Although I’m a ‘keep Christmas in December’ kinda gal, I do enjoy seeing all the pretty seasonal stuff in the stores despite it all being largely premature in October! The pj’s that look so cosy and comfy, slippers too, scarves that help keep the cold from our necks, the glitzy and glam party wear, pretty jewellery and watches… and for those who have everything, there’s always the Christmas gift cards.

As a family, we’ve long ditched the giving of gifts. And this works for all of us. There’s something so liberating about not having to wrack your brains about what on earth you’re going to buy for so-and-so. About not having to lament that there’s still so much to wrap. And trying to remember what you bought so-and-so last year so as not to repeat. For me now, it’s all about spending time and celebrating Christmas with loved ones, not only on Christmas Day but throughout December.

It may well be that as a family we’ve come to ‘buy what we want or need’ as and when we want or need it. I don’t know, but it works for us.

I do, however, pick up a little perfume spray for myself as the festive season approaches each year.

It’s definitely the little things…

Much love,
