It’s official December is tomorrow! I am so excited

My Elf on a Shelf has arrived for the month of festive fun and I cannot wait to see what he gets up to!
I’ll be posting a photo every day to go along with my Photo a day December challenge

Medicated Morning

After avoiding everyone’s colds the last few weeks, it finally got me today 😦
I can’t afford to be ill as I have so much going on this week, but I think I have to admit defeat and just accept I may be out of action for a few days 😦
At least my sister brought me some medication…. I was already taking the Lemsip but she said I needed water and Guaifenesin 🤔

Happy Birthday Helen

Today is Helen’s birthday 🙂 to celebrate she’s away with her boyfriend Liam for a few days.
I feel really lucky to have Helen in my life. Helen is like a “dual-position person”; Friend and ‘sister’. She is really chill, really logical and we can talk about pretty much anything. She’s a brilliant listener and I am her “go to” person. I don’t tell her but I consider her to be one of my best friends 🙂
It’s really nice for me that I get along so well with Rich’s family, it helps that Helen is awesome! 🙂

Day for a Date

Monday was better than Sunday, well in the evening anyway. Work was a stead flow of patients all day, but we managed to get out of work on time.
Rich and I went for dinner and had a really nice evening together ❤ After the weekend, I think we needed a nice date night. We got to talk a lot and I’m excited for our first Christmas together and all the little bits and traditions we will start (I think he’s excited about them too ❤ ❤ ❤ )

I cannot believe it is December at the end of this week and I can’t wait!

-1° and comfort cake

I’m not going to lie, today has not been great….and it all started at -1° this morning on the way to work. Things didn’t exactly go according to plan but it did mean finishing slightly earlier than expected.
The rest of the day was, yeah not ideal …. so as this blog got its picture and was ready to be uploaded, I comfort ate a slice of Christmas cake. I did question if eating cake at half 11 at night was a bad thing, but then I remembered; this wasn’t just any cake… was individually sliced, fruit filled, icing topped M&S Christmas cake- so perfectly normal! 🤔

Colin the Caterpillar

Today we had Caterpillar chocolate cake from M&S because it is Helen’s birthday on Tuesday 🙂 Tonight will be the last time we are all together for a meal before then because Helen is going away from Sunday till Wednesday; It’s a surprise trip organised by her boyfriend Liam for her birthday (Awh so cute! Brownie points for Liam!)
