My Favourite Christmas Films

Standard

My favourite films at Christmas is You’ve go mail with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, I just love the innocence of the movie and how they finally realise that they already know each other.

Then Mary Poppins, the old version, not the new one that has just been released. I am sorry but you can’t beat the classics and it always brings me such excitement every time I see the film.

My son and I are loving Polar Express at the moment, and we’ve watched twice in two days. I just love the magic of it and my son because he loves trains, loves the film.

I can’t forget the old classic, A Christmas Carol, about Scrooge and is visited by the ghost of Christmas passed and present. I love the old black and white version.

Then there are films like The Snowman, it always brings me goosebumps each year and never grow sick of it.

Groundhog day with Bill Murray, absolutely hilarious and never grow sick of it, it still makes me laugh every time I watch it.

I am looking forward seeing some of these films this Christmas again and again.

So what are your favourite Christmas films? I would love to hear from you.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

Chessington Garden Centre Santa’s Grotto

This week we took my son to the Santa’s Grotto, at the Chessington Garden Centre. You do have to book way ahead of time as it tends to sell out rather quickly, but was really lovely to go.

Chessington Garden centre is on the Leatherhead road about two minutes away from Chessington World of Adventures.

We had a bite to eat in the cafe and which came to about £16 but not bad for 3 of us as my son had something to eat aswell, and you can get some lovely Christmas gifts there too.

We did the fantastic Christmas Wonderland experience, which is sold out this year, but worth planning on going to as of next year. You get to meet the creations team and make a gift for father Christmas, and then you follow it around to see the fantastic wonderland and get to see some familiar characters from those famous films and books.

Then at the end you get to meet the man himself, Father Christmas.

Many thanks for reading,

Meal Planning at Christmas

Standard

This year my husband will be cooking dinner, I do cook too, but when it comes to roast dinners my husband is the chef in our house.

We already have our Turkey in the freezer, we have gone for a frozen turkey breast from Iceland’s, the grocery store.

When it comes to planning our meals we buy it ahead of time, to miss the Christmas rush and then it just the case of cooking it all and serving.

I don’t like to rush around and so getting Christmas food already is the key to stop any overwhelming problems.

Check out this post on mumsnet:

Then it is gift wrapping, I like to do it altogether and I am planning on doing my wrapping these next two day’s, it will be fun as I got to look after my son at the same time and he probably want to play catch or some other activity but we see how we go.

I have even found some mini Christmas cakes from Tesco’s yesterday and some mini Christmas puddings aswell. The Christmas cakes were £2 and the little Christmas Puddings were a pound.

I came across this video about meal planning for Christmas. Check it out below:

So I wish you all have fabulous Christmas and don’t panic it is only one day a year.

Many thanks for reading,
