A Family Christmas


I love Christmas, seeing all my family, having get togethers and spending lots of time snuggled up at home. We always have a family Christmas, we never go anywhere on Christmas Day, we have family come to visit us, and love opening our presents, having a delicious Christmas Dinner, and watching lots of fab TV.

There are some things that we could do with to help our Christmas go a little smoother this year, don’t get me wrong the most important part of Christmas is being with our family, but we can wish can’t we!?

We love our house, but it is a bit small, with not much room to spare! So when we have family for Christmas Dinner, it is a bit of a squash. Mummy would love a big new dining table, Danetti have some perfect ones. An extending one would be even better.

As we watch a lot of Christmas movies from now to Christmas, a lovely shiny new TV would be great. A lovely shiny 3D TV or Smart TV would keep big bro and sis happy too.

We could always do with more beds – bro and sis love having sleepovers, and MeeMee (and L) will be home at Christmas, so a really good, top quality air bed would be fab. And lots of fun 🙂

Mummy has always wanted a proper special Christmas Dinner Set – she has admired the Portmerion The Holly & The Ivy set for years.

Our Christmas Tree is on its last legs – it has lights built in, and most don’t work now, so a new one would be great. Mummy can’t decide whether to have a real one – the smell is so Christmassy, or buy a new artificial one.

What would help to make a family Christmas perfect for you?



  1. I love christmas too. I am so excited for this year but totally need more time to buy pressies x

  2. We have a very small lounge too, so we cannot fit family round a table, so a perfect christmas for us would be a small extension to our lounge. Otherwise though, just spending time with my family, and seeing my son happy and hopefully his eyes light up, that is really all the magic I need.

    Do you have any christmas traditions? We are still working on ours, so not quite figured them out yet.

  4. My house is too small for a real christmas tree, plus I don’t drive. If you have the room and transport have a real tree! I love Christmas and I do tend to go a little overboard with the decorations inside the house 🙂 x

  9. Up until the point I moved to Ireland we always had real Christmas trees but we only put it up on 23rd December. Here we put it up as early as the beginning of December. It would have died by Christmas.
    Our kitchen is quite spacious but I do like to have a utility room store the washing horse to be honest. It would make the place look a lot tidier.

  10. Christmas is my favourite time of the year – I just love it!
    We are getting a new Christmas tree, as we have had ours for 10 years now, but the one I want is a bit too big. I would love a real one, but my cats would bring it down within seconds haha

  15. I definitely need a bigger room and table, I love to have family over and we all squash in somehow but it would be nice to have more comfort x

  16. Some more room would be great here lol – we seem to be running out (though I’m not sure Santa can bring us that hehe). x

  17. I used to love Christmas when I was younger but now it just seems like any other day. But then my memories of the last few Christmases have been bad, heres hoping this year is better and that you could all the items on your wishlist x

  18. I love Christmas! I prefer a real tree to an artificial one as they don’t need to be stored after the festive period. I collect Spode crockery and it always comes out on 1st December.

  19. I love Christmas and the best part of it (besides presents) is that I get to spend it with my family and friends!

  20. I love, love LOVE Christmas. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! 😀 I’m with you on the staying at home for Christmas Day. MIL comes over for Christmas Day, and on Boxing Day we go to my parents.
    A perfect Christmas day would be great TV, overdosing on good food, and lots of family fun and laughter. 🙂

  22. I would love to have an unlimited budget to spend on decorations, lights and tableware! I love Christmas, it’s magical 🙂

  23. Ask anyone if you have spare tesco rewards and go and get a new tree, they have trees there…I got a great one for just £5 a few years back…although yours still looks like it has loads of time yet.
    Christmas is fun with a family… Hummm and stressful all at the same time lol!
