It seems like everyone has had a snowy Christmas in the UK this year. While its great to have a White Christmas (especially if you have placed a bet at William Hills, it has meant traffic problems, delivery issues, shortages of supplies and for some people a change of plans. Therefore not such a wonderful time of the year for some.
As one of the only two drivers in the family, I'm finally glad the snow has thawed, no more ice to deal with, no more defrosting the inside of my car as well as the outside, no more ice-skating in the local Asda car park. The final straw for me was my car skidding into a main road on Christmas Day, luckily I didn't manage to drive into a passing car so I think Father Christmas may have been looking out for me on that day! The snow also plays havoc with my planned Christmas outfit, no glam heels or pretty dress for Christmas 201I 0, walking two Jack Russells home in sub-zero temperatures meant lots of layering, thick socks and Uggs!
Present wise, I think I did rather well: books, DVDs, makeup, jewellery, handbags and TWO cupcake cake stands! I will definitely have to fully bring out my domestic goddessness in 2011! We also got a blender so we can whip up some recipes from the Jamie Oliver 30 minute meals cookbook we treated ourselves to.
On Boxing Day, I finally had the chance to get glammed up and sod the snow! Every year, Boxing Day is our girl's night out with some drinks in Blackpool town centre. I paired up a silver Brocade dress with a velvet jacket, tights and peep toe shoes with a new clutch bag I was given for Christmas (perfect timing for this gift). Karoake, dancing and alcohol made a good late start to our festivities.
I'm now spending the day in my pjs catching up on blogs posts, looking after my nephews and niece watching Shrek Forever. I hope you are having a chilled out Christmas!
