We have already started the build up with the boys. Polar express is being played and made! The Christmas PJ's are in their draws and our jumpers have been worn already.
I like the buzz of Christmas so you will find me filling our time from now until the big day. This week we have decorated gingerbread house - although I want a refund due to the subsidence it's suffered.
Although what I'm really excited about is our trip to the The Victorian Christmas in Portsmouth on Friday. The boy will be at school so it means the young one gets us all to himself and it shouldn't be as busy so we can let him run free and sing along to frozen so if you here a loud almost two year old shouting 'et it goooo' he will be ours.
I've heard really good things about the Victorian Christmas from friends who have been before so I go with high exceptions. I'm expecting to come away feeling very festive with some quirky and unique gifts from the market stalls and maybe a little tipsy. Tickets are still on sale with 20% discount for visiting on Friday so if you pop along and see us say hi.
We also have the local village Christmas Fete on Saturday which is always a good atmosphere and the boys school have submitted a tree into the church's Christmas tree parade. Santa is lead in by a donkey dressed up as a reindeer.
Next week is full of festivities too but I'll save those for another post.
