I sometimes can’t believe how much time flies and I was shocked to realise this morning that I have been blogging for about 11 years this year! I started back in 2007 when I wrote a blog about local places to go for a dog walk and I loved it from the very first time I hit “publish”.
One of my favourite bits of blogging is showing people photos of where I’ve been, especially trips away. That’s why I am hoping Father🎅Christmas will be kind enough to bring me this FAB mirrorless camera from Panasonic this year. I’ve had other cameras in the past, but as you can see from these photos in Harrogate from a couple of years ago, they aren’t the best quality.
I am also sneakily hoping for a trip back to Harrogate again this year and as my overnight bag is at least 100 years old, I have had my eye on a fab Spotty backpack from Asos and then of course for full movie watching comfort I would love a new cover for my ipad, maybe I can persuade M to visit the Apple store?! 😀 Although you never know if we DO go to Harrogate, I might be tempted into Space NK for a little beauty treat.
Going away before Christmas has become a little tradition for us over the last few years as it’s a great way to wind down from the work year before the hoopla of Christmas begins. Harrogate has also been a great choice for as as it has some really fantastic luxury shops that we just don’t have near where we live.
A gorgeous hotel, some lovely photos, a nice cup of Betty’s tea and maybe the odd dairy free cake and I am pretty much in heaven.
Do you have any Christmas traditions or are you even feeling Christmassy yet? I am really starting to AND my decorations are going up a week on Saturday, 8 days to go – not that I am counting!
p.s. don’t tell anyone, but although my official decorations are going up on the 1st December, I have already sneaked some into the house already…
