Elves Behavin’ Badly

Elves Behavin’ Badly

I’m a bit late blogging about it. I’ve been ill with one thing or another for the vast majority of the past 3 months. This has put me behind with absolutely everything! Obviously, Autumn, my day job and any paid commitments on the blog have had to come first.

Anyway, a couple of months ago I got an email saying that I’d won a competition with Elves Behavin’ Badly. It was something I entered at Blog On Xmas. It was a total surprise, as I thought it had probably already been drawn by then! The elves at the event loved my turkey hat and that clinched my prize! View Post

Would you rather…? Christmas tag

Would you rather…? Christmas tag

There are almost always various blogger’s tags circulating around the blogging community. These generally consist of a few questions, in which you can get to know the people behind the blog better.

I have taken part in a few of these before. It came as no surprise to me when I saw a Christmas tag circulating. Thank you to Shevy at Moonsomnia for tagging me. You can read her post here! View Post

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 5 (and some tips!)

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 5 (and some tips!)

On the Friday, we woke up to bright sunshine again. It seems to be a recurring theme that every time we go to Wales, the weather perks up just as we’re leaving. Typically, sun was forecast for at least the weekend afterwards.

As Dave was packing up everything, I took Autumn for a walk down to the village to see the advent countdown. There were notably fewer people and a fairly sombre mood. I could have happily stayed at Bluestone for far longer. I actually was on the brink of tears when we were leaving. View Post

Making cocktails with Lambrini

Making cocktails with Lambrini

Christmas party season is definitely upon us. Around the country, people scour the alcohol aisle in their supermarket for the best Christmas tipples. With just a few bottles of Lambrini and some other ingredients you can make a whole array of cocktails! I was recently sent some samples of their different flavours to test them out with my family ahead of Christmas dinner.

We usually stick to the same choices of wine, Baileys and snowballs. It’ll be nice to have another option on the table this year!

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 4

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 4

Woohoo, this is my 200th blog post! I couldn’t let this slip by without a casual mention. I love that it’s happened to fall on this blog post. Our Christmas midweek break at Bluestone was so wonderful. I’ve really been enjoying reliving it on the blog this week!

By our fourth day at Bluestone, I was beginning to feel quite sad. The week had gone so fast! I wanted to visit Santa’s Workshop and Elftopia and do all the Christmassy things again!  View Post
