Anyone else feel like life is on fast-forward at the moment? I wish I could slow the month down a bit.
This week my eldest has been performing his Christmas play in the evenings and we’ve also managed to squeeze in all sorts of other things like Beavers, haircuts and twinkly light shopping. I’ve also been whizzing round the house trying to get everything tidied and clutter free before we get the decorations out. But I love Christmas, so all the running around is for a good cause!
Here are three things I’ve loved this week…
Frosty mornings… it’s been quite mild here for the last few days, but back at the beginning of the week we were treated to some beautiful winter scenes. I never grow tired of bright, cold mornings – when every hedge, branch and leaf glitters with frost.
History lessons over breakfast… a proper breakfast is so important and the boys have been enjoying Alphabites by BEAR this week. They taste great, but my boys particularly love the cards you get inside the box, which are packed with random historical facts. So far this week we’ve discussed Guy Fawkes, the internet (yes, I’m afraid that is classed as history now) and the bubonic plague. All before 9am!
A little bit of Christmas creeping into the house… We haven’t got a tree yet, but I’m enjoying watching little festive bits creep into the house. Christmas cards, a bright red poinsettia and twinkly fairy lights.
What have you been loving this week?
