Magical things to do this December

5th Nov 2015



70%-100% of my time from now until 3pm on the 24th December will be spent planning or partying in the name of Christmas. And I am totally ok with that.

I love Christmas. It does take quite a bit of planning to ensure I have a life outside work and have time to buy presents see friends and enjoy some of my own magic in the festive season. That’s why I’m going to start planning now what I am going to do on my few weekday afternoons off.

I love to have a trip out with Mark, do some crafting for either gifts or home decorations, a Christmas meal with friends and of course time out to put up and decorate both our tree and my parents (it’s a tradition we go over and do there’s as well with snowball in hand).

If you like me have to get ahead of the Christmas madness to ensure you fit in all you want, then I have some fab family days out below for you.
