christmas hopes.

devon christmas tree

I always find that at Christmas, I end up thinking about the people I've lost. We lost Grandad a few days before Christmas 11 years ago, and earlier this year Granny followed him. It's going to be really strange not having her around on the big day, but I think it's important to try and have a fun time surrounded by all the lovely people we have left. 

With that in mind, these are the things I'm looking forward to this year..

1 week / 3 gigs.



I don't know if you remember my post back in August about planning to go to live music. Well, I somehow managed to organise going to 3 gigs all in the same week! In hindsight, it probably would've been nicer to spread them out a bit, but sometimes you just have to take the opportunity to have some musical fun!

john lewis christmas decorations.




This year I bought my very first Christmas tree. Look at it! It's so tiny, it's so "being little".. but I needed some bits and bobs to decorate it, as well as a few extras to make the rest of the room look Christmassy.

card nest + 50% off!



Subscription boxes and the like are familiar to us all now, but a concept I hadn't come across before is what CardNest are doing. Each month, they send you 3 cards that will not be found on the high street, as well as 3 first class stamps. Y'know when it's someone's birthday and you start panicking because you haven't got them a card? That'll never ever happen again.

CardNest's mission is to get us all to start writing to each other again. I love that. 

I know how special I feel when someone posts me a card, so why not spread that joy?

4 things i'm loving.



So, it's December. The time of year that you should be buying lots of gifts for your loved ones... but sometimes you just have to treat yourself too. We deserve it! Here are a few bits and bobs I've recently bought and fallen in love with.
