Boots: New Look (ancient)
It was only recently I featured a Goddiva
dress on the blog, and when they then offered to send this little beauty
I just couldn’t refuse. The second it arrived I knew I wanted to wear it for Christmas Day- never mind there was only going to be three of us for most of it…if you can overdress for Christmas when CAN you overdress?
As before, I sized up as I find the brand does come up a little small, although looking back I could have gone for my usual size in this one. I’ve gone from avoiding bodycon like the plague to kind of embracing it a bit. I’m enjoying having a healthier looking body and with half a stone to go I can’t wait for the final weigh in and getting on with getting back to exercise, letting go of numbers and living life as it’s meant to be lived.
It was a quiet Christmas for us, the majority of the day was just Mum, Dad and Myself. We did our usual present opening whilst drinking tea and watching TV; this was after I battled my way through my Mum’s wrapping skills and my Christmas stocking. I was spoilt rotten with a new coat and perfume from my parents as well as jewellery, stationary and gorgeous trinkets galore from people I know and love. Ben bought my a tripod for my camera so I can embark on my 2014 mission to improve this blog and my photography as well as a hair curling wand to tame and enhance my locks.
We had the company of my Grandad and Uncle for the afternoon and my best friend, Trudi as no Christmas Day is complete without a visit from her. Time was spent talking, face-timing my brother and playing scrabble on my iPad before yet another round of food and an early night.
Boxing day is always a chilled one here, no sales shopping or rushing to do anything. A game of Catopoly at my Grandad’s was about all we could manage. Spending so much time with those I love is one of the best things about this time of year. My brother and his girlfriend were missed, as was my Ben but thanks to technology we caught up with them and my cousins celebrating baby Noah’s first Christmas.
And today it is back to work, no long and lazy break for Mum and I myself and I can’t say I mind too much. It’ll be calmer than the weeks leading up to the big day and there are plenty of chocolates and biscuits to feast on thanks to overly generous patients. I quite like the routine of going back to work, more so this year after so long off…
and of course, being Friday I have two luxuriously lazy days ahead. Bring on the Turkey leftovers.
How was your Christmas?
