A Very Busy Christmas.

As you might have been able to tell from the lack of posting this month, Christmas has been really busy. As in, so busy I've been waking up at 6am for work, going to work, finishing work at 6pm, going to an event, getting home at 1am, then doing it all again the next day...for pretty much the past two months. I'm now ill, and feel as though I'm burning out. Party season has been full on this year, so I'm very excited about having five days off next week to rest and recover! I'm literally just going to sleep the whole time and watch movies all day every day!

I covered some of it in my December Instagram Updates and on Dayre, but here's all of it in one place! 

This month has featured a lot of social and work events, and also a lot of food! I'm too scared to find out how much weight I've gained, but I've basically eaten out at least 3 times a week for the past month. My bank balance does not like me right now. 

How cute are these mince pies in Gail's?! I didn't buy them because I'm not a fan of that type of icing, but they were so cute and I loved the label so had to take a photo. "One for Santa eight for me" - sounds about right!

The eggs benny below was from our team night out to VQ. Ahmagad, so yummy!

Mandatory Christmas cupcake from Hummingbird bakery. The one good thing about us moving offices is that we've moved closer to Hummingbird. Although maybe it isn't such a good thing as I'm in there way too much.... :/

The biscuits below are the most amazing homemade ginger biscuits baked by one of my colleagues. I literally couldn't stop eating them! So moreish! 

This month has also been filled with drinks and parties, the best was definitely Arabella's. Her and her housemates all made loads of cakes and these awesome gingerbread houses!!! 

 My favourite part of Christmas is getting the tree. It's a tradition for us all to go and get it together, and then to go to Bockett's Farm for a hot chocolate and slice of mars bar cake in the tearooms there. We've been doing it for about 10 years and it doesn't matter how old we get, my brother and I always ask to go there after getting the tree!

We also had the young members Christmas dinner at the Royal Overseas League. I say this every year, but they do do a good Christmas tree.

This is our Christmas tree, there's nothing better than the smell of a real Christmas tree to get you in the festive spirit!

Dylan thought he'd help out with the decorating...

And of course what is Christmas time without the Christmas films?!

I took Dylan for a walk, and on the way he was all happy and enthusiastic, and then on the way back he got in a bit of a sulk and wouldn't stay in the footwell or even look at me...

I also had the Christmas Ball of course which I blogged about last week, and after the Christmas Ball I went up to Wales for the weekend for my god-daughter's birthday and to see my grandma. I had such a lovely weekend, it was great to spend a day with my god-daughter, best friend and her hubby, we went to Winter Wonderland in Chester and had great fun. It was freezing cold and raining though, so we all have colds now! Thankfully I got back to my grandmas that evening to homemade burgers and strictly, so that made me feel better and warmed me up!

This is probably one of the best Christmas cards I've ever had. This is Hope the dog, she's my clients' dachshund, and I love her, she's such a cutie!

I can't believe it's only 2 days until Christmas, it seems like yesterday I was opening the first door of my advent calendar! This year has been a bit rubbish, and I haven't done any of the things I told myself I would do at the end of last year, so I'm hoping 2014 will be a bit better and have some fresh exciting new starts, and next Christmas will be a bit more positive and cheery.
