I’m like a child in a sweet shop at Christmas. I get really excited, I love the whole run up to Christmas, the shopping, the wrapping, but most importantly making the house look all Christmassy. We haven’t put our decorations up yet, what will illness and finding time, it hasn’t happened yet. This weekend however the decorations are going up!
