HandbagsbyHelen HQ did get a bit manic in early December. Not helped (or maybe it was!) by the fact that Mr HbyH had planned for us to escape Christmas this year. So on the 17th December we headed off to Thailand for two weeks. I know, i know ..... lucky girl! Although when Mr HbyH first suggested the plan I wasn't quite so sure. I'm not a beach holiday person and I've never been out of the country at Christmas. I'm quite happy at home sat in front of the log burner, full of too much Turkey and Christmas pudding.
But I eventually came round to the idea and to my surprise I discovered that I actually CAN do beach holidays and have re-learned how to read books all the way through - even ones without pictures! I think I should practice the lounging around thing a bit more though - just to make sure i'm doing it right.
