Gosh it's cold!
For the past week we've woke up to frosty cars and dewy grass. I love when it starts to get colder, everything seems so fresh.
As soon as November comes, that's the start of winter/Christmas, for me anyway! (My hubby hates it!)
We start our Christmas shopping, start planning the month ahead and I get to pull out my winter scarves and drink far too much hot chocolate!
Cold dark days mean cosy times watching films with my boys. We love to get snuggled with the candles lit and big mugs of cocoa! My little ones like an old man, he loves a hot cup of something nice!
I'm not ashamed to say we've already started watching some festive movies. Home alone is one of our faves! I love national lampoons Christmas vacation too.
I really must start thinking about what to get the school teachers? Does anyone else struggle with teacher gifting? Last year we gave her a regular size midori and she loved it! This year, I have no clue what to get?!
I brought some new Christmas lights this year too. I usually go for a very traditional decor but this year I'm planning on doing alittle more vintage/shabby chic, but we shall see! The boys winter linen arrived last week too. They also have some new bedroom furniture on the way which I'm hoping to have up and in full working order before Christmas, but that's another story......!
I kitted my filofax out with winter goodies today too! I like the inside to reflect my mood or season, weird I know but that's what I do!
I'm really loving the pocket size Holborn. The more I use it the softer it gets and the colour is the most perfect red.
I've been using it as a purse and I'm finding it to be the best (why did I never try it before?!) it's so light and compact and has everything in one place. The only thing I'm worried about is if I lose it. My whole life is in that thing!!
I'm slowly adding to my pocket collection as I'm hoping to move to that size full time!
I received my pocket amazona in almond this evening :) it's a beauty! I wanted something similar to the colour of my nude original and as filofax haven't come to their senses yet and made the originals in pocket, I settled for this! I'm so glad I did. It's just lovely. It's not as stiff as I'd thought so I'm very happy :)
Well I'm off for a cuppa!
Have a lovely evening lovey's
