Blogmas Day 19

Christmas Film Review

To be honest, this post was purely so I could binge watch Christmas films with the family. Spending a day in pyjamas with the curtains shut is totally fine when you can say ‘it’s for blogmas day 19’.

The Polar Express

5*! What is there not to love about this film? Christmas spirit, belief, and Tom Hanks. The magic of Christmas is captured in this film. It’s a perfect watch if you have children of a certain age asking those dreaded questions about Santa.

The Nativity 1

4*! This is a feel good film for adults and kids alike. Who doesn’t like a light-hearted Martin Freeman film. My daughter loves this film. Mr.Poppy was a huge hit in my house.

Love Actually

5*! I watch this film every year! The highs and lows of Christmas are perfectly captured in the different story arcs. Obviously, this is not one for kids, but a great film to watch with mates or the significant other.

Arthur Christmas

5*! This is feel good and hilarious. One of my absolute favourites. They even bring my home county of Cornwall into it. Perfect! Kids and adults can appreciate this gem.


What are your favourite festive films?

Blogmas Day 17

Santa Fun Run

Blogmas day 17 is a recount of an event we went to yesterday. Helston, Cornwall holds a Santa Fun Run every December, but this year was the first year we managed to get to it.

It wasn’t a massive affair, but it was all in the name of charity. A group of huskies even joined in. See for yourself:


My hubby is planning to join in with our kids next year.

Does your hometown do similar events at Christmastime? Do you participate in something totally wacky for charity?

Blogmas Day 3

Christmas Craft Fayre Weekend

On the 1st and 2nd of December, our local theme park, Flambards, held their annual Christmas craft fayre. It feels like the season has officially started when the Christmas craft fayre comes around.

Local crafters have stalls positioned through the Victorian Villlage Museum and in various locations in the park. It looks so magical. See for yourself…

We tend not to spend a lot of money and simply go for the atmosphere and to see Santa, but my daughter did have her face painted and bought a Hufflepuff coaster for her bedroom. One thing we do always spend money on is the food stalls.

If you want to know the real reason why I go to the craft fayre… its churros. Only joking, well, I’m only half joking. Despite the rain, we made sure we got our hands on some Nutella filled churros. (Photo of me stuffing my face courtesy of my hubby.) Not only that, we also bought handmade cookies that were as big as my head.

What event or tradition kicks off the festive season for you?
