Our Christmas 2019

I am sorry that I am still mentioning the C-word this far into January, but it helps to ease my own January/post-Christmas blues. Hands up if you are already thinking ahead for Christmas 2020? Christmas 2017 and 2018 didn’t feel like Christmas at all for me. I didn’t even get round to blogging about 2018 at all. It was horrific. …

An 11th Christmas Eve Birthday

Not only is Christmas Eve the exciting day before Christmas, but it’s also our eldest daughters birthday.  After living in denial during the lead up to her 10th birthday last year, this birthday was really exciting and I felt like everything was organised for her as she turned a huge 11 years of age! Freya always wakes up early but …

Fakemas Our First Christmas Celebrations Of 2019

Christmas is most definitely my favourite holiday of the year. It has this magical ability to bring everyone together, doesn’t it? I also love the decorations everywhere and the sparkle. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and it makes the worst season of my year (winter) much more bearable. You may be wondering why the heck …

A Mum & Daughter Day At The Ideal Home Show Christmas 2018

Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year but weirdly this year has felt the least Christmassy. In fact the whole idea of it has been making me feel anxious and a little sick. Don’t get me wrong it is still my favourite time of the year – I adore the magic! Back in November I saw that …

Christmas Day 2017!

We had a very different Christmas this year. In the past we have spent it round other family members houses. This year was the first year we’ve stayed at home and I quite enjoyed the change. It started how every Christmas starts, with opening of presents. We went a little overboard this year. I’m not ashamed about it though as …

#BLOGMAS Day 22 – Our Fake Christmas Day

Growing up I always spent Christmas Day at my Mum’s house. My grandparents piled round and it was always a really chilled festive day. I’d play with my presents, we’d fill our tummies with food and just enjoy each other’s company. I have many photos of my Nan and Grandad sleeping on Christmas Day. Since we moved to Kent four …

#BLOGMAS Day 9 – Her First Christmas Performance

It’s that time of the year again, the time you either love or hate. Nativity time. I remember P2s first nativity at their nursery. I was so excited and put the effort into making her the angel outfit. P1 had never had nursery nativities and I was working before so never really had the time. This year was P2s first …

#BLOGMAS Day 6 – Bluewater Grotto & Ice Rink

I am loving the decorations everywhere. The way that the anticipation of Christmas spreads such an upbeat joy now that it is December. Recently we had been invited to experience Christmas at Bluewater. I was super excited as they have an ice rink. We bundled the kiddies in the car after school and headed to the shopping mall. I love …

#BLOGMAS Day 1 – The Christmas Tag

I’m not sure if I’m being too ambitious this year with attempting to do both vlogmas on YouTube and Blogmas here on my blog. I’m going to give it my best shot anyway and see how we go this December. So the first post for my blogmas is going to be the Christmas tag. A great place to start I …

I know, I know, it is still November but last weekend we dusted off our Christmas jumpers and headed back to Essex for the Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience. This is my most favourite Christmas event of the year and you have absolutely no idea the amount of excitement I felt that morning. It felt like Christmas had come. The air …

Christmas Gifts For Under £5 With #sdfiverchallenge

For me Sports Direct is associated with my husbands pants and socks. He won’t buy them from anywhere else. We was recently challenged to find some Christmas gifts online for under £5. To me five pounds seems like such a small amount of money to find any decent gifts so of course I was up for the challenge. I couldn’t …

How To Have A Great Christmas With No January Hangover

Christmas is a time of mixed feelings for many of us – we love getting together with friends and family members that we don’t see very often. We also love letting our hair down and maybe even getting a bit tipsy in front of It’s a Wonderful Life. This is the good bit; the not-so-good bit is wondering how to …
