Monday Summary

Well, its only 5 days to Christmas. Can you believe it? Maybe its just me but it feels like its come around extraordinarily fast this year. I think think like for every one else in the country this week as been a hellish one. With the UK coming to a standstill thanks to the deadly ice and snow everywhere, tensions have been high, and the last minute Christmas Panic is setting in! So here's what's been going on this week!

1. I got 3 out of the 5 items on my Christmas list this weekend! How lucky am I? I'm not allowed them of course until Christmas Day so they are wrapped up underneath the tree, ready for Christmas Day.

2. This week was a good week for food and cooking. I had the most delicious meal of Gammon, egg, and chips. One of my favourites that I don't have often. It was so so good. Then yesterday Adam and I baked cupcakes for the first time ever! I had a little bit of a mishap with the food colouring though and ended up ruining my nails in the process, which wasn't that great!


3. This week saw an epic effort on the fitness front. As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I jogged for 10 minutes straight which I havn't done for at least 18 months. It was a pretty special moment. A combination of determination and a wicked playlist on the ipod got me through it.

4. This week saw my monthly meet up with my amazing friends Gemma and Nicola. You know the drill, 3 friends, the Trafford Centre, shopping, chatting, eating, perfect. I look forward to this occasion every single month. It doesn't matter if we're all broke, we still make the effort to meet up and go for some food. This time saw me drive myself to Manchester for the first time ever. Which was also a pretty big achievement for me! I no longer have to rely on Adam to take me, which is a good thing and a bad thing. Considering now I can just take myself whenever means I'm more inclined to spend lots of pennies! We exchanged presents and I got some lovely goodies from them both. From Gemma I got a lovely little watch ring from Topshop and a cute cupcake hand cream. From Nicola I got a gorgeous pair of skull earrings from Butler and Wilson. It was such a lovely day as always, lots of laughter and storytelling was had, and I can't wait until next months meet up!

5. Three to follow: WhereDidUGetThat, Ashley Ring My Bell (The girl who played Bambi in Secret Diary of a Call Girl), The Haute Pursuit


  1. I love those earrings! I've been on the lookout fop a ring like that.

  2. Lovely snowy photos :) I just think it's so so pretty - just a shame us English can't handle it, and it time stops!
    The cakes look great too, well done- yummy yummy. How lucky are you with the pressies, I would be super excited about getting them! EEE, bet you can't wait.
    Gorgeous photo of you Gemma & Nicola

  3. Oh I love nothing better than meeting up with good friends for a natter and some shopping! :) Those earrings are just lovely! xo

  4. Oh a watch ring, I was thinking of getting my sister one for Christmas!

  5. Wow, your cupcakes look really professional!
    (and tasty!)

    sounds like you had a fab day, I think girly shopping/natter/lunch date is high on every girls list of loves, at least, it is on mine!
