It’s official, the Christmas countdown is now on! If you’re anything like me then you will be spending today and the next seven days frantically finishing off your Christmas shopping, getting stressed out over late/incorrect deliveries, and madly wrapping pressies (a fun week ahead). But of course Christmas is all about enjoying yourself and spending time with friends and family, and what better way to do that than over a festive tipple! Drinks Tray Unfortunately my little flat is too small to have one of those uber-glam drinks trolleys, so instead I am making do with a little drinks tray…

In my last blog post on my new flat I did a little tour of my kitchen, so now I’m doing the same again but this time it’s on my new bedroom!

The location of the hotel was perfect for us to go out exploring. We arrived early so before we could check in we wandered around East Molesey which included visiting the Hampton Court grounds and pretty gardens which I…
