Quiet Christmas

I hope you had a lovely, relaxing and family-filled Christmas.

Ours was particularly quiet and relaxing - you can tell by the number of times I've painted my nails!

I've also had time to get stuck into a jigsaw puzzle. It will (eventually) depict three zebras in the Savannah...

Those stripes are driving me mad! But then I guess that's what puzzles are for...

Next on my list of relaxing, non-work activities is to pick up my slightly-ignored crochet ripple blanket and get on with a few more stripes. I'm afraid it hasn't seen much love for the last couple of months.

Wishing you a fabulous New Year!

Festive in red, gold and... orange?

Christmas has finally spread from my socks to the rest of my outfit. Yesterday I teamed red, orange and bauble earrings:

And then I got carried away with my nails:

It's nearly here! :)

Shivery December

Gosh, it's been super-cold recently! How have you been surviving?

This is my new purple fluffy hat. It's probably a little bit OTT, but rather fabulous. Of course, being almost six feet tall means that I really stand out wearing it!

And these are my fleecy booties - essential indoor-wear at the moment. Often coupled with Christmas socks (see previous post!).

I've also done my teeny bit to spread some Christmas cheer by taking part in a Christmas Card Swap organised by Zaneta @ Runner's Luck. My cards all have to zoom their way across the Atlantic Ocean so I'm guessing they'll arrive slightly later than hoped. It's the first time I've done something like this and I'm looking forward to receiving some exciting Christmas post in the next week or so.

No snow yet though. I know it's a right hassle (especially in the UK as apparently we never learn to cope with it!) but I do love it.

A weekend in pictures

Dodgy iPhone pictures I'm afraid...

Is there anything better than Christmas socks?!
