Christmas Magic

We sat and watched ‘Elf’ yesterday whilst making our paperchains. We put together around 300 strips of paper and made one giant chain that goes right around the living room. Hot chocolate with squirty cream and marshmallows kept us going while we made it!!  Today we walked up to a local Christmas Market to have a look around and for the girls to visit Father Christmas. It was a beautiful walk up in the snow – even if it was drizzling with rain a little. We had a look around all the stalls, had a picnic of warm homemade tomato soup, fed some ducks, drank some mulled cider and visited Santa’s Grotto. Kiki was a bit shy and wouldn’t have her picture taken with him, and Baya didn’t know what to think – but was happy enough to take a present off him!  Now we’re back home in the warm, this evening we’re going to watch Fred Claus. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Polly

Saturday Link ♥ Love

Saturday again! We were supposed to be having family come visit for the weekend, but because of all the snow they can’t make it :( We’re off to a Christmas market today, girls are going to pay Santa a visit in his Grotto and I’m sure they’ll be mulled wine and roast chestnuts consumed! We put our decorations up on Thursday and have been busy making paper chains to put up as well. I’d love to see pictures of your decorations too. I’ve been filling in the ‘100 things to do in 2011’ in my Goddess Workbook – but so far I’ve only got about 25!!! Am in need of some ideas? HELP! Here’s some of what I’ve been loving this week: The beautiful Elsiecake has written new e-course – ‘Blog Love‘ It looks fantastic for new bloggers (and already established ones!) in need of some pointers. I discovered a new blog this week –  Milk No Sugar – I’m loving this blog (plus the fact that she lives in the UK!) I’m re-discovering my love for dressing up and vintage clothes, something I’ve kinda lost somewhere in the last year or two. I got it into my head that…

the decorating has begun….

Yesterday we began to decorate the house! So exciting. Baya seemed confused as to why we’d have a tree in the house! And she was more interested in taking stuff off the tree than putting it back on! The house is looking festive and cosy. Today we’re making paper chains! There are more pictures on my Flickr – and I’ll be posting more as we go along!

List 20: Things to do when you’re sad

When I’m in a melancholy mood, rather than feel bad for feeling bad (!!) I try and do something to distract myself from my mood. Here’s a few of the things I do:   Put some happy music on LOUD and dance dance dance Eat chocolate! Write a list of things to be grateful for Do something creative.
