Yesterday was my last day in work, and so today I'm beginning a lovely long (and much deserved!) break of just over two weeks. The last few weeks have been manic, as I'm sure they have been for many of you too. I had a PhD report to submit, an article to write for In Retrospect magazine, on top of the day job, Christmas shopping, and trying to squeeze in a bit of sewing. I've been to three Christmas parties and a Christmas concert, as well as hosting a lunch and a Christmas party. There have been some fabulous, yet undocumented outfits, which means I'll have to wear them again over the holidays and take lots of photographs to share with you. In the meantime, these snaps from Instagram will have to do.
My plans for Christmas itself aren't too hectic. We have a couple of days out over the weekend to see friends and family, but Christmas Day will be a quiet, relaxing affair with just my husband and I. We'll fire up the woodburning stove, make a few cocktails, and dress up to the nines.
