(Click on image to download the printable)

It feels good to be up and running again after being ill for quite a while. That is why I have been quiet lately, I have been stuck in bed feeling very yucky! I've missed you all and hope to catch up with you and your lovely blogs very soon. 

It's time for the countdown to the big day! Who is like me and enjoys having an Advent calendar? I'm like a big kid and get so excited opening the window each day! I love this time of year, pretty lights, present wrapping, cheesy Christmas music, Christmas meals and yummy delights to eat! 

As you can see, my bucket list is looking very Christmassy! I'm really looking forward to all the plans I have for this month. On my November bucket list I had planned to go away for the weekend but we had car trouble so didn't end up going. But we are making up for it and going away this month for a couple of days instead, which I'm really looking forward to. 

What plans do you have for the festive season? 


  1. A lovely list.
    I have just booked tickets for the Rock 'n Roll panto in Liverpool.

    1. Thank you, glad you like it. That sounds like it will be fun, I love a good panto! My favourite one was Dick Whittington with the Chuckle Brothers; so funny! :-)

  2. Glad you are finally feeling better. Great Christmassy list.
    We have started our traditional Christmas market visits last weekend - coming up on the blog tomorrow - I just love them all. :) xx

    1. Feeling much better thanks Katia. I've got my appetite back now! I will definitely be over to see your post :-) xx

  3. Hope you are feeling much better now, Rachel.
    Get yourself to Chatsworth for the decorated historic house, it could double up for the picnic, if you're really hardy!
    My plans for the festive season? Make it through with my sanity and bank balance just about intact! Oh, and drink some sherry - Christmas is the only time of year I ever do! xxx

    1. Thanks Curtise, I'm feeling so much better. It's so good to be enjoying food again! Definitely going to Chatsworth this month and thanks for the tip. You are right, I could double up, I've got my blanket at the ready! Christmas is the only time I drink sherry too! I do like a bit of sloe gin as well! xxxxx

  4. I love your lists! An Xmas play list is defo on mine & a few festive days out with the kids! Glad you're on the mend! Ax

    1. Aww thank you! I'm glad you like them. I'm feeling so much better, thanks. I'm eating again which is a good sign!! I love a bit of cheesy Xmas music xx
