Hosting My First Christmas On Boxing Day

When we moved homes, I was so excited that it was in plenty of time for Christmas. We could finally have a proper sized tree and actually host family. Sadly my MiL has already made plans for Christmas Day with her own in laws so it meant our Christmas was just for us. Instead we decided to host Boxing Day …

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 …

Christmas Eve Birthday 2017!

Christmas Eve in this household is all about my eldest daughter. This little pickle made her early appearance on Christmas Eve nine years ago and since then, Christmas has changed! We put pause to festive plans to celebrate her birthday. She woke up quite early, I asked her to wait a little while for everybody else to wake up. Then …

Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience 2017

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 …

Christmas Day 2016

I was woken up by the sound of two little voices telling me that Father Christmas had been. I had expected an early morning just like I used to wake up before it was light when I was a child. I was all about to get out of bed when I checked my phone for the time. It was 3:40am! …

Christmas 2015

The build up and anticipation for Christmas this year was immense for me. For some reason it all felt so much more magical this year than any other year. I partly blame blogging for that as I am aware of other people’s traditions, decorations and stories that surround Christmas. Since last Christmas we’ve been saving our Nectar and Tesco purely …

Christmas Day 2013

This is the first year in my whole entire life that I haven’t been with my Mum, Nan and Grandad on Christmas! After the mad unwrapping session with the girls this morning I think it really hit me. So much has changed this past year, the biggest and worst change of all was the loss of my Nan.   She …

Pre-Christmas Blues

So it’s gone midnight. It’s Christmas. We’ve sorted the presents into piles and I’m sitting here looking at them all feeling pretty glum. We’ve spent so much this year it’s ridiculous! Birthday, Christmas x2 and Santa x2 was expensive. So why am I feeling so utterly rubbish and nervous for tomorrow?! The piles of stuff is pretty low. When I …
