Merry Christmas!!!

It's that time again :o)

Two very excited boys went to bed at 7:00 and were asleep by 7:30 - result!!! Admittedly, Ben did have to stay in the room with them until they fell asleep, but they did :o)

Today has been a bit of a crazy rush of cleaning and tidying, so that everything is conducive to a relaxing evening before the big day (well, as relaxing as it can be when Santa is on his way).

Sprouts were prepped in the lounge whilst listening to Carols from Kings College on BBC2 - very rock ´n roll, and Ben has just finished in the kitchen prepping the carrots and parsnips.

We had fun making crackers (which are now sat on the tree waiting for lunch tomorrow).

Christmas tunes will be playing shortly, Santa sacks are hanging from the door, and the tree is ready for Santa to arrive and add the finishing touches.

And finally... mince pies, carrots, and milk are ready and waiting to provide sustenance to help Santa and his reindeer along the way.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!!



  1. Merry Christmas, the tree looks lovely, big hugs and kisses to you all x x

  2. Merry Christmas, mine went to bed no problem but woke up at 1am :-( managed to get them back to bed until 6am but it meant I woke up in a bunk bed haha, the joys of christmas :-)

    1. 1am? Yuck!!! I thought 4:30 was bad enough, although at least yours went back to sleep. I'm going to bed soon as I'm dead now :-)
