Christmas 2012

Another year another christmas holiday!

Since I haven’t blogged in almost 10 months (seriously a bad blogger….) I figured now would be a good time to start again with it being a new year.

Christmas is always spent at home, surrounded by family and friends. I’ve just hit the big 2-5 which means being a ‘grown up’ in the real word, although Santa still knows how to spoil me 🙂

I got a great selection of books (which ill post about later!), shoes, bits and pieces and my favourite thing…a new camera! So armed with my new camera expect a lot of new photo posts!

My second favourite things…..Lego stormtrooper alarm clock!

Anyway I hope you all had a lovely christmas holiday and I shall return soon with new posts and some better photos!














Fictional Bucket List (13-18)

Week three of my fictional bucket list series! Although I would love to put together an actual bucket list, its a lot more fun putting together a list of things i’m never actually going to do (Unless I do get the chance to swim with Dory….).

13. Stop a train with the Railway Children

This was a classic film growing up. It makes my bucket list  for two reasons – 1, it is an iconic film moment and 2, how great would it be to flag down a train in these fabulous outfits!


14. Sing carols with the Muppets

If you’ve read my blog before you will probably know that I love the muppets!! This film taught me more about being kind to people and the meaning of christmas than others did. Even now, if one of the songs comes on my iPod I let it play and sing along. I can watch this film at any point of the year not just at christmas! So I would love to sing carols with these guys!

15. Have tea with the mad hatter

This would be so amazingly strange it has to be on my bucket list somewhere! I imagine fancy cup cakes and fine china as well as perfectly brewed tea.

16. Let Tom draw the city on my arm

I posted about this film a couple of weeks ago, one of the most tender parts of the film. Im lucky that I have someone special to draw on in my life. The whole setting of this scene, the bench and of course the outfits makes me what to be apart of this!


17. Be their guest!

Would there be any better dining experience than being greeted by singing tea pots, plates and utensils?! Nope there is not. I would LOVE to be their guest!

18. Hang out with the wild things for a day.

I want to cuddle them, they look like they would give good cuddles! I love this book and love the film even more! Hanging  with the wild things make the list as everyone needs to play outside once in a while and have some make believe fun. Using your imagination.


Those were my factional bucket list entries for this week! What would be on your fictional bucket list? Do you have a fictional bucket list?!

Here comes winter

I love winter. I have no shame enjoying the cold! Being snuggled in knits, roaring fires, lots of layers and of course SNOW!

Living in the north of England it gets pretty cold (although not compared to the arctic!) so i’m getting in a good routine wrapping myself up. When I first moved up here i dont think i even owned a warm winter coat (bad idea at the time). I soon learnt when it hit -10, flooding and severe snow storms it would be a wise move to invest in one. Thanks to good ol santa I wasnt cold for much longer.
