How Did I Get On?

Still working on the Christmas gift baskets for our mothers however it is taking longer than I anticipated due to lack of time to go out and shop for the contents. Bit by bit I am getting there – it will happen. On the wrapping side of things the other day I got into a bit of a wrapping frenzy put my audio book on and got cracking. With only 3 more presents to wrap and a couple more to buy I am pretty much all sorted.

One thing I do regret this year is not planning ahead enough to participate in The Broke & The Bookish Secret Santa – such a shame but next year will be a good one! (Not wishing the time away of course!).

Commenting has not been my strong point this week but I have visited almost 10 new blogs and let me tell you there are some awesome bloggers out there – as if you didn’t already know.

How Did I Get On?

As you can see I got most of my list done. On the commenting front there were only a couple of blogs that I commented on. However this week I have been slightly more active on Twitter than usual and am trying to take more pictures and Instagram straight away.

Christmas Shopping, Christmas, Shopping, Oxford Street, Festive, Seasonal, Season, Crowds, Presents

On the gift basket front I have been Christmas shopping a couple of times this week and done a lot more shopping for myself – although that is expected as I was surprisingly prepared this year as most presents are already bought. This is something that even surprises me!

Something that took my surprise that one step further was the sneaky find of two fabulous baskets that I will be using to make gifts for two lovely mothers. Keep your eyes peeled for a post on the completed baskets.

Ideal Home Show 2014

ideal home outside

With great thanks to the lovely press people who organise the Ideal Home Show myself and Catherine were given press passes to this wonderful event. There were many great sights and despite missing the opening day the show remained in full swing right until the last-minute of the day and I am sure until the closing day.

Once we crossed the threshold we headed to the press office to collect our passes and get going.

My question really was ‘how many times can you get BLOG A BOOK ETC wrong?! Not exactly the picture of prepared for someone who you know is showing up. The kicker was that Catherine’s who they claimed was my +1 was on the side waiting neatly written out and they ‘couldn’t find it’. After this debacle we giggled for a while after this.

Now the next set of pictures will be favourites picked from the many traders that were showing the day I attended. There were so many traders and it was almost impossible (for my memory card anyway!) to take pictures of everything!

Good right?!

Floral Headpieces

These great headpieces I can imagine being worn at many festivals – how cute are they!

Bits & Bobs

From cute to tasty . . .

Did anyone go to the show and if so I would love to hear what you thought about it – if there were any favourites at all?
