The first day of Christmas.

Happy 1st December!

Its this time of year already, and though I’ve struggled to get into the festive spirit recently, today that all changed. Its like I woke up this morning and everything was different. Instead of grimacing under the stress of to-do lists, today I’ve been a cheery little elf, its been all about Christmas songs, organising, ticking off those to-do’s and finishing up the decorating.

I’m actually ready to enjoy this month, and I have got a fair few things coming up to enjoy – but more about that next week.

This year, I’ve broken a record, my own record. This year I haven’t bought one single new Christmas decoration. not one. But yet everything looks different. This, I know is down to the radiator cover re-style a month or so back, and the chair re-paint I did back in the summer. Everything feels much more together this year.

And while I’m talking things I haven’t done this year – be obsessive about the decorations is another. When I dragged everything out on Wednesday night, the girls were of course very excited. Instead of the usual “Its okay, mummy can do it” I just let them crack on. Granted I have had a teen, tiny faff about with those baubles since. but not a lot, really they did a good job!

As always, I’m embracing the traditional style this year. ┬áIts just the style that gives me the most cosy, comforting, Christmassy feeling. I don’t think I’ll ever change it.

 

 

Happy first day of Christmas!!!
