Happy new year!

114

Happy New Year everyone! Well I have to admit 2018 wasn’t the best start for me with an unplanned stay in hospital but more about that later. I want to know how your Christmas was first? Was it fun, stressful, laid back, crazy or a little bit of everything? I hope you had a nice time whatever you did.

Ours was a little of everything I have to say, the kids were so excited which adds such a lovely element to Christmas now. We had lots planned for them too. For us it all kicked off on the 22nd when my mum came with us to the Pantomime of Sleeping Beauty at Windsor. Gosh this brings back memories of being a child when our Granny would take us, usually to Panto at Wimbledon.

It’s the one thing you can count on not to change isn’t it. You can always depend on sweets being thrown into the crowd, maybe even a water spray and jokes that are just for the grown ups… wink wink nudge nudge! We had an extra treat too as we were invited to a very special meet and greet with the man of the show himself Mr Basil Brush. I mean it doesn’t get more famous than that right?

Boy were my girls happy to meet him, I had been showing them videos on YouTube and Ivy particularly couldn’t wait to see him. ‘He sooooooo funny mummy’ Ivy kept saying followed by her hilarious laugh. We went to his dressing room before the show and got to have a ‘chat’ and give him a stroke behind the ear! Basil even has his own ‘fox flap’ on his dressing room door!

Once the panto was underway, (which by the way was a great production) Ivy was shouting at the stage ‘Basil is my friend’. Gosh she was funny. Tilda loved it all too, Sleeping Beauty is her favourite story and she just loves the dancing. There were some great songs and comedy sketches during the show, most of them including Basil of course!

Afterwards we were very lucky to get an extra treat with Basil and go onto the stage when everyone had left the theatre. It was such an exciting treat for the girls and for me too, they both seemed pretty comfortable up on stage and I wonder if either of them will ever tread the boards. Royal Windsor is a beautiful theatre and it felt very special to see it this way. A massive thank you to Micheal Windsor and my mum for organising it for us.

On Christmas Eve we had family and friends over for drinks and canapés. My lovely cousins came, the oldest of which, Patrick, had just become a father for the first time so it was lovely to celebrate with him. His gorgeous wife was at home with their baby girl for an evening of being looked after by her mum as she wasn’t yet ready to make it out of the house, so we will have to wait a little longer to meet little Ella and have some baby cuddles. My younger cousin rather impressingly smoked his own whole salmon for us which was really gorgeous, and that’s saying something as I don’t normally like it that much.

That evening myself and the girls did one of our Xmas traditions which was to make magic reindeer food. We add sparkles and magic to oats and make a wish with a magic wand and leave it out for Santa and the reindeer by the fireplace with their stockings (obviously not outside as we didn’t want the wildlife to eat the sparkles!).

In the morning you can imagine it was very exciting for the girls, we sat around watching them pull out their presents from Santa along with squeals of delight. After that we went for a walk and then came home to help prepare for Christmas dinner. We save our presents for the evening when we are all together but we did let the girls have a few throughout the day to keep them going.

My mum lays the most beautiful table at Christmas, it’s all red and candle-lit and as we eat around five o’clock, it’s all dark and lovely. She cooked the entire Green Seasons Meat Hamper so that everyone had a choice of either turkey, beef and ham and all the trimmings. It was a real feast, finished off by my aunty’s homemade Irish cream whiskey! Blooming ‘eck, that blew the cobwebs away! We all got very spoilt with our presents and were very grateful for a wonderful day.

On Boxing Day, we went to see the winter lights at Kew Gardens, wow was it magical. Even though it absolutely poured with rain on us we still loved it. The whole walk around the gardens was lit up with the most amazing installations, some of them musical, some seemed to dance across the water. It really was special although we were soaked to the bone when we got round. I’m pretty sure it’s sold out to the end now but if they do it again next year and you are local do book it!

Fast forward to New Year’s Eve and I’m afraid things took a bit of a turn for me. I woke up not feeling great, I had a big bloated tummy and was feeling really rough, I figured it was Christmas catching up on me. The problem being that I was due in to work that evening. Well you CAN’T call in sick on New Year’s Eve can you as everyone would think you were just wanting to party!! So I managed to get myself to work after taking everything I could to help. Charlie and I made it through a two-hour Charlie Bears show which was very entertaining in the end and I managed to forget that I wasn’t feeling that great. I don’t think anyone would have noticed that I wasn’t 100%, well I hope so anyway!

The next day I didn’t feel too bad other than feeling like I had been punched in the stomach and I just carried on with my next shift. Fast forward to the next day and I was starting to feel bad again. I took my mother-in-law out to lunch with the girls and dropped her to the station for her journey home followed by a trip the Oceanarium with the girls. I hadn’t had them on my own for at least 10 days so I really wanted to do something nice with them although I was struggling. ‘Darlings can you go and look at that fish tank while mummy just sits on this chair for a minute’.

By the time we got home I had to put some cartoons on and had to go and lie down… well this turned from a lie down into a call to NHS direct, to an appointment at Poole hospital out of hours triage, to A&E and being admitted for an appendicitis!! Yikes. One of my best friends Becki came to the rescue to take me in as Fred had to stay at home with the girls. She was amazing and stayed ’til 1.30am!

I won’t give you all the gory details but I can tell you it wasn’t fun. The nurses and doctors at Poole Hospital were fantastic. Under-staffed, yes unsurprisingly, but they were all incredible and I would like to thank them here publicly for being superstars. They really do an incredible job and we are so lucky to have them. I shall make sure to be dropping in a big tub of thank you sweets and biscuits as soon as I am back on my feet. I am now at home recovering with the help of my friends and family. I should hopefully be back to work soon.

Other than all of that I thought I would let you know how I have been shaking up my beauty routine for 2018. It was going to be a bit more in depth, but for obvious reasons it’s been shaved down a little! It’s quite simple really, it’s all about skin. Our skin is the starting point for everything. If your skin is tired and dry with layers of dead skin cells then your serums won’t perform, neither will your moisturisers and your make-up will be sitting on top all this not looking it’s best.

This is how my skin has been, unsurprisingly, because winter has a way of leaving it looking dull. So I’m bringing in a few new products to wake it up. I say new, they are products I have used before and I am re-discovering my love for them. Firstly, Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. This contains natural fruit enzymes to help to exfoliate the skin while smoothing and clarifying. I used to be a fan of hardcore scrubs that blitzed the skin but I am much more kind to myself these days and prefer an exfoliant like this. My skin looks renewed when I use it, currently once sometimes twice a week. You can get this along with Elemis Miceller Water which is the perfect easy make-up remover for when you are in a hurry.

Secondly, to upkeep the maintenance of my skin I am now using the iconic Pixi Glow Tonic in limited edition 500ml salon size to help ‘tone, firm and tighten skin, while removing dead skin cells.’ It has 5% glycolic acid to help give my skin it’s mojo back, plus plenty of botanicals! This is one of those products which always features in beauty articles by editors and the top beauty bloggers and I am now truly understanding why. Having been poorly my skin is in real need of extra help and these two products are certainly pulling their weight.

Those are the two main contenders that I have introduced for 2018 but I’m sure there will be more! I do also want to give a shout out to one more product that was a bit of a saviour for me when I was in hospital. I’m so glad I threw it into my handbag when I left for hospital, I saw it on my dresser and had the sense to grab it as I left as I had a feeling I wouldn’t be coming back that night!! It was Decleor Aurabsolu Refreshing Mist. If you have ever stayed in hospital you know how hot it can be but also how you just don’t feel clean and refreshed. It’s hydrating, so again perfect for when you are extra dehydrated. So this was a real treat that I just spritzed continually during my stay. It also smells like a spa.

Well that’s it from me for this week. I’ve got lots of plans for my blog this year and a few new things I am going to start doing, like my favourite recipes that I am doing at home. Plus one of my goals for the year is to read more so I will let you know what I have been reading along with my favourite beauty and fashion picks form QVC.

I hope you all have had a better start to 2018 than I have, thanks as always for stopping by and reading my blog. Make sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Love Katy x x

    So sorry to hear you haven’t been at all well! I agree absolutely about nurses – they are extraordinary. I had to spend a couple of nights’ uncscheduled in hospital a couple of years ago and I could not have been better looked after, had I been a millionaire. Actually, everybody from consultants, through nurses, to radiographers, the chaps delivering meals, cleaners and even the bloke who sold the newspapers. Every one of them was an absolute star. I was really scared, but they were amazing and I never doubted for a minute that they were all there to keep me as safe and well as possible.
    I hope so much that you are all able to put your less than pleasant experience behind you and are soon on the mend.

      Indeed, everyone from the janitors to the surgeons were wonderful. They are so precious I wish they were looked after better, let’s hope our hospitals can be sorted xx

    Happy New Year!
    You looked lovely on Hogmanay; your outfit was very elegant and you definitely would never have known you weren’t feeling 100%
    Charlie was so funny the way he was going on about ‘Twig’ the Charlie Bear monkey 😉
    Your wee girl (the one with the dark hair) is your spitting image. They both look so cute in their tartan dresses.
    Good to hear you’re now on the mend.
    Looking forward to seeing you back on air in the near future.
    Take care and best wishes, Lynne x

      I know Charlie was so funny that night, he definitely had the mischief in him! Yes Tilda really is my mini me, funny how I ended up with one little blond girl too. She looks like me at that age though in the face. I’m glad to be back to work, although I’m taking it easy to start off. Hope 2018 is a great one for you x

    Hi Katy

    So sorry to hear you have been poorly. How traumatic for you to have surgery.

    I agree 100 0/0 about how wonderful the NHS is. My Dad suffered a cardiac arrest in October + spent 4 weeks in ICU. The staff at his hospital were truly inspiring, so dedicated and caring.

    I hope you are feeling back in top form. It is great to have you back : )

    Take care Joanna xx
