It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Christmas is probably my favourite time of year (apart from it being so bloody cold) and visiting the Christmas Market in Princes Street gardens is a tradition. This year Yvonne and I took her little one who had an absolute blast although I think we enjoyed ourselves more than he did!

It’s practically illegal to go and NOT drink Mulled Cider!

It’s not all about the alcohol – Yvonne and I ate a ridiculous amount of food in a short space of time! Was rather disappointed by the churros that weren’t actually churros, more like doughy doughnuts.

We didn’t actually go on the big wheel although I usually do. We visited the market on a Thursday afternoon and while the atmosphere was lost somewhat with it still being light outside, the fact that the kids were still in school made the whole trip much calmer than in previous years.

I’ll definitely be going back for another visit, perhaps this time without children so we can go on the bigger rides and drink ALOT more alcohol.

October & November Catch Up

That’s right I’ve been a crap blogger lately – only 1 post in November. Oops! Wish I could say I have a valid reason but I don’t.

Here’s what’s been keeping me distracted:

Having fun with Yvonne in our onesies! Long gone are the days when we’d be drinking all day and night, now it’s all about cheesy movies, cosy PJs and mulled cider.

Drunken selfie after a night at the Hibs Club for a 40th. As usual I was crap and forgot to take an outfit shot.

Treating myself to a Clinique Chubby Stick – review to come soon.

Getting my nails Shellac’d – really like the grey with glitter on top. I’m rubbish with nails so even my Shellac doesn’t last as long as it should do 😦

Buying this adorable owl necklace from Persun Mall

Ate THE most delicious desserts from Madeleine’s Patisserie in Stockbridge. Yvonne, Jade and I almost wept over how good these were!

I’ve also been buying some well needed knitwear including a super cute Henry Holland polka dot number which I’ll post about soon.

Sure there’s plenty more I’ve been occupied with but just can’t remember at the moment
