30 days

i went to the country living christmas fair in islington a couple of weekends ago, it was so lovely. it was full of christmas gifts and treats and beautiful little things i wanted for myself. it completely got me in a christmassy mood. more than. alot of things were purchased... metal hearts and hearts made out of twigs with ribbons and decorations for the christmas tree and a floral teatowel for my new kitchen and secret gifts and a castle t shirt and photo frames and more christmas tree decorations.
i want to move here....
i nearly had a whole week off work for being so poorly. it was horrible. all i did was sleep.
thankfully, i got better in time for the christmas lights to be turned on with fake snow at the weekend. and i went for dinner with my girly friends. everyone is getting so grown up- k is moving to new zealand. j-m is going to dubai forever. jo jo is going to italy for work for 6 the snow. ames is having a baby so very soon... and my bestest friend might be moving to america with her boyfriend!!!!!! i can't lose her. i'll be ever so sad!
although, talking of growing up... i am going to be doing something ever so similar soon! so excited.
my little elves! it is a mere thirty days until christmas is officially upon us, so let's dance to christmas songs, wrap our christmas gifts and eat mince pies with our egg nogs! i am utterly in love with this time of year. and i forever will be.
now, i must turn up the volume to wham's 'last christmas'. good night little bees ♥
