Childcare. It’s something that might not be on the top of your to do list when you find out your expecting. You browse prams, buy a cot and pick a cute coming home outfit for your new bundle of joy, but childcare might be on the back-burner until you think about going back to work or, gasp, have a night out!!

5 Festive Things I Don't Do!!

I love Christmas!! Literally, LOVE IT!!! 

Some might say I'm a bit obsessed!! I starting shopping for Christmas in the Christmas sales, for Christmas the following year!! If a family member or friend mentions something they'd like or maybe a hobby they want to try, I'll make a note of it and keep an eye out for the perfect gift.

As a crafty mum plenty of people say I'm a bit extra and when you combine the crafty mum side of me with the Christmas one, it could easily implode to a tinsel type mess.

But there are some very festive crafty or creative Mum things that I don't do at Christmas. I've seen so many people getting stressed on the run up to the festive period with many of these things, that I thought I'd share the ones that even a crafty, Christmas Mum like me doesn't do and that often cause gasps of horror when I share that I don't do them.

So, here's 5 festive things I don't do!

Sprucing Up Your Home & Redecorating With I Want Wallpaper

[Sponsored Post]

Strange fact about me. I relate the smell of paint and fresh gloss to Christmas!! 

I grew up thinking it was completely normal to see your Mum on her hands and knees glossing skirting board in between wrapping Christmas presents. I thought everyone's Dad's finished off their kitchen extensions on Christmas Eve and it's pretty normal to have an electrician kneeling on your worktop among the Christmas cakes and mince pies your Mum has made and baked for various family and friends, right?
