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! …

Father Christmas Delivered Our Deliveroo

The lead up to Christmas this year has been so incredibly magical already. The girls have been spoilt with different days out, adventures and visits to see Father Christmas. But I don’t think they were quite prepared for when Father Christmas came walking down the road with our Deliveroo order, a sleigh and two reindeers. The girls had seen the …

Father Christmas Experience At Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park

Every year since I was a little kid I can remember heading off to the garden centre to visit Santa with my Grandparents. It was a Chrismas tradition that I absolutely loved. There is an 8 year gap between my little brother and me so I still got to see Santa up until I had my first daughter. Then the …

My Letter From Santa Claus Review

I can’t quite believe how fast Christmas is approaching this year. It’s just a month away and I feel completely unprepared this year despite the fact we have actually done our toy shopping. I do feel super festive though and am determined this year to push the festivity to the limits. My Letter From Santa Claus got in touch recently …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Our First Christmas Adventure To Santa’s Grotto

It’s December. Where the heck did this year go?! December means it is the run up to Christmas and of course that means decorations go up and presents are either bought or definitely about to be. We were invited along to Westfield Stratford City for the girls to visit Santa. We only told them about our trip the day before …

A Letter From Santa

I can’t believe I’m about to write a post about this, already, but with Halloween over it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. There I’ve said it, I’ve said the C word. I am so excited about Christmas this year but I haven’t actually started even thinking about it yet. The shopping, the decorating and the food. We were contacted …

Christmas Party 2014

Every year my MiL holds a little gathering for all the family. I remember the first party I went to. I had felt super nervous as it was the first time I was going to meet hubby’s family. They all live pretty far apart so having a full family gathering is quite spaced. The first year I was pregnant with …

“I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I receive gifts”

There’s certainly a trend in the blogging world right now with Christmas just two weeks away! Every where I look there’s photos of Christmas decorations, food, gift guides, Christmas jumpers and product reviews. Oh the reviews are coming in thick at the moment for me and at times I’ve felt completely overwhelmed and slightly scared I’ll lose some readership by …

“Christmas is all wrapped up”

Last year P1 was very ungrateful for her birthday and Christmas presents. We’d forked out a lot of money to get her a Schleich farm house and various accessories – anyone who knows what I’m talking about will know that a tiny animal costs around £4. At 5 years old, children just don’t understand value. This year we vowed to …

Dear Santa, I hope you don’t mind too much but this year I have added another child to your delivery list under this household. I always struggle with choosing presents and the girls have been so lucky thanks to my blog this year that they don’t really need much. In an ideal world I’d love to get a new storage …

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 …
