Pointshoot… It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Christmas. There I said it, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. As a self proclaimed scrooge this is not my favourite time of year and actually, it hasn’t felt at all Christmassy to me yet. I can’t quite believe it is only three weeks away! That said preparations are underfoot. The tree is up, presents (well some) have been brought, and planning is starting to happen. We may be debating getting a sneaky last minute break in to really throw us out of kilter but hey ho… I am sure I’ll still be able to get all the Christmas malarkey ready… I hope. SO anyway here is our festive week in photos…

'Tis the the season and all that…. Current status; officially p*ssed off πŸ˜’. I had a humungo bed to myself last night, with the promise of an early night, a full restful sleep and a potential lie in. None of those things happened. Obviously. I saw most hours, mum flu is still alive and well (unlike myself) and we were up at the crack of dawn. Just two toddlers negotiate through the day. Two toddlers who have all the toys in the world yet insist on asking 'what we doing now?' Who hang off my ankles waiting for me to magic up a dose of fun and are only capable of talking in that whiny mcwhiny voice that toddlers do best. Happy Sunday y'all πŸ€— #servesmeright after my braggy mum post yesterday about Christmas tree success story. πŸ™„πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

    Hope you’re feeling better soon. I have to agree though that mulled wine is a)medicinal and b) a big positive about the festive season!!! #FamilyFunLinky

    Love love love the pic of your kids in their costumes – sometimes it’s best to choose your battles and just go with it. #familyfunlinky

    I always love these pics and your IG gallery – you strike the right balance of real and aspirational with your lovely cheeky little people being so adorable in the pics interspersed with your lifestyle pics. I have to say I warm up to Xmas slowly too. I’ve realised over the years if we go in all guns blazing on the 1st my eldest very much has Christmas fatigue by the 25th. Wishing you and yours a good December hon xx #familyfunlinky P.S twin 2 just saw the pics too and told me to STOP when she saw the fancy dress photo and said she LOVED it :-) xx

    Kind of feeling glad that I’m not the only scrooge at Christmas time. We have the house decorated and 99% of the gifts are bought… I try to enjoy the season as much as I can but just find it to me a mostly stressful month and I’m happiest on Christmas day when all the hoopla is over.

    Love seeing festive pics everywhere and your little ones look so happy! :) #pointshoot

    What a lovely bunch of photos! and now I definitely need a Mulled Wine . I absolutely love the photo of them hugging in your daughters supserhero top! What a perfect photo. I can understand how you had all the Mum feels xxxx

    Why have I not had a mulled wine yet..?? I am seriously slacking with my festive spirit this year. Haha. Your photos are lovely, as is your Xmas tree. Mine isn’t up yet. I’d better get on with that soon – Molly keeps asking about it ha x #FamilyFunLinky

    I’m a bit of a scrooge myself, I think the whole season just goes on too long. That being said, if the rain holds off I’ll be off to pick up our tree today. Pics to come i’m sure #familyfun

    I love the “serves me right” comment – I feel that way SO often! (It’s usually about head lice – the day I think “Wow, it’s been a while!” BOOM – someone’s got them.) But seriously, get better! Mom colds and flus suck like crazy. I’ve been hanging onto a cold for over a month now. :(

    I love it when it gets to this time of the year. I’ve put up two trees this year to really get into the spirit of things!

  25. December 8, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    You take such great photos of you kids but also of the drinks and such. I’m still working on how to take better photos:) #FamilyFunLinky

  26. December 9, 2017 / 8:55 am
