It is very windy and wet here today not the best day for shopping or traveling. I hope these gale force winds disappear. It is difficult to know what to wear in this weather.
I had a fun time in Belfast and bought lots. I was lucky to get my light fitting which I had wanted I love when that happens. The city looked particularly lovely and festive.
The decorations are up, tree is up, cake is almond iced, cards sent so I think it is time to relax a little and savour the atmosphere and remember the real meaning of Christmas. In our fast paced life I sometimes find I do not stop and enjoy the moment.
My mum is in hospital after major surgery so you will have to forgive me if I do not post or comment in the next while as I will spending time with her. If I can I will.
I hope your preparations are going well and you are enjoying the build up to the big day.
I made this little arrangement
A little bit of festive Belfast
A kids dream
The light I managed to buy.
Trying to take his Christmas photo takes a long time
It has been a busy week started my Christmas shopping there is nothing I like more than ticking a present off a list.
I do not belong to the people who enjoy Christmas Eve shopping. I prefer to have a relaxed day in grafton street watching everyone panicking and enjoying the atmospher.
We do not put up our Christmas tree until after the 7th of December it is considered to be bad luck.
But I do sneak in the odd item. I bought these two cushions in penneys and they make me smile every time I go by.
Some people have a shoe fetish I must admit I have a Christmas stocking fetishing only realised when I took the 20 stockings out. Speaking of shoes aren't these sandals so beautiful. I do not know if I could walk in them but I would love looking at them.
Hope you Christmas preparations are going well and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
It is so cold this week the heat is on full and soups are the number one choice for lunch. It feels like snow could be on its way but we are being assured it will not happen. It is definitely a scarf, hat and gloves weather.
I love my morning walk with Rocky and am lucky to live close to a number of parks. My absolute favourite is Endas park which is not as busy as many others and is a joy to walk in this time of year.
The colours of the trees are so lovely with squirrels all over the place.
It's time to get my Christmas list sorted so a busy weekend ahead. Looking forward to red wine, candles, comfort food and a good film.
Have a lovely warm weekend.
Lots of warm drinks at the moment.
The lovely park where I walk most days.
I love this bridge the craftsmanship is so great. I watched the carpenter build it. Such an amazing talent.
Oilivia does it again. So chic and stylish.
She knows how to dress well in cold weather.
Scarf and gloves essential in this weather.
Loving this light from Bhs sadly they do not deliver to Ireland.
