    I love the run up to Christmas.
    Late November sees me eager to pop the decorations up, playing Christmas music on the TV, burning spiced infused candles and shopping for toys.
    Then as Christmas Eve arrives the hole family gets ready, preparing tomorrows meal whilst sipping on a glass or two of wine.
    Christmas day brings happiness, and chaos when the whole family (9 adults and 11 children) huddle around a cosy table to eat our dinner.

    I guess my favourite part is going to the forest to choose our tree, coming home, putting the Christmas music on & watching the Children decorate it. They’re singing along while happily decorating, it’s the start of the most magical time of the year πŸ˜‰

    Everything!! I love our four children (now aged between 7 and 18) coming into our bedroom on Christmas morning to open their stockings, seeing their faces when they unwrap the presents they really wanted. However, I also love going to church on Christmas morning, singing some of my favourite carols and sharing Christmas wishes with our church friends and family. Love cooking for my family, and then love chilling out in the afternoon, once washing up is done and the dogs have been walked – best feeling ever!
