Christmas and New Year…

Hello Everyone!! and Happy New Year… a Very Very Happy New Year!!!

I have really enjoyed reading so many of your festive posts and many more from beauty bloggers and fashion bloggers and lifestyle bloggers … etc! I actually feel quite bad for not posting anything on my blog, but have been fairly active on Instagram. I visited home for the holidays, where there is no WiFi. So, anytime that I spent in the pub or a cafe, I tried to catch up on Twitter and upload a couple of pics to Insta, while also trying to be social with my friends and family!

Anyway, I have had a great Christmas and an even better New Year (exciting news coming up!!). Just before Christmas every year, a catch up / secret Santa / meal is organised with all my school friends – in my home town. This year there was 13 of us, and I really enjoyed catching up with the girls – most of us have moved away now, so it’s always great when we’re all back in town. What I love about this photo is that when I proposed we take a photo – we automatically assembled like this – very tidy and choir-like, which just proves our full-on Welsh background, I feel!

My Christmas day was filled with drinks, food, presents, family and friends. So this was fabulous, as usual. Sadly, I was unable to spend the day with my boyfriend of 8 years, Anthony, as he had to work all day, so was unable to visit family with me. But I had a great time over Christmas day and Boxing day with my dad and brother, my mum and my brother and his little family, here you can see my dad and brothers playing with their new toys (my nephew’s new toys actually)!!

Back to my house and my boyfriend for NYE and we decided to stay in – in the 8 years we have been together, this is the first time we have both had it off work, so we spent it alone, together. As we don’t have TV connection in our house (it’s not as bad as it sounds!) we spent the WHOLE evening watching Breaking Bad – which was ridiculously exciting! and come 11:55 we popped on the internet to catch the countdown and to my genuine surprise, HE PROPOSED!!! seconds after midnight!  Of course I said YES! and here is my gorgeous engagement ring.

In other news, the week before Christmas I graduated from my MSc Marketing course with a DISTINCTION! I was simply over the moon when I saw my grade for the first time and have never felt such a sense of achievement as I did at that moment! My graduation was a great day, with my Nanna and my Mum visiting and Anthony came along too, and I’m quite happy for these pictures to be up on the wall (when they finally arrive in the post!)
