How to make it

1) Glue the ends of the popsicles together then stick them together in the shape of a tree.

2) Then add your glitter and sequins. At this point I found some stick on stars to put on top of the trees.

3) I then put the trees in the oven for the afternoon set at 45c, that allowed plenty of time to dry.

4) Next I put punch hole on the top and then threaded some string through, tied it into a not.

5) Voila there you have a tree decoration to hang on the tree.

Christmas decoration wishlist 2017

 Hey readers,

As we are in the festive period, you can not miss Christmas decor everywhere at the moment, I thought I would comply a wishlist of some of the beautiful products on and offline at the moment, that tickle my fancy, enjoy!

chrsitmas decorations

1. Tesco Р£9.99

This is a Christmas water filled LED snowman lantern. What I like about it is a bit different and something the boys would enjoy.

2. Wilko Р£25.00

This item is a six foot indoor colour changing twig Christmas tree. I have a soft spot for low lighting sensory items due to my autism. I have seen this set up and it is really beautiful and subtle the pastel colours.

3. Debenhams (Sass & Belle) Р£17.00

I love the quirkiness and something a bit unusual, so feast your eyes on this beauty, a white polar bear head. To be fair mind it is not massive so won’t be too overpowering in a room but still out some character.

4. H & M Р£6.99

Bring some festive cheer to your sofa or bed with this lovely stag cushion. I like it because it is not too daring and think the design is really beautiful.

5. Matalan Р£12.00

I love Christmas Nutcrackers, I just think a bit traditional and cute.

What I like about Christmas

Hey readers,

Can you actually believe that we are in DECEMBER, its true! Let’s get in the festive spirit and things Christmas related.

On the big day you can eat your body weight in calories and drink the booze until your sozzled on the sofa.

Kids are not allowed to stay they are bored. because how can they be bored with that amount of new s**t!

 Normally tat is frowned upon, but the brighter and more daring the decoration the better Christmas vibe it brings!

Xmas, Christmas, New Year, Holiday

Finally something half decent is on TV and I am not even talking about Netflix, I am just talking about the ‘normal’ channels.

All the stand up DVD’S come out!

There is nothing more beautiful than having candles on and watching the twinkly lights in the evening.

Now I have children I have an excuse to read the Beano and feel the love once more.

Background, Christmas

Roast potatoes lavished with goose fat, why?… ermmm because it is christmas and I can do what I like and no one will bat an eyelid!

Christmas toilet roll, can you get anymore festive.

I find it really therapeutic wrapping presents, especially when I have the radio on in the background and a good old alcoholic drink in my hand, really helps me get in the mood for Christmas.

Having family of my own to share it with, at one point in my life I had no one. So, I feel truly blessed to be able people that I can call my own and celebrate with.

Using Father Christmas as a threat to keep your little ones in order I am going miss when it is over.

Santa, Polar Bear, Christmas, Snow

Seeing the magic in your kids eyes and that lovely innocent excitement on Christmas Eve.

Having snuggles with the boys on the sofa Christmas eve and watching Channel four special film they do every year (seems to be a tradition in our household).
