A new chapter!

Hello everyone!
 its nice to be back again. its just one week till Christmas! Golly thats come around quickly. It seems like last week we were putting last yard decorations away! As part of my blog i have decided to start video blogging (or vloging) It will mostly be reviews of different items I've purchased or places we have visited. Its all in a bid to docent my life and get to know you all better. My first review is below and i hope you enjoy watching it.

 Have a wonderful christmas whatever you are doing and I'm sending peace and love to you all! Bye for now!

Christmas is coming!

So Christmas is nearly soon us. As I look around the shops I see pretty lights, tinsel, adverts and prompts urging us to buy buy buy!  But what happens when you can't?  What happens when you have to choose between heating your home or buying you child a Christmas present?  What happens when Christmas dinner is beans on toast?  There are people in this country facing Christmas like that. People who will be relying on a food bank to get them through the festive period. Spare a thought for them. When uploading the photos of your tree bulging with presents, think about how it feels to be a parent who just hasn't got the money to buy any presents at all. In your prayers remember those who may be spending Christmas alone. Either for the first time or as a regular occurance. Most of all remember Christmas is about love. Spending time with those you love, enjoying being with friends. Even just enjoying the Christmas telly repeats!  I hope whatever you are doing over the Christmas period you will be happy and blessed. 
Bye for now.

Nearly Christmas

Well it's been months since my last post. I've been without a laptop for all that time and have only just realised I can get blogger on my phone!  Doh moment!  

So are you all ready for Christmas?  Here at CM towers we are nearly ready. With the exception of my sister in law, all the presents are bought and wrapped. The meat has been ordered and grocery list written. 

I'm feeling very Christmassy. Yesterday we had a signing choir join us in church. They were amazing and I was pretty much mesmerised by them. They signed a mixture of hymns and Christmas carols. After church we put on the Sunday lunch, pressed play on the cheesy Christmas cd and put up the Christmas tree.  Princess really enjoyed choosing what decoration went where. We have a pretty mismatched tree with decorations from when the boys were small as well as much recent buys. We try to limit ourselves to buying one new decoration a year. (Although I've bought two of the little crocheted Angels from tesco today) Mr CM likes to decorate the windows with lights etc but I'm not so keen. The boys laugh and call me a bah humbug but I don't care!  So our house can now be seen from space with the lights Mr CM has arranged on the Windows. 

Tomorrow we are having a new bed delivered. I'm so pleased we have been waiting for weeks. The bedroom carpet has been shampooed in readiness and the decorating was finished weeks ago so we all we need to do now is wait for the bed. I shall do a review on it when it comes. 

Well I guess that's all for now. I hope you are keeping warm in this dismal weather and look forward to your comments. 
Bye for now X
