Well hello there you lovely thing!
Today I am feeling rather poorly. I’m not sure if I’m coming down with something or I’m just over-tired, time will tell. The last few weeks I have had family asking me what I’d like for christmas this year and I’ve found it a little difficult to steer them in the right direction.
The usual things people would buy me include clothes, vouchers for shops or restaurants and alcohol. Most of those are kind of redundant this year due to the fact that I’m pregnant. Not that I’ve sworn of fashion and meals out but it’s harder to please a hippo than a normal Hana. Also, as Matt and I have been living in Edinburgh for a few years now we really have all our house bits and don’t need much in that department.
Here’s the scoop on what’s top of my santa list…
I’d also like a few pampery bits. Basically anything from Soap & Glory and some nice nail polish. I have actually asked my Mum for an airfryer/actifry/health grill so that I can make delicious chips healthily in half the time. I already make them once a month or so (the healthy way) from scratch in my oven but it takes a lot of time and attention. I’m also hoping to use it to try some new chicken drumstick recipes and make Matt some nice hot wings. I have a feeling that between it and the slow cooker our poor oven will be redundant!
This Christmas I’ve treated my pregnant self to some non alcoholic mulled wine <3 *mmm I can smell it already* and I’ve recently picked up some new underwear for my rapidly expanding chest which feels great! I look and feel a lot better thanks to this german engineering that’s currently strapped to me.
Above all I’m really looking forward to a cosy relaxed Christmas season spent in Edinburgh with Matt & friends. We’ll be skyping with family on Christmas day and visiting Ireland in January.
What’s on your wish list this year?
