It’s that time of year when the older children are so excited by Christmas they can barely contain themselves and as for the youngers…. Well, routines tend to go out of the window for a start, as you’re busy preparing for the big day and they start picking up on the excitement and refusing to sleep (oh joy). But…

It’s also a time to spend with our families and enjoy the look on their faces on Christmas day as they open their presents, and even before as even mundane tasks take on new meaning as we start to see them through their eyes.

If you still have Christmas shopping left to do, I hope it’s not too taxing this weekend (morals aside, Amazon, and other online retailers, are a Godsend at this time of year!) and you might want to check out my shopping tips in preparation for next year (assuming the world doesn’t end tonight)!

As I expect you will all be busy over the coming week, and spending more time offline than on, Mushroom and I have made a special card, just for you:

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you all find time to put your feet up and enjoy the season.

See you next year (I hope)!
