27 Dec

Happy Christmas! This last week has been manic. On top of various events and Christmas parties we have been super busy preparing the house for Christmas day. (Builders were out on the 21st and carpets went down just a few days before. So in a word, hectic!)

This year we hosted, with both families! It was a lovely day and so nice to be able to celebrate all together at home, but I must admit I didn’t relax as much as I usually would. I really don’t know how anyone can host Christmas on their own?! I am so lucky to have a ‘chef’ husband, ‘sous chef’ brother-in-law, a fabulously organised Italian mother in law and an amazing mum. We all worked together and actually made a pretty good team. Christmas day was super-smooth, and I think everyone enjoyed it?!

As predicted little A was spoilt rotten, so much so she still has a whole sack of presents to open. Her favourite gifts at the moment – new baby ‘sister’ (slightly worrying as I think she thinks this was the baby we have all been talking about in mummies tummy…) a Hello Kitty watch, life-size Pony complete with sound effects, saddle and bridle,  and the most adorable pair of Prada shoes. (OK so the shoes are more my favourite.) Oh and she is obsessed with one of her new books, the dinosaur that pooed Christmas. (Don’t ask.) We have to read it every night before bed. She also loved the water pistol in her cracker.

Boxing day, as a treat, we hit the Harrods sale. I picked out my Christmas present (a stunning Monica Vinader siren diamond ring) and also treated myself to a few extras. It would be rude not to right? The beauty and perfume if nothing else is well worth braving the crowds for, although you can also shop online. Way more civilised. I got a Laura Mercier Coconut Milk duo, and candle, for just £27. Maje and Mulberry were also not to be missed. I left a very happy girl.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa treated you well. I would love to hear what you all got?

Next up, New years!
