Monday Sunshine + Vogue Subscription Giveaway....

....bearing in mind that my motto this year is "focus, breathe and enjoy" during the Christmas season, 
several hours spent shopping with the crowds this morning was a challenge to say the least!

Most of my shopping is done thankfully....
because I won't be in a hurry to repeat this morning :)
There is not much Christmas spirit to be found in queuing at a checkout!

And so....

1 beautifully sunny day in London
5 more days of school
2 trips to the pantomime
30 mince pies to bake for the class party
1 carol concert to attend tonight
1 secret santa gift bought, 1 to buy
1 baby christmas tree to buy for my Dad
2 christmas lunches with friends
10+ gifts to wrap tonight (before little eyes can see....)
1 long christmas food list to write
2 pair of christmas pyjamas bought

Please donate to my Project Generator appeal....
just one pound-dollar-euro helps so much, more than you can even imagine....

so far I have raised 63% of my goal amount of USD$800/£511 which is incredible!!
a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far.....

I am guest-posting about my Christmas thoughts over here - come and see me!


  1. I would really like a Vogue Subscription. I am a follower.

  2. Hello hello!! OMG parallel lives - I too spent time in the shops today wishing it were over. The people! So stressy!. Where is that Christmas cheer. I now can't see a Starbucks red cup without thinking of you!! Ha.

    I have a similar list to get through before the children break up...only a couple more days. A round of Nativity and Choir things to attend and then, it's all about the build up to the main event! Love this time of year :-)

  3. Thank goodness I have most of my wrapping done! I can breathe again!

    But I do have a big food list to make plus prep, plus make....and then there's the big pans of food going to the lunch for the less fortunate. I should start this list soon!

  4. Dearest Simone,

    Very nobel thought about gift giving! That's the true Christmas spirit of giving. Wishing you a great time leading up to your peaceful Christmas with loved ones.
