Lapland Mailroom Personalised Santa Letters

Hey readers,

I know we are fast approaching the end of September so it is safe to say the C word…. Christmas? I mean it is less than 100 days to the big event of the year.

I got given the opportunity to check out the buying process of  Lapland mailroom.   The website offers personal Christmas letters from Father Christmas to your child, making the experience of Christmas extra special for your child/ren.

 When going onto the website it is clear to navigate and know where to begin. At the top is a header with three options (magical offer, order a letter, view letters). To start the order you need to click on the obvious order a letter.

Mail package 1: The letter only £8.95 – basically just the personalised letter and a nice child certificate that will get sent to your child.

Mail package 2: Will include the personalised letter, nice child certificate, and the activity sheets with Christmas based craft such as the bell cute out, the colouring in sheet to get your child feeling all festive.

Mail package 3: is the same as mail package 2 however it is tailed for a newborn as a keepsake for the child’s very first Christmas.

Choose which package you want and at the end of each description, there is a box that says buy now.

Next is a page that shows you 3 different types of personalised letters and the baby’s first Christmas. You then have to decide which type of style writing you want for your letter from Father Christmas. When I did I chose the first one but the choice is yours.

The next step is you can check out what the personalised phases on the letter by clicking personalised or you can head on buying it now to type your child’s details in.

I have been gifted a letter in order of an exchange. However, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. 


Hey readers,

My word of the week is:


because I have finally taken all my Christmas decorations, yes I know what your thinking whatttttt it is like second week in January. But hubby has been poorly and in hospital for a short period meaning I needed him well. There is no way I am sorting out the sodding tree into different groups. I never realised artificial trees were so complicated to do, ugh. Still the tree is down now, so lovely to have clean and an ’empty’ feel to it.

In other news I had a gift voucher for John Lewis and brought the game silly sausage. If you have never come across this, well done and I am envy you. It is a toy sausage that has the most annoying American voice and is super loud. Quite simple for my boys to do with five demands; squeeze, hug, dip, twist, poke. However, with children they do not play it nicely or stop the repetitive button pressing as they think it is bloody hilarious. I am glad to get my ears a rest when they are at nursery and school.

Ftmob – January 2017

Hey readers,

Whilst drawing in a book for pen control with my eldest son, he commented saying that this the bird and (the line) is a wee line as he is a male and has a willy.

Early this week in the car the eldest wanting to discuss, “what is love?” which we had to explain the different types of love and what it felt like when you love something or someone.

My eldest was super tired the other day and really upset. “I want to be a women and have a baby”. He was absolutely gutted that he can’t have a baby. We also explained that you don’t just need a woman to have a baby but also need a man to fertilise the egg.

My youngest over the past month speech/vocabulary has come on leaps and bounds. When it was just me and him shopping he said, “I miss daddy and my older brother”, so cute.

My eldest made me laugh, “I wish Christmas was every day”. Hubby said, “well emm Christmas can’t be every day as it will be very boring and nothing special. Not to mention cost a fortune”. My son responded, “Ok daddy, then let’s just have it two or three days a week”.

January blues

Hey readers,

Can you believe that it is the 6th January already, ugh! Looking out of my window it is wet and miserable and I currently feel a bit pants, I think it is the case of the January blues. I tell you why I frigging hate this month.

  • Firstly, lets start with the fact that  you are now skint after the holidays after you have spend all your money on presents. Not to mention the amount of money you have forked out for them sodding rides, especially in my town they seem to overdosed the area in them. The one’s your little darlings can locate two miles away and because you have to go shopping with sodding the kids you can’t avoid them, ugh!
  • You are fat, because you have over indulged and put on another half a stone, of course it was fun at the time when I was stuffing my face with mince pies without a care in the world. Now I have to work my even bigger fat ass off because I can’t afford to buy bigger clothing because I am skint, init!
  • You have to deal with the mega sugar withdraws when your cold and skint.
  • It is back to normality and routine where lie-ins or lazying around are NOW not acceptable! Let’s not forget the dreaded the school run and silly o’clock, it is an absolute disgrace I tell ya!
  • The comedown from Christmas and the sense of magic has gone.
  • Everything feels bare and all the pretty lights have gone away. So now all I see is unattractive concrete.
  • It is cold, wet and generally boring because all the excitement of December has vanished.
  • Then there is them New Year’s resolutions that evaporate after the first week of  January casing you to go deeper into the blue mood.

You Baby Me Mummy


​Hey readers,
My word of the week is 

Because it has been full of festivity and full of feasts. I have indulgenced in chocolate, cake, sweets and rich food. It has been lovely to let go and just relax the best I can.  
The boys loved having the special treat of having chocolate for breakfast on Christmas day, if you can’t do it at Christmas when can you do it.

The boys have loved playing with their new toys and we have piles of toys nd having them everywhere. I be honest I am not every good at things not in order but trying to let it pass as it is Christmas. 

So basically Christmas is all about disruption and letting the routines go out of the Weekend. But it has been nice to catch something decent on the telly for once. Loving outnumbered. Though, slightly weird seeing the children all grown up.

Happy new year to you all.

Liked and loved December

Hey readers,

This month has been fun with the lead up to Christmas and there has been lots of things to enjoy.

I have enjoyed not doing the school runs and the break from all the information/letters. Trying to remember all these things is hard so it has been lovely to have a step back and have a much needed rest.

I have enjoyed Christmas and self indulging. I have loved eating some lovely food and appreciate the fact I ma in a position where we can afford food and are safe. Especially around Christmas time you forget sometimes that other people may not be so fortunate.

We enjoyed visiting Santa and watching the magic of Father Christmas.


I have enjoyed treating myself to some books in the sales that I have wanted for a while but been blessed with some money to buy them.

I have enjoyed the fog and darker nights getting cosy.

Hey readers,

Obviously my word of the week is:


Image result for happy christmas word art

I can’t believe it is only two more sleeps until the big day. This week we have rang Santa on the old tablet, visited Santa and went on a sleigh ride and decorated some cards to get the boys in the festive mood.

It also is half term and it has been mental, toys everywhere and a lot of, ‘play nicely’ or ‘gently’ or simple, ‘mummmmmmmmy’. But it has been lovely to watch the boys play together most of the time nicely and on their own a large amount of time in their bedroom. I suspect that they are probably planning on taking over the world.

I have finally done all the sodding Christmas wrapping, what a pain in the arse it is. Maybe because I feel like I need to get it or want it all sorted so I can relax because nothing I hate worse is rushing around like a headless chicken.

I just want to wish you a very merry Christmas, whatever happens I hope it is not too manic but enjoyable too.
