Christmas traditions. it’s something I’m sure most households have over the festive period, what everyone does though depends on the individuals and what they had when they were growing up. Here are some of the Christmas Traditions we have in our family. Most of them are ones I had a child but as the years have gone on I have added a few of my own and now every year we enjoy doing them. Christmas Films. As soon as December begins I can’t wait to start watching Christmas Films. C is at an age now where he’s really starting to enjoy sitting down all snuggled on the sofa to watch a film. Some of the favourites in our house is Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street, The Snowman, The Santa Claus ( you know the original featuring Dudley Moore) and C has been enjoying Arthur Christmas this year. Speaking of…

We were thrilled to be invited along to experience Christmas at Marwell recently. The day before our arrival the kids were really excited when we received an email from the elves at Marwell the night before our arrival with a special poem: ONE MORE SLEEP For Christmas as Marwell there’s one more sleep A special memory to treasure and keep Whilst in bed I mustn’t peep I’ll close my eyes and start counting sheep And when I wake we’ll make our way To Marwell Zoo for a fabulous day Meerkats squeek and penguins bray I wonder what dear Santa will say … C wanted to wear his Elf Christmas jumper & Santa hat. He also chose Elf to come along with us for the day. So all wrapped up with our scarfs, hats and gloves we headed off. Our time slot to see Santa wasn’t until 14.45 but we had…

So we decided to have a look online to see if they had any tickets for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party before we leave and the only dates they did have were for the next night, the 18th so we went ahead and booked :-D. The party started when the park closed at 7pm and finished at midnight. We arrived at the park for around 6.30pm I think to collect our tickets from the desk. The chap that issued them told us a little about the party seeing as we had never been before – he said there were two parades, one at 8.30pm and one at 10.30pm. He advised we missed the 8.30 performance and make use of the low crowds to queue for rides and that by 10.30 the parade crowd is a lot quieter due to the people with younger kids having left. He also said…

Long time no blog. We are also in to a brand New Year too. Happy 2016 everyone. I hope you have all have had a nice Christmas. I have so much catching up to do and lots has been happening here (hence my lack of posting) but it’s a New Year and I am raring to go with It’s a Blogs Life. So what has been happening …. well back sometime at the end of October I randomly one night browsed the internet for evening jobs. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular but I come across a job advertised that would work perfectly around the family – it was in the evenings, which meant S would be home to watch the children whilst they were in bed. I applied, and honestly didn’t think anymore about it. I’ve not worked since before Lauren was born so I don’t have much…
