Since moving to Norfolk in 2013 I don’t think John and I have ever had 2 Christmases the same. Last year we had my mum, sister and her fiance staying over the whole of Christmas and our house was full, loud and full of love and fun. This year though my sister and her fiance are going back home and seeing Mum there instead. Christmas this year will mean it being just me, John and Erin. As lovely as last year was I am quite looking forward to having a very small family Christmas at
Ad – We received some items for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own. Last year we had a really busy Christmas as we had my mum, sister and her fiance all staying with us. This meant that I was cooking Christmas dinner for 6 people and while I didn’t go too overboard, it was still quite stressful and it took hours to cook. I hated either being stuck in the kitchen or having to go in and out all day as it meant me missing everything else that was going on.

Apart from Erin, we were all up at about 6:30 on Christmas Day and we had about an hour’s wait
This Christmas is going to be very different from any of the others we have had for a while. Last year it was just me, John and Erin. The year before I was 35 weeks pregnant and only a week away from having Erin. The year before that John and I spent it with his family but we no longer see most of them now. Everyone spends Christmas in their own way so I thought I’d write a bit about how we’ll be spending Christmas Day this year. This year we are hosting Christmas at
This Christmas Erin will be nearly 2 and I know that as soon as she wakes up and comes downstairs she’s going to be majorly excited. I know how tempting it will be to forget about breakfast but Erin, as well as me, John and the rest of my family have a very long day ahead of us. Last Christmas Erin took a couple of days to open her presents, which then merged into her birthday on New Year’s Day and it was never ending. Christmas Day was so exhausting that I think Erin had
