The 4 gift guide rule…I’m adopting…

This will be Sonnys second Christmas and although its all very exciting I find buying presents for him really tricky not to mention, what do you get a child that seems to have everything ohh and don’t get me started on the toy mess!

Last year he was 5 months old and didn’t really need anything major plus he had no idea what was happening so buying gifts seemed really strange.

This year I have tried to  think about a Christmas list for him, ready in case anyone asks me but most importantly I have decided that I am going to adopt the 4 gift guide rule as a way to streamline what we give him; that way it will be consistent each year and fair.

A Christmas night in….

I love a night in…good thing with a toddler in tow! So it’s no surprise that a Christmas night in is my ultimate fav thing to do! Hot chocolate in hand whilst gazing at the twinkly Christmas tree, festive film on TV and a bottomless pit on chocolates perched on your lap…calories don’t count at Christmas right??!

Whether its with the girls or the hubby, I love nothing more than making the house super cosy, snuggled in my Pjs with that excited feeling in the air.

Wintery nights are even more exciting again now we have Sonny and I definitely want to pass on some Christmas traditions and that fluttery festive excitement down to him.

Our nights have consisted of Christmas books before bed, hot chocolate and plenty of vlogmas viewing along with present wrapping…of course sipping on mulled wine and with the big Chrismas eve only a few days away that dizzy childish feeling is approaching thick and fast….

I wish you all a cosy snuggly and delish Christmas

Christmas Wreath Making……

Last Saturday I indulged in my first festive activity of 2016, I donned the Christmas jumper, slicked on that red lip, munched on my first mince pie and OMG what fun we had….Emily or American Emily as we/I like to call her was super organised this year and had seen advertised  Christmas wreath making workshops.  Wreath making is something I have always wanted to do and with Emily’s promise of prosecco whilst we get crafty I obviously jumped at the chance to book a space!
