|Our Anna (14) and Rosa (1 week)|
3. I got my nails done this week for Christmas and I've been sneaking admiring glances at them ever since. You likey? They even stood up to making pastry, and I'm pleased to report that they survived the ordeal unscathed... which is just as well really, cos let's face it, no one wants a diamante bow in their mince pie.
4. Its been a week of lists, which I work my way through, then score out (or actually delete off my phone). The problem is that as quick as I 'make mincepies', 'write cards', 'wrap presents', it's deleted and instantly replaced with something else. Today it's 'do Tesco shop','research city break', (sadly not for me) 'write blogpost', 'make pasta dish', 'shave legs'. And I'm writing this first, obvs, so the legs may or may not make the cut, so to speak, if you will.
5. Finally, in the midst of all the madness here's a little musical treat for you. It's my very favourite Christmas carol, and almost five years ago my sister Mary (baby Rosa's mammy) sang it had her own wedding. Imagine that! It was so very special, absolutely beautiful (as was she), and I'll always remember it as one of 'those moments'. Unfortunately, I don't have footage of her singing, but here's the next best thing- the Celtic so enjoy!
Finally, finally, a very Happy Christmas to you all, my lovelies, wherever you are and whoever you're with, I really hope it's a great one. Much love, Emma xx
