Oh how I've been looking forward to writing this post!
'Tis the season to be jolly fah la la la la, la la la laaaaaa!' This line pretty much sums up my attitude to Christmas. It's not just about the day, but the build up to it.
Maybe it's because this time last year we missed out on so much as we were all ill and exhausted, but this year I'm giddy with excitement about the things we can do and the little moments we will share. So much so that I've gone and put together a list so I don't forget to do anything. There's little worse than a wasted opportunity.
Watch Pip in her first nativity
Bring some evergreen into the house
Drink mulled wine
Teach Pip some Christmas songs
Visit my family
Go on some family winter walks
Watch 'Muppet Christmas Carol' with Pip
Bake Christmas cookies
Spread some Christmas joy
Make Christmas cards
Donate some Christmassy bits to the local food bank box as well as the usual bits
Put together Pip's first Christmas stocking (complete with satsuma)
Leave a mince pie, glass of milk and a carrot out for Santa and his reindeer
Listen to a butt load of Christmas music - For Folk's Sake It's Christmas
Here's to a bloody great December everyone.
