It’s taken me two weeks but I’ve just about recovered from the kids birthdays and I am now officially feeling festive! We got the Christmas tree up on Sunday, complete with a gorgeous new leather decoration* courtesy of Yoshi. They have some really cute designs and their stuff is such good quality. You can’t beat twinkling lights and nostalgic decorations for getting you in the festive mood, can you?..


I also got all my wrapping done yesterday evening thanks to Instawrap… helloooo, Miss Organised! It’s so quick & simple to use, just lick & stick. No more time wasted trying to find the end of the sellotape or getting tangled up. It’s just £3.99 for 2 sheets* which is great value for something that will save you a tonne of time and effort. I’m hoping they’ll launch a birthday range soon so I can get stocked up for the coming year.

We also went to Lidl over the weekend so we’re good to go with a tasty looking five bird roast and enough gravy to sink a battleship. Now all I need to do is make sure we’re stocked up for our traditional breakfast in bed of Apple & Maple Pancakes and we are all set!

I’d love to hear about your Christmas traditions in the comments below (please note I’ll be stealing the best ideas and passing them off as my own in years to come)…
