My week in pictures #202

Tuesday, December 27

(From top left) Churros at the Christmas market on Monday. Trying to fit as much gym time in before going home for the holidays. Healthy food from mum and dad when I got home for Christmas. Finally we saw Fantastic Beasts - it was well worth the wait. Potsticker dumplings are a Christmas eve tradition on our house. A festive looking Orange, chocolate and mascarpone tart for Christmas day. 
This last week I've basically been trying to be as festive as possible in the run up to the big day. After getting back to Aberdeen on Monday my flatmate and I went to the Christmas market and I was able to get a few things for her Christmas. On Tuesday I went into town again to help my friend Jack with his Christmas shopping. In the evening my flatmate and I watched 'A Royal Christmas' on netflix and swapped Christmas presents.

I was so looking forward to Wednesday, and even though my parents didn't come up to Aberdeen, I was still excited to go home. I managed to fit in a swim in the morning and a stack of other little jobs as well as packing. Then I hauled my big case into town on the bus to meet Scott. Going home for Christmas is the best feeling. 

On Thursday mum and I planned a little shopping trip (we didn't buy anything) before meeting my dad and going to see Fantastic Beasts in the cinema. It was so worth the wait (to find time to see it together) and I can't wait to see it again. Friday was spent getting my hair cut - it feels so short now - picking up a few bits in town before going to meet Scott. We (stupidly) went out for one drink which ended in a late night and few memories. It was fun though!

On Christmas eve we had a very long lie and a lazy morning watching Bruce Almighty. I then had to go home to help with Christmas day prep and wrap my presents. My bedtime I was knackered and crashed straight away. 

Christmas day was lovely, we had my aunt and uncle, my cousin and his girlfriend and baby sophie too. Seeing her open presents, love my dad's homemade bread, laugh when we were laughing really made Christmas day. I was spoilt too but I can save that for a new post later in the week. For today (Tuesday) I'm going to catch up on blogging jobs, stay in my jammies as long as I can and sit beside the fire. 

Why not give me a follow on Instagram to keep up to date with what I'm doing.

This week on G is for Gingers: How to Live a More Hygge Lifestyle with Bed Guru

Incase you didn't notice I started a giveaway on Friday - no one has entered yet though! Maybe starting one just before Christmas was maybe a silly idea.
