5 things I learnt this Christmas

5 things I learnt this Christmas


September is a good month to start Christmas Shopping and the Quick! Grabbit it while you can forum on the MoneySavingExpert Website is a God send. 

My dog should never ever be allowed to eat Brussel Sprouts - ever again! EVER!! 

It is perfectly acceptable to hide your son's toy - especially when its chime bells that he's hit you over the head with, caused you to go half deaf from the constant ringing and made the dog howl!

From now on we will take the toys out of the box before wrapping up (or AT LEAST undo the ties) due to a little boy waiting patiently .... for the first 40 seconds anyway whilst mummy or daddy hunt around for a pair of scissors to try and take the sodding cable ties off!!

It is perfectly acceptable (in my world anyway) to use the red bed sheet because you only realise at 6pm on Christmas Eve that the table cloth you bought wont fit the make shift extended table!!

    1. hehehe it was a fitted sheet and you could see the corners so I thought I'd brown tape them up to the underside of the table - yeah that didn't work!

  5. Very funny list, the Brussel sprouts one might just be applicable to humans too, and I always use our business white bed sheets as tablecloths (don't tell our laundry company!)
