Another week down (which means Christmas is coming along fast!). This weeks grateful list is a very festive one, as you would probably expect! I hope you guys have all had an amazing week, come and have a chat in the comments and let me know what you have been up to this week! If you are in to all things festive, and you haven't checked out the super guest post titled 'Winter', by Lucy Fisk from the blog Tired from Whitstable, then you really should. Thanks again for writing for my little blog Lucy, you are awesome!

On to this weeks gratitude list:

:: On Monday this week Joe and I went out for an amazing dinner at Bills in Salisbury. I had a very tasty Peach Bellini, a burger and sticky toffee pudding with caramel sauce and ice cream. It was such a lovely treat and we were super grateful to get a free box of truffles on our way out too. After the meal we took a stroll into the Guildhall Square, where they have the Christmas Market. It was closed at that time of night, but all the twinkly lights were so pretty. It was such a great evening.

:: This week I was very fortunate to receive some gorgeous Narcissus through the post from my fab hubby. The smell of Narcissus in the winter fills me with joy! I love them so much.

:: In a successful attempt to make me feel super-festive my lovely work colleague, who for confidentiality reasons I will call 'total nut job', decorated my office to look like Santa's grotto. There are paper chains, trees, a rather drunk looking robin, tinsel and even baubles filled with yummy treats! It was such a wonderful surprise and it means you can't enter the office without feeling super happy.

:: Yesterday Joe made mince pies, from scratch (yep, pastry and everything!), and they were bloody amazing (worth breaking the macro-counting to experience!).

:: Small Christmas trees! Last week Joe and I got a mini tree in Tesco's but my mum topped our tree by giving me an even cuter one, sat in sweet little Christmas bag. Thanks mum!

:: Twinkly lights throughout the house. I don't know about you guys, but I love getting up early in the morning, switching on all the Christmas lights and sitting with a cup of tea and enjoying the silence. It is such a magical moment to experience. Recently I have been getting up and sitting downstairs to paint my Christmas cards and have been loving every minute of it. I am such a geek for the festive season, it makes me all warm and fuzzy!

:: Early morning walks in Salisbury. We had to get to town early yesterday to drop Joe's car off for a service, so we had a little wander about to kill some time and everywhere just looked so gorgeous. There is something about this time of year which brings out the romance in the scenery everywhere.

:: Last on my list this week has to be Heart Christmas radio (or whatever it is called!). Being in the kitchen with the fairy lights on and a few Christmas tunes is so much fun.
