A Cosy Festive Night In With Morrisons

Several years ago a festive night pre-Christmas would be very different to what it is now. It would probably have involved a pretty dress, a meal out, a drink or two and singing Christmas songs loudly on the way home! Now however, we absolutely love a cosy night in.  A good film, drinks and nibbles. Occasionally we let our six year-old stay up and have a film night with her too. We recently received a box of festive treat’s from Morrisons, for a perfect cosy night in. Morrisons pride themselves on being a one-stop shop for all things Christmas and they really do seem to have all you could need. Our cosy night in started with us all being in our pjs, the Christmas tree twinkling away and the lights dimmed. Morrison’s had sent us Beauty and The Beast so we settled down to watch it. We were sent some lovely sweet… View Post

Getting Festive With a Little Help From B&M

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! Since the children have come along we have always involved them with putting the decorations up. They have so much fun decorating the tree – I sometimes have to do a little altering after. As J is only just two I imagine his input wont be that productive. Last year he enjoyed touching the tree, a lot! Hence a lot of the decorations were higher up on the tree. Fingers crossed, things will be different this year. I try to buy a few new Christmas decorations each year, replace some of the… View Post
