This time of year is hectic for everyone, but I didn't make my life easy, my wedding anniversary is the 14th December and my darling Daughter turns 5 on the 23rd December. Of course this means we are having a birthday party, but being me, not just any birthday party!!!
We have invited the whole class to a disco party, so I expect I will be needing a very large glass (or 2 of wine) come 5pm on the 15th December.
As well as all this chaos going off I also have the Rovers birthday parties that are still going on, plus my other clients, and all the work for my other company The Network.
I won't be relaxing Christmas Day either as I have my parents for Christmas Dinner, so will be running around all day.
It will all be worth it in the end!!! (I hope)
A few tips I have picked up from friends and families over the year for celebrations of what ever kind over the festive period.
Christmas Day- Keep one small gift back from the present unwrapping session, and leave it on the chairs around the table, gives that extra unexpected surprise
Christmas Period- Buy the cheapest crackers from the supermarket, usually £1 for 12, take them to pieces and replace the cheap rubbish gift with a personalised present for each guest, adding a gift tag for each person, this then can double up as a place setting
Birthday over the Christmas break- instead of each party guest leaving with a party bag full of bits, have a large sack of small gifts and let them luck dip for a gift as they leave.
Hope these few hints help you get through the festive season
I know its early, but Merry Christmas :)
