Getting ready for Christmas

It's the month before Christmas. 2015 is wrapping up and it's hard to believe that we are into the final weeks before Christmas. I know.. It feels like Summer has only just begun, but here we are getting everything in order for the most magical day of the year.

I am excited to announce that I have finally started Christmas shopping, it has taken me long enough, but it has finally happened. Festive mode has officially been switched on and over the next few weeks, Leo and I are going to be really getting into the spirit! 

It all starts tomorrow at Webbs of Wychbold where we will be attending the outdoor ice rinq and skating under the stars. We went along last year and had the most magical time, and I can't wait to see how he gets on this year! Of course I expect tomorrow will mean that we finally get to switch on Michael Buble's Christmas album for the first time this year!

 The gifts are starting to come together nicely, I actually just today purchased a Sea Monkey Set. I adored these when I was a child, and I can't wait to see Leo's face once he see's the eggs hatch and those unique little shrimp start swimming around. I have even been having a think about the stocking front. It's a tradition that I love, and each year I make sure that Leo has a stocking to open on the big day. I don't spend a fortune on them, they are just fun little bits and bobs,

This year I thought about what I actually spend on the stocking and the contents, and decided to have a look at the pre-filled stockings that you can get readily made up. 

They are a great idea if you have looked high and low for the perfect contents, already have a budget in mind, or cannot find a decent sized stocking to hold everything. Stocking Fillers have a number of different stockings for a wide range of people:

- Girl Stocking 3 Plus
- Girl Stocking 14 Plus
- Female Stocking
- Boy Stocking 3 Plus
- Boy Stocking 8 Plus
- Boy Stocking 14 Plus

I am making it my personal mission to be completely wrapped and finished before Christmas Eve, so that come night fall I can relax with a well deserved mulled wine, and watch the Christmas television line up with Leo.
