Christmas 2013

Awh Christmas 2013 what a treat you were! This was my first 9 days off since we opened and it was idyllic! I love Christmas holidays because it’s the one time everybody’s off at the same time! Last year, when I was still working in marketing, we did a campaign at the airport 8am-6pm all over Christmas. I hated it, as my husband was off the whole time and I was rolling out of bed to work for the day as he lay on.


However, this year we were both off and we ate far too much, slept far too much and did far too little, but that’s what Christmas is all about, right?


We also had a quick trip to Hamburg to visit friends, which was really great! Actually my one and only time as Cupid, as I went to school with David and introduced him to my Great-Aunts Granddaughter six years ago, they’re now married and expecting their first baby in February! We spent the majority of our time visiting the German Markets, eating out, shopping, playing Settlers of Catan and watching Person of Interest… check them out! As a city to live in, it’s gorgeous, for sights though, Number Five on Trip Advisor is a tunnel under the river…


We didn’t go big on Christmas presents this year; I got Chris tickets to hear William Caulfield, Rapidough (we’re building up our collection of games, is that sad?) and I got a trip away to Lyrath Hotel, which looks beaut etc etc. I also made a photo book, of our big family holiday to America, which we all went on two years ago, for mum, dad and Chris. If you want to take a nosey, it’s here:


We also joined David Lloyd’s over Christmas, it’s SUCH a nice gym… and I found out that you can listen to your iPod while swimming; I think I might get a few funny looks if I invested in one though!


Now, we are into January and it’s super busy, with 52% of people getting engaged over Christmas and New Year. We have lots of bridal fairs booked in and we’re in the process of organising our designer weekends and sample sales 🙂 I’ll keep you all updated.


Love Kate
