All I want for Christmas....

...is to feel better! What a week - with too much of it spent in bed. It would appear that the bugs the kids so kindly brought home to me, have finally taken their toll. I'd no sooner got through the Choir's big Christmas concert on Saturday night (check out our video here!) and I was down for a day in bed. Crawled back out of my pit on Monday to sing with the choir again - this time at Castlecourt and I'm now back in bed again. But building strength for yet another pre-Christmas gig, tomorrow evening (Thursday) at 6.45pm in House of Fraser, Belfast. If you're near Belfast, do come in to hear us on the 2nd Floor at the escalators. We will be filling the whole store with joy - it's always a great gig and you can pick up our new CD there too. Or online here if you're further afield.

But being in bed has given me some time to think about what I want for Christmas. Hubby was relieved to hear that there are just 2 things on the list so everyone's going to club together for me this year:

First up, UGG boots - I know, I know...not everyone's favourite footwear but I love them for around the house and they are so cosy. My current UGG slippers are about 4 years old and they were such a good buy as they have many more years left in them but I really wanted a pair of chestnut short boots so I have the option of wearing them out if I'm nipping to the shops or on the school run (but NOT with my PJ's - I promise!)
I've been shopping around and currently, you can pick them up in a few reputable retailers (to avoid fakes) for the same price. The Classic UGGs are rarely discounted so it's not a big risk to get them for Christmas.

Available here:

Second item is an iPhone 5c. My first ever Apple phone. I've been on SIM only for about 6 months with an 18 month old HTC which in fairness to it, is working ok, albeit very slowly and with occasional hissy fits where it just shuts itself off or won't let me answer calls and texts. So I'm arranging a new contract with my existing provider and am hopeful of a little white box under the tree on Christmas Day!
iPhone 5c
And that's it - who says women are hard to buy for?? Wish I could share my hubby's presents to give you husband inspiration but he reads the blog...so you'll have to wait until after Christmas - or email me!
Hope you're all having a good week,

Ax

  1. I'd also love a pair of UGGs; they look so comfy! I have imitation ones, but they're just not the same. I've got an iPhone 4 and love it, so would definitely recommend getting an iPhone 5c! xxx

    1. Oh I cannot get over how great it is - it's such a quality item...world away from the old HTC I used to have. Ax

  3. I have the iPhone 5s and I love it! Not yet gone down the uggs path but I do see others in them and think maybe I should give them a go... Lynne x

    1. Well, I'm not a fan of them worn day to day but I do love them for lounging. However, I ended up sending mine back! Post to follow.. Ax

  4. Well whaddya know? I had the inkling of a cold and thought I was going to stave it off but no - tonight is the night - it's come on big time and I'm sat with my box of Kleenex beside me and a blocked nose. Pah.

    And there is something so cosy about wearing Uggy boots as slippers indoors. I swear by them. I've just about worn out my current pair and am ready to get the next pair from my stock piled stock. Keep up the vit C and hope you feel better soon!

  5. I'm after a pair of ugg slippers this yr actually, but I fear it's too late to start dropping hints now, so I think I'll have to buy them for myself come January! You are easy sorted this year, I have a list as long as my arm!!

    1. I know - normally, I have a ton of stuff I want but maybe it's old age...I'm not feeling the need as much? Or perhaps it's the lack of Vitamin C! x

  6. Excellent choices! I love my iphone (just a 4 though, not a fancy new 5!) and I have to confess to owning those exact ugg boots ... which get worn to death around the house and even on the occasional quick trip to the local shops when I run out of milk! Can't beat them for snuggly comfort in the evening :) Get well soon - it's horrible to be sick at this time of year. Hopefully you'll be well on the mend before the festivities next week x

  8. Really can't go wrong with a pair of classic chestnut uggs. Mine are chestnut but do have a pattern on the foot, they will do for the next few years though, although I would prefer plain, Hope you feel better soon x

    1. Thanks Sharron - yes, the ones with a bit of detail like that tend to be in the sale but I really wanted plain ones. Lord knows why as I'm not planning on wearing out that much! x
