Blooming El



Good morning and happy hump day! I've just had THE most amazing shower. You know when you wake up and just know you'll have to jump straight in the shower because it's so damn cold? Well that's what I did this morning and now I feel all warm and soft, and I smell like oranges (yaaas Sanctuary Spa). 

Anyho, shall we get on with it?

Mother and Daughter Day

I was lucky enough to be given Monday off of work. I spent the morning cleaning and tidying, then joined my Mum on her Christmas shopping spree.

It's been a while since we've spent a day together and I rather enjoyed myself. 

Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

I told myself I wasn't going to join in on the hype. I ignored the tweets on my time line. I tried to convince myself that I was a grown adult and I didn't need to relive my teenage years spent playing on my pink Nintendo.

However, on Sunday evening, I gave in and downloaded Animal Crossing Pocket Camp and now I've found myself in a pocket camp hole and to be honest, I'm loving life. I mean who doesn't love catching fish, collecting shells, and giving away peaches to animals you've just met?

Glorious Skies

Driving home from Bury St Edmunds on Saturday was a treat for the eyes. The sun, slowly sinking into the vast green fields, painting the sky a glorious mix of orange, red, and yellow tones.

I really wanted to pull over and snap a quick picture but do you think I could find a suitable place to stop?

Finding my festive spirit

I haven't really felt in the festive mood this year. I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting older or if it's because this time last year I lost my wonderful Nan, who absolutely adored Christmas. 

A few months ago I was adamant I just wanted to stay in my pyjamas on Christmas day and eat pizza but after receiving my book advent calendar, picking up a few presents, and seeking table decorations with my Mum, I feel like my festive spirit is slowly creeping up on me. 

That's all from me this week but the wonderful lists don't stop there! Don't forget to see what's been making the rest of the wonder women* smile this week and if you want to join in yourself, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
