Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart, The Very Next Day You Sold It On eBay!!

Hello everyone, hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas?

So full up of eating now, and feels so ready to burst!!

What I wore~
Jacket ~ Primark 
Gold tunic ~ Dorothy Perkins 
Shiny leggings ~ Matalan 
Gold shoes ~ F & F
Don't ya just love listening to the words kids sing to songs when they either don't know the words to the song or is it they just sing what they like?

Original words~

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year,To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special.

Wham~ Last Christmas..
 Love this song!!

My kids sing~

"Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart, The Very Next Day You Sold It On eBay!!"
Next year to save me from tears I will give it to Tesco Extra!! Tesco Extra!!

After a restless night on Christmas eve 3 out of 4 children ran into our room on Christmas day at just after 6 a.m wanting to open Christmas presents. A non stop day of eating food I dropped into bed at 8 p.m and fell into a deep deep sleep.

 Today I was feeling a bit sparkly (maybe from eating to many caramel barrels from the Roses tin!). We went to visit my mum and dad and have had another day of eatting. So fed up of sweet things we have just watch Man v Food on the food channel and watched him eat 9 litres of ice-cream mixed with lots of fudge sauce, chocolates, jellies and bananas in a chocolate fudge Sunday!!

Oh my how did he do it!!

I am so ready to detox now!

How about you?

Have you eaten to much over the last few day?

Did Santa buy you some nice presents?

I got some amazing shoes, which I will share very soon :)

Elf Style; Not Grinch Style...


scarf ~ Primark
Dress ~ Next
Tights ~ Primark
Boots ~ Matalan
Really getting in to the Christmas spirit by watching lots and lots of Christmas movies over the last week or so. 

Yesterdays outfit was inspired by Buddy from the Elf  Movie!! 

After telling my children who all looked at me strangely whose style I was inspired by, my oldest son chirps up; oh sorry I thought you were "The Grinch"!!


Loving lots of family time and rediscovering retro games!! 

My husband put me sonic 2 on this tablet yesterday.

Aww brings back good memories of when we used to play it years ago! Had to stop playing after level 4 as I was feeling so bad for sonic, who I kept drowning!!

I have a new hair dresser in the house!! 

Mini me has a new obsession; doing mums hair!

Everywhere I go she follows me around with a hairbrush and bobbles..

So far we have watched a new Home Alone, Elf and The Grinch.

Are you watching any Christmas movies? 

Which one is your favourite? or your favourite Christmas song?

My favourite film is-

Muppet's Christmas Carol.. Scrooge ..

On that note I will leave you with a taster...

Saving this one for Christmas Eve...

After saving up for Christmas for the last few months and no shopping I finally got to go out and buy something I really wanted...

A Christmas Jumper!!

My Kids have them every year and I always um and arr, should I get one? yes, no, Maybe!!

This one is not to much like Christmas and I will get lots of wear out of it in the snow too? Maybe...

But my other new one is so much Christmas-y but i will share this one in my next outfit post...

Cheat's Christmas Cake...

Preparation - 30 minutes

Cooking time - 10 minutes

Serves - 8

Strawberry And Blueberry Crumble...

A Christmassy twist on a favourite pud.

It doesn’t seem to matter what size your Christmas cake is, there is always a little bit of marzipan left that you don’t know what to do with.

Don’t throw it away, just 75g (3oz) adds festive flavour to a simple crumble, delicious spooned over fresh fruity strawberries and blueberries.
