Fab lists!

I made my girls stockings last year and it took me ages, but was worth it in the end. Fortunately I didn't make them too big so don't have to find too many things to put in them.

I usually just fill them with cheap things from pound shop or wilko. Dd1 loves suprise eggs and blind bags.

I made both the boys stocking when they were babies. It took ages but so worth it. I just look the idea that I will still be filling them when they are 16.

Went to the garden centre today to buy bulbs and of course ended up looking at the Christmas decorations. Was very restrained and only bought some glittery acorns and pine cones to work into my garland but there was lots I liked.

I was also admiring the wrapping paper in matlan today. Definitely think I will get some adult paper from there this year.

They're nice! I saw a really nice artificial holly spray in John Lewis for £7. But then I went on eBay and they had similar things for £3 haha so I think I will invest there instead

Itís been a quite a while since I updated this as thanks to work and a car accident I lost my Christmas mojo a bit but with the big day just a few short weeks away and Christmas becoming a generally acceptable subject everywhere now I seem to be getting it back.

My Christmas spending plans got put on hold a bit while I replaced my car but thatís all worked out now so iím back to my Christmas plans. I have done some little bits but I do feel miles behind.

I finished DS1ís advent calendar and Iím half way through DS2ís. Itís not perfect but unless you look really closely you itís not noticeable.

I need to set myself a list of jobs to complete each week now in order to stay on track. This weeks are:
Finish DS2ís advent calendar
Buy secret santa present
Write food shopping list for 23rd-27th
Buy some decorations for my new kitchen tree
Buy the clothing items for the kids stockings
