We’re home this year for the first time in ages.

How do you start your day on Christmas Day?

I normally lay awake any time from around 4.30am waiting to hear stirring from the kids rooms. I leave it until about 5.30 when I make my way noisily to the bathroom in the hope that Isabelle hears me in which case the whole house will then be awake.

It works a treat and then I pop down to put the coffee on so that grumpy daddy can be persuaded to get out of bed. Likewise with the teenager (replacing coffee with chocolate).

Present time is amazing fun not least because the dog goes absolutely bonkers for the wrapping paper and has great fun collecting it and taking it to his special corner. Great for us as it’s all in one place to clear away, even if it is a little bit shredded.

Normally we go to family after breakfast so this year will be very different adding cooking into the mix. Daddy is a whiz in the kitchen and my table laying skills are ace so dinner should be nice.

Having a dog now I think we’ll have to have a post Christmas dinner walk and then Isabelle is hoping to watch Stickman.

Whatever you do have a cracking day x

Event – Friends Festive Family Fair

Friends Festive Family Fair, Central Library, Exeter

We had a really good time at the recent Magdalen Street Christmas Market (I should and will post about this soon) and so am looking forward to another event on Monday 14th December from 12pm – 3pm at Exeter Central Library.

This is going to be a fantastic event for Mums and Dads with their pre-school children. I’ve kept this event pretty quiet at home as my little girl would love to come and join in, and see  Poco Drom.
