"The frost makes it look like Narnia..."

That was what my boyfriend texted me this morning after he had walked to work. I thought it was such a lovely sentiment that I had to share it.

This weekend we put our Christmas tree up! Yay! I was overly excited about doing this because it is our first tree, and my boyfriend said that I could decorate it however I wanted (it is the one time of year he has let me have everything I want when it comes to decorating the flat, and I'm hoping to have my own little Santa's grotto here before long!) so I said that I didn't want a themed tree. I didn't want to discriminate! There's so many lovely decorations out there that I thought it would be silly to stick to a theme. However, now that it's up I've realised that I inadvertently have a theme. Red and white...what to do you think?

Yes, that is me drinking the kitsch Christmas classic, a Snowball! Mmmmm... yummy!

Also, look at what I made at my friend Cass' house on Thursday...

It took me much longer than I expected, but I'm pretty happy with the result. We've put it over our kitchen door so that it looks a bit festive when we go to make a cup of tea!

I was planning on doing some festive baking when I got home from work this afternoon, but I got sent home early because I'm not very well (how annoying), so instead I've been watching Nigella's Christmas Kitchen repeats (I am more than a little bit in love with her, and if I see that she is on TV, I will always watch. It doens't matter how many times I've seen it before) and The Nutcracker on TV.

Hopefully I'll be feeling better tomorrow, and I'm not getting the dreaded flu! Eek!

Hope everyone's had nice Mondays!!!



  1. AWWWW how lovely! Youve made me want to get a snowball to drink now! My old next door neighbour used to always feed them to me!

  2. Snowballs are Christmas in a glass!
