Closing up on Christmas.

Christmas Pictures # 3

So Christmas has finally started to wind down; my mother is back at work and James and I are once again sat at our respective books studying.  It is always a little sad when the magic finally starts to wear off and the guilt-free-cocoon of Christmas is no longer an excuse to do nothing but sit and eat and read.  But that said, I am still at the family home for a couple more days, the fire is lit and my toes are toasty, so I'm not quite done yet!  

Christmas Pictures #4

Although as I write this my younger brother and step-sister (who is more than eight years my junior) have just rolled in, bleary-eyed and muddy, from some all-night field rave-thing.  I can honestly say I have never felt quite so middle-aged.  I think I might put my hot water bottle down now and go to the pub to reclaim my youth...

(or just snuggle a little deeper into this blanket.  I mean, who am I really kidding?)


  1. Totally the blanket! Haha. I like to stay home and get all cozy. But well, I'm an old lady by heart and I'm proud of it!

    1. Haha, I think you do have to embrace it if you want to maintain dignity whilst falling asleep on the sofa... before 9pm....!

  2. Christmas came and went so quickly!! I can't believe it's already a new year.

    I'm glad I came across your blog. I'm now your newest follower via greader. :)

    1. Awwh, lovely to meet you! I have your blog up on my computer right now - it is such a lovely and calm space, your 'I believe' post is just wonderful.
