It’s here – December has arrived now all the scrooges out there can stop whining about everyone being excited already about christmas an join in as well – we know you love it secretly too.December is a mad month for everyone for some reason this year December seems slightly more mental than usual for us starting with:  Visiting Santa; I am very hopeful that this year the children will not break down hysterically and refuse to have their picture taken with the big man.

Novembers Favourites

I can’t believe its December this month has absolutely flown by.

Christmas santa salt dough handprints

I wanted to have a go at some home made christmas decorations. I’m not the most crafty of people so I wanted something pretty simple that looks good and the children could join in. So we went for some santa salt dough handprints with a christmassy feel! First up I made the salt dough using:  1 cup of plain flour  1 cup of salt  half a cup of water  I just threw the ingredients into a bowl and gave them a good stir, once it started to come together I turned the mixture out onto a work surface and kneaded until it was a smooth kind… View Post
