December blogging...

Hi everyone,

As promised, I will be blogging throughout December. I love Christmas and ever since I was a little girl I have enjoyed the whole build up from the 1st to the 24th. I hope I can achieve this for Daisy too. We began our advent today with dairy free chocolate, but also with something a little more exciting...


Daisy has 24 envelopes to open. Each one contains a card with at least one Christmas activity for us to enjoy that day.   Today's card was...

Write a letter to Father Christmas and post it. 

We did just that! The Royal Mail do a service where you get a letter back if you send it to a particular address. So now we have to wait and see! This will be a lovely little keepsake.

I will be sharing with you what we are doing each day of our advent. Tomorrow is a baking activity (but Daisy doesn't know that yet!)

I hope you will join me :)

A lot of my posts this month will be child related so out of curiosity, do any of my readers have younger children? A simple comment below would be very useful to me so I make sure I get the balance right. There will be baking and making etc but also children's crafts which may not be relevant to you. I really don't want to lose any followers because of the children's activities. I can throw in some everyday extras if none of you are interested! Let me know what would be useful to your Christmas countdown and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for reading,

Mandy x

    1. Hi Dawn, I will continue and I have no intention of giving sneaky previews! I only said about baking to keep my readers happy because that seems to be most popular thing I write about. X
