My Christmas

Hello all! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and if you didn't..well...there's always next year. Everyone is due a shit Christmas at some point in their life.  My friend had a memorable Christmas one year whereby she ate the total sum of 4 Pringles as unfortunately her marriage imploded on that day.  I had a rubbish one (circa 1997) when I had a row with my
ex-boyfriend in our flat - alarm bells did start ringing the moment we set up home. Anyhow, to cut a long story short we had a huge row after another incident of him drinking himself stupid on Christmas Eve which carried on into Christmas Day. I ended up driving to my parents and then driving back as my idiot boyfriend was threatening to commit suicide - when I did reach our flat he was sitting on the floor in his boxers, munching snacks and watching the DVD box set I'd bought him.

I've had a good Christmas this year which is quite apparent by my bathroom scales, which, I have not stepped on since the day after Boxing Day.  I had put on 4lbs up to that point - I'm hoping its stabilised as I haven't been back on them since. I did Wii Dance this morning for 10 songs which made me feel better and most of the treats are now gone and it'll be soup tonight. 

The Goose naturally from Aldi - £20 and tasted just fine
I had some lovely presents including The John Lennon Letters book which I've even managed to read 50 pages of and a guide to Las Vegas - whoop whoop we plan on going for my 40th so I am very excited about that. 

This jumper was £16 from peacocks and was a bit snug I have to say - still I wore it Xmas Eve to much ridicule on facebook and the like

Kids mince pie making
My retro Xmas cake I made - just like your nan would have made - it was sadly a tad dry - shit recipe of course!

Xmas muffins made for the teachers
The weather here is so rubbish its been raining or drizzling nothing much in between so getting out has been a tad difficult.  I hope you all have a Happy New Year and see you for the next installment of The 1970's Diet....
Happy New Year!



  1. Fab pic of you in your jumper! We had our shit Christmas this year. Husband and I turn 40 next year too. New York was mentioned a couple of years ago. As it gets closer we are thinking more along the lines of a party in a local pub!

    1. Hi, sorry to hear you had a rubbish one - there's a lot of sickness about. There's so much pressure for it to be magical too - I have no expectations at Xmas I find they turn out much better that way. Yes there is a lot involved with getting away but I reckon it'll be worth it! x

  2. Happy new year to you my love, I think the jumper is just fab! Mich x

    1. Thank you my lovely isn't it just! And Happy New Year to you and your family xx
