Beating winter time bugs …

I love Christmas, but Winter and I have a love/hate relationship. Having had the flu several years in a row I am all about beating winter time bugs, especially in the kiddos. Snotty noses are part and parcel of winter, mainly unavoidable as little noses flit from central heating to the colder fresh air of the outdoors.

However we can do some little things to help give our smalls a healthy boost and hopefully keep them relatively healthy this season.

The scent of Christmas …

The scent of Christmas …

The scent of Christmas to me is cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and a spritz of citrus. Throw in some sweet cranberries and it’s sheer perfection to the senses.

I’m itching to get the Christmas decorations out already this year. I want to snuggle under a blanket with a hot chocolate and beam with glee as all the shimmering sparkles and sweet fragrances fill our home for the whole of the winter season.

Getting Christmas all wrapped up with the #sdfiverchallenge …

Let me begin by saying that getting Christmas all wrapped up before the end of November is absolutely my primary focus as soon as the start of school has been taken care of! I do not enjoy traipsing all around town, in the hustle and bustle trying to avoid bags and elbows, all whilst attempting to hunt down the elusive gift for someone awkward to buy for. So to be clear, I am usually sat in my jammies with a glass of fizz come the 1st of December come tooth or nail!
