Merry Christmas 2014

Christmas Day is here!!!

For this special day, I wanted to leave you with a picture I took of a scene that was created by a very clever five year old... Amy.  She worked very hard to set up her mum and aunty's old Barbie dolls complete with the dolls house furniture so that there would be a magical setting underneath the Christmas tree.

In my opinion, she was totally and utterly successful.

Merry Christmas all!

12 - Cruise to Fiji

Decoration 12 - my cruise to Fiji

This was my most recent holiday - Sept/Oct 2014.  After a very busy and quite stressful year this was my treat to myself.  I should do a post about this holiday and put up some pics because it was a great time.

It was only mum and I and lots of rest and no pressure to do anything, but we met lots of great people, and already by chance knew some people from a previous holiday - honestly, Australia is just one big community of friends!!!

Only one sleep to go!

11 - I've always found Harrods quite wonderful

Decoration 11 - Harrods 2013

I apologise for the blurry photo.  I don't know that I could ever go to London without a visit to Harrods.  The last time I went, I had a little adventure to get there, but it was definitely worth it.

If it's not wonderful enough by itself, Harrods goes and has a special Christmas section which I believe is all year round (although I have only ever been in Sept/Oct funny enough). I'm so pleased that I have this decoration along with other Harrods decorations I have from previous years.

Two sleeps to go!!

10 - If I went to Hogwarts I know I'd be in Gryffindor

Decoration 10 - Harry Potter Studios London

I'm sure I've already previously said this on here - if you like the HP books and films, and even if by some freakish chance you have never even heard of Harry, Ron, Hermione or JK Rowling... you could still have loads of fun and get tons of enjoyment out of going to the studios just outside of London.

Just like everything to do with the books, it is so very British, very well set out, quite educational and gives you a real insight into the making of the films in which the cast literally grew up in front of our eyes.

Three more sleeps!

9 - Nadolig Llawen

Decoration 9 - Welsh Red Dragon

I didn't get to spend too much time in Wales when I was in the UK, but what I saw of it was stunning. I absolutely love that they have their own language.

Nadolig Llawen! (Merry Christmas!)

Four sleeps to go!
