My One and Only Vlogmas

ruth crilly and family

I intended to do a series of vlogs running up to Christmas (a practice commonly known as “vlogmas”) but – unsurprisingly – I only managed one. So here it is, my one and only Vlogmas 2016. Highlights include a personal dining experience in my own home, courtesy of Hugo Boss (it really was quite brilliant!) and the making of my annual family Christmas card. (I say “annual” – this is the second year we’ve done it. I’ll post the final photos on Christmas Day in the Sunday Tittle Tattle.)

Watch, share and weep (possibly with frustration/boredom). The time will pass more quickly if you have a glass of something bubbly in your hand, so please do pour yourself a quick tipple, if only so that I can live vicariously through you…

    I love it! It’s like chatting to a friend as I cook supper. Excited for you and the arrival of number two. Oh, and I did have a drop of wine, as per your suggestion. I don’t usually do that before putting the babes to bed! My daughter is a little younger than Angelica. And my boy is three. So… been there, done that, and now I’m out the other side. Well, I’m getting there! But it does mean I can have a glass of wine. Happy Christmas! All the best with the birth of baby two. (Another girl I think!) X

    Vlogging with all the madness going on is impossible, at least for me. And the thing is, for the average person not much fun is happening. i mean, even I dont enjoy the annual office Christmas party, let alone I want to blog and share it. But there isnt much going on at home either, just running around like a maniac after work to sort out presents, food and all that stuff.
    But I love to follow you along, just chatting to the camera. It is a relaxing, witty conversation. Well, more of a monologue, but I find myself answering, which probably means I should really get out more.
