Twas The Eve of Christmas Eve


I sit here on the eve of Christmas eve and I just wanted to leave you with some final thoughts because I wont be back till the new year (I have only one more post scheduled).

I wanted to firstly say thank you. Thank you so much for reading my blog, for saying ‘hi’ and for joining me here. It really means a lot to me and it is so lovely to have you.

Currently I am as cosy as ever in our front room on our sofa, Mr T is in bed, and my dad has just left to visit my sister after spending the afternoon with us.

We went into town once my dad arrived early afternoon and it was so busy as you can probably imagine, but so lovely to have him with us. I needed some candles and some bits and bobs for christmas that we somehow forgot.

We then came home and had a very easy dinner of a cooked chicken from Sainsbury’s and some mince pies for afterwards. It is not the eve of christmas eve without a mince pie I say!

The children are all tucked up in bed, my lovely cats are as cosy as ever and fast asleep right next to me, and I have just placed the children’s christmas eve box under the tree. Oh, I will say that I am very excited about them opening it tomorrow morning. And I will be taking the advice of Just Saying Mum and letting them eat all the chocolate tomorrow morning before breakfast because life is too short and its christmas eve.

I just wanted to wish you all a very wonderful and blessed christmas, may it be filled with love and happiness. Merry Christmas to you my lovely friends here. I leave you with this lovely quote. I thought it was quite fitting….

“It’s true, Christmas can feel like a lot of work, particularly for mothers. But when you look back on all the Christmases in your life, you’ll find you’ve created family traditions and lasting memories. Those memories, good and bad, are really what help to keep a family together over the long haul.” -Caroline Kennedy-


I am so thankful for these guys. By far the best thing that has ever happened to me. Looking so forward to christmas with them. Remember mummies you make christmas special for your family without you there would be no christmas, you well and truly are the heart of your family. Take your role wholeheartedly and most of all (along with all the work involved) don’t forget to enjoy it. Sending hugs and a virtual Baileys with ice too.
