It's almost Christmas!

I have to admit, I'm beginning to feel a teensy bit excited about the forthcoming festivities. Today, I'm mostly loving that:

:: I've wrapped all the santa presents *smug*

:: the cards are all written (just waiting for the husband to sign his ones)

:: I've almost finished making the little gift boxes/hampers I'm sending to our mums

:: I've reached a decision on the tree dilemma - we're having one. A real one. Oh yes. (the destructive 16 month old will just have to learn not to pull it over on top of himself...) 

:: I've discovered a fabulous blog called the Knackered Mothers' Wine Club with advice on wine and champagne (decent tasting cava for £3.99! I'm there!) from a proper wine expert with a sense of humour

:: I can crochet. I can ACTUALLY crochet! It's taken a week of youtube videos but I think I've finally sussed it out. Haven't actually made anything yet mind you...

:: that I've remembered to light candles every night this week, making the houses look and smell lovely

:: it's the end of my working week which means that a weekend of gingerbread houses, baking bread and spending time with my boys is just round the corner

What are you loving today?

Regent Street - oh sparkly!


  1. I have ironing mountain to scale, so that next week can be all creative and lovely with the boys

  2. Sounds like you have lots to look forward to. I still need to buy presents, wrap presents buy and write cards and fit work in too:-)

  3. We decided to go for the tree (big, 9 foot proper one) and 11 month old so far has managed not to pull to over. Fingers crossed. It's just the 2 and 4 year old that keep re-arranging the decorations....Pfff.
    Good luck with yours!


Come on in, the water's lovely.
