The Festivities Have Begun

Where do I start to tell you about the lovely week I've had.... let's take Julie Andrews advice and start at the very beginning...

Wednesday we took my nephew to meet Father Christmas


followed by my first Christmas Dinner of the festive season


I can never visit Van Hages without a few goodies falling into my shopping bag


Thursday was Brody's first birthday and he celebrated with having some friends over to play with his new toys


Friday I travelled with friends up North in preparation for a friends wedding the following day

The wedding was held at a lovely church followed by a reception at Caverswall Castle - an absolutely stunning venue



Sunday it was up early to travel back home and celebrate Brody's birthday yet again with family



Today I'm exhausted and thankfully have the day off work to do some catching up before another couple of busy days ahead this weekend supporting Rose at the Christmas Market Friday and another friends wedding Saturday!


Pin It Now!
