This month began with a trip to the local Christmas markets which was lovely. I lovely getting some mini pancakes each year so of course I did that. They were absolutely delicious and were an excellent way to start December.

I had an amazing concert experience in December when me and my sister went to see The Vamps. I’ve been following them since I was 14 so we couldn’t miss out on seeing their 10 year anniversary tour. Originally, our tickets were seated and right at the back of the arena but a lovely security guard upgraded up to the pits right at the front. It was an incredible experience and I’m so glad that it happened. I love The Vamps and will honestly never forget that concert.

This month is a month of birthdays in my family. It is my Dad’s midway through December and my Mum’s is two days after Christmas. So, we celebrated their birthdays with a couple of nights of lovely food, board games and time together. It was lovely and I appreciate them both a lot.

Me and David has a nice chilled out Christmas day at home too. We watched a couple of films, built some Lego, had some delicious food and just generally enjoyed each others company. Over the next couple of days we visited the rest of our families and spent some lovely time with them. It has been lovely and well needed.

December has been such a busy month but has been a lovely month. I am looking forward to seeing what January brings!
