Not long now?! Advent starts in two days, and then it’s here – the ‘Christmas Build Up’! From the 1st December onwards I intend to listen to all my favourite Christmas music (‘Now’ Christmas Album, of course – few things can top singing along to Maria Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas,’ whilst prepping dinner?); eat mince pies at every possible opportunity (I have already had several, but don’t tell anyone); and fill my house with as many fairy lights as is humanly possible!
In addition, this year, I intend to ‘self-sparkle’! Yes, that is a made-up term. I don’t mean metaphorically, (although it has to be said, I can be quite good company) but I mean quite literally. I have fished out of my wardrobe everything that is vaguely or fabulously sparkly, sequinned or has a silver sheen and I am going to wear at least one item of ‘bling’ every day until Christmas. A gold skirt, a spangly jumper, glittery socks or a completely over the top necklace. I’m getting it on, it’s Christmas after all!
