I’m afraid this post is going to be another random collection of photos of things I’ve been up to recently and a bit of a brain dump…
I’m sure you’re probably sick of photos of people’s Christmas trees but I’m adding mine into the mix…
However, the best post I’ve had recently was this amazing package from my lovely blogger friend across the pond in Arizona, Nina. I literally nearly cried when I opened it. She sent Huxley a tiny red jumper from her favourite hotel in San Diego and she sent me some lovely beauty goodies.
Matalan kindly sent me a £50 voucher to spend in store recently so once I’d seen the doctor and had been given the okay to drive again, I knew my first outing alone would have to be there. I had so much fun browsing the shop as I hadn’t been there in years. I tried on loads of outfits for myself, but post-natal shopping is a bit scary and I couldn’t find anything that looked right on my new figure. Naturally the next area of the store I headed to was the baby clothing where I found some really adorable white and grey baby grows for little Hux. Then I spied the DVD section – who knew Matalan sold DVDs? They were really well priced so I ended up bringing home Despicable Me 2, the new Eddie Izzard stand-up and the amazing Django Unchained. Then I picked up some new super cosy socks for me and a big box of chocolates. Everything you need for a perfect winter’s night in!
On Saturday my lovely friend Kat had organised a Christmas meal for all of us. We went to Geneve in Westbourne as they do awesome burgers and I’d been craving a proper burger the whole time I was pregnant. We went for lunch rather than dinner because of Huxley. It was everything I’d dreamed of. Maple bacon and avocado. Chilli cheese fries. Perfect. Also, little did we know that while we were tucking in, Jack Black was just round the corner in the chip shop!
We also went to Westbourne during the week to visit the new JoJo Maman Bebe store that has opened. It’s so new and shiny. This was followed by a walk into Bournemouth to buy Huxley his first ever pair of shoes, some little Nikes to match his Dad’s. While we were there we wandered into the gardens to see the light displays. It was pretty cool.
Yesterday we went to my Nan’s for an early Christmas as she won’t be here on the day. It was so much fun. Roast dinner, card games, Cadbury’s Roses. Huxley wore his Christmas jumper and we had our first ever family photo taken.
