Deck the halls with boughs of holly……..
I hate tinsel, inflatable Christmas decorations and cheap branded advent calendars. Some get the impression that I’m humbug when it comes to Christmas, but I’m really not, I just like to keep it in perspective. We’ve dotted a few decorations around the house and it’s starting to feel a bit more like Christmas and I’ve done a big chunk of my Christmas shopping.
You’ll never guess where the decorations (garland, candles and hearts) came from………..
Wilkinsons, they have an amazing selection of classy decorations which are incredibly cheap. Some were only a £1 and I think the most expensive one was £4.
I’ve even splurged and bought a new advent calendar from Not on the High Street. I’ve filled it with gold coins, gingerbread men, spinning tops, glitter and some Luxury Chocolates from Bellucci Chocolates. I accidentally put a chocolate covered coffee bean in the calendar. You should have seen Madame’s face. Priceless!
And of course we can’t forget Father Christmas. He’s (she’s) going to be rather handy on Christmas day.
Just a few more things to organise and then I can start to enjoy the holiday season. Wine and food has been ordered.
