It is the last couple of days of Christmas . I have ate far too much and had too much fun.

Here is a little look at life around here.

I am countdown to New Year's Eve as I am hosting a party. Lots of shopping and cooking remain to be done. I am almost looking forward to detox and gym in the new year.

I have also gone to the sales and will be returning almost everything I bought.

Enjoy the last few days of Christmas

It is with great sadness that I learnt of the sad death of Shane McEntee TD today.

I had the pleasure of knowing Shane through family connections. He was a genuine person a very huggy man someone who I sat beside day in day out during a tough time. I looked forward to his smile his common sense and his humanity. It is beyond tragic for his family and friends. He was a special person and I suppose that is why so many people are upset. He left behind so many unanswered questions. He was special both inside and out.

Only the best die young. You will be so missed.

Christmas is a time to sparkle even if you do not dress up the rest of the year it is the one time of the year to shine. A little bit of glitter goes a long way. But it does make you feel dressed up.

Add a little sparkle to your life you can even add it to your iPad or even just a pair of sparkly shoes.

I think nothing looks better at Christmas time than a wreath on the door. It is such a welcoming sight.

Here are a few of my favourites.

I am always sad to take mine down.

Michelle Obama

A fun loving person.

I so love what a genuine fun loving person Michelle Obama is here she is at Children's National Medical Center in Washington DC where she brought along her dog Bo.

She was reading to the sick children. What a great smile she has.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. The Michael bubble Christmas cd is playing the Christmas scented candles are lit.

The tree is twinkling brightly.

Do not forget to take time out from all this stress and busy time to relax and savour the moments.

Here is a little taste of Christmas from my home.

Have a lovely fun weekend.

I am going through a boot phase at the moment. With all the rain and bad weather we seem to have lately I think a pair of good Wellington boots would be a good idea.

They are great in the snow also. They can also look stylish.

Who knows maybe Santa might read this post.

Here are a few of my current favourite pictures,
