Despite the fact that Christmas is my most favourite time of the year, there hasn’t been too much Christmas decorating happening in my house…

We’ve been doing a bit of renovating, so there wasn’t much point in putting up the tree, or making a gingerbread house, just to have it all pushed to one side and covered in dust! But the renovating is finally all finished (For now anyway…) so this weekend there will be a flurry of activity! There is a tree to put up and decorate, a letter to Santa for my little boy to write, a gingerbread house to bake, and Christmas presents to start making, all whilst listening to some kind of tragically bad Christmas CD.

And I can’t wait!
