Getting ready for Christmas

My Button

I cannot believe how quickly two weeks has gone by. I remembered I had my nails painted and my hair plaited not long ago as part of my #getgroovingchallenge and now I am back to my normal self, meaning not making much effort at all in how I look and feel. Part of me feel glad Kate’s #groovingmums is there to remind me how easily I get caught up making baby purée and changing nappies, I forget about just being me.

1) I have a Christmas Cracker party coming up this Friday, where we are suppose to dress formal. I am going to spare an hour for myself to get ready instead of just appear undone in the party. I am going to curl my hair at least as well as wear my long forgotten heels.

2) I have a voucher for an express manicure and I am going to use it somehow by asking for an hour of baby-sitting from my OH.

3) It is almost time to send off Christmas Card to family and friends. (And buy present for a friend who always care so much about me. I want to give something back.)

4) I have an idea about scanning my mum’s old photo as part of my #groovingmums effort. My mum in her late twenties was certainly much more trendy in her time than I am now in mine. She used to wear matching handbags and heels! It might be a bit OTT to wear matching items in today’s fashion, but it could motivate me maybe? (Mum, if you read this, could you please remind me about scanning your old photos.)

Kate’s question What health aims do you have for the New Year?
Keep flossing my teeth, make an effort to include fruits and veg in my every day’s meal, stay active and keep grooving.

That’s it for now.

(I did curl my hair and wear my heel as well as painted some glitters on my nails! Note to self: Must do this more often and get a pair of black colour heels to wear with black tights in future.)

    Enjoy your Christmas Cracker party. It’s lovely to have something to dress up for. I think one of my goals for next week may be to just dress up for the sake of it 🙂 x
