Christmas Time...

Wednesday, 26 December 2012

•Have you all had a good Christmas?! I think together with my birthday this has definitely, in memory, been one of my merriest years and I'm still doing my best to long out the lazy days of strategic Quality Street munching in my pyjamas to the best of my ability.

I've spent the period with Chris and his family in a tiny village near Spalding in Lincolnshire this year (where his parents live) as my family have gone away for their yearly spot of winter sun to Cyprus and though I was beginning to have some regrets over missing out on sun and sea again, I've loved being all cosied up with board games, films and family time.

On Christmas Eve Chris and I took a venture to the nearest town to finish off our shopping and decided last minute after a champagne lunch that we'd watch Life of Pi at the cute independent cinema across town. Best decision ever I'd say, the film was genuinely touching and even though it has no Christmas references the sentiment of the story is very much a reminder of what this time of year is about. I cry at everything (the Google daddy daughter advert? I sobbed. X Factor auditions? Gets me every time) but I don't want to ruin the film for anyone wanting to watch it so will wrap this post up by saying that I came away reminded that it's not what's under your tree, but who's around it that matters, and all the extras and niceties that come with the day are just really a lovely bonus.

I hope you all had an amazing day and have everything you wished for! Here are a few Instagram pics from the last few days, you can follow me on @girlseeksfashion xo

Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree!
A huge box from Chris, when I opened it a balloon flew out and I had to open lots of boxes to reveal a small envelope which had tickets to see Ed Sheeran in Dublin and flight details inside - Soo happy!

Bloody amazing present, someone knows me well!
