Just thought I would sneak in and do a little post. Well I hope you all thoroughly enjoyed Christmas, ate too much, drank too much and laughed with friends and family. More importantly did you all get that 'me' time you all deservedly needed?
We had a quiet Christmas, it didn't plan out anything like I had envisaged as C's Granddad passed away two days before Christmas. A lovely man at the age of 96 will be sadly missed by everyone, especially C. It was only the weekend before I was helping him to tie his shoe laces and chatting away about the football and the weather. He wasn't ill....I think it was just his time.
So I've spent my Christmas making sure C and the in laws are OK, making dinners and lunches where required, helping out organising the necessary and listening to so many brilliant stories about Frank's life. So unfortunately we will all have to face the new year with a funeral. We're all getting together on New Years Eve to have a meal and a drink and light 3 Chinese lanterns in memory of Frank.
Its not all been sad though we have embraced the Christmas spirit (Frank would have been disappointed if we hadn't) C was spoiled by me with a PS3 and Fifa13 so you can guess where he has been spending his time? :D And today we ventured out to the shops and I made a start on updating my wardrobe (it seriously needed it). I'm a huge fan of Long Tall Sally but have never actually bought any jeans from there, surprisingly comfy and even though as per usual I'm in between sizes a size 12 was a nice fit, lovely and long at 34" and spotted a pair of raspberry coloured skinny jeans in the sale so bought those too. I also tried on a nice shirt but they didn't have my size (feeling an online order coming soon!). I then bought I gorgeous long jacket from John Lewis which is a Barbour and was half price in the sale.....BARGAIN! Its a start....a new year and a new me.
I'm also feeling ready to get back to work with a new attitude (and no more ridiculous overtime) and get my website filled with lots of new gorgeous bags. I'm determined to go into 2013 with a positive mental attitude!
