Ahh the holidays. The break over Christmas was so desperately needed. They were quiet and gentle and just what we craved after the craziness of 2016. We’d had the builders in for six solid months, the work infiltrated every single room and it left us all feeling slightly misplaced (and totally shattered). Finally things seem to be coming together and now the mammoth task of decorating begins. But before that, two weeks of hibernating: of walks, watching movies at 3pm in our pjs, lazy suppers of leftovers, board games and naps. Total BLISS.
