I can’t lie, I’ve been browsing the internet (pinterest in particular) for Christmas ideas a lot lately and I know I will be stoned for posting this on the 9th October but I wasn’t sure I could hold it in any longer. I’m a biscuit away from putting up my Christmas blog header closely followed by my non virtual tree – as in IN MY HOUSE. Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year and so let this signify the start of many more festive posts and videos to come.
Moving on…These are a few of the items I have my eye on right now. As a kid we had a nativity and so once I had my own family I wanted one for my own home but they can be expensive.. I think this year I’ll finally bite the bullet. I’ll always remember putting out all the figured each year.. it was a tradition that I think my children would enjoy as much as I did. Another treasured childhood memory is of my stocking, unfortunately in my last house move it was lost and I’m still not totally over it but I’d really like to get personalised stockings for Milo & Ella for them to keep like I did – hopefully they’ll hold on to theirs. I’ll fess up.. I already bought the Boots advent calender.. £30 is steep but it’s half the cost of some others and everything will be at least vaguely budget friendly so I’m really excited about sharing that with you.. most likely on instagram but I’m considering a mini reveal post every day here on my blog, what do you think? The last highlight has to be these clear baubles which you can fill with whatever you choose and make totally personal. I love the idea of custom decorations and that the kids could have a bauble each to fill. although Milo’s would likely be full of biscuit crumbs.
I’m really trying to reign in my Christmas excitement but it’s proving difficult and once Milo’s birthday has passed (15th Nov) there will be no stopping me. When do you allow your Christmas spirit to escape?
