I named this picture I snapped earlier ladystark.jpg because I felt like her, wandering around my cold house with this giant grey shawl wrapped round me, haha.


  1. I hate mince pies - otherwise it sounds lovely.

  2. Oh I need to start getting into the mince pie baking that's for sure! Love them. Nom nom. That and I really probably should properly start buying gifts, slacking this year!

  3. I think I've bought just about all of my mXmas presents now, which means that when I'm in Vegas next week, I can buy for me, right?


I love getting comments and receiving them, and I will always reply to them, even if it takes me a little while, please be patient!
