🎅🏼 Dear Santa,
I haven’t wrote to you in a while, I’m sorry. This time I’m not asking for much not like other years when I wanted half the Argos catalogue.
I can guarantee you it won’t cost you a penny and it’s as light as a feather so would be easy to deliver.
I don’t know where to start but I guess I’ll start right here.
Since last Christmas I have been rather under the weather. Spending time in hospital living the unknown. I didn’t ask for any of it but this I wanted to ask.
Please on Christmas Day or at the stroke of 12 for new year. Can you please bringbetter health, a permanent smile and the love of my life if you can find them.
I hope it’s not too much to wish for but I really think I deserve it. Plus I’ve been super good ( well 90%).So will say this to you in advance
These are my top 4 films I enjoy watching at Christmas which also give me nostalgic vibes.
This time of year Gremlins is either on prime or Netflix or if you’re lucky on normal TV. Think I was about 7 or 8 when I first watched it and being scared shitless for at least 6 months that one would be living somewhere in the house. Gizmo was super cute though.
I think since I was little I have watched The Snowman every Christmas. Its like a tradition now. I remember wishing that when we ever got snow the snowmen we made would go ‘walking in the air’ with us too. One was hoping 🙈
Well actually I enjoy this film all year round. But it has a Christmas theme to it. There’s comedy, romance and eye candy. What else could you ask for in a film.
The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe
Wow I love thinking of how magical this film was. We always tried to get to Narnia via mums walk in wardrobe but it never happened so it was playing make believe for us. My favourite characters in the film were Mr Tumnus, Edmund and Aslan the Lion. There was when I was younger the cartoon version before they made the chronicles of Narnia both amazing and mesmerising to watch.
What are your favourites?
Christmas is the one time of year you can pig out on whatever you want and not feel guilty about it… OK only if you can’t fit into any of your clothes after.
So I was thinking what makes my Christmas when it comes to food.
Out of all the chocolates in celebrations the Malteser has to be my fave. If I’ve been near the tub first you’ll be lucky to see any.
I haven’t always loved mince pies only since I’ve got older. I appreciate a homemade one because someone’s took their time to make it and aren’t mass produced. But then again give me a Mr kipling one any day too. Indecisive me 😂
I am the weirdo in my family who loves sprouts, not just at Christmas, literally anytime. Best vegetable ever.
Sorry to any vegetarians but this makes my Christmas when I see it on my plate. I don’t like the cranberry sauce some have with it, just lashings of gravy.
Pigs in blankets. Yes please. Nothing more needs to be said.
Say cheese… I am a cheeseaholic anyway but love it at my aunties when the cheese board comes out. My eyes light up.
Tried stollen last year and bloody loved it, its just what the best dreams are made of… Dunno what’s in it but it gets a 10 from me.
So there you go some of my favourite foods to tuck into this time of year.
What do you love getting your teeth into?
We are on day 12, half way there.
I thought this would just be fun wrack your brain kind of post so here goes with my A to Z of Christmas
Why not give this a go and see what you can come up with.
Feel free to tag me in it if you do.
Giving back at Christmas.
Me and my mum are so fortunate to have a roof over our head at the most celebrated time of the year.
Also to be lucky enough to have a big ass roast dinner. Some people don’t have any of these luxuries.
So this year we both decided to donate £19 to the Salvation Army so they can feed someone this Christmas day and keep them warm at the same time.
I prefer to give than receive at Christmas so this warmed my heart being charitable.
If you feel like you want to do the same have a nosey on
THE SALVATION ARMY WEBSITE
Do a random act of kindness this December.
You know everybody is going to join in on Christmas jumper wearing throughout December so why not be a sheep this once and follow.
Here’s a handful I found on Pinterest that I’d definitely wear
Some are really hideous and cringe worthy but these I think are totally wearable.
Think my favourite ones are the first and last one.
15 days to go 🎄 that’s if you’re counting xx
Who doesn’t love some festive nails…so I have included just a few that you can either get your nail technician to do or if you want to get creative, try them yourself.
Me personally I have naturally long nails so never go to a salon to have them done, and I only wish I had two steady hands instead of just the one 🙈
Happy Monday and I hope your as organised as you can be. There’s still 2 weeks yet.
