The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday, how are you today?  I love seeing all of the wonderful Christmas tree pictures going up on social media, but allas our tree has not made it out of the box yet. Mainly due to our temporary kitchen being located in the lounge, whilst the new kitchen/ dining room is being completed, but YAY we now have underfloor heating and a tilled floor!

I can’t wait to be able to share some pictures of the finished  room over on Instagram after all of my talking about our renovations, but just a little more patience is required.

As much of our kitchen equipment has been in storage for the last 18 months, I am getting super excited about the prospect of being able to bake again soon, and actually cook a meal that doesn’t involve either a slow cooker or George Foreman grill!

If like me the Christmas shopping isn’t quite done yet, then see my Christmas Gift Guide below for some treats to add to your shopping list.

We started the week in the most amazing fashion with a gorgeous wedding at the Shangri-La Hotel in Paris organised by Luxe Paris Events with photography by Julien Scussel – see full wedding here
