What I’d Like For Christmas

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck – Everyone seems to recommend this and it’s a technique I dearly need to learn.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – I still haven’t read this and since many a childhood Christmas was spent reading Harry Potter, I see no reason why that should change.

Olympus PEN E-PL8 – I don’t think it would be a Christmas list for me unless a camera featured in some way. I have lusted after the PEN for so long and the latest model in tan is just pure love. I’d take any shade to be fair though!

Jamie Oliver’s Superfood Family Classics – I love food, I love Jamie, I love cookery books.

Cath Kidston Pyjamas – I have wanted a pair of soft Cath Kidston flannel pyjamas for so long. One day. One day.

Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream – I seem to be a bit of a perfume hoarder, but I’d love to try something of Charlotte’s.

MAC Velvet Teddy – My old one is running low and I love the new packaging for the Shadescents launch.

Lush Christmas Range – Anything from this range, but definitely a bottle of Snow Fairy and a bath bomb or two.

(Not pictured) Some super soft cosy lounge socks – I really want some and need some suggestions (or possibly a family member to surprise me with some!)

The lovely Lucy of Capture by Lucy has launched a Backdrop Store for photography and I would absolutely love one for Christmas. I think the white floorboard backdrop is for me. I am so proud of her – she’s a genius and this would be brilliant for my work.

But yes. This Christmas, I would really just like some quality time with my family, fifty pigs in blankets and some Prosecco. But, failing that, I would quite like these.

I was saying to Mark the other night that, since becoming a mother, I have pretty much always asked for money towards furniture and DIY, or vouchers towards the house. And that has been such a big help. Because we had so much to do and couldn’t have done it without those gifts over the years. Last year I remember asking for IKEA vouchers, and we went in between Christmas and New Year and bought all of Daisy’s furniture for her nursery, and some bits for Bill’s room and elsewhere too – like our kitchen sofa. And I was so excited. I couldn’t wait.

But we are, for the most part, done now. Well – our hallway is diabolical, and our kitchen is half-done even now. But I have just turned a blind eye to it recently, as it doesn’t matter and I’m not a wizard. I have two kids and I work from home and I can’t do everything. And eventually we will get there. We have a roof over our heads and that’s really all that matters. Plus – it gives me a project for next year doesn’t it?

Anyway, I ramble, I would really just like to have a few gifts under the tree for me this year. I have put myself last for a long time and I would like to change that next year. But that’s more for a reflective 2016 post isn’t it?

The collection of things above are very much if every member of my family won the lottery. Really, I’d be made-up with a book, some cosy lounge socks that are super soft (really do need some recommendations there), a candle and a couple of bath bombs.

What about you?

    Woah! What's with the weird comments!! Lovely Christmas list, if you don't get Harry Potter under the tree I'll send you my copy, I've read it (and loved it) so it should be passed on instead of sitting on my book shelf! My little boy is 14 months so I'd like some fitness / pampering gifts to try and get a bit of me back! Hope you and your gorgeous family have the loveliest Christmas, you deserve it x

    I believe what you published was very logical. However, think on this,
    what if you were to create a killer headline? I ain’t saying your information isn’t
    good., however suppose you added something to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean What I'd Like For
    Christmas – Write Like No One's Watching is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create
    article titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or
    two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say. In my
    opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I want to show some appreciation to you just for bailing me out
    of this condition. Just after searching through the world-wide-web and getting basics that were not helpful, I assumed my entire life was over.
    Being alive without the solutions to the issues you have solved through your
    main posting is a critical case, as well as the kind that could have badly damaged my entire career if
    I hadn’t discovered your blog post. Your training
    and kindness in handling every item was priceless. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a subject like this.
    It’s possible to now look forward to my future. Thanks so much
    for your impressive and sensible help. I will not hesitate to recommend the blog
    to anybody who should get tips on this topic.
