Why hello there lovely readers. Are you gearing up for Christmas? You may have seen a little gift guide on Friday to get you in the spirit and of course give you a few ideas too. I had a rare few hours off yesterday to hit the shops with G, which was really lovely. Not many presents were bought but I’ve made a start and we have some more ideas in the bag. I may have eyed up a Jo Malone scent for my own wish list though, oops. It’s been pretty hectic at home with our living room currently resembling a building site. Our builder has been busy transforming the fireplace ready for a new stove and new radiators are going in today. Stay tuned on Instagram and my personal account for a sneaky peek! I think our renovation by Christmas deadline is doing to be pushed back, but hey ho, we’ll get there in the new year instead. I’m hoping for a relaxing and festive weekend with the boys, of course around the obiligatory party and football schedule. Plus we are actually heading into town with some friends, yippee.
Back to weddings and what a gorgeous week it’s been. I have had the pleasure of featuring some very splendid wedding stories, pop over to the real wedding section to see them in all their glory. Here is my top list of weddings from the week that was…
