What am I looking forward to in December

Wow, where has the year gone? I cannot believe it is the first of December tomorrow. November has been and gone and with very little excitement so I am looking forward to December and hoping it will be magical. December is typically a busy month what with finishing of Christmas shopping, various school events, all things Christmas and not forgetting the arrival of Buddy The Elf. Last year we introduced Buddy and E loves him, we are not completely strict on the no touching of him as she is only little. She liked a little cuddle every now on then but she would also say I can’t touch him for long as his magic will stop working. E has asked if we will get an Elf again this year, I have told her that I don’t know as there are a lot of children in the world so we might not… View Post

Blossoming Gifts Christmas Flowers Review & Giveaway

I love receiving flowers, who doesn’t? They brighten up a room and just make me feel happy. When it comes to sending flowers finding a decent florist who doesn’t charge crazy prices and delivers lovely flowers isn’t easy.  Recently I have been sent a stunning Christmas Cheer bouquet from Blossoming Gifts, they really are beautiful. Blossoming Gifts have a great range of gifts, hampers and flowers for Christmas, they even have a selection of gifts you can personalise all of which make lovely presents. The flowers I received arrived in a tall, sturdy cardboard box and were packed in well with cardboard and packaging; so there’s no concerns there about becoming damaged when being transported. They are wrapped in cellophane with a handy little card showing you how to prep the flowers to be popped into the vase, and how to prolong their life span. The flowers also came wrapped… View Post

Advent Calendar’s For Children

We are hurtling towards the most magical time of the year, Christmas. It’s only a few weeks away now until the countdown to Christmas begins and the advent season is well upon us. Some form of the Advent Calendar has been used for more than 150 years and becomes increasingly popular every year. From a traditional calendar to calendars that feature popular collectibles and themes, there is an advent calendar for everyone. As a little girl I used to love opening a door on my chocolate advent calendar to see what Christmas shape chocolate was hiding behind it, this little treat was a great way to countdown to Christmas and before I knew it I was opening the last door – which was always the largest chocolate which meant it was Christmas Eve and If I had been a good girl Father Christmas would be coming to our house that night. Advent calendars… View Post

My Favourite Book – The Secret Garden

I am an avid reader. The way I have written that sounds like a confession. I really do love books, there are books in the lounge, books in the kitchen, I have some book in my bedroom and of course the children have books in their room. Whilst growing up there was always a lot of books in the house and both my parents would read so I think my love of books stemmed from that and I think my love of reading has been one of the reasons that E loves to read so much. I have an assorted collection of books that I enjoy reading, I loved all the Harry Potter and the Twilight Saga books, I am a big fan of Jane Austin books too, especially Pride and Prejudice with the wonderful Mr Darcy. There is one book however, that I love more than any other book, it… View Post
