I'm gonna miss this little tree when Christmas is over! 

 I swear next year I'm just dumping everything in gift bags, wrapping is the worst chore! Although I'm happy I managed to get this done without spending too much and I think it looks kinda cute. Brown paper costs nothing and this year I waited til last minute to get all the ribbon and things, I usually rush to get it as soon as December hits and it costs a fortune. But it all goes half price just before the big day so I got them all cheaply, CLEVER ME!
I don't know what to wear tomorrow, Christmas Day for me isn't really a time to dress up...if anything it's an excuse to slob out in my comfiest jimjams (as if I needed an excuse!) But I'll definitely have the Crimbo socks on, these were a present from my friend and they're perfect! Christmas doggies, what could be better?

Finally here is my actual Christmas doggy, he's feeling better now I think. It's hard to leave presents under the tree because he thinks they're all for him but he'll get his own tomorrow's a bit of a liberty really because he never bloody buys me anything! Today is actually a month til his birthday, he'll get more presents then. And presents in April to mark the day we got him. And presents in between, every week, just because. Everyday is Christmas for this dog!

Well Merry Christmas from me and Freddy! Hope you have lovely days, whether you celebrate it or not you'll probably have a day off work which is always good!  (If not, er, sorry. Poor you.)

  14. Merry Xmas darling and to little doggy too :3 xx

  15. Merry Christmas to you Josie and I hope you had a wonderful boxing day too! Your little tree is so cute :) if it were me I'd keep it up all year round!! I agree with you on Christmas being a day to slob out in comfy PJs - I certainly did that for the majority of the day, and even when I got dressed it was into jeans and a comfy no hassle breton. Your wrapping is so sweet, I love that you went to the effort of stamping each person's name on! I was so fed up of wrapping by the time I'd finished I swore I'd just buy gift bags next year too haha. I'm so glad Freddy is feeling better now lovely, and I hope he enjoyed Christmas too! Lucky Freddy having his birthday after Christmas, I always think after all the excitement of Christmas and New Year it's a little bit sad when it's all over and there's nothing to look forward to (a great excuse to book a holiday if we weren't all so poor afterwards I'd say!) xxx
