Christmas seems to be so much more fun with children around. They’re coming home from school with cotton wool snowmen and cut out snowflakes. They’re practising their Christmas songs and learning lines for the nativity. Their latest favourite read is the Argos catalogue (why oh why did I pick one of those up?) and every trip to the shopping centre needs a plan for avoiding the Disney shop. Those little ones are getting excited.
I’m very conscious and a little sad that those years of magic are very fleeting so I’m determined to make the best of them. Perhaps in a way, I’m wanting to relive the the magic I remember from my own childhood. Of course I also learnt the true meaning of christmas and our kids will too, but in the meantime there’s no reason why it can’t be fun.
We (with an adult of course) put ours on the open fire, and sent it up the chimney… or you could do

So off to Jewsons I go for some pipe insulation (all will become clear – I promise). Love it there – shopping with all those builders – surreal.
I’m dedicating this post to the mums who are no longer with us, for whatever reason.
