Blogvent Calendar - Day 20 - Roundup!

You might be thinking it is a little early to be doing a roundup post but I have decided to end the Blogvent Calendar here so that I have a few days off from the blog to chill and relax for Christmas! I hope y'all enjoyed it and if you missed any, be sure to check them out. I have linked all the picture below, in no particular order (mainly because the uploader messed them up and I'm too lazy to change them around).

SO, have a great Christmas everyone and I will see you in 2013 with my next post! (^̮^)

Blogvent Calendar - Day 18 - Who ate all the pies?

That moment when you get undeniable proof of Santa Claus' existence is just so pure and innocent. Just like the moment you realise you can make money from your teeth!

Blogvent Calendar - Day 17 - The Gamble

We all face it every year. Turning around to see an eager-faced family member poke the other end of a cracker in your direction. You look at them as if to say no, never, go away and yet your hand extends to receive the gesture. This is the gamble. You either face major disappointment in the fact that you are a loser or you win with short term happiness, a joke you've heard a hundred times before, a paper hat that doesn't fit and rips within seconds and a useless gadget you have no time or place for (i.e. the tiniest playing cards in the land or that little plastic red fish that bends in your hand).

Blogvent Calendar - Day 15 - Happy Catmas!

Admit it, cats do seem to enjoy Christmas more than we do! As soon as all the presents are revealed and the wrapping paper jungle is formed on the floor, just watch them pounce with delight.

Blogvent Calendar - Day 14 - That awful childhood moment

We've all been there. Spending all day freezing your pinkies off to create that wonderful snowy friend. Actually even building a snowman is quite a skill. I couldn't for the life of me work out how to roll a ball to make the body and head. The only time I ever did it, I saved it to throw at my brother during a snowball fight. Well, you totally would, right? As far as I remember, it broke mid air though and went nowhere near him. So, that didn't go to plan.

Anyway, because I love to post happy, cheerful pictures that fill you with glee, here is that awful childhood moment when your snowy friends dies.

Oh and because it's Christmas Jumper Day, my little guy is sporting spiffing knitwear.

Blogvent Calendar - Day 11 - In an alternative universe...

... I still think the bickering over how the decorations should look would remain but with a slight difference...

Blogvent Calendar - Day 10 - Guess the Christmas song..

Ok, so it is obvious (I hope) , as to what this song is but I thought it would make a cute little picture. This song is definitely one of those that when I hear in the store it makes me all Christmassy and tingly and happy and giddy.

Blogvent Calendar - Day 9 - My favourite Christmas movie

Ok, so there are some majorly depressing/violent moments as oppose to everything being merry and joyful but I love the story of Edward Scissorhands and it is definitely the Christmas movie I most look forward to!

Blogvent Calendar - Day 8 - Raining candy canes

So it is nothing magical or over the top but I have decided to give my blog a bit of a Christmas makeover. Ok, well just the background to the header because it's a headache messing around with everything else. Besides, who doesn't want it to rain candy canes?

You can give me a day off with this less-than-exciting blog post. Can't you? Well, you'll have to. Nur.

Blogvent Calendar - Day 6 - UK snow logic

We're a funny bunch. We complain when we don't get snow and then when we get two inches, we go into a panic and hate campaign. I say we, but I personally love it.

Blogvent Calendar- Day 4 - Don't play with matches!

The remind me of the old television advertisements featuring "Frances the Firefly" that taught us kids to not play with matches!

Blogvent Calendar - Day 1 - How early is too early?

Whatever time you begin preparing for Christmas, it always seems that people are irritated by what others do. If you leave things until last minute, you get frowned upon and lectured on how you should have things sorted by now and if you begin in the middle of the year, you get told, "it's too early", "it's not Christmas time yet".

So bloody what?

If I want to eat candy canes in the middle of June and play Christmas songs in November, it's my choice. Generally, people seem to wait until December but I'm way too impatient for that! Christmas is exciting and I think that if you want to start celebrating early, go for it! At least you're not the miserable one condemning others for having fun!
