Things that I only do at Christmas time

Go up into the loft. Twice in fact - first to get the decorations down and then to put them all away!

Buy a paper television guide, leave it open on the coffee table and refer to it daily.

Worry what the Elf on the Shelf is going to get up to each night.

Watch the adverts on television - it's the only time of year that I watch live television!

Put a heap of marshmallows in my morning hot chocolate.

Leave an open box of chocolates on the table in the living room and help myself to it throughout the day.

Wear my Christmas dress.

Eat mince pies, cheese and biscuits, breadsticks, gravy and Brussels sprouts.

Consider cheese and biscuits alongside Pringles and dips to be a balanced meal.

Forget to make sure that the children have a wash because I'm too busy enjoying the post-dinner snacks.

Have the television on in the background rather than just turning it on to watch something.

Use all the trays in the oven for cooking and still run out of room.

Get out my pinking shears (for cutting up the Christmas cards to make gift tags!)

What do you do differently over the Christmas period?

  1. hehehe! This did make me smile. I do a lot of these things too. I have my TV guide and highlighter pen to mark off what I want to watch. I do love that part of Christmas. I spend a lot of time in my pj's and we watch way more films than usual. x
