Merry Christmas

Happy Christmas to you all! I hope you all have a lovely day. I'm so happy to be back in Ireland with my family for a few days. I promise I'll be back to posting and commenting regularly after New Year!

Christmas Tree

We got our Christmas tree!

It was a lot heavier than it looks, but luckily my friend Rebecca helped me to carry it home! It was well worth it to have a real Christmas tree: it's me and my boyfriend's first tree too, which makes it extra special. It's sitting in our bedroom which is a little unconventional but it's just so nice to wake up and put the Christmas tree lights on so that the whole room has a lovely glow.

Just another two weeks and ten nights at work until I fly back to Ireland on the 23rd to see my family. I can't wait!

Christmas Time In Edinburgh

I've been absent from my blog for the last few days, and I've really missed catching up on all my favourite blogs too. I've finally got a day off tomorrow after 6 days of work, and I can't wait! Until then, I thought I'd put up some pictures I took on Sunday when I went to Edinburgh Castle and then spent some time at the Christmas market with my friend Rebecca and my boyfriend. It was icy cold and there were huge crowds, but it was wonderful and I can't wait to go back again.
From top to bottom: Christmas tree on The Mound, view of the Christmas market from the castle, the ice rink (I can't wait to go!), mulled mead and mulled wine, a reindeer who smelled particularly delicious, and an adorable polar bear.
