Wishing you all ..........................
A very Merry Christmas!
Not long to go now ~ only 3 sleeps and I think I'm getting quite excited!
I am about as prepared as I'll ever be for the BIG day ~ the tree is up and decorated, the presents have been bought and wrapped (and have also been hidden well away from little people who have been doing an awful lot of looking this year!)
The only things that I have left to do is some (a lot!) cleaning and tidying and the dreaded food shopping. It's also our first Christmas in our new home so I want it to be extra special for everyone. I'm actually cooking the Christmas dinner for the first time in ages and I think I'm starting to have a little bit of a panic about it. But I'm quite sure that it will all go well on the day ~ here's hoping!
I'm really looking forward to getting cozy and snuggling up on the sofa with the children on Christmas eve to watch some Christmassy films. We always watch the same films on Christmas eve ~ The Polar Express and A Christmas Carol ~ and it has now become a little bit of a tradition in our house. There may also be a couple of glasses of mulled wine and some Christmas chocolatey goodies thrown in for good measure too!
Then it will be time for the stockings to be hung at the bottom of the beds and a glass of milk and some mince pies will be left for Santa, along with a nice juicy carrot for Rudolph.
I hope that Santa leaves you lots of lovely presents too and that you all have a very Happy Christmas and have all your Christmas wishes come true ~ whatever they may be! :O)xx
