Sorry if you don’t like Christmas, but I do! It’s my absolute favourite time of year. I adore the build up so much. Now my favourite local Garden Centre Bents has opened their Christmas displays I couldn’t help but go and take a look. To me it signals the start of the countdown to Christmas.

So the picture to me signals the stat of the countdown!

Except this years countdown for us includes a major happening, the arrival of our third baby due in November. This year I’m trying to be super organised so that once the baby arrives I will have nothing else to do except sit back and enjoy the time. I don’t really want to have presents to buy (although the internet has revolutionised that!). I don’t want to have to do any wrapping. I just want to enjoy the first few precious weeks with the new baby and watching the boys get excited about this special time of year.

  1. I love it as soon as the garden centres get their decorations up – we’ve been to two already! #MySundayPhoto

  2. The build up is the best bit! Loving the display, so festive and fun.

  3. Oh boy, beautiful display. Still too early for me to be thinking of Christmas

    Thank you for linking up

  4. I’m the opposite to you – it’s not that I dislike Christmas (I don’t!), but I hate it starting too early. But if I had a baby due in November, I would totally be getting organised now too! Good luck with it all.

  5. Garden centre’s have the prettiest displays, lovely to get you in the mood X #mysundayphoto

  6. I can’t wait for Christmas, I love seeing it all in the shops as soon as Halloween is over. November is a fab time for a new baby (my twins were born in November!) although it does make the Halloween/Christmas run up super busy with party prep added in too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I hadnโ€™t really though about it but hopefully the baby will arrive slap bang between Halloween/Bonfire and Christmas! That would be nice. Iโ€™m a November baby too so maybe not on my birthday either!

  7. Love seeing Christmas displays. Good luck with getting organised so you can relax and enjoy time with your new baby in the run-up to the festive season ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Hi Jane, Christmas is my favourite time of year too, but I’m not a fan of Christmas madness before December. You have the best present of all arriving! I hope that all goes well and you manage to get ready for Christmas before little one’s arrival!


    • Thank you, Iโ€™m not far off done present wise and any last minute gifts can always arrive from the internet quickly. I hope this little one is on time roughly so I can enjoy the December build up with him and the boys and donโ€™t miss out on nativities etc! Thanks for commenting x

  9. So exciting! I can understand you getting ready early with your own little present on the way. Sending best wishes ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. time flies – we now have 3 santa letters written, and posted. Once they’re posted, they’re posted ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • We’ve not done ours yet, need to get organised and get them written! Although I think Santa is mostly sorted now anyway and has already decided what he’s getting the boys ๐Ÿ˜‰
