Chocolates play a big part of Christmas really, don’t they? I mean, every supermarket sells those big tins full of assorted wrapped chocolates for you to buy early, and keep hidden away until Christmas. Mind you more often than not I end up buying two because one normally gets eaten way before advent starts!!!
Having had our Christmas fayre at school yesterday, I have decided to face up to the fact that Christmas is really not that far away now. For me the 1st December marks the start of my own official countdown to Christmas, and is of course the start of advent.
We visited Legoland Windsor at the weekend as part of Burton’s birthday celebrations (blog post to follow). It was a fantastic day and of course we hardly touched all of the rides, so it gives us the perfect excuse to return very soon for another fun (if tiring!) day there.
Summer is almost here now and soon the summer holidays will be upon us, and so will finding things to do with our children, during those 6 or so weeks.
What to buy the man who has everything?
This is a dilema I am faced with for my OH when it comes to his birthday,Christmas and Fathers Day gifts!!! It is not that he is fussy, but he buys what he wants when he sees it throughout the rest of the year and then the things he might want costs too much!!!
