I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'


Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la laaaaaa la la la la!!

Okay, well not quite.

To be honest I haven't actually managed yet to deck any halls - in a decoration sense that is, but we're nearly there!

The tree is up and the lights are on, but that's about as far as I got yesterday.

I did keep half of the tradition - kind of.

Twelve days before and twelve days after is something my mum always went by for Christmas decorating and it's a tradition I've kept in my own grown up life.

But you see we went away at the weekend, just back home (for me) a pre Christmas family get together and a truly lovely morning with a wonderful lady (and friend) with all good intentions of leaving early yesterday morning to get back and spend the day putting the tree up and decorating.

But!!!....................................uh, huh there it is, the 'but!!'

Poor little Florrie became ill.

So 'yes' we did get home yesterday in more of a 'I'm going to be sick mum' kind of rush and the tree did go up and the lights and ribbon were placed around before Mr T tootled off to work this morning, but that's about as far as we got.

Everything else is still piled on the living room floor 'waiting' with the hope that I will get chance to do 'something' with them today - which I do have all good intentions of doing so, but then again we are talking about me Little Miss easily distracted here - hello.

Though with Florrie on the mend I'm sure the girls will give me no peace until we are completely decked today!

Wish me luck and have a fabulous day.

At least I have a plate of these to keep me going!!


There's nothing like a chocolate overload to keep you focused.
