day 358…

preparing...They say that as you grow older your experience of Christmas changes. When you’re a kid, it’s all about you, about what you’re getting – whether you can find the present stash before the big day or not!

Then you grow up and you meet someone that you want to lavish love on, and it becomes a great trial in buying the right present – not because she’ll judge you badly or anything…but just because you want to get ‘it’ right.

And then you have a child , and it becomes all about them, about creating special memories as a family, about putting together an ikea kids kitchen on Christmas Eve when all you want to do is chill with an ale in hand!

I wouldn’t change it for the world…

Oh, and tonight was the first time we’ve left treats out for Santa and his reindeer…I’ll let you know how it goes down…
