It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 

Last weekend it was finally time … Finally time to blast the Christmas songs, eat some pigs in blankets and put the tree up. I was so excited!

After looking for a few weeks we bought a brand new 7ft tree, gold LED lights and gold and red decorations. Due to this taking place in October/ November I had too put them in to storage and wait for the first weekend in December before they were allowed to make an appearance.

We started by following the instructions and clipping each section of the tree together (which took longer than expected), this was followed by placing all 1000 led lights around each layer of the tree. It was then time for the main event – putting the decorations on. Due to my hate for anything being uneven we had to make sure all decorations were in pairs and symmetrical.

After about three hours this was finally achieved!

Weekend walk around Delamere

Due to English weather being unpredictable you make the most out of weekends when the weather is dry or if lucky enough has a hint of sun. Last weekend I spent my time dog sitting so my days out needed to be somewhere that didn’t include too much traveling and also allowed dogs. After hemming and hawing on where would be best to go I settled with a trip to Delamere forest. Delamere is a local woodland area which has multiple walking and cycles routes, along with different outdoor activities such as Goape and segwaying.  

The views around Delamere are beautiful and depending on how much time you have, or in my case how far you 10 year old dog can walk, there are many different view points.
