………and I have a lovely treat for a lucky winner….read on!!!
The decorations are up, the food preparation is under way, the advent calendar is filled ready to start the countdown and the children’s excitement is growing at a rate of knots!
It’s such a busy time, but I wouldn’t change any of it, every weekend is filled with activities whether it’s practice bakes of Santa’s cookies, festive get togethers, making the annual visit to see Santa and ensuring we’re all on the nice list or simply going out to see christmas lights and warming up with a lovely hot chocolate when we get home again.
It’s important to relax too and we do that with christmas stories by the twinkling lights of the christmas tree and movies, as a family, we all love christmas movies and snacks of course!! I often rustle up some spiced chickpeas, they’re very simple, preheat your oven to 200C, drain and rinse a can of chickpeas, toss in a tablespoon of olive and spices of your choice, tip onto a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes.
The other day, Harry pointed to the tv and requested Dickey, that’s Mickey Mouse to you and me! He was after The Three Musketeers on Netflix, I’ve lost count of the number of times he’s watched it, he loves Mickey Mouse. Anyway, it was a wet, miserable day so I told him he could watch his beloved Dickey. When I turned on the Apple Tv and he saw Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas, he was beside himself with excitement, both himself and Abbie were completely entranced with Daisy & Minnie ice skating, Huey, Duey & Louie trying to get off of Santa’s Naughty List, my favourite, Max trying to impress a girl while his Dad Goofy is just that, goofy; and poor Pluto running away from home only to end up at the North Pole after he made a bit of a mess of the Christmas decorations!
There are lots of lovely christmas movies on Netflix at the moment including:
Abbie particularly enjoyed O Christmas Tree, it’s a lovely little tale for younger viewers.
As it is the season of goodwill, a time to give and all that, Netflix have very kindly given me a wonderful prize for one of you, my lovely followers.
