au revoir twenty:eleven

wow, 2011! you were pretty good to me in the end! i thank you. alot.
---december was a busy little month for me; christmas fairs and family visits and more family visits and loads of working and then the big day and then new year. so hectic.
a little visual...
our christmas robin at work-- he pretty much lives in the office. we love him.
christmas meet ups with old friends, and distant friends... and having the same old laughs and little stories. i miss them. i miss them all. i wish i had enough money to visit everyone.
Sebastian and i had our very first christmas together in our little house. it was perfect. we were there only for a short while however, as we were visiting family, but it was just perfect!
we ate lots of delightful foods. including, mother's very special christmas dinner and homemade sausage rolls and mince pies. we ate chocolates and cake, and chocolates. nuts with fruits. nuts without fruits. homemade toffee tart. german gingerbread snowflakes. blue cheese and biscuits we drank mulled wine and tea. hot blackcurrants with honey for our sore throats. was amazing.
i got treated too. very much so. with a zara dress and pom pom slippers and sparkly nail varnishes and a rabbit dressing gown and lots and lots of mugs for my tea and glasses for milk and chocolate delights and pirate coins and peter pan shirts and cookbooks and a teacup lamp and another pompom scarf and homemade jewellery and more.
i have so much more to write. to say. to do... but for now i will go and dream away the night as i have work tomorrow---this breaks my heart.
BUT... i do have one more thing to say. if you follow me on twitter, you will already know. but those who don't....

i got engaged!!!! Sebastian did it christmas eve after a beautifully romantic meal, that he cooked. he got down on one knee, asked for permission from my father.... and everything!
i am so happy. i am engaged, and researching things for an actual wedding! i suppose i should really start saving now. oh dear.
goodnight my lovelies.
