Christmas Countdown: Merry Christmas

  MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS! I can’t imagine that many of you are actually reading this on Christmas Day, but if you are then I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hopefully I’m providing you with some respite from overbearing relatives 🙂 If you’re not reading this on Christmas Day, don’t worry, I’m not […]

Christmas Countdown: Happy Christmas Eve and Baking Stress

Happy Christmas Eve my little virtual elves! Are you feeling Christmassy? I have been moaning for weeks about not feeling festive but as I was driving to WORK on Monday morning something just clicked! I am finally starting to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year and I have Christmas songs on every chance […]

Christmas Countdown: How to Wrap a Bottle

I don’t know about you but I totally grudge buying bottle bags. 9 times out of 10 they look tacky and then minute you’re given that bag you know exactly what it is! Don’t get me wrong, I always appreciate wine but when I give it as a gift, I wrap it like a boss. […]

Christmas Countdown: Morrisons Christmas Shop

Are you a Morrisons shopper? We certainly are so you can imagine that we jumped on this deal when it first came out in October. Basically the whole idea was that every week in the run up until Christmas you would qualify for a voucher when you spent over £40 in store. Spend WAY over […]

Christmas Countdown: Progress Update

We’re nearly there! I can’t believe that I’ve managed to blog for 18 consecutive days (with another 7 to go)! You know what this means? It’s exactly 1 week until Christmas! With that in mind I thought today’s post would be a sort of progress report. So far I have bought the majority of my […]

Christmas Countdown: Dear Santa

Dear Santa, Please forgive my sporadic communications! I may only directly contact you once a year but be assured that you are in my thoughts most of the time. I love your work, by the way. You really did pull it out the bag last year was – truly spectacular – and you made this […]

Christmas Countdown: Craftaholics Anonymous Gift Exchange

Remember a few weeks ago, before the madness of my Christmas Countdown, where I shared with you that I was taking part in the Craftaholics Anonymous Christmas Gift Exchange? Well I did it! It’s all over! The fat lady has sung! My gift has been delivered and I received a gift in return! Let’s go […]

Christmas Countdown: Christmas Traditions

Today I want to talk about Christmas traditions. Christmas is kind of a big deal in my family. Not only do we go over the top with presents, we have a huge Christmas Day meal and also a HUGE Boxing Day meal. Our houses are kitted out with twinkly lights and massive Christmas trees, and […]
