No matter how beautiful and wonderful, Christmas can easily become a very stressful and busy time of year, especially with little ones to think about. The pressure of making sure that your festive gifts reach your loved ones before the big day, especially if they don’t live in the same area as you, is a worry that most of us experience every year. Fear not, there are solutions to these problems.
If you are planning on posting your Christmas presents, it is best to buy them and send them as early as possible, even if the recipient is slightly tempted to take a sneak peek at what you’ve bought them! If, like a lot of us, last minute shopping is inevitable, make sure to check the last delivery dates to avoid disappointment.
It’s that time of year again for Christmas Shopping. You may remember my Christmas guide from last year where I did a selection of items for babies and kids. This year as baby girl is older I have put together a kids gift guide for all ages of children. Some bits will be suitable for younger and some bits for older children.
I do hope you find something suitable for your children.
Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. it also marks the time of year between the end of harvest and the start of Winter.
To help you get organised for this Halloween on the 31st October, I have put together a list of all the things you could possibly need and things to do.
- Trick or Treating
- Dressing up for costume parties
- Carving pumpkins
- Apple bobbing
- Playing pranks
- Visiting haunted attractions/houses
- Telling each other scary stories
- Watching horror films – (here are my top films)
