I absolutely love the run up to Christmas, it's all part of the grand celebration.
When I say prep, I don't just mean the festive jobs, my cards are written and posted, all the pressies we have are wrapped and the cakes have been bathing in brandy for weeks (yum) I also mean the jolly preparations, the Christmas shopping with breaks of christmassy hot chocolate, decorating the Christmas tree, the obligatory festive visit to the Bavarian markets. Exciting times!
Last weekend we visited a local farm to choose our Christmas tree from the tree lined barn that also kept their reindeer warm! Yep we chose our tree in the presence of a reindeer, it doesn't get much better than that!
I've visited the Manchester and Leeds Christmas markets and this weekend I'll be visiting the local christmas markets! I know some of you are thinking that's a bit much but come on, it has to be done!
And of course, I've watched numerous festive films in the glow of our Christmas tree lights already! The next few weeks will be spent finalising things and visiting friends and family to gift swap, good times.
How organised are you this Christmas?
