Mondays Weekend Catch Up!

I always say it but yes, another weekend has flown past and Monday arrived far too quickly for my liking!

The towns Christmas market Friday was lovely and certainly aided my Christmas spirit. My SIL and I particularly enjoyed our churches Festival of Trees consisting of various groups and shops following the theme of their businesses to decorate their trees. Our local book shop did a Twilight theme

but my SIL’s favourite was the Road Safety groups “Road Safe-tree”

Everyone put in such effort!

After our hog roast I joined a friend for hot chocolate – yum!!!

As I’d already mentioned Saturday was my friends wedding which was a lovely day

Doesn’t the bride look gorgeous?

Unfortunately my champagne excesses meant my plans Sunday changed somewhat! I had managed to get tickets for X Factor but it required getting up bright and early to queue ensuring entry and unfortunately sleep became more of a priority!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this week shall be a little quieter and I can get round to writing my Christmas cards before I miss the last postal dates!

Pin It Now!


  1. LOL! When I clicked over to your blog I thought.. This looks like Happy Loves Rosie!! And then I scrolled down and saw who fabbed up your design:) Just gorgeous!

  2. That's such a shame about the x factor....bad Victoria..hehehe!! Love your t-shirt, looks much better on you then in the catalogue. I need to write my cards too....hate doing that :) x

  3. I can't believe you didn't go to the X-factor you mad woman... but then weddings and me always end up with a lost day or two...
    And of course, you looked gorgeous!

    Ooooh and thank you oodles for the Puttery Treats sign up: as always I couldn't appreciate it more!

    Lots of love

  4. The bride does indeed look gorgeous, but hey, you don't scrub up too badly either! Love those shoes! At least you got the wow factor if not the X Factor.

  5. Victoria, you lucky devil tickets to the X factor, ah well. The bride look fab, as did you. Funny how things pan out, happy card writing, mine are all done and dusted xx

  6. Yes the bride does look stunning, but you look good in that CK Christmas T-shirt too. It's fab!

  7. I got tickets for X Factor as well, on the Saturday night but unfortunately couldn't go as I still had the chest infection thing, and as we were told to queue up from lunchtime I didn't think it would do me much good to stand in the cold all day :-( never mind, maybe next year!

  10. The weekend flew by for me too! But then...another one is on its way! Your friend looked quite lovely indeed!

  11. Hi Victoria - sounds like a busy old weekend! I love love love the pink shoes you wore to your friend's wedding - they're gorgeous! x

  12. at least you admit to quaffing back the champers and needing serious kip afterwards!

    The bride looks gorgeous. It's our anniversary tomorrow. 5 years. I keep forgetting! ha ha ha.

    Crikey to not going to the X factor,but I have to admit that I didn't watch it on Sunday. I wanted to watch the Delia programme in full,so put that on instead.


  13. Love the christmas tee. And yes the bride does look gorgeous, as do you my dear - love your dress xx

  14. I agree Victoria Monday does come way too quickly. I wish we had a 4 day work week and a 3 day weekend! Looks like you had fun!

  15. LOL...Been there done that.I'm sure you will make the next one.
    The bride is gorgeous and so are you.
    I want to wish you the merriest of Christmases and all the joy this season has to bring,
    XXOO Marie Antionette

  16. glad to see you actually got a picture with the bride in... unlike ME! lol

    You have to put your pics on FB so I can nick one with lisa in and at least pretend I took some that weren't just of us!
