This week I have been…
Oh hey there Friday.
And hey there the end of November, another chapter of the year is about to close. I honestly cannot believe how quickly this year has gone by. Cliche I know but seriously where does the time go.
So how have you been?
We had a lovely family weekend. In between Mr H studying and shopping for Christmas Trees and decorations it was restful and very much needed. This week has been quite the opposite. There have been some long days and nights working and then George has been under the weather. Lots of broken sleep for us all and tears from him which always makes me sad. Its hard to watch your baby boy suffer. I wish I could make him feel well again in the click of my fingers. Sadly I am not Mary Poppins. Darn it. Cuddles it is.
And so, this week I have been:
Jumpers, Chunky cosy knits and Jumper dresses. Tis the season. I picked up this gorgeous jumper from H&M recently, it is such a gorgeous colour and super cosy. I guess you could say that this is my uniform at this time of year. All the cosy feels n all.
We managed to catch the new Last Christmas movie, you know the one with Emilia Clarke in and written by Emma Thompson. It was a lovely watch, quite sad and not what I was expecting but a great storyline if not a little thought provoking. Definitely one to add to my Christmas movie list. Ooh I write a post all about our favourite Christmas movies, do pop over if you fancy a read.
Christmas Tree Shopping
Always a favourite weekend of the year. The last weekend in November is our little family tradition – where we head over to our local tree farm that we have been visiting for more than 10 years. We wander into the farm and tag up our trees. It really is a lovely activity to do as a family and it always kicks off the festivities nicely. If you’re thinking of buying a real tree then I would recommend you go to a local farm, buy them direct from the source as they are so much cheaper and it’s nice to buy from a local farmer.
Our trees have been delivered this week and it is my job to decorate them this weekend. I cannot wait. It will literally take me at least Friday evening and all of Saturday, and boy will it be worth it. I can already smell the scent of the trees wafting through the house, and so with that and some mulled wine we will be very much getting into the festive spirit this weekend.
Decorating George’s bedroom
And so it was time. After visiting the Christmas Tree Farm to pick out our two trees for the house, George decided he wanted to deck his room out on our return home. And so we did. This is his tree from last year which we popped into the garden and miraculously he survived the year. I guess that tells you what kind of weather year we have had. The previous year it died due to the amazing summer. It wasn’t quite as lovely this year. I think his room looks perfect. I really do enjoy seeing the colourful lights and decorations. The grown up trees are much more conservative. Or should I say pretty.
We stumbled across some more street art in a local town. I say we, Mr H saw it and even offered to take my photo. That, I couldn’t resist. A network of graffiti artists have been brightening up doors and walls in Stoke on Trent all year with some really interesting and colourful artwork. his one is so so pretty. Anyone would think I’d matched my outfit to it.
And that’s my this week I have been. Have a wonderful weekend. May it be filled with the magic of Christmas.
