Christmas 2013 (Part 1)

Thursday, 26 December 2013

1. I'm sat on the sofa with not one but two christmas cookie jars accompanying me. They're tasty.

2. I just watched part 2 out of 3 of Sissi with my mum. Chances are you'll only know what this is if you're German or Austrian, which you are probably not. It's about Elisabeth of Austria and for some reason it's a christmas thing to do watch this every year in Germany, well at least in this household. It's so so wonderful.

3. I'm now watching some episodes of Gilmore Girls for the 1300th time. I love them so. They're like my mum and I. It's like my life. I always used to watch it with my mum, I basically grew up with Rory. Also, there's something surprisingly calming about knowing all the words to something.

4. You can probably tell by now that I'm having a pretty splendid time. I also had a more than wonderful Christmas, so I thought I'd share some photos with you.

P.S. The photos are mainly by my brother and some by my mum :) Just so you know.

SO ready for christmas!

Good evening lovely people, it's christmas eve eve and I could literally not be more exited for Christmas! Our tree is decorated, our table is set and I've even tidied my room (just making sure I stay on the nice list!). Our house is a massive advent calendar on the outside and winter wonderland indoors. Our dog has even stopped puking, if that isn't festive of him, I don't know what is.

Anyway, I just wanted to quickly wish you all the merriest of all Christmas, joyful hours with your loved ones, delicious food and some stillness in all the excitement.

Getting into the Christmas Spirit.

Just this once, let's actually indulge in the run up to Christmas, let's

❤ forget the rushing around we have to do and make time for ourselves
❤ think of thoughtful presents for our loved ones
❤ have cozy film night with lots of blankets and plenty of hot chocolate
❤ enjoy our gingerbread lattes instead of busying ourselves to find signal to tweet about them
❤ light candles and take beautifully scented baths
❤ bake batches and batches of christmas cookies
❤ give at least some of these delicious cookies to our friends
❤ reminisce about all the wonderful things that happened this year
❤ do something nice for someone who doesn't expect it
