This year Ben and I decided that we'd treat ourselves to a Christmas holiday in Malta rather than give each other a specific Christmas present. We were away for a week and at first we didn't know what to do with ourselves as we have been so busy recently that we couldn't remember what it was like to do absolutely nothing. So, we packed up the SUP Board (previous posts here & here) and went to the Golden Bay on the North West coast of Malta. With a delicious picnic and an abundance of water, we rolled out our towels and had a go on our Stand Up Paddle Board. The water was calm and crystal clear, the weather was lovely and warm, the equivalent to a British summer which felt odd in December! However the views where breath taking and I can really see why it is called the Golden Bay.

Christmas is the best season of the year, families come together and celebrate the festive season. Also there is an abundance of mulled wine and an excuse to eat one too many mince pies. Not long now until it's the 25th, and with all my Christmas shopping done, I am extra excited! The house has a certain charm about it now that all the decorations are up, like they say, 'tis the season to be jolly!'

There is no need to fear my lovelies, I am back! Trust me when I say it has literally been killing me not to blog for the past two weeks, but with it being the end of semester 1, University is demanding a lot of my time and energy. But I sincerely apologize to all of you who have been frequently coming back to my blog and being disappointed that I haven't updated And Kate with new posts recently. However I will now promise not to do this again, for mine and you, my followers sakes, as it has been so difficult not to do a post. Here are a few snaps of what I have been admiring in my bookworm of a life lately!
