So I was told by my four year old very early this morning. Looking around I would have to agree, the tree is up (and rapidly being dismantled by the littlest child), there are cards strung around the walls, a variety of decorations hung and the television guide is being read and favourite films circled.
I really love the cover of the Christmas Radio Times this year: the festive colours and simple design work so well together, I am hoping it will not get too destroyed as I plan to save it. We only buy a television guide at Christmas and usually a much more frugal version but I was totally swayed by the fantastic design this year. The free Gruffalo book will be a favourite with little man too.
The middle children have been busy writing special letters, using the most lovely of Christmas packs bought from Primark. They were only a pound and kept them quiet for ages as they included a great Christmas activity book, colouring pencils, a door hanger to make and a special pencil with a festive rubber, excellent value for money!
These then had to be put in the special envelope and sent to the busy man himself.
Let's hope Chimney post is more efficient than the Royal Mail!
