Christmas Traditions

Christmas Traditions

Welcome welcome to the ninth day of blogmas! This post is all about the little Christmas traditions my little family have both old and new. Traditions can really make Christmas special not just for yourself but for your kids as well. In fact my fondest memory of Christmas growing up was every December 1st waking up to my Mam playing Christmas music and then obviously waiting for the Coca Cola advert to come on telly but that comes on so early now it doesn’t have the same effect.

Elf and Christmas Jumper Day

Hello and welcome to the eight day of blogmas! Yes this one is backdated thankfully just by a day as it has been pretty hectic and yesterday annoyingly I was in a state of panic for most of the day.

We have had a pottery painting night, gin and cheese night and we also had a mum’s Christmas party. Read more

So let me introduce you to something my Dad used to make when I was a kid! Pizza toast! Read more

Ra-Ra’s Nativity

Ra-Ra's Nativity

Today I want to be a proud parent and wife for the whole post okay? Well it’s happening regardless and that is because I want to talk to you about Ra-Ra’s first school nativity! Last year in nursery she got to be a shepherd and enjoyed herself but this time whilst doing “Little Red Robin” with all three years in her school she got to sing and dance and be the “glittering star” which to people who hadn’t heard of this rendition of the original nativity (like me and 00Steve) is basically the star of Bethlehem.

Zimpli Kids Gelli Baff

The lovely people over at Zimpli Kids sent me some samples of some of their products to try. Gelli Baff “Lava”, “Slime” and “Snowballs”. This is something 00Steve had bought for some of Ra-Ra’s friends for their birthdays recently and we wanted to try it for our own little cherubs so it was perfect timing really. Read more
