Christmas Gifts 2015

Having enjoyed reading other bloggers 'What I Got For Christmas', it's a post I definitely wanted to follow on into an AmBlog tradition. Today, 2015 edition.
For the curious of you out there, and to say a HUGE internet, heartfelt thankyou to my family and friends, for such generous and thoughtful gifts. Oh and to Santa(s) for the stocking, if he's/they're out there listening.

Drop Price Decs

Another sign of of my old elf age, is taking pride in the house, and that adorning it with christmas chic and sh*t, gets me excited. Too frugle for new displays every year (who do??), but it's nice to add in a few bits here and there.
Be you begginer, or adder-in-er, decorating doesn't have to cost am arm and a turkey leg.

Thrifty Little Gifts

You'd think that getting older would mean 'little helper' duties were past tense - turns out in the Smith Family household, that it's when you come of age, that you contribute to Santa's stockings - & it excites me more than Will Ferrell him-s-elf.

Not extravagance, expense, or extence - all about opening the day with small things, that make you smile. Everyone gets one; I question those who say it's just for kids, and I almost want to make some up for those who've never had them atall. We delegate 5 per person (ish), from every adult, so my younger brother often ends up with a whopping 25 gifts! No longer just tat, it's a real treat, but it is a feat.
Who what where when, now - Family members face away - as suggestions for those pre prepared, and unprepared. My sample selection of not just silly ideas, that I'll wrap and put in a stocking - or send as a token gift.






This is one of my main contributions to the day, so I've spent about £10 on each person. I usj stock pile for a stocking - I understand this late in the game, could be mayhem - but here's how to fill, the thrifty way.

Life | Christmas Market 2015

Saturday 21st November 2015

Our local church St. Marys, got in early, and had a Christmas market before December had even begun. This was the start of the festive season for me - Christmas was close enough to surround yourself with tinsel and topical musical, but far enough away that I wouldn't worry about how few christmas presents I had compiled. This trip was to spend an hour or so out of the house, peruse, be a bit upper in the market, and soak in some christmas spirit. Or drink it, one or the other.
