If you’re like me and are only just starting your Christmas shopping now in December, then you may be stuck for ideas. I probably should have started my Christmas shopping a little bit earlier, but luckily I don’t have too many people to buy for and I think I’m almost all sorted. Thank goodness for online shopping! I much prefer being in the comfort of my own home (in my onesie, obviously) than in town trying to find somewhere to park and then battling the crowds in stores. Most of my presents have been delivered now, although I feel so…

It was Liams birthday last month, and I had pretty much no idea at all what to get him! I did consider a smart watch, but he said he hates wearing watches so I needed to buck up my ideas.

He even gives me lifts to the train station regularly, makes me things to eat, and hoovers my bedroom, without me even asking him. He does…

I’m also thinking about making her a little girlie at home afternoon tea party with my sister and my little niece this weekend. Cutting up little finger sandwiches, baking some scones and cakes, and getting out all of the pretty china I insist on collecting! I’ve also got her vouchers for her favourite restaurant as a gift, as well as a few extra goodies, so here’s a few…

We aren’t massive on Christmas in our family. It’s definitely more about spending time with loved ones and eating a hell of a lot of nice food, rather than buying extravagant gifts. I know some people buy their parents laptops etc and receive very luxurious gifts, but we don’t usually buy each other big things. My parents always ask me not to buy them anything in fact, but I get them a little something each anyway. It’s always nice to have something to open on Christmas morning. And they usually get me one gift, but nothing too fancy, just a…
