    It's miserable outside and I'm snuggled up on the couch with my two ladies watching frozen. Yes, it's been watched ad nauseum here but not in the last few months, so now the 21 month old is singing along too :)

    I love that film :) and I don't even have the excuse of having girls :o all boys here :)

    The postman dropped a padded envelope in the letterbox earlier and I was super confused because I'm only waiting on deliveries from Amazon through Parcel Wizard and hadn't ordered anything else. Turns out I won a DVD and no one told me before they sent it out. Nice little extra Christmas present!

    All my decorations are up, just need to wrap all the gifts tonight and then hubby is back tomorrow for the unveiling, almost as excited as christmas eve

    When I look at all I've put up, I think how empty the house looked the first Christmas we were here with one little tree

    The Tesco self service jingle bells and 'Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas' when you finish your transaction always cheers me up no end!

    I have read here in previous years with much envy. My OH and I bought our dream home three years ago. Before moving in he was taken ill, spent Christmas 2012 and 2013 in hospital plus lots of other hospitalisations. Last year I ended up in hospital on Christmas Eve with pneumonia. This year we are doing well. My brother, SIL and little nephew are staying with us for Christmas so Santa will be stopping by. I am beyond excited and never thought I would experience a Christmas like this. Thinking of everyone who is facing a difficult Christmas.

    Discounted Valentine's Day chocolate is my favourite kind of chocolate. :D We don't celebrate Valentine's Day but I'm glad it's a thing so I can have discounted chocolate after it!
