Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animals!

So, it's finally here. After the weeks of stressful shopping, fretting because your wrapping isn't as neat as it could be, preparing food more than 24 hours before you're going to be eating it, home baking that doesn't look a thing like the photos in the recipe books and buying a little more alcohol than strictly necessary, it's Christmas Eve.

As I write this I'm sat with my two lovely friends and we're watching Muppets Christmas Carol whilst munching on the only stuff in the house which isn't being saved for Christmas Day (fish fingers and potato bites, how festive!) and I can honestly say I'm pretty content. Yes, I have no money left. Yes, my fiance and his best friend have abandoned us to go fishing (honestly!?) and yes, I won't be seeing my immediate family on Christmas Day itself, but this year has been pretty amazing. Relocating to be with the man I love has proved very rewarding. We've added three little kittens to our family, and on Saturday we're getting a dog to complete our family...for now! (Her name is Isla and she's a beagle, but more about that on Saturday!)

Finally, I began this blog. It's been an idea in my head for some time now, but I'm glad I've taken the plunge and finally done it. Yes, I've been rubbish at organising posts and my posting is quite sporadic, but this creative outlet is definitely something I've needed for a while. The excitement to write has returned, and the sense of accomplishment seeing the final, published features is what I thrive on. I adore writing. I've also met some really lovely people through doing this already, so thank you for being such a lovely community.

I'll be writing one last post of 2014 on Saturday when Isla joins us, but for now, Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you all have a wonderful time, and enjoy yourselves!
