It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

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………..

Christmas Decorations from Wilkos


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.

Advent Calendar from Not on the High Street


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!

Father Christmas Fancy Dress Costume

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.

Disclosure – The decorations, chocolates and fancy dress outfit were complimentary for review purposes.
