My first proper go with my new GoPro camera!

Hope you guys all had an amazing Christmas! It’s been a busy one at the Ruthnum household but I’ve loved every second. I even got my Christmas wish that it would snow, real flakes scattered across my car, and just enough to throw a snowball at my boyfriend. Christmas Eve was spent at the pub surrounded by friends, catching up and having a good sing and dance to some classics. Christmas Day was spent with the family – early rise for a trip to the coast to watch the charity swimmers dunking themselves in the freezing waters for a good cause, then straight off to see the Royals at Sandringham. We had an okay view, but definitely not as good as last year’s! Before a huge roast, lots of lovely presents and an afternoon relaxing in front of the TV – pretty perfect if you ask me! The next couple of days were spent much the same way with the boyfriend and some of his family – but now it’s back to reality as I get on with my final preparations for travelling – it’s just a week now until I fly! Here’s a selection of pictures that sum up last week for me:

Is this the best Christmas card for a blogger or what?


My hands were as steady as a rock in the Jenga championships!

There you go! My Christmas whittled down to a few pics – hope yours was as special as mine. I’d love to hear what you guys got up to. Why not comment telling me about your favourite Christmas moment, or the best present you got this year?
