My Top Ten Picks of the Best Christmas TV

OK, I'm exhausted.  The build up to Christmas is a busy time.  I'm starting to look forward to vegging out on the sofa with my family watching the best kind of television of the year- Christmas TV (maybe Santa will deliver me a box from the Panasonic 4K TV Range to watch it on if I'm very good?*).

Let there Be Light- The Lantern Parade

On Saturday, we headed into town for the Lantern Parade that precedes the "turning on of the town Christmas lights" ceremony.  Some years, the kids make their lanterns in school, this year the kids all came home with the blank lanterns to decorate.  The girls quickly painted them Friday night so they'd be ready to parade the following day but we have some left in our craft box that they can take more time on during home craft time and hang up as decorations.

Style: 7 Ways to Wear One Winter Coat and Pair of Boots

While I love my colourful winter coats (teal is my current favourite) I always want a black wool look coat in my wardrobe as a staple for the autumn and winter months.  It's a handy uniform for the early morning school run as you can grab it off the hook and put it on each day and it will, without fail, match every single outfit (so handy if you're like me and don't have time to colour coordinate at that time of day).

Advent: The Countdown to Christmas Begins: 7 Ideas for Week 1 of the Advent Activity Calendar

kids meeting Santa, magic, Christmas, Santa,

Today was the 1st of December and I know that you know what I'm going to say but please indulge me - I can't believe it's already the beginning of Advent.  I'm nowhere near ready for Christmas which is completely normal  but I'm also not ready for Advent.
