#Blogmas 2018 Seeing the kids for Christmas

Archive, blogmas 2018, Family Adventures

I’m lucky that I have grown up daughter’s, each forging their own lives and families. But we still find time to get together over special occasions. But best laid plans always go awry. And sadly one daughter and her son are sick, so unfortunately I can’t see them. I’m sure to catch up with them soon. It’s better for them not to pass it to me as surgery is so soon.

All live miles apart, so it’s no easy feat to get us all in one place.

From my eldest daughter, I got Snowmen Jelly Babies, My own Christmas Cake (as everyone but me hates it) some lovelies for the bath, and an Initial Necklace with all the Girls initials.

Sam my second eldest, she lives the furthest from us all, so it’s a rare treat to see her. From the second eldest I got.


Cute Hedwig lip balm, as I love owls, and Harry Potter.


Then I got some cute Wands, so this witch can do spells with her make up routine too!! Then spoiled by her boyfriend Rhys too, Thank you so much.

These Wetherspoons vouchers will be put to good use. We are often in a spoons!! Her dad and I also got some baileys with orange, tastes like a Terrys chocolate orange! And some prosecco too.

Third daughter is poorly, so I will have a Christmas day once everyone is better. I can’t wait to give our grandson Leonardo his presents.

Then as seen in previous post. My youngest got me Moschino perfume, Flamingo PJ’s for hospital, and Paddington calendar to put all my appointments in one place.

We all ate too much cheese, crackers and bread rolls, but boy oh boy it was tasty. Then off to play games that they had bought.

Cue hilarious fun, blowing kazoos and being pretty stupid at times, and me becoming family quiz champion!!

Twitter Competition using Small Businesses #Blogmas

Archive, Blogger Reviews, Events, Blogmas 2017

Another random #Blogmas I promise I will finish off #London adventures. But I just had to share my amazing prize off Twitter. It was a multitude of Small Businesses and I had to follow each, and retweet. I honestly thought I wouldn’t win, but it didn’t hurt to try.

The first thing to come was PopKakery And omg!! These were delicious, and they didn’t hang around for long. Red velvet was this house’ faces.


Then my guilty pleasure prize came, a beautiful Apple + Cinnamon Candle from Nancy&Nell

This was a beautiful soy candle that burns well, and the scent pay off is really good. Such a simple gift can give so much joy.


Then next up was a Chai  Syrup from Henny&Joes

Its a vegan syrup that can be added to your latte, or tea. Or if a rebel like me a cappuccino, its warming, its spicy, its totally Christmas. Yummy!!


Deadmans Fingers Rum

Came next, and I got 3 little bottles. I’d never tried a spiced rum before, so this is highly anticipated. And perfect timing for #London adventures, nowt better than a warming tipple. Safe to say I LOVED it, and I can see us buying it too.


Mad Hatter Tea

Arrived next, and though I drink coffee, I do enjoy some teas, so these are going to be my teabags for best, ie save them for special occasions, as these are too good to waste.


Beech’s Fine Chocolates

Prosecco truffles no less, and 2 boxes. Well technically 1 now, as we soon polished off one box. Totally delicious. I love chocolate and I really love prosecco, so this was win win!!


Last bit not least, its Iced Rainbow

And this prize is a voucher for £15.00 to spend on their website. Which I haven’t done as of yet, as its so close to Christmas, I know they shut for Christmas too. So I’m saving it for afterwards, besides after Christmas the post is more reliable too. But here’s two things I have my eye on!!

So there you have it, I’ve introduced you to some amazing businesses, who’s products are outstanding, and they will be household favourites. Give independent shops a go, support their dreams, it means the world. I know because I am one too.
