So this week I embarked on my christmas card writing marathon.
If I was writing this last year, I didn’t require a christmas card writing marathon. I have never been one for cards to be honest (Mrs Scrooge rears her head once again).
However last week our little man received a couple of cards from his friends at nursery. Obviously I didn’t want him to become mini scrooge so off to the shop I popped to get a load of cards to write for all the friends in his nursery room.
I am looking forward to christmas, honestly I am. It will be nice to have 10 days off with hubby and little man. The strange thing is that this time of year is all about family and everyone being together – well this year it will just be the three of us, no parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, brothers, sisters etc.
Not by choice, but due to everyone living in different parts of the country. We made a conscious choice not to travel with little man as we want to start traditions up in our own family home.
Unfortunately all our family feel a similar way, that christmas isn’t the same in someone else’s home.
We are planning on having a nice brunch followed by christmas dinner altogether at about 3.30pm when little man wakes up from his nap.
I cannot wait to see his little face when he sees all the boxes and sparkly paper and lights downstairs on Christmas morning – not that he will know what is going on.
Daddy can have a nice time putting toys together, little man can enjoy playing with the paper and the boxes and I will be trying to tidy everything up whilst drinking bucks fizz.
What are everyone’s plans for Christmas Day next Friday? A big festive party or a small get-together?
