I so want to be organised, I so want to be ready, for every year on Christmas Eve, you will find me busy wrapping and sorting presents out!
So having found out today is the start of a countdown until The Day arrives, I have decided to this year be different!
So here is my list of ideas and plans to be different and far more organised than ever before!
I love and adore Christmas, there is something about it that is just magical, this year will be a very special one for me and my family, as its out first in our gorgeous new home and we will all be together, the 4 children, 2 cats and I!
I will write a list-
Buy presents only on offer,
make some homemade presents to give to family & friends (this could prove a bit difficult considering I do not have a creative bone in my body!!!)
Write out a menu for 3 days of festivities and stick to it, not overspending at the last moment just in case and then after Christmas realising I didn't need all the extra bits and that so much money was spent on one meal, so this years menu will be on a budget, but adventurous.
Sort out advent calenders before December arrives, yes its normally a last minute panic buy!
Send Christmas cards late November
Decorate house early December
Make cookies/ginger bread men
Make decorations, paper chains to stars for the tree
DO NOT GO MAD, the children only need a few bits
Plan, write, organise, enjoy, make, learn, listen, ask for help and above all, start practising out carol singing ;)
Yippeee.....Eeeekkk.......just 100 Days to go!!!!!
