It was my office Christmas Party last night and we had a worst Christmas Jumper Competition. I wore this jumper which I bought in Peacocks. It has a robin skiing and wearing a red woollen hat.
I didn't win but it was great fun and my husband and I really enjoyed the evening. 

I don't have a charity shop find this week as I have been really busy with Christmas preparations and not had too much spare time to tour the shops. Don't worry normal service will be resumed in the new year.

We went as a family to Henry's Nativity Play on Tuesday. Now that Henry is a little older he is not so keen on a major part and was happy to be a shepherd in the background. On Thursday it was Hannah's Carol Service and we joined a packed school hall and sang about 12 traditional carols - it was wonderful!

On Sunday we are going to another Carol Service - this time in our local Church where we will have the Christmas Story told from the Bible with our favourite carols.

I firmly believe that we should celebrate the true meaning of Christmas rather than the commercialism we experience today. We will, of course, exchange presents - but nothing too expensive. We will attend Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and enjoy the Church Bells announcing the coming of our Lord as we walk home.

I would like to wish all my blogger friends a very Blessed and Happy Christmas!


  1. That's actually kind of cute! :)
    I'm glad to hear you are enjoying this Christmas season! It sounds like you have been quite busy.

  2. What a cute jumper! :)

    Hope you have a really happy Christmas - I agree while presents are nice and thoughtful, it's not what Christmas is about. It's lovely to have traditions each year. I'm excited, first Christmas for Baby Boy! :)

    Hope you are having a great week :) Not long until Christmas!
