I am not going to tire you with yet another “best of 2012” type post because I assume you read the blog throughout the year and don’t need me to repeat it. I also presume you have your favourite posts. If you don’t remember a thing,  WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!

Did you have a lovely Christmas? I know about 80% of Facebook statuses consisted of illness updates so I am sorry if you have been ill. Thankfully the Miller household had a bout of illness a week prior to Christmas so everything went ahead without a hitch. We ate, we were merry. I received tonnes of lovely cards and gifts

I had an office Christmas party. It was a small affair. Embellished outfits all round.

Some of my favourite gifts. Orwell and Goode print, Chase and Wonder napkins, Joules phone cover and another stag.

Lesson learnt from Christmas 2012: Do not fall asleep whilst steaming a Christmas pudding that takes 2 hours and requires topping up. You will have to throw away your pan and the house will reek of burnt plastic for days.

On the blog tomorrow – trends for 2013, and what I would like to see abolished. There will be paint skills involved. Here’s the post for the “trends for 2012“.  And one of my favourites – “trends to abolish in 2012“.
