I know, I know, it is still only November. But we have started the Christmas shopping, actually it is almost finished. Anyone jealous? There will be no Christmas-time trips to the shopping centre for us. Everyone else can keep that stress for themselves.

But we are not shopping today. We just felt like getting in the seasonal mood, we couldn’t help ourselves. It’s a cold, rainy day and we are getting in the Christmas spirit. It’s not difficult when you have a four and a six-year-old.

So we have listened to Christmas songs, read some of the kids Christmas books and now we are sitting down to watch a Christmas classic. Home Alone, one for all the family. I know there may be other movies which are considered more worthy of the term classic. But it’s time for some popcorn and laughs.

Getting in the Christmas mood means smiling more and feeling good. Being grateful for what you have and giving to others. I don’t care if it’s early, Merry Christmas everyone.
