    they didn’t have any bunting sadly.
    They didn’t have much in primark at all tbh. I was looking for Xmas pjs I saw some lovely grinch ones but of course not one pair in my size. Nothing for the kids. I’m kicking myself for not ordering from Asda when they came online a couple of weeks ago!
    I did get Harvey a baby yoda eye mask for his stocking as he’s been asking for one and thought this was so cute!

    Well this is annoying haha.

    @leoniebabey ah no worries, thank you for looking they're on ebay for £10+ but not justifying that.

    @Babybump87 they're £6.99 in HB, I bought her series 2 strawberry one from there this time which I couldn't get last year. Marshmallow, donut and coconut are the new series 3

    Went to the huge Home and Bargain here in Liverpool, its near the depot so stock levels are usually pretty good. I wanted some of the candy/sweet decorations to make a wreath for my front door and got some bits but there was a couple of things I'd seen on YouTube that they didn't have so I'll have to keep my eyes peeled in other local stores the run up to Xmas. Also got some more presents:
    Zuru robo dinosaur
    Mini wwe the rock figure
    2 lotta looks cookieswirlc dolls,
    Reeses huge selection box
    Reeses cups cane
    Tango selection box
    What's that smell game
    Soap and bath bomb kit
    2 packs of morphe dough
    Bath spaghetti

    Went to my mums local shops. So many have closed down. Only thing there really is a Primark, h&m and Poundland.

    Got a few stocking bits though:
    Christmas PJS for girls (Primark)
    Gel pens/magic pens
    Socks for sisters hamper box
    Advent calendars (elf on the shelf from Poundland)
    Hair bands
    Elf on the shelf baubles x2 (Poundland)
    Wrapping paper x4 rolls
    Sellotape

    Decided we're going to do the elf's as usual but no December 1st box. Instead the elves will bring little bits a pieces throughout the month.

    My mum (who I had zero ideas for) asked for a travel mug today. So I'm going to do her a 'tea' hamper. I've ordered a travel mug and normal mug from Cath Kidston then add some tea bags and her favourite treats.
    She also pointed out a few jumpers and PJs.

    Argh I've been using the credit card! Will have to pay it all back when the statement comes in!

    Its an awesome store, not my nearest but worth the drive :) I love the Xmas ranges this year, I could have bought loads more if not for money and space constraints ;)

    Got the kids Xmas eve pjs. Asda had re-stocked sizes online. My local Asda is having a revamp and the clothing selection is very limited right now so not sure what kind of selection they would have got so ordered now. Not going to do us all matching this year but the kids will be matching.
