i bloody love a good christmas advert

This Christmas is going to be a bit of a dud.

There won’t be the parties, and dresses

Covered in sparkles and spritzed with scent.

We’ll all be at home, eating sprouts

And hams that’ll last for days.

But we’ll be with a few, the precious ones

That we need in our lives.

And when spring rolls around

Those lives will return

And our world will be sweet

With kisses on top.

I have this horrible feeling that Christmas isn’t going to be very loud and raucous this year. It’s going to be all about games of cards and Monopoly with just two other people.

But that’s fine. If anything, it’ll teach us a thing or two about what’s really important. In fact, I’d even go as far as saying that I’m quite looking forward to it. I’ll be spending the day with Noah and my dad, and it’ll be fun.

I love spending time with them, with Christmas TV and food and the pretty lights. It just feels cosy and wholesome and we actually laugh so much. I know that I’m lucky, so my thoughts are with people who are having a difficult time at this time of year.

And the reason that I’m so interested in Christmas today is because the Christmas adverts are here at last. I can’t get enough of them and I’m so excited to see some of the offerings from John Lewis and Sainsbury’s.

I hope that you are having as much fun as you possibly can in the build up. Even if you’re not, go and buy some mince pies and double cream. You’ll thank me later. You are welcome.

Much Love

Rachel xx

    Christmas this year will be the same as it’s been for quite a few years. My daughter & me, a simple roast. Giggles cos we’ll have wine. A movie (dvd cos I don’t have TV), music (always), maybe a game of Upwords (our favourite). And that’s it. We’re both gluten-free. She tolerates my low-carb keto diet. We don’t pig-out. Nothing to pig on. That wine is the Christmas treat. And you know what? These simple Christmases these past 15 yrs have been the happiest.

      I think you have the best kind of Christmas too. We sometimes get so caught up in trying to get the most Instagram friendly presents and food that we forget what’s really important. I had dad and Noah last Christmas and it was lovely.
