December has rolled back round again. There is a chill in the air and things are beginning to feel very festive, we've even seen some snow.
I did contemplate taking part in Blogmas this year but in all honesty the commitment right now is all just a little too much. If I had of been more organised then I would definitely be taking part, however trying to wrack my brains for 24 blog posts between now and the 24th December was all just a little too much. Maybe next year, I could start preparing now. Instead this month I intend to:
* Write and send Christmas cards ~
A tradition that is slowly phasing out, but I am determined to keep it going.
* Attend a Christmas themed 'Drive-In Movie' ~
I have already got 2 of these booked up so I am really looking forward to a bit of chill time.
* Get to London to see all the Christmas lights and decorations ~
I've been meaning to do this for a few years now and never quite manage it. I did go ice skating at Somerset House last year but we didn't venture any further round London.
* Attempt a Christmas movie marathon complete with lots of yummy goodies ~
Nothing screams Christmas like a Christmas film and there are some great ones to be seen. I'll be sharing some of my favourites with you soon so watch this space.
* Go for a Christmas light drive ~
Somewhat of a new tradition to go for a drive to see everyone's efforts at stringing up lights across their homes, there are some gorgeous ones out there and some oh so very tacky ones (sometimes they are the best ones though).
I'm trying to keep it simple this year, I don't want to over do it but at the same time I want it to feel Christmassy. Hopefully this should od the trick.
