It is bitterly cold today. I have spent the last few hours curled up underneath a blanket trying to get warm. Brrrrr!
I have been getting SOOOOOOO excited for Christmas! And, because I'm feeling particularly festive today, I thought I'd share some of my recent Christmas/Winter inspired Instagram pictures!
I couldn't believe it when The Muppets' Christmas Carol came on at the weekend. It is my all time favourite Christmas film, and really got me in the Christmas mood! I've also been chow-ing down on home cooked comfort food lately, and made myself a massive batch of chilli with nachos and sour cream!
This hot chocolate was HUGE! The mug had two handles, and the barrista serving me had to check with me TWICE that I wanted the large! ....Of course I did!
Mama Ginger came up this weekend just gone, and together, we blitzed all my Christmas shopping! I got some really cute wrapping paper from Marks and Spencer with matching gift tags. It looks so lovely. All the gifts for my friends and family are now under my tree.
I put the tree up so early this year that I was the first out of everybody I asked to have it all ready. I held off decorating it until 30th November though. I have the lights on every evening. and it makes my whole house seem so magical.
And you are NEVER too old for an advent calendar!! The nostalgia having one brings to Christmas is amazing!! And the chocolate inside always tastes that extra bit yummier!
Has anybody else decorated for Christmas yet? What are your festive rituals?!
