I was inspired by some other blogs for some close ups of my decorations, so skip to the bottom if you want to read about my run instead!
I got this moose candle holder from Copenhagen last year- Andy and I went there for 3 days last December for our christmas presents to each other. It is so pretty 🙂
I love the Happy Holidays theme in america- and I also love gingerbread, and Minnie mouse. Andy got this for me one summer from the disney christmas shop.
The Snowman is my ultimate Christmas film, so when I saw these I had to get them. Normally they hang on the tree, but they are heavy and the little branches cannot hold them this year.
This is a tealight holder from Whitards. When there is a candle in it, the light glows from the little holes and it looks so pretty 🙂
Another disney present from Andy- a cute gingerbread Mickey with the disney recipe in it too- bonus 🙂
Ok, now onto the normal stuff!
After work I wrapped up and went out on a 5.7 mile run. I was thinking I would take it easy as my legs were stiff today, but I did it in 54 minutes so I was pretty speedy, not sure what happened! I think the cold is helping! There was fog while I was driving home, and the frost did not melt from the trees all day, so it was quite spooky, but also really beautiful as all the trees looked like they belonged on a card. I was a bit worried that the pavements would be icy, and as I was running there were twinkling bits, but they were fine. Phew. I did see a couple of other runners, which is always nice- I always feel pleased to see other people getting out there (and it proves I am not crazy for going out).
I also got around to icing some of the gingerbread cookies to take into work;
I am hoping to spread the festive cheer, as it is so busy at the moment that no-one is pausing to enjoy the fun stuff.
I might do some wrapping later 🙂 The bottom of the tree is all lonely!
