We're having better weather now than what we did in the summer!

Its not as bad as a few years back though, I can remember paddling in the sea on the 24th and not losing my toes to the cold...

Merry Christmas!

Well, that is Christmas over for another yer - insane isnt it? Speaking of insane; my favourite gift 2008. Unusually, it was not one that I recieved this year, but rather one that I gave to someone else.

Now just to explain: we're all pretty big ABBA fans in our house. We've seen Mamma Mia on stage in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, ABBA Gold is perpetually aired in our cars and when the Mamma Mia came out on DVD, it immediately became a family favourite. (After going to see it in the theatre twice, of course.)

So when my granny happened to say that she would love to have an ABBA outfit to wear (another dream of hers is to walk the tightrope on her 100th birthday, she's a bit... eccentric to say the least ) my brother and I jumped at the opportunity to get one for her Christmas...

She hasn't stopped laughing yet.

And neither have we.

Ballgowns and Nail Varnish.

So, tonight is the Sna Ba - yep it IS that time of year already - or the Snowball for those of you who don't live in Stranraer. It's only half four but already the days got off to an awesome start, James passed his driving test! Awesomeness indeed!

So all is going well, fingers crossed things will keep going in that fashion and that James and I survive our parents meeting...

Will update later on what hilarity ensues from the Penikis/Dornan shindig, for now I've got my heels to figure out!

Oddly Similar...

I think they've been conversing, amidst the rabble of squeaks and barks, about how to appropriately pose for photos.

"Nose forward, chin up and wriggle!"
