On the first day of December...

Okay, I admit it, I'm a total Christmas freak. The minute December arrives I am officially allowed to be excited and start listening to Xmas music (I will keep quiet about the fact that I have been secretly being Christmassy since October and have not only done all my Xmas shopping, but also have it all wrapped and my cards all written, addressed, stamped and ready to go!)
So what have we in store to make the season jolly? This year my mum treated my daughter (and hubby) to a Lego advent calendar, which she's really looking forward to opening tonight, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the two of them have fun being creative together. There's also a theatre production being put on at my little girl's school tonight called "The Snow Dragon", which I'm hoping will get us feeling festive. If that fails, listening to my daughter play Christmas carols on her violin makes my heart just sing.
But before I can get really geared up to Xmas, something special is happening. My mum is turning 60 and we're having a family get-together to celebrate. I can't say anything about it cos it's all secret and she reads this blog, but it will be epic!
So I'm looking forward to the next month. A party and Christmas, whoop whoop. Makes me feel very lucky that I have so much love in my life, so many people I want to share special occasions with, all of whom accept the fact that I'm a little bit mad and love the festive season just a little bit toooo much!
