Blogmas Day 21: Upside Down Tree?!


Today we celebrated Emilia's Uroma's 83rd birthday!  Although it's technically not her birthday till the 26th, we always have terrible trouble trying to find a place that serves food the day after Christmas so we decided to celebrate on a different day this year!  My Oma picked the restaurant and Emilia got the chance to wear her pretty pink corduroy dress!  Yay! :)  She is getting so much use out of all her outfits, ha ha ha!  This ensemble is courtesy of her auntie Ruth and is entirely from Next (minus the bow which is Laynie Bug!).  Everyone thought she looked absolutely adorable and she actually managed to keep the whole outfit on all day! (No poo explosions - woo hoo!)  


Here are our outfits of the day together!  I actually filmed a video on this but didn't get a chance to edit/upload so it will be up tomorrow instead!  My cardigan/shirt/dress (I'm really not sure what to call it!) is from French Connection and looks waaaaay better on me when I'm not pregnant, ha ha!  I remember hating how it looked a few months ago...probably because it was seriously unflattering with a bump, oh well!  Underneath I wore a black Boob nursing top (this outfit is actually very breastfeeding friendly!), black ASOS jeggings and my furry black wedge boots are by Chinese Laundry!


The birthday lunch was in Hayfield Manor which was beautifully decorated for Christmas...they even had an upside down Christmas tree!!  I couldn't believe it!  This is so odd to me, at first I didn't even realise what it was supposed to be!  What do you guys think of this strange trend?!  I guess it's pretty eye-catching and it definitely makes you do a double take when you first see it but I don't know if I'd ever consider one of these for my own home, ha ha ha!  


My lunch was delicious...I had the gnocchi with winter veggies - yum!!  For dessert I had a mince pie and to my surprise they brought me out two so my Oma insisted I bring it home (she always asks for a doggy bag!).  Hayfield Manor have cloth napkins so she rummaged in her handbag for a bit and then presented me with a tiny crumpled paper one to wrap it in...ha ha ha!  She is so funny!  I hope she had a good birthday lunch.  Emilia enjoyed herself too even though she slept most of the way through it!  Oh yes, and my sister Emma is home from Germany - yay!  So Emilia will get to spend some quality time with her "Auntie Em" over the holiday season!

Stay Stylish!

  1. Hi Anna. I think its so great that you would sleep on shit for 4 nights. So what if laundry day is Sunday, you can't change the sheets twice a week. Or do you only have one set of sheets? Please do a video showing how you prefer to be lazy than to wash the sheets that Emilia pooped all over and sleep on clean sheets. Can't wait for all these requested videos! You are such an admiral person Anna, never selfish, nasty or lazy ;)

    1. You really need to stop with the horrible comments, it's getting ridiculous. We've all gathered that you dont like Anna, I reckon you can leave it at that. If you're Genuinly concerned about Emilia or Anna you could try leaving some constructive criticism ans not nasty, sarcastic remarks. I log on here to read Anna's nice, cheerful blog, not to have my world tainted with your hateful comments.

    3. aw now that's just so pathetic its funny :-) I feel sorry for you. You're clearly a very unhappy person. Get some self esteem and some self respect. A more productive hobby probably wouldnt go a miss either. Anyways Ive better things to do than to get involved in some silly cyberbullying nonsense.

    4. I truly hope you find some inner peace and manage to fill your life with some joy as you are very clearly a unhappy soul.
      God bless

  2. Hi Anna. Upside down Christmas trees are old tradition that are returning lately, people used to hang trees from their ceiling, they're like that because they're the same shape as Jesus on the cross. Holly.

  6. Hi Anna, thanks you do much for your cheerful and honest blogs ET al!! I've been following for a while now! As for all the haters, I hope you don't let these people get to you. It's hard enough being a young mom let alone having to deal with nasty comments. My daughter is now two. I breast fed too and poo explosions seem to be a result of BF-ing (many an ugg boot destroyed from poo explosions on her way out of the bath!!) well done to you you are doing so well I was so scared about feeding in public and it was so scary the first few times! Hope u all have a wonderful christmas! T xx
