Festive Bird Feeders

Christmas is upon us. You've wrapped the gifts. Got the turkey out of the freezer. You've visited your family and friends. 

Maybe you want to do something a bit different. You'd like to make something with the kids. Maybe you need them distracted for a little while. Well, this little craft is ideal. Although, please be aware it can get a little messy!

Book of the week

This week's book of the week is another festive one but possibly our last book of the week for the year!

This book is the perfect Christmas book and is a must for Christmas Eve.

This week's book of the week is The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore.

Movie of the week - What is it?

Regular readers will know all about my weekly movie posts where I share our current favourite and most watched movies. 

Some of them are very new movies but they are mostly old and random choices! Because of this I get odd messages on social media asking 'why the random movies?' and 'why are these so out of date?'. 

So, I thought I'd do a little post about what caused the start of movie of the week and why it's so random!

Well, its so random, because lets be honest, children are random!

Bauble Christmas Card

With Christmas just around the corner I thought I'd bring you another Christmas card craft. Just like the Fingerprint Christmas Lights Card it is super easy to do and is quite similar in its style and what you need.

Movie of the week!

This week's movie of the week is another festive one! It features the North Pole and a well known man in red.

I hadn't seen this movie until a couple of years ago when I was pregnant with our now 3 year old. Suffering with nausea, I lay on the sofa feeling very sorry for myself trying to get in the festive mood and I've watched it every Christmas since!

This week's movie of the week is The Santa Clause.

Festive Rocky Road

There's lots of Christmas recipes around at the moment and after the success of my Reindeer Cup Cakes I though I'd do another! 

Now, I've seen all the short clips and links for Festive Rocky Road but nearly every single recipe is American and features ingredients that we simply don't have here! So after a bit of research I've created this original recipe! 

It is very easy to do and if done correctly is something of a showstopper!

Book of the week!

This week's book of the week is one many of you will know. Although prior to having our little boy I hadn't come across it and I certainly didn't know until I read it that it had a festive feel to it!

This week's book of the week is Stick Man.
