Christmas Joy’s

Christmas Joy’s
Did you all have a very Merry Christmas?  I know I did!
My beautiful mother (see the resemblance?) came to stay with Iain and I.  We rose late and took our time opening our presents whilst drinking tea from Santa mugs.
I had some wonderful presents this year including the most amazing watch I could wish for …

… a beautiful antique necklace …
… and many a new edition for my growing library …
After a hearty breakfast we went for a walk with the dogs and stumbled across some curious sheep … strange how that happens in the country …
After our walk we watched Frozen and drank champagne before getting all dolled up and splashing on the red lipstick …
I wore an dress that I’ve had for donkey years with a gold belt and my new sparkly shoes from New Look which have been featured in an earlier post:
This dress is a real catch and looks great with a tailored blazer for work and can be jazzed up with the addition of some gold accessories and sky-scraper heels for evening wear.  I bought the dress from La Redoute at least 3 years ago and frequently pull it out back out of the wardrobe for those days when I want to feel sophisticated and regal.
My Mum’s dress is from Roman Originals and doesn’t it do wonders for her petite and curvy figure?
My husband was a star and cooked the most amazing roast venison dinner …
… and we all crowded around the tiny table squiggled into my tinier lounge to tuck in …
… before collapsing on the sofa to gorge on christmas pudding and corny christmas tele!
How did your Christmas go?  Was Santa very nice to you?

    Awww your Christmas looked amazing. 🙂 I had a wonderful Christmas too. Spent it with my sister in laws family, my husband and my mother in law in St.Albans this year. Mike and I don't give each other any big presents, just little presents in the stocking as we save the money for a big holiday and a trillion small ones every year. 🙂 Your mum is a stunning lady just like you. You both look gorgeous. 🙂

    Christmas in St. Alban's sounds lovely. My mum is truly stunning and really doesn't seem to age – I think its all the time she spends outdoors!

    Wishing you all the best for the New Year,
