Merry Christmas!

I’m about to embark on a massive cookathon – first time ever doing Christmas dinner en-mass – eek! So before I start all that, here’s a quick post to show you the Christmas Day trousers..loudly patterned to disguise any cooking disasters and food babies…

Black Floral Trousers – H&M (no longer available online)

I have shortened them to just above ankle length as they were a bit loose and long at the lower leg on me. I’m going to wear them with a lightweight black knit and until I open my new black ankle boots under the tree (excited), I’ll wear them with these H&M pumps which are in the sale also – only £10 (though only available in green and pink online). 

Right, back to the cooking prep now. I hope you all have a lovely, happy, safe Christmas with your family and friends. I’m taking a blogging break to spend time with Mr SGS, the kids (or blograts as the husband calls them) and the rest of my family and friends. See you soon! xxx
