The C word

You know the one, the one you shouldn't mention in summer. Well it is now September, so with 107 days to go I will very quietly  whisper Christmas.

I have just treated us to this

It is the most gorgeous advent calendar but the price reflects that unfortunately. I have loved it for years though and I have never been fortunate enough to get one in sale.So with a discount code and a bit of money from selling a sling I have bought one and I can't wait for december to open the little drawers every day with the boys.

I have bought my first couple of presents, just a couple of books, but my aim is to try and craft a lot more this year. I am partway through hubbies first jumper and I think lots of little knitted accessories may be in order. Last year I made some fudge and chocolate marzipans for a secret santa but I think he was fairly unimpressed which makes me hesitate before going down that route again. He is an incredibly difficult person to get anything for though, and I had been unfortunate to get him 2 years in a row. I don't sew, but I can bake. So if you have any crafty Christmas ideas let me know!
