Day 8 - Blogmas

Boxing Day Plan

BOXING DAY!!!!!!!

When I was a kid I had this silly thought in my head that boxing day is when all the boxing matches where on. Now that I am 29 I understand that the meaning actually comes from the Victorian time when rich families would give any left over food from Christmas to homeless or poorer families who would go door to door with boxes, ready to collect the food.

I think that is such a god thing to do, giving back to the less fortunate but I suppose proper food and not just left overs is better.

The company I work for closes on Boxing day, so I get any extra day off, which I am unbelievably great full for. Sadly the company Paul works for is open 24/7 so ha has to work on Boxing day.

I will there fore be waking up a bit earlier then I want to, trying to go to sleep, but probably have Coco jumping on the bed. I will then probably wake up have a coffee. 

One thing I would love to do this year is go for a little walk with Coco. Normally Paul walks her as I am not good with her off the lead and I get a bit anxious when other dogs are around as I don't know what they will be like or how Coco will react to them. But the thought of rapping up in a nice warm clothes and taking her out sounds perfect to me. 

Then I will probably just come home and veg out on the sofa watching TV, films and eating everything in site. 

The only thing that I am worried about is that I haven't been well recently, I have a bit of a cough and bad throat. I worry that because I am off my body will relax and the germs will take over, so I may end up spending the day in bed getting over a cold. (fingers crossed I wont tho).

What are you all doing boxing day???

Day 2 - Blogmas

Favourite Christmas Songs


So day two of blogmas is here and keeping with all things christmasy lets talk music!


Music at any time is amazing, it has the power to take you back to a memory of a time, place or person. Music at Christmas is even better, it can bring back feelings of every christmas you remember.


For me as soon as I hear christmas music I just get really festive. I want it to be christmas day and be having a jump around waiting to open presents and just being surrounded by the people I love the most. 


I have said this before but for me when I hear Wham "Last Christmas" that is when I no its christmas and I feel like I can be all christmasy. I don't know why that song, I just feel all festive when I hear it. When I put up my christmas tree I MUST have traditional christmas songs on, like Nat King Cole, it really does make me feel all nostalgic. It reminds me of when my mom used to be putting up christmas decorations, she would have old christmas songs on, that would remind her of her dad. So maybe that is why I love it because it is all about family. 


I wanted to share with you a load of my favourite christmas songs, and see what you think. I say get a nice hot chocolate, snuggle up with a mince pie and listen to some of my all time favourite christmas songs!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!



Wham - Last Christmas 




Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song 




Shakin Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone 




Mel and Kim - Rocking Around the Christmas Tree 




Wizzard - I wish it could be Christmas Everyday 




Slade - Merry Christmas Everyone (as a self respecting brummy obviously!!) 




Jona Lewis - Stop the Cavalry 



My collection may seem a little older them my 29 years but to me this is what I grew up with, this to me is proper traditional christmas music. I don't like that you don't have any songs about Christmas over Christmas.

Do you know the last time we had a song with 'Christmas' in the title over christmas??? 2004!!!! that was the new version of Band Aid!!! Lets try and remember some amazing christmas classics this year shall we?? Whats your favourites???

Christmas Tree Reveal

Today is all about my CHRISTMAS TREE!!!!!!!!! I love decorating the christmas tree, ok well to be honest I love watching Paul decorate the christmas tree. I tend to sit there and play with things and then dress up in tinsel and put baubles on my ears and pretend to be Pat Butcher hahaha. Yes I actually sit there with them over my ears. 

I love the smell of tinsel, does that make me weird, possibly, but I love it. I also have my favourite decorations. We were live there is a little stall that pops up every year and they sell tree decorations and then you can get them personalised. The first year Paul and I moved in together and then last year when it was our first christmas with Coco we got a doggy decoration. 

I love them and I cant wait till next year when we can get a decoration of a newly married couple as it will be our first christmas as husband and wife. 

When I was little our tree was every colour of the rainbow and we had ornaments that were years old. For me and Paul we tend to pick colours so I think the majority of ours are gold which I think is a really nice colour for christmas. 

We got our tree the first year we were together at christmas so this will be our 3rd year of having it and we got it from Argos. The baubles are a mixture of from my parents, ones I already had, and my beloved Disney ones. When we put them up I always have my faves that I hand pick and put on the tree. I got them a while ago and they are still in amazing condition. 







What does your tree look like? Do you help or do you ''Help'' to put the tree up haha??
