Crimbo Limbo

I like to refer to this week between Christmas and New Year as ‘Crimbo Limbo Week.’ It’s a strange old time where lots of people aren’t working and the majority of the population sit in front of bad telly, stuffing their faces with left over turkey and Christmas chocolate. Time slooows down and no one knows what day of the week it is. Oh and everyone gets sick… or is that just me?

Anyway, I just wanted to stop by today and say I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and to let you know what’s going on this week. Although there will be less posts than usual, there will still be something everyday to get your teeth into, it’ll just be a more laid back version of the blog.

Tomorrow and Wednesday I’ll be posting a recap of my all time favourite posts of 2010, definitely worth escaping the rellies to pop for those ones! Until then, want to see what my friends at fabulous London vintage dress shop, Fur Coat No Knickers sent me for Christmas? Am I the luckiest girl in the world or what!?

I also got send my awesome Rock n Roll Bride wallplanner from Sugalily and a canvas print of one of my shots from the Paris photo shoot from Fernside Framing! (click for slightly rubbish camera phone twitpic…anyone notice Henry sneaking into that photo!?)

My parents bought me a new office chair (I’m still waiting for it to be delivered, but isn’t it pretty?) and Gareth is going to be doing up the kitchen as my main gift (eeek!) and yes, he has said he’ll do it pink for me (in the wallpaper below…literally so excited!) What an awesome husband I have.

I hope you all had a fab Christmas too. What did Father Christmas bring you?

    i got frank turner’s poetry of the deed from my little sister! i’d never heard of him but we saw him with Lucero and social distortion. he’s from winchester and i so wanted to ask him if he knew you! you are like a household name in the UK right? 😀

  2. I have a pink kitchen too! You should check out J. C. Penney’s, their Cooks line has pink toaster, microwave, crockpot, coffeemaker, etc….wooo! Not quite as fuschia as that lovely wall paper but PINK!

    Happiest 2011 to you, looking forward to more greatness from you in the year to come!

  3. it’s the day after boxing day – all I want to do is sit on the sofa and vegetate with baileys, belgian chocs and anything else beginning with b, my tummy resembles the silhouette of the snowman outside and yet I can still not resist popping over to RnRB to see what you are getting up to! Faabbbuuulllooouus dress by the way….

  5. After three days of chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate I have settled down to some work today. I was trying to wait until the New Year but I have so many ideas flying around my head I fear they may fly off if I don’t action them soon!!! Oooooh I have also purchased one of your Sugalily Wall Planners to help me get organised for 2011. xxxx

    that’s so awesome kerry! when i got mine in the flesh i was so excited!!
    i was planning on staying away from the computer until january too but sometimes you need a break from the crap tv huh!?

  7. Oh wow, yes, very lucky. All I managed this year was a digital photo frame (really, what is the point of those things? To drain off excess electricity?) and some Toblerone – really not bitching about the latter tho. So I went out yesterday and bought myself an AppleTV. Happy crimblemas to me…

    Have a good chrimbo-limbo, get better so you can swan around in that killer dress 🙂
