Me and Mine | December 2016

Viki has been loving - All out decorations, it makes our house so cosy - Reading, I am currently reading the Christmasaurus - Anything Harry Potter, since going to the studios back in Noember it's brought back my love for it.

Lilly has been loving - Making Christmas treats with mummy - Cbeebies Nutcracker, she has watched it so many times now I swear she knows all the words - The Advent games on the Cbeebies website, she loves doing this every year.

Liam has been loving - Our homemade mince pies, he has been gobbling them down - Farming simulator still....he is seriously addicted - Hogging the bed haha, I swear we need a bigger bed.
My blog went a little messed up for a while but I believe I have sorted it out and will be posting these on the date they were meant to appear on my blog. Happy New Year.

Mummy + Me | December 2016

Another month over, and another year over. It has been the most crazy and stressful year so far but we have made it though to the end. 
December was lovely, my favourite month, just because of Christmas really. Lilly was so understanding of it all this year and was sure that Santa had forgotten her, bless her heart, but that did mean a very late night on Christmas Eve for us. 
The rest of the month went by in a flash really, we had family to visit, Christmas fayres to go to, presents to wrap, food to buy and it just didn't see like I was very organised at all. And sadly this month, my car decided that it was going to give up all together and blow a head gasket :( so it's sadly off to the scrap yard. 
The picture this month is one of my complete favourite photos of us together, it is taken from during Vlogmas when Daddy got his old Auorora AFX out, this is a kind of scalextric which Lilly found highly amusing and I managed to catch a picture of a purely amazing giggle.
I hope …

My Year in Pictures

I can't believe we are at the end of another year but I certainly am looking towards a fresh new page in 2017. We have not had the best year and we have also lost some amazingly talented celebrities too. But I want to share a few pictures that have made my year the best it could be.


Our little of snow that we had at the beginning of the year....It literally lasted half a day but we enjoyed it while it lasted

I completed my first (and only in the end) of my new years resolutions and passed my driving test. This was my second attempt and only got 5 minors.

March came Easter and Liam's 25th birthday, it was a pretty uneventful time but we did make some amazing nest cakes.

This month was the month that I finally had use of a car and wanted to us it. We took a few drives out and had some lovely days together.
We finally got some lovely weather and we took the chance to have a family BBQ for Lil's great Granddad's, we even got the paddling pool ou…

Lilly's Christmas Eve Basket | 2016

I have just finished sorting out Lilly's Christmas eve basket for this year and I wanted to share what I have included. We are out for some of Christmas eve at my parents so don't have a huge amount this year.
To keep her entertained though the day we have an activity book which I brought from Aldi last year. I believe they have sold some this year too. We also have The Snowman Dvd and The night before Christmas to occupy her before bed but to calm her at the same time.
Food / treat wise I have made a hot chocolate cone like last year an also I will be filling the milk bottle brought from pound stretcher with some dolly mixtures for a sweet treat. We also have a treat for the reindeer, we have some magical reindeer food, this is a mixture of oats, carrots and edible glitter.
Lastly as an extra I have added a Christmas teddy, this year it is a polar bear which she got with some kinder chocolate a while back. I have also included some festive pajama's to wear on Christmas e…

Currently Reading | The Christmasaurus

I finally finished reading Christmas with Billy and Me which means another book to tell you all about, this one written by the Husband of the Billy and Me's author, Tom Fletcher.
I wanted to keep on top with the Christmas books while it's socially acceptable, and just to get me into the festive season. I have started to read The Christmasaurus. I am three chapters in and am loving it already. All I know is that it is about a young boy called William Trundle who is in a wheelchair, he has a magical adventure with a dinosaur on Christmas eve. That's all I can tell you but with Christmas and dinosaurs you can't go wrong.
I know that next year there is going to be a live show for the book in The Hammersmith theatre in London near Christmas and I do believe it is being made into an animated film too. I would love to know if your going to the show at all.

Hogwarts in the Snow Haul | Warner Brothers Studio Tour

On the 30th of November was a dream come true for me thanks to my parents, Liam and my Auntie too. I went to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour, a tour of one of my favourite film series, Harry Potter, and to top it off we went during the Christmas period, known as Hogwarts in the Snow.
I was lucky enough to get some spending money from my Auntie so I was able to treat myself to some goodies and I just wanted to share what I picked up while I was there.
I brought a souvenir Butterbeer in the backlot which is about half way through the tour, the souvenir Butterbeer comes with a tankard or stein which you can take home with you. £6.95
In the gift shop there was so much to me buy but I managed to restrain myself.
The first thing I picked up was the chocolate frog, this is in the authentic film packaging and comes with a famous witch or wizard card, I received Helga Hufflepuff. £8.95
I also picked up a Hufflepuff scarf as on Pottermore I was sorted into the Hufflepuff house and wanted to be…
