Festive Forget Me Not!

unnamed

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

We wish!  All mums know the reality: convincing over-excited children to get some sleep before the big day, wrapping presents late into the night and stressing over last minute food preparations.

This year, make sure you are prepared for Christmas Eve by pre-empting any of the classic problems, so you can tuck yourself in with the confidence that it is going to be a joyful day ahead.

To help you out, I have put together the following festive forget-me-nots, for a Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

If you have left the present wrapping to the last minute, the last thing you want to do is run around the house, looking for something sticky to substitute when you run out of tape! Make sure you buy a fresh roll in advance, so you don’t end up in a sticky situation.

For Santa.
