured and cut so often. I’m hoping going a bit lighter will satisfy my craving for a different look. (August 2014 – I loved it blonde and mad!)
Lazy Sunday lay-in
Charley came in just before 7am and was happy to lay in our bed reading and playing CBeebies on the iPad, whilst we dozed for an hour before Bodhi woke up at 8am! Happy Days!
Hows your week been?
