It is officially allowed to be Christmas

So it is officially allowed to be Christmas….and yet I have still not bought one present.

Not one!

I have 3 weeks until Christmas Day. I work in the middle of a City Centre and have access to online shopping on my lunch breaks and weekends. I have no excuse, other than I just cannot bring myself to think about it at the moment.

I know it will take me maybe a few hours once I compile my list of gifts and shops I need to visit. It is just actually getting prepared for it.

On Wednesday night I sat down on my bed and got the Elf on the Shelf out of his box and laid out the advent calendars. I remembered I had a few special Christmas ornaments that I wanted to put up around the house.


It has been a busy few weeks, with no sign of it slowing down.

I am away this weekend visiting family and then have lots going on at work for the lead up to Christmas.

I need to book little mans visit to Santa at White Post Farm, and we have the pantomime on the 17th December which I am so excited about.

Yet I am not in the festive spirit myself just yet. Walking to my car after work, listening to the Christmas music playing out of the restaurants and bars is leaving me feeling a little emotional this year.


So much is changing and so much has changed over the past few months. Sometimes it is difficult to take it all in.

One thing remains the same…my love for my little man. The reason why Christmas is going to be so special and magical. He deserves the best Christmas ever, and he will definitely have that.

So I will continue the journey through December now it is officially Christmas; joining in with Elf on the Shelf even though little man has no idea why this random elf has suddenly appeared.

Happy December everyone! Have you got into the festive spirit yet?

  1. I to have not started my Christmas shopping. Financially I won’t be able to until a week before Christmas. It is a far cry from being done like I usually am by the beginning of November. I hope your Christmas feeling comes soon! #picnmx

  2. I have found it harder this year to find my festive spirit … mostly as we had such a stressful October and November and having children too old to visit santa etc is something I am still getting used to. Now though I am just about ready for it, the tree is up and I feel a lot less grinchy. I really hope you’ve had a good week, feel a little bit festive by now and have an amazing Christmas.

    Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix
