Christmas is coming!

Well, it's the first of the month and Christmas is just around the corner. Before I had kids, I just used to look at Christmas as a good opportunity to make a bit extra money - working through Christmas and New Years, however now, I'm actually quite excited at the thought of getting things all kitted up for Christmas. I bought some new decorations today - nothing glam...my older daughter - all of 22 months, decided the gold tinsel with the gold circles on it was the best. She held it the whole time we were in the supermarket, stroking the circles and saying "moon" :-) So we've gone for a gold and red theme this year as a result.

We put some flashing lights up outside on our balcony which is fairly large and has a huge tree on it which reaches up to the second floor! The lights look great - my daughter thought so too. She spent ages at the glass door to the balcony going "oooh". It was very cute.

I can't wait to play Santa. It will be the first time she realises what's going on. My younger one, nearly 7 months now, won't be clued in yet, but the older one will be so excited. I'm looking forward to seeing the look on her face.

I think wherever you are, whether it's Benalmadena Costa, somewhere else in Spain, or somewhere else in the world, Christmas is always so much more special when there are kids involved.

If I think back to when I was little, it was the highpoint of the year, even rivalling birthdays. Now, 35 (yes!) years on, it's going to be just as exciting all over again...nice that the spirit of Christmas lives on, isn't it?
