ho bloody ho!

i've held off from posting this but hey it's only 132 days!.... Last Saturday our Christmas hall opened!... (some days behind the other big department store in london)..

you will be surprised the number or people that start to ask for it early july and the tourists love it!... however I can say that I do struggle with delivering training etc surrounded by glitter & fake snow when its 70' outside!...

I can also say that i love some of the stuff.. there is lots of vintage, kitsch & patriotic decs! We have had bespoke aprons made this year for the christmas team that read "Ho Bloody Ho"... I will definitely be bagging one for christmas day!


As previously blogged the union jack has had a huge revival this year & christmas is no different! Emma Bridgewater union jack crackers are on their way!

So Santa as i've been good this year and life has been a bit challenging i'm putting my request in now... George Clooney would be lovely, however if he is busy the scrummy Rupert Penry-Jones or Dr McDreamey are a close 2nd and 3rd!... Thankyou Y

Hi TCake!
I've just found your fabulous blog through Kelly's blog, it's nice to meet you!
I'd like to have George Cloneey too as Christmas present..but unfortunately at the moment is engaged with another Italian girl, sigh!
That hall looks great..here I have to wait until November for buying some Christmas bits!
Have a lovely weekend!

Now how did I miss that stocking today! I was very restrained and only brought 1 decoration today but I will definitely be returning and adding more!

Kelly and I both loved the Ho Bloody Ho range as it's perfect for our dads who don't always get into the Christmas spirit!

Hello :)

Thank you so much for your lovely comment today.
I was so pleased to see how quickly people came to visit me at my new home!
The christmas department was lovely and the aprons are genius!
I want one for my dad!
Any chance that they will be selling them or are they only for the staff?

Lots of Love
