A, simply, amazing Christmas 2012 – Part 1: My gifts

It’s just 45 minutes past  midnight so it’s the 28th and, technically, the third day since Christmas, but I’ve not been to sleep so it still feels like the day after Boxing day.

I have had what can only be described as, the best Christmas ever. I got to see (Almost) all of my family and my son and I were thrilled to have three full days with my fiancee visiting us (Even though the third was an unplanned day due to us not having realised that the trains weren’t running on the line he has to take to get home). I was also very, very spoiled. Much more so than expected and I have a collection of lovely things which will brighten up the coming months.

Would you guess I like beauty and
cosmetcs? – especially soap&glory
and mememe

I’m doing my post Christmas blog in two parts as I have lots of lovely photos and I don’t want to just plop them all inn to the same post. Oh yes, I wrote the word plop in my blog!

Home things and kitchen things – Lots of vintage and purple!

I’m doing the ‘Things I got spoiled with’ post in a sort of ‘haul’ style post, though I’m not going to list everything as there’s rather a lot there. I’m also doing this post first. That is not because I think the things that I got are more important than the family stuff because, without a doubt, they’re not. The only reason this post is being done first is because I want to ask my sister’s permission to post some photos of my nephew in the blog and I cannot txt her at almost 1am!

So, in regards to the gifts, I need to say thank you to; My Fiancee, my Son and Fiancee’s daughter (also thanks to my fiancee hehe), my Mum, Mum’s husband, Mum’s husband’s parents, Fiancee’s parents, my Nan and Grandpops, Warren, Fiancee’s friends Thom and Sarah and their son Jason, my Dad and Step Mum, my Brothers and Sister (And their families/gfs), Nan, Aunty Daph and Uncle Bob, Ruth and James, Chris, Chris’ parents, Vicky and last, but not least, my Step mum’s parents.These are all people who gave presents to my son, to me or to both of us – And you’re all wonderful people and we’re so lucky to have you all in our lives.

Clothes, jewellery and random bits and bobs

The pile of things I got prove that the people in my life know me so so well and it makes me smile. I used to be very hard to buy for as I didn’t really like so many ‘things’ but now, over this past few years I’ve become interested in things that make it so much easier, and people have really noticed the things that I enjoy now.

Foody bits, books and dvds!

Just a quick overview of things I got – Loots of beauty things; soap&gloryMememe especially. Homeware things for when we get our own place; floral cake stand and matching tins, lanterns, baking things, lots of purple utensils and various vintagey bits. Clothes and jewellery, lovely woolen socks, fab tshirt, looove my silver ring and also looove my necklace made by a wonderful friend of mine; Blyde Jewellery! Lots and lots of chocolate and some vanilla coke and fruit loops. And then some books and dvds; some cook books, a pile of fantasy books (Incl one of the fiancee’s favourite series’) and some dvds which are ones the fiancee and I will really enjoy watching together!

I really really do want to get on with blogging more in the future, to anticipate reviews on plenty of the things in these photos!
