Merry Christmas all! I haven't done a Christmas post this year, we had a quiet day; we opened our presents in the morning, then went to my Aunty's for Christmas lunch (amaaaaazing lunch, so yummy!), then we opened more presents and watched some Christmas TV, then drove home in time for Doctor Who!
Today we're just having a day at home lazing around watching films and eating chocolate, but we did get up pretty early and go for a nice walk in Hurtwood Forest to walk off our croissant-filled breakfast. I treated myself to a new prime lens recently, and I'll be upgrading my DSLR to the D5200, on next pay-day, and for Christmas my parents gave me a new zoom news, so this Christmas has been pretty camera-filled! I thought the walk would be the perfect chance to test out the new prime, it's a 50mm manual focus, and it's not reeeeally meant for my current camera, but it still worked pretty well and will be even better with the new camera!
Our walk was rather foggy, it felt a bit like a horror film at times, and we came across quite a few fallen trees on the path so we had to climb under/over them - Dylan absolutely loved it and had a great time!
The forest really was eerie with all of the fog, scary!
Such a dapper dog wearing his very own doggy bow-tie! It does have a habit of twisting around to the side though instead of staying at the front. His red polka dot collar was kindly sent to him from PetsPyjamas for his birthday back in September.
I hate wellies, so I wore my trust Timberland waterproof boots. They're literally the best boots ever, when clean they can be worn in the city (my colleague thought they were Zara!), but they're also perfect for stomping around in in the rain and snow as they've got a really thick 'walking boot' tread, and are completely waterproof!
I hope you've all had a really wonderful week filled with family and friends.
