Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

Ho Ho Ho…

It’s been a busy week here at Confetti & Curves HQ with work going crazy, Em’s school term coming to a halt, last minute Christmas shopping & a week full of exciting blog posts! I often wonder how (or where) I manage to summon the energy from, especially with things so darn busy, yet often it’s when life accelerates at full speed ahead is when I thrive the most. Having said that (and in all honesty as I sit here with suitcases bags under my eyes) I’m reeeeeally looking forward to a few days rest and relaxtion. And what do I plan on doing with all this upcoming free time I hear you enquire… absolutely nothing other than relish in the contents of my goodies cupboard & watch a multitude of cheesy festive films with the family!

Today however I’ll be out and about, usually my Sundays are needed to recharge after a busy week of super early starts but with Santa’s imminent visit & a few tasks still to tick off my ‘to do’ list there’s no rest until everything’s done & dusted. Of course for those of you who plan on spending the day curled up at home enjoying a few hours to yourself then you may want to take advantage of a little light blog reading – and with that I’ll fully oblige 🙂 So pour yourself a nice big cup of coffee (or whatever yummy tipple you require) and nestle down in your comfiest chair as we take a peek at what fun shenanigans has been appearing on the blog this week…
