52 Weeks of Happy (13/52)

Psst... just a quick sneaky blog whilst all is quiet. It's lovely to be back with a festive edition of 52 Weeks of Happy and a little glimpse of our Christmas so far. I'll be back in a few days, when we're done merry making, with a full festive report. Hope all's well with you and hello to all of you who are reading here for the first time.

My four simple happy moments of the week.

♥ Boys baking - hubs and youngest son making Mary Berry's chocolate Yule log together. Mmm...

♥ Being given this simply beautiful sack of presents from hubs. Just a few carefully selected gifts: new skirt, underwear, chocs and stationery.
♥ The sense of occasion that is blinis and Prosecco (pre-Christmas dinner).
♥ Time to enjoy the first Christmas in our new home. A year ago our house was on the market and our future home unknown. We feel so lucky to have sold, moved and downsized to a home that we like in 2012. It was worth it.


  1. I love the feeling of a first Christmas in a new home. :)
