Last year was the first year Christmas really began to matter for Big D, she was so excited at the prospect of Father Christmas coming down the chimney to deliver her lovely gifts. This year she’s already buzzing, (she practically started to hyperventilate when she saw a Christmas tree in M&S), not just because of gifts, but for the whole celebration.
We’ve made the brave decision to take her to her first carol service in the evening at St Pauls, Knightsbridge as a friend is organising this charitable event, we’re going to the Theater to see The Snowman and we’re off to see the Panto in Jersey, where her amazing uncle Matthew will be on stage giving it his all in Dick Whittington.
It’s the first year since having children that we’ve actually got ourselves a little bit organised and booked up some festive fun for the family. Little D is still a touch young to get in on the action, but I’m sure she will feed off the excitement of her big sister.
My diary used to be full this time of year with drinks parties a-plenty, but these days as social secretary to the girls I’m chaperoning them around their various dos, so I’ve been sharpening my stylist skills to make sure they get their sparkle on. I’ve also looked into a few festive looks for Cousin O, so all bases are covered.
Below are Mummy B’s top picks.
