Looking forward to Christmas! - Express Yourself

The Express Yourself meme is a weekly jaunt brought to you by Dani at Entertaining Interests and Jackie at Bouquet of Books. At the beginning of the month the girls will post a gadget with a list of topics, something different for each week. Make sure to head on over to either of these blogs to check out the details more fully and see who else is taking part.      

This weeks topic of conversation: List something(s) you always look forward to this time of year.

I love the build up to Christmas, much more than the event itself I think. The children are all so excited and it's infectious, you can't help but join in.

Although trying to think of presents for everyone can be stressful, I do love wandering round all the shops with their decorations and festive music playing. I especially like the Salvation Army band that plays as you walk through the city, it never fails to bring forth a bit of emotion.

And of course the best thing to look forward to at this time of year ... two weeks off work!!! 


  1. Woo-hoo! Time off work and holiday cheer. :) Hope you enjoy your week.

  2. Though my kids are all grown up, 16 and 22, I still get a thrill when they open their presents. Though I never make it easy. I leave a note from Santa's'elves' stating that they have hidden all the presents within the house. They get a clue to the first present's whereabouts and when they find that it gives them a clue to the next present and so on.
