So, here we are, December! β„β›„

Such a lovey time of the year, call me crazy but I always loved the hustle and bustle of December!

That feeling when you’ve queued in the shops on black Friday πŸ›, you trawled the internet for the best deal on cyber Monday πŸ’», when you can’t decide whether to treat yourself to a fresh christmas tree πŸŽ„ and then like every year – decide that you could actually spend that money on the food instead 🍽 and you get the artificial tree out of the loft. 
Next, you sit for an hour or more untangling the lights πŸ’‘ for the tree! 

Static shocks ⚑️whenever you touch anything after handling all the tinsel, that you eventually threw on your tree πŸŽ„

Trying not to get stressed 😠 when you end up sticking all your fingers together, as you bravely start wrapping the presents ready🎁 for Santa’s πŸŽ… elves to collect. 

You’ve made it this far with your sanity intact, keep it that way just a little longer!
Lets skip through any more dramas that may try to own you and fast forward to sitting with the family πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦, surrounded by all that wrapping paper and invisible sticky tape that got you so stressed 😑. Now it lies on the floor, torn and screwed up! You got your own back on it! You won that war! πŸ’ͺ
Laughter and love πŸ’— all around you as you sit at the table with your loved ones, a glass of your favourite beverage in your hand 🍷 and the bottle 🍾 at your side! Take a breath and feel proud! πŸ‘Œ
Enjoy this time, don’t let the madness of this month ruin the best time that is still to come!
Happy December everyone!

Family weekend of quilt free fun!

What an amazing weekend! 

We ate what we wanted, drank what we wanted, took selfies with no make up on, laughed so much we might have pee’d a little and just basically had a flipping incredible time!

I don’t feel guilty about it, neither am I going to punish myself by not eating or exercising until I’ve worked off those extra calories, (frankly that would be impossible!) 
I may think about cutting back a little but it won’t be much different to what I ate/drank before!

Life is all about balance!

Thank you all so much!

Thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday yesterday, you all made it incredibly special! πŸŽ‰πŸ’•πŸ¦„
What an incredible day it was! Waking up with my most precious humans singing to me, showered in wonderful gifts, video calls from Mummy in Cyprus & Daddy in Norfolk, and all the notifications that you beautiful people sent me!
Lunch was spectacular as always, at The Tarro Lounge in Hinckley, gluten free as well, perfect! I think we could have stayed there all day but we were needed back home at The Manor! 
I don’t think we were home more than 30 minutes when the Fugly Manor Madness began! 

Guest arriving after guest, as one left another appeared, it was perfect! 

Even had a mini clubbercise from Kate & Deb (watch out for that video! πŸ˜‚) 
I say it every year, I feel like the luckiest person alive to have so many amazing people in my life!

Sisters, Brothers, friends & blood, my tribe! I love you all so much & I feel it back! 
Life is amazing, thank you for being a part of it & making it so magical! 

I would love to tag you all in this post but that would be near impossible! Just know that my thank you is to everyone! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜šπŸ’—

Welcome to December!

Yasss! 

Welcome to December! ❄⛄
Such a lovey time of the year, call me crazy but I always loved the hustle and bustle of December! Especially when we had our family πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦ shop, which, in its time, turned out to be one of the most popular in the town! 

It was something special when all the family worked together as a team to serve customers as efficiently as possible! πŸ‘›πŸ›
