Now that our house move has been postponed till mid January, we are trying to feel properly Christmassy . Our tree is now up & twinkling beautifully :) I also went to Carols by Candlelight with my Mum & had a good old sing song. Saint Christophers Curch looked beautiful as we arrived.
It's certainly getting us all in the mood. Sheena x
I've taken part in this project over at least the last 4 Christmas's. I love the idea of recording the big & the small things that make Christmas so very special plus all the family activities & birthdays that fall in this month too. The only down side for me is I never finish my journal on time & end up playing catch up over a few months. So this year I thought long & hard about whether I should start a journal whilst packing up a house to move but the family consensus was YES. I've gone for a different size & I'm limiting both the time I spend on the pages & the amount of embellishment too to try to help me stay on track... so here are 1-5.
I know we all lead busy lives and our children do too but today I took the time to really watch my daughter enjoy herself and show how confident & skilful she has become. It was cold despite being bundled up but well worth it as her smile kept me warm on the inside x
I know Christmas is on it's way when I recieve a stunning Poinsettia from my parents.
This has become a tradition over the last few years and I love it. It stands on the kitchen windowsill looking so cheery & festive that you can't help but feel a little in the Christmas mood :) Now I just need to remember to keep watering it !
