Well, we’re as ready as we’ll ever be, and I’m about to log off, relax and enjoy an afternoon glass of wine with (hopefully) some crap Christmas telly.I did finish some of the new aprons, but there wasn’t a chance to photograph them (red is very difficult in good light, but in winter, almost impossible). I’m happy to have the ‘reject’ one to keep and wear on Sunday (I always keep the one I am least happy with), the rest will be for next year now.I bought an extremely cheap box of tat from Ebay…to use with some tree rejects (the things that weren’t strung etc) to make a wreath. It’s not to everyone’s taste, but I love it. It only took about 20 mins to make and then a painful hour to fix to the door!It’s on just in time for the weather to turn nasty, as the remains of Storm Barbara head our way. The door has a small overhead porch so I’m hoping it survives alright, but as pretty much everything on there is plastic, it should be OK.So that’s it. I’m quite excited about not leaving the house for a few days and for the first time in forever, we genuinely don’t have anything planned for almost a week (we do have guests, here and there, but I have a stocked freezer and cupboards, ready). I’m thankful we’re all healthy and happy and together for Christmas so I hope for the same for everyone I know.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful 20017.

Merry Christmas!! And enjoy your week at home!! I know how you feel, it is like a vacation to just get to stay at home for more than one day in a row!!!
Everything sound perfect Beth.I LOVE the wreath, right up m ally. Merry Christmas to you and yours, hugs xx
Merry Christmas to you too 🙂
Looking beautifully festive! And oh my what a box of treats and fantastic wreath. Wishing you a merry Christmas!
Beautiful photos. Apron is fantastic, wreath is beautiful and the photo of your shocked cat made me laugh. Wishing you the best of Christmases!
Thanks Cat 🙂 We didn’t make Freddie wear his collar long, but he was weirdly OK in it and Felix even got him in the matching Elf hat at one point!!! Birdie would have freaked out if we’d tried to put any kind of collar or costume on her, wild little puss cat that see is. One sleep to go! Happy Christmaaaaasssss!!
What a brilliant wreath, hopefully the storm won’t be too bad, it was forecast worse than it actually was here.
Enjoy Christmas with your boys and I’ll ‘see’ you the other side.
The storm was a non event here, thank goodness. Just a bit windy and wet, but nothing to worry about (I have to worry a bit when it gets very windy in case it blows the chicken houses over, as it once did!). See you in 2017!!!! Bxx
Merry Christmas dear Beth, love your wreath you’ve made! Inspired me to give it a go (we don’t have one yet), yours is lovely! Enjoy your day together with your boys 🙂 love Safxxx
Mine was super easy and quick to make, but mainly because I bought the felt bobble base from West Elm for half price, so that was the main shape done. Have a fab day tomorrow, see you in the New Year! Bxxx
P.s. meant to say your birdy apron is beautiful ❤
Merry Christmas Beth, that wreath has so much awesome going on, I love it. We’re headed for 40 degrees here tomorrow and will be dipping in and out of my parents’ pool all day!
I find that such a weird idea!! I have cousins in Australia and New Zealand and it’s funny seeing their Christmas photos as it’s such a different thing than what I’m used to. Saying that, it’s a lot warmer here in Kent then my home of the North of England, so I even get Yorkshire envy when they get frost and (ideally!) snow and here it’s just wet and misty. Hope you have a smashing day enjoying the pool and hanging out with your family. Bxx
Happy Christmas. x
Merry Christmas to you too!
