The Christmas Tag

Only a few sleeps until Christmas so I thought I’d do a fun Christmas post today. The awesome Beth from Twinderelmo tagged me in The Christmas Tag which is a series of fun festive questions so I thought I’d give that a go. You can ready her answers here, but give mine a wee read before you click! What’s your favourite Christmas movie? Muppets Christmas Carol is my absolute favourite. I used to watch it every Christmas Eve with my mam and hearing the songs from it just makes me feel all warm and festive. I also love The Nightmare […]

A #CraftyChristmas with Gel-A-Peel

My favourite thing about Christmas is doing things together as a family. Whether something big, or something small, it’s just nice to have a bit of time together doing something fun. Watching Christmas movies snuggled on the sofa, baking cookies together or writing out Christmas card while listening to festive music, I love it all. The lovely people from Gel-A-Peel recently got in touch to see if we would like to take part in their Crafty Christmas challenge, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity for us to do something a little bit different as a family. Something festive, […]

Something Kinda Festive

This week things have been feeling pretty darn festive. I think it’s a combination of the decorations being up, Christmas music playing everywhere and the half eaten tub of Celebrations on our kitchen table, but my goodness it’s getting christmassy.

The twinkling lights, candles everywhere, warm cosy evenings in front of the fire, family days out doing Christmas things. They are the best parts of the festive period for me, and this week has […]

Dressing the Windows for Christmas

There may still be a few days until it’s December but things are starting to feel very festive around here. The tree is up, coloured lights twinkle, the fire is roaring and Santa takes pride of place on the sideboard. I love my house at Christmas time, it feels so warm and inviting. The mismatch of decorations lovingly picked over the years are a reflection of our family, in a way. And for me, that’s kinda perfect. One thing that has been overlooked in the six years we’ve lived here is the windows. While we have acquired a lovely collection […]

So I’m Kind of a Christmas Person

Ok, so I’m kind of a Christmas person. My ‘sleeps until Santa’ countdown started in September. Yes, I’m one of those people. And now that Halloween (which is my second favourite holiday, by the way) is behind us for another year, I think it’s fully acceptable to start taking about Christmas. I’m getting ready to don my musical jumper (I don’t actually have one, but wouldn’t that be amazing?) pop on my favourite festive tunes and buy my yearly bottle of Baileys, how frickin’ exciting. When I say I’m one of those people, I really do mean it. I practically live for […]
