01 December :)

Taken at the County Mall this morning

Emily came down this morning in a very good mood - why? because it's the first of December and she'd opened the first door on her Advent calendar :)

I then had a text from Claire to tell me Alice was very happy to have a chocolate out of her Advent calendar this morning :) and Claire is now feeling festive. I'm told Craig is even talking about putting up their Christmas tree this weekend (but we won't tell Emily that one! Our tree goes up 12 days before Christmas but I know she'd love it to be earlier!).

This morning, Mum and I went Christmas shopping - ready for the long haul!  I don't have much left to do but did pick up a few more presents today, which can be ticked off my list :)  
Now I don't want to jinx things but I am feeling slightly more organised this year. I think perhaps it's knowing I have Alice three times a week and, therefore, need to be more organised.

Whatever it is, I'm hoping for a fairly stress free December and the chance to keep up with Journal Your Christmas/December Daily. I'm still not 100% how I'm doing this but think it'll be a combination of the two.



  1. You already have your DD page ~ Christmas shopping with your mum!

  2. That's what I thought too :) x

  3. I'm feeling fairly organised as well....which is actually a bit worrying!!

  4. Yes, my first thought was that you had the page sorted ... and, you must have been there early, it looks quiet ... though, the shops are not too crazy here either ... yet!

  5. You do sound very organized, which we all know is key to keeping the Christmas spirit. I love doing an advent calendar with children. Fun!
