One of my absolute favourite things about the Christmas period is festive films. I have personal favourites that are classics but I also love watching the super cheesy made for TV films as well. This year is the first year that Erin might actually be interested in some Christmas films so I thought I’d share some of my favourite Christmas films for all the family. Miracle On 34th Street For me, Miracle On 34th Street is such a classic now and I can’t believe it is 24 years old now. Richard Attenborough plays Kris Kringle and a Santa in a department
I’m not sure I’ve ever really made proper resolutions in the traditional sense but for the past few years I have made goals for both the family and for work. Usually at this time of year I would be posting about what I want to get done or do over the next year but for the past 2, maybe more, things haven’t really gone to plan. I start every year with really good intentions. Last year I wanted to make sure we spent the day as a family on Sundays but instead it’s turned into a day where John and
What We’ve Been Watching is a monthly feature where we talk about everything we’ve been watching over the past month. It might be something on Netflix, NOW TV, Sky or even just a DVD we’ve had for years but wanted to watch again. If we’ve been watching something new we’ll talk about that too! *May contain spoilers so read with caution! NOW TV I’m going to do a bit of a cheat here. On Black Friday I treat us to 6 months of NOW TV movies as it was on offer for only £4.50 per month. John and I love
AD – We received these items for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own. Before a New Year starts I like to make sure I have everything in order and that means being super organised. John just goes with the flow and is happy to go along with any plans I make. Generally, I just need to ask him to book the time off work or make sure the dates are okay. Being the person that keeps track of everything for not only myself but John and Erin as well means needing some items to help me
AD | We received a complimentary meal for the purpose of this post. It’s been quite a while since we managed to get into Norwich for a family day out. John works a lot of Saturdays and Sunday is his swimming day with Erin so that doesn’t leave us with a whole lot of time. We were determined to get out before Christmas though so last Friday we headed into the city to watch a screening of Zog and some lunch. Somewhere we hadn’t been to for a while is Turtle Bay and they now have a new children’s menu so
AD – Gifted items The New Year is just around the corner and while I don’t really make resolutions as such, I do like to start the year in a certain way. Just before Christmas I like to have a good clean up and clear out of things we don’t want or need. Right after Christmas I like to get really organised and put things away as soon as possible to make sure life can get back to normal quickly and without any hassle. I think starting the New Year being tidy and organised can really help you to have
In the middle of November I received an email I never could have expected. The email was to call a meeting at Erin’s nursery and the private school attached to it. Unfortunately, the meeting was full of bad news and we were told that unless a miracle happened, the school and nursery would be closing in either 2 or 4 weeks. Shocked and upset cannot even begin to cover how I felt. We had spent a whole year going to open days to get Erin ready for this nursery and we knew that we picked the right place for her.
AD | Collaborative post Moving into a new home can be hard. We made the plunge about three years ago now and since then, we have slowly been doing more and more home improvements, but it takes time. The thing about making a house feel like a home is that you cannot do it overnight, unfortunately. Of course, purchasing products that you love helps and incorporating meaningful items from your past homes helps, as well, but be patient and you will get there.
