Yippee! Only 16 weeks to go until it’s Christmas

Have your say

I’m all about the sun – a massive sun worshipper who loves nothing more than waking up to a blue sky and the sun on her face.

But I have to admit there is something about the turn of a season that I also love.

It just proves my theory that life is not about what you’ve got or how much you earn

It feels so autumnal at the moment and for the first time this week I woke up and it felt like the start of…Christmas!

I’m sorry guys. I know I do this every year.

But I do love the festive season that is fast approaching and I don’t know whether it’s because it’s now September so we’re officially out of summer, or the fact that we have 16 weeks until the big day, December 25! Yep, 16 weeks baby.

But I don’t think I can wait that long. I absolutely love Christmas and now there are more children in our extended family, I think it feels that little bit more special to me.

Let’s be honest, Christmas is really for kids – and me of course!

Plus it’s our first Christmas as a married couple so, although we don’t feel any different than we did before we got married, it will be nice to buy a husband card instead of one for a fiancé or boyfriend.

Check me out – I think I must be growing up.

Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?

The reason I love Christmas so much has absolutely zero to do with the presents I might receive.

No, for me it’s all about family and friends.

As you know if you’re a regular reader, my family and friends get together all the time – just last week our best friends Denise and Del held a ‘Gibbs BBQ’ at their home.

It was the first of the season (even though it’s practically finished) and when I asked if their family were coming, they said ‘Oh no, we’ll do theirs after, we had to get the Gibbs lot in first’.

I love that!

Anyway, we had a blast and yet again it just proves my theory that life is not about what you’ve got or how much you earn.

All you need to be happy is good friends and family and you’re all set.
