Better Late than Never…Right?!?!

Snapshots of Christmas

I know – Christmas was last year! I haven’t posted my Chrissy stuff, so I’m doing it now.

It seems like ages ago that it was Christmas and lots of Vodka and Cointreau has gone down since so in this rare moment of clarity I shall post this…before I forget again…

I was so happy to do Christmas for the fam – it was an evening meal so the tree was lit up and candles were burning – had a great time!

Loads of pictures coming your way…!!!

  1. Such a gorgeous spread Helen!! Wow. LOVE the look of that duck with the quinoa… delish! You and your daughter look heaps alike. Both gorgeous (obviously great genes!). Thanks for sharing this beautiful day with us, glad that you guys got some quality family time xxx

    • Thank you so much Laura! You always say the sweetest things! We had a great day – I do love Christmas. My 11 yr old nephew ate most of the duck – it was good! My daughter will be 20 this year (where have the years gone!). Looking forward to a great 2014 as the second half of last year was the shittiest ever. Always a pleasure to read your posts – amazing photos and a great writer. Have a blast and enjoy the sunshine gorgeous girl xx
