Christmas is coming...

Yes, its the 'C' word. It's been thrown around now for a few weeks and if you're like me, you'll get excited as soon as people start talking about it and it is only 3 months away! 

Because I have to wait all year for Christmas & My Birthday (29th December) I get overly excited, literally like a little girl. I always have done and I think I always will. Like I said, I think because I have to wait a whole year for the presents to come, where most people get birthday and christmas a few months apart, it makes it all the more anxious and exciting for me! 

Now, this year is going to be a whole new story. We have a new addition which means more presents, more christmassy decorations, more everything pretty much! I'm not too sure how well she will understand what is going on as she'll be 8 months come Christmas day but I hope she gets excited when she sees all her new toys and the lights and decorations on the tree etc! 

If you're a super organised freak like me, you may have started writing christmas lists, looking at buying / reserving presents or even already bought presents but, if you're not and you like to make a day of it, why not take a trip to the Capital and make a weekend of it. At the moment, St Georges Hotel London are offering 10% off stays and based on Regent street, you wont have far to lug those bags full of presents. Doing it early also means that it's out of the way and you can enjoy Decemeber, stress free! Go and drink Beer and eat Frankfurters at the Christmas Markets and not have to worry about buying a present until next year! 

So, have you started Christmas Shopping yet? Do you plan on making a weekend out of it?!

  1. I haven't started mine yet, but my mum is almost finished. She normally comes down to stay with me in November & we go to Manchester & Liverpool to pick up some extra bits. I love Xmas shopping.

  2. I actually started my Christmas shopping today....Did it online....hehehe

  3. awww my little one will be 9 months at christmas so he'll probably just enjoy all the wrapping paper. but i too act like a little kid at christmas, so exciting! i love everything about christmas and winter :) xx

  4. I haven't started shopping yet but I have been making a lot of lists. I'm planning on doing a lot of DIY projects to save a bit of money but I'll still be in the Christmas isle of boots to pick up gift sets :p
    I love to go out in London for the day when my sister comes to visit, usually my birthday actually. Do our Christmas shopping, take a look at all the fancy shop window displays and the Oxford St lights!
