What I’m Reading This Christmas

(BLOGMAS DAY 9)

Christmas break is the perfect time to catch up on two things: reading and watching. If you saw blogmas day 6 you’ll know all my favourite Christmas movies and be up to everything I’m watching currently but I thought it would be fun to share what’s on my reading list too!

In The Bleak Midwinter

(BLOGMAS DAY 8)

We had our church carol service last night, and it was so lovely.

We all stood in the church garden, bundled into our coats and mittens and wrapped in scarves to keep out the biting wind. The kids cracked glow bracelets; the adults sipped mulled wine. The garden was packed and people spilt out onto the street; the whole place was lit up, not just by the pretty twinkle lights but by the sounds of our voices floating into the night.

Towards the end of the service, we turned on the snow machine and the foamy ‘flakes’ floated down and covered us in white. We all sang We Wish You A Merry Christmas together, and then it was over. People left quickly, eager to get back to their warm homes, their Sunday dinners and their televisions. The musicians packed up, we moved the sound system back inside and collected the mince pie wrappers, and I was left standing in an empty garden in the dark.

Bake With Me!!

(BLOGMAS DAY 7)

There is so much to love about the holiday season, so many traditions and so much to celebrate, but one thing that never gets old is a bit of Christmas baking! Cookies, festive cupcakes, crispie treats, gingerbread (hint, hint); this season is full of so much good food! I’m constatly buying more ingredients and trialing new recipes over the Christmas break, but one bake I always come back to is some good old fashioned gingerbread cookies!

My Favourite Christmas Movies

(BLOGMAS DAY 6)

Imagine this: fluffiest pj’s, beside the Christmas tree, roaring fire, hot chocolate with marshmallows and cinnamon whipped cream, dog by your feet, watching your favourite Christmas movie. Cosy socks, huge blanket, popcorn and m&m’s… what could better get you in the mood for Christmas?

I love watching movies year round anyway, but here are (in no specific order) a few of my festive faves!!

My Favourite Christmassy Drink Recipes

(BLOGMAS DAY 4)

I love cups. Well, more specifically, I love drinking things out of different mugs and glasses and jars… ask my mom and she’ll roll her eyes and tell you I ask for a new mug or water bottle or glass just about every time Christmas or my birthday rolls around.

The other thing I love is making fun drinks to go inside my mugs. Coffee, tea, smoothies, juices, flavoured water, I love it!! I tend to drink the same favourite drinks year round but this autumn/winter I have been experimenting with a few new ones, so I thought I’d share my three favourites!

Decorate for Christmas With Me!

(BLOGMAS DAY 3)

You know Christmas has truly started when the house starts to look all festive! We’ve been decorating ever since the weekend when we put our tree up and our home finally looks all cosy and wintery!

For me at least, decorating my house and room is really the point in December when I start to feel actually ready for Christmas, so how could I not share my favourite decorations as a part of blogmas??

A Not So Perfect Q+A

(BLOGMAS DAY 2)

Can you believe,I’m over a year into this little blog ministry of mine and I’ve never done a Q&A!? Well, that’s all about to change because, with it being the first time doing blogmas, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity!

I saw a few blogger friends do posts similar to this a while back and I thought it was such a brilliant way to get to know a bit more about them and their blogs, so I thought, ‘hey, why not do one here too!?’

So here we are, blogmas day 2: A Not So Perfect Q&A!
