Life Lately…

Hi everyone, Wow it has been a mad month or so!! I know lots of my usual post have changed due to Christmas coming,. 

Yeah I love sharing guest food posts around this time of year for us all to try, I know, I think a lot about yummy food in December. This past month I have been painting, aww once you start one room everywhere else gets messed up don’t it? 

Then when I finish my daughters room I started on our living room. 

Glad it is all done and dusted now, well nearly, just a boarder to sort out in the room!

Christmas tree is up, our children love to decorate the house and get the tree up on the 1st December. 

My daughter woke up Monday morning thinking Santa had been!! 

What a disappointment it must have been going to school instead…

Well I started off this month trying to be good and eat some health salads, but with trying lots of cakes and Christmas recipes out, the salad theory when out the window!!

My featured wall in the living room all finished, wow love these little birds…

Picked this beautiful Cath Kidston china tea pot up in John lewis on special offer at just under half price ( just over £10-00 ) such a bargain!

Me and the hubby got a night out to ourselves, wow it has been ages. We went to the Capital FM arena to review the Micky Flanagan show, was a great night.

Noticed the glitter in my hair?

My daughter showered me in glitter like a princess, bless her.

Went to Nottingham and took 100’s of photos of my Cheeky shoes for a fun video they are making, ekk can’t wait to see the finished video.

I keep checking my inbox every morning noon and night, watch this space!

Getting crafty with some legs I cut off my old jeans in the summer.

 I made some jeans shorts and knew the leftovers would come in handy somehow. Take after my grandad for stashing things away.

Can’t live without my banana and peanut butter milkshakes. Going to make some healthier ones in the new year but for now the peanut butter keeps jumping in.

Playing old games with the kids before Santa brings them new ones.

 That is if they have been good this year??

What have you been up to over the last few weeks?

Anything exciting?

    Great post. The tree looks beautiful. I love the Cheery Red. Also what a pretty Tea Pot. And I am curious that last game with the Green+White Flower what kind of game is it?

    Isn't it a rule that we're not allowed to eat salads in December? I'm pretty sure we have to substitute baked goods 🙂 Great photos, #PoCoLo
