30 day photo challenge

1.Self-portrait

I hate taking photos of myself so this is my default 'open your eyes really wide and do a funny smile' thing. And it's blurry because the flash makes me squint one eye.

So Christmas was a bit of a weird one. Dave's dad died very suddenly on the 21st and the last week has been a bit of a blur really. It was completely unexpected, he hadn't been ill or anything like that so it was a complete shock. Christmas was a bit rough, but it was as nice as it could be under the circumstances and Dave is doing a little better so there is that to be grateful for. The funeral isn't until January 10th so hopefully that will give everyone a little time to come to terms with it.


There is a little happiness to come from this however. Me and Dave got engaged, so hopefully that provides a little bit of joy to his family at this sad time.

I don't think the UK is somewhere that copes well with snow. That said it's been like 'The Day After Tomorrow' today! Blizzards, freezing winds, staggering through massive flakes of snow. Mental. Still, it makes for some very pretty scenery, something I can appreciate now that I'm not stood at a bus stop losing all feeling in my feet and face.

The tree is up, I have bought most of my presents and I have a decent haul of beer. Let the festive times begin!


festive

Complete with cat. Everyone needs a cat.


I will also be getting all frocked up and wearing heels for our work christmas party. I usually wear jeans. This will not end well.

I found this over on the wonderful Fur Coat No Knickers blog. I can't decide if they are the most awful or brilliant things I have ever seen. I'm going to go with brilliant. I want a pair!

They have loads (including Henry VIII) over here. Brilliant.
