Christmas is always crazy in this house, it’s a manic month filled with none-stop preparation for the big day. Once Christmas is done and dusted we are finally able to relax in a seasonal slump, which is usually when the days begin to merge into one and other and I lose track of the time, day, date and year…
So before I delve into yet another tub of Treeselets whilst watching the television, here are a few of my #LitteLoves from the past month.
Earlier this month I put together a box of Christmas books which has since taken pride of place in my daughter’s bedroom. The kids and I have rather enjoyed reading through a selection of festive fiction in the run up to Christmas. I personally rather enjoyed Rachel Bright’s ‘All I Want For Christmas‘ which I much recommend should you happen to be on the lookout for a festive, family book.
With it being Christmas, there has been a number of seasonal specials to watch on the television including the latest installment of Gavin and Stacey, which we watched earlier this week and I much recommend to any old-time fans. Without giving away any spoilers, let’s just say that there’s plenty occurring!
Having being gifted a brand new Amazon Echo for the kitchen from my husband this Christmas, we now have Music in every room of the house and I’ve made the most of this by putting together a brand new ‘chick-tunes’ playlist which includes the likes of Tori Amos, Alanis Morissette, Kate Bush, Ani Difranco, Bjork, Skunk Anansie, Garbage, KT Tunstall, Joni Mitchell, Blondie, No Doubt, Suzanne Vega, Paula Cole, London Grammar, Freya Ridings and many more.

As is tradition, I made the annual ‘squidgy chocolate log’ following Delia’s instructions. It looked and tasted delicious but didn’t last too long! I’ve also made countless mince pies, sausage rolls, pigs in blankets and the usual festive food for buffets and such like.
Having being spoilt rotten by the husband this Christmas, I am now the proud owner of a brand new pair of ‘Bedroom Athletics Slippers’. I’ve worn Bedroom Athletics boots for years now and still swear that there simply are no comfier slippers than these.
It’s been a busy but cracking Christmas! The kids were spoilt rotten by family, friends and of course Santa, they had the best day and were given everything that they wished for and more. Watching their little faces as they opened their parcels on Christmas morning was simply magic, it made all the expense and effort well worthwhile.
