Feeling Festive

So in the spirit of the 1st December, which begun very cold for me and full of Christmas tunes from different radio stations, which admittedly I was skipping to try and find said songs to get me in the mood, I am going to do a festive post. I may have had both of my chocolate advent calender chocs before I left the house this morning…..I leave at 6:25….not greedy at all.

I have decided to attempt blogmas, however I am awful at committing to things so if I manage this challenge/vow to my blog, I have decided I will treat myself to something like a Yankee candle for the house, or maybe some nice wedding shoes 😉 I think it’ll be a great way with me to bond with my blog again and hopefully learn to love writing again.

In the last few days some Christmas items have made it into the house. We haven’t actually done our ‘decorations weekend’ which consists of going to Perrywoods, the most Christmasey shop in Essex, going out for lunch, picking our tree then coming home for an evening of prosecco, pj’s, steak and chips, festive music and decorating, with maybe a smidge of Elf involved.

So these are the first items of Christmas to grace our new home.

So I came home the other day, after breaking down in my new company van (yeeeeh, I was mega happy about that one) and this is what I was greeted with! Penguins, if you hadn’t guessed by now, are my favourite animal so Ben decided to jazz up our new home with this seasonal door mat. I cannot explain how much I love this!

This is an advent calendar my in-laws made for us, cleverly making sure each day had the same chocolates together (or I would’ve stolen the best one). FYI, Cadbury’s Caramel – bellissimo!

Meet Oscar! He made an appearance on our anniversary! We said we weren’t doing presents as it’s silly now we’re due to get married but as I get excited for Christmas in early October, he was exactly what I needed! Lets see if anyone can pick up why I called him Oscar…..

DSC01374It’s a sin to put Christmas DVD’s away with your decorations just incase you have a random festive day during the year and you need your fix! So these are in our big DVD/book storage units and I have to say Elf came out over 6 weeks ago and has been sitting beside the TV…where Peter Pan is now actually haha….for a long time! I really want to say this is my favourite Christmas film but I think it’s level pegging with The Grinch!

These were just a few extra snaps I thought I’d add in for good measure so you can all be nosy 🙂

Is anyone else already as excited for Christmas as I am? Our decoration day is Saturday, which after my first Christmas work party on the Friday, could not come any sooner.

I hope no-one reading this is a festive Grinch! Unsubscribe now if you are as there will be many more posts like this to follow!
