December, December, December... You have come around far too quickly and I honestly do not know where this year has gone. It seems like only yesterday that we were all sat around the Christmas tree opening up gifts last year!!  Like My Facebook Page Follow Me On Twitter Follow Me On Instagram Follow this blog with Bloglovin' Add Me On Google Plus Add Me On Pinterest

It's about this time of year when I begin to look back and think what I've achieved or done during the year, however the honest and quite blunt answer is not a fat lot. Although there is one big change this year in that I'll be spending Christmas with my FiancĂ© in our first home together! Although it's going to feel a little lonely for me with just the two of us, compared to previously living with 5 other people I'm very excited to start making it feel all cosy and festive! I'm also hoping that we will be able to adopt a couple of the kittens from my parents to bring into our home - but we will see on that one as we are yet to ask our Landlady about having pets in the house *fingers crossed*!

The point of today's post is that its the 1st of December, and as I would love to take part in Blogmas, but can't seem to find anywhere that has a list of topics/post ideas I'm going to attempt to go it alone with my own ideas! What better way to kick this off than with a post on the 1st December about all the things I love about December? 

❆ Christmas shutdown - time off work!
❆ Gift shopping for family & friends!

  3. I love these photo's especially the top one, so christmassy.
    I agree this last year has just flown and I feel like its been a meh year, nothing that exciting happened for me anyway. Christmas with your fiance will be lovely.
    I hope your land lady says yes about the kittens, she should, they are usually more strict in a flat.
    I'm going to be looking forward to watching all the xmas films and the eating my body weight in quality street and mince pies.
