Instagram #30:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, friends! Sorry for my absence during most of December but - as I mentioned in this post - I have been pretty busy lately, and I very much enjoyed having some time off over the festive period. Here's what I got up to while I was gone:

1. Another amazing hand drawn Christmas card, made by my talented buddy Marianne.
2. I was lucky enough to lose spectacularly in this surprisingly intense spontaneous game of Scrabble on a trip to Dundee.
3. Our Christmas gator ballerina tree ornament made a new friend this year.

4. Craig and I did the obligatory couple photo on our fifth anniversary. We still (kind of) like each other really, don't worry.
5. Not only did Nicola give me the amazing Amy Poehler's book for Christmas, but she also wrapped it in paper with my own Instagram photos on it. How amazing is that?
6. Mossy proof that we spent Christmas in deepest, darkest Cumbria. There wasn't even any phone signal!

7. I was given this badass burger cushion by my lovely adopted cousin Anna for Christmas, which is now in pride of place on our bed. I can't express how much I love it!
8. Speaking of Amy Poehler's book - here it is alongside her pal Tina Fey's book and Lena Dunham's book! I got all three for Christmas, and I'm very excited to read them and write about them in future Inferior Book Group posts.
9. Some of my favourite adopted family in a Hogmanay group selfie that gives Ellen DeGeneres a run for her money. Right?

10. And finally: a charming 'Happy New Year!' photo we sent to all of our friends...
