Our Festive Bucket List
Updated: Oct 11
It is December already which means it is almost Winter and Christmas! It most definitely is the most wonderful time of the year. Today marks the start of Blogmas in many content writers diary, this is my second year and I am determined to get through the month without missing any days this time (we are moving home next week so fingers crossed).
Blogmas is all about festive love and posting a blog post everyday. Are you taking part?
I thought it would be fun for us to come up with a festive bucket list. Something bursting with fun festive things that we can mostly do as a family and while the boys are still young enough to enjoy he magic of it all.
