Merry Christmas everyone!!

Ok so I know it’s late but I really hope everyone had a lovely festive period 🙂 I had a nice time myself untill I got sick on Boxing day but that is a whhhooolleeeee different story!!

So earlier this year I signed up to an Advent Swap on Hookin with Laalaa’s lovely Blog. I’ve never done anything like this before so I was a little nervous but it all went very well I think/hope 😛 I totally forgot to take a picture of the parcels I sent and of the parcels I received……yes I know I am very silly!! Anyway my Swap partner for the advent swap was kathy of Postcards from the PP!

 

Advent Swap Day 1 - 15!

Look at all the lovely things Kathy sent me 🙂 It was so exciting opening something every day!! I meant to take a picture each day but there always seemed to be a million and one things to do 😛 I think my fave things were a pair of Rudolph earrings, a snowman badge and the silver bird that I will put on my tree next year!!

Advent Swap day 16 - 25!

I totally love the stocking 😀 It’s soooooo cute! It was a lovely experience and I hope to be involved in something similar next year!! I hope that Kathy enjoyed the stuff I gave her too *fingers crossed* 🙂

I also signed up for a Secret Santa Swap on Crafty Whoopidooings fab Blog.  The idea being that we all get a name and try to find out what they would like as a secret santa gift.  I was very lucky to receive mine all the way from New Zealand 😀

Secret Santa!

My personal favourite thing from these little beauties was actually the Christmas Card I was sent! It’s all summery and pretty and completely not what you would expect!! I was sent a little card with my parcels which I don’t have to hand at the moment so I will post the link in my next Blog!!

See you all soon,

 

Christmas works night out – oh yes!

Helllooooo! I’m back again……..

 

So recently (like November I think!!) I went on my Christmas works night out! I actually work on two sites with the same company but I only get one free night out 😛 This year was the turn of my Friday work place!! We went quite early so it would be a little quieter and to make sure we could actually book somewhere!! We ended up going to a nice little Italian called Moranto’s (I don’t actually have a clue how you spell it!!) outside the City Center so it was nice and civilised haha!!

Ready to Party!!

I kind of have crazy eyes on this!! It happens a lot, clearly I have no clue how to pose haha!! The meal in general was lovely, although we did have a disaster with one of the Pizzas! They didn’t put it on the original order and when we told them they tried to rush it and it wasn’t cooked very well (they did give it to us for free though!!).  I also had a desert for a change, mint ice cream mmmmm!!

Once the meal was done we moved on to a random pub, I literally have no idea what it was called! We were able to find seats though so that was a bonus!!

This is not the most flattering photo of me ever but it’s the only one I have with Bianca! Isn’t she adorable??

Anna-Marie and Nina

Sharron dancing!

They had an acoustic set on which was quite good and set us all off dancing! Well we sat in our chairs swaying from side to side 😛

The whole gang!

And here we all are at the end of the night!! A very colourful bunch haha!! So all in all it was a nice night and free too….you can’t complain about free 😉

Hope you are all having a lovely run up to Christmas….not long now 😀
