Regardless how organised I am, every year it never ceases to amaze me how I always tend to find myself composing an exhaustive list a few weeks before the big day – even when I have myself CONVINCED beyond reason that everything is sorted. Have we a hidden stash of various batteries for Emma’s toys? What about crackers for the table? Oh and don’t forget a table cloth – has to be gold, gold’s the theme this year!! *chews on lip for fear of missing something else* Ahhhh, that’s it… DISPOSABLE NIBBLE TRAYS!!!
Yesterday I closed the laptop spent the entire day avoiding all thoughts of what’s on my to do list but instead made pizzas & watched Jurassic World with Ems & Steve. It was glorious. Not a string of tinsel or toy advert in sight. I can’t help thinking that at times the pressure we place on ourselves at Christmas is so overbearing it can zap the fun straight out of it. Forget the endless TV ad’s highlighting the latest 48″ Star Wars action figure or Beach House Barbie… just sitting around watching a whole load of dinosaurs causing carnage whilst nibbling on a Hawaiian thin crust with the family is a nice break from the constant reminders of an endless to do list. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for celebrating the festivities, but occasionally it can be a little too easy to forget the reason for the season. Stress less, enjoy more & be grateful for what we’ve already got, right? ❤
So for those of you who aren’t rushing around a shopping mall today but deciding to take a weekend off from the mayhem of planning etc. Here’s a quick recap of what fun shenanigans have been featuring on Confetti & Curves this past week.
Disclaimer: lots of sparkle & cheesy seasonal references ahead, you have been warned!!!
