…decided that dry January is not happening! No alcohol for the most miserable time of the year???
…extremely excited about the prospect of snow next week! E has already decided that we’ll be making our own Olaf – unfortunately I don’t have Elsa’s skills to bring him to life…
…using Pinterest for DIY decorations inspiration! This idea of putting baubles in a wine glass and a candle on top is genius!
…struggling not to open their own presents! I chose a camera and am desperate to have a go with it before the big day!

…find that all the batteries in their child’s toys seem to run out at the same time!
…looking forward to a healthy 2016 after buying a Nutribullet in the sale (reduced to €90 in Debenhams). Only trouble is I got a cake mixer too 😉

…wish their fairy godmother would get them a cordless Dyson.
…have a huge stack of books beside the bed, but always end up looking at their phone instead.

…find themselves calling their sitting room the ‘play room’. I wonder why that could be…

…picked up a pumpkin but rather than choosing it from a photo friendly pumpkin patch – purchased it in Tesco…
…found that while the carving was tricky, the scooping was strangely therapeutic.
…going to make the jelly worms using drinking straws for Halloween. They look so revolting… Who will be brave enough to try one?
…find that every day their child decides that they absolutely have to find a certain toy and demands that you locate it in five minutes flat. The trouble is that when the toy in question is only an inch high; you’re talking needle in a haystack…
