Advent Calendars & Countdown to Christmas | My Weekly Round up

Hello! How are you? I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of November. Yes, I know I say this every time I write a round up post, but the weeks and months are literally flying by.

I haven’t been feeling really well the past few weeks, I’ve had a cold and cough that has dragged on for so long that I’ve had to end up having antibiotics. I’m still not 100% well but I feel much better than I have been for weeks.  I’m also taking supplements and vitamin C, anything to get me feeling back to normal.

This week we have been ….

Watching the Junior Bake Off

I love watching the bake off with my son so we thought we’d give the junior bake off a go. I was quite impressed with how amazing the kids were, they were all so talented, and made amazing creations. This inspired my children to give it a go so we spent all Saturday baking!  I hope they carry on with this new interest, giving baking a go. The downsides of this? Apart from the mountain of washing up, we now have a couple of big cakes at home that need eating!

*Gifted Items 

The lovely people from Adagio Tea got in touch with me a few weeks ago and very kindly sent me their advent calendar.  A tea advent calendar is such a great idea, something different from the traditional chocolate one.  I’m looking forward to December so I can start giving the different tea options a try.

They also sent me one of  their Holiday Cheer boxes containing 6 of their winter  range teas, which are great stocking filler ideas and are perfect to drink at this time of the year and get into the Christmas spirit.

Getting Christmas Ready

I can’t believe it’s exactly a month until Christmas today.  I guess there is no point in delaying it anymore and we will probably put our Christmas tree up in this weekend.  We are always away at Christmas but we still like to decorate the house and put a tree up. We are also planning to make the most of Black Friday, g et a few presents and hopefully not leave things to the last minute as we do every year.
