Good Morning! Have you had a good weekend? I have had a lovely weekend, but now I am sick and seriously struggling through this morning. I am powering through as I have so much to do today, so I am stocking up on caffeine (no christmas pun intended!). I feel like I haven’t stopped since Thursday lunch. I spent Thursday afternoon in the car on route to London for a double consecutive photo booth booking. I went straight to London Zoo to set up for the Christmas party in the Mappin Pavilion at the Zoo for the evening, before heading to my friend, Hatty’s, after to crash on her sofa for the night. I couldn’t leave the house on Friday as Hatty couldn’t leave me her keys when she went to work, so I was locked in her house for the day until I had to go back to London Zoo for the second Christmas party in as many days. Both Christmas parties with the Photo Booth went brilliantly and were really popular (you can see the photos here!) and then I had a late night drive back on Friday night. You can watch day four and five of Vlogmas nelow…

After being away for 2 days, I came back to Brad at the peak of his man-flu, and Jamie the lodger being drunk sick in the toilet (what a welcome home!). Brad was totally bunged up and had to go out to the 24hr shop to get some sudafed to clear his sinuses. So whilst the house was awake anyway, I edited the photos from the night and it was 3am before we got to bed. Clearly burning the candle at both hands and being to close the the sick boy, I have caught it! Boo!
It was totally forgotten about when Fenner and Rob turned up Saturday lunch time. I was so excited to have my best friend to stay so close to Christmas and looking forward to spending the weekend making merry. We took a walk down to Banco Lounge and spent the afternoon drinking mulled cider (with a shot of rum) and eating yummy food. I was so silly and totally forgot to take my camera, which I was gutted about because it was SOOOOOO festive in Banco lounge and would have made for such a great little video, so I am going to have to go back and drink more mulled cider (what a shame!) to show you how lovely it is down there.
We did our usual Sunday activities, walking up at Leigh Woods, with the dogs. We stopped at the cottage on the way home for (the best) onion rings and a pint before we had to say good by to our guests. By that point yesterday I was feel super ill, and tiered so I had a nap on the sofa to re coup a little. I was so tempted to stay in the warm, but we had planned to go and see the fireworks at Clifton Suspension bridge for it’s 150th anniversary. I crawled off the sofa and put on my fur coat, my scarf and hat and wrapped up warm and headed (back) to the cottage on the Harbour to get our seat for the firework display. We even took blankets and a beer to keep us warm. It was such an amazing display, we were so impressed and so glad we went to see it. There will be more Vlogmas videos coming soon.
