New Year

Wishing all my friends a very Happy New Year and every best wish for a happy and healthy 2014.

Thank you for your kindness and lovely comments in 2014.

Hope you have a fun evening.

I am wearing this necklace this evening

You can never have too much sparkle on New Year

Or too much jewellery

Good motto

Happy Christmas to all my lovely blogging friends I hope you have a lovely day with family and loved ones.

Thank you so much for your very kind wishes for my mother. She is getting better but it will be a slow process and she will have to take things easy for a little while.

Presents are wrapped and I have just the final preparations to do today. I will probably go into town to savour the Christmas atmosphere and watch all the last minute shoppers panicking.

I hope to have a relaxing lazy Christmas reading and watching movies and listening to music. What are your plans?

Cake is made

Stockings hung

Flowers arranged

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.

The before

The after

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

I am having a weekend away in Belfast. I had a great days shopping a not so great lunch but our hotel the Park Avenue is lovely.

I cannot recommend Belfast enough the people are so friendly and welcoming.

I am a little behind with my Christmas plans so have to energise myself next week. Plus it is time to put up the tree.

It is also time to look at some fashion for Christmas I think you can never have enough sparkle this time of year.

I love this outfit I'm sure it costs a fortune but the skirt is amazing

Perfect sparkly top

A great dress to wear on Christmas Day

Love the colour of this dress

Some sparkes I hope to wear 

We are taking our Christmas plans seriously.

Have a lovely weekend
