Family Christmas and New Year Memories

To top off my first year of blogging, I’ve been writing a weekly series of Christmas Memories blog posts.

When I look back over how much we’ve packed in over such a short period of time – from writing our letter to Santa to going ice skating and visiting Father Christmas in various grottos – I realise what an amazing time we’ve had full of different experiences, family, friends and adventure.

All topped off with a surprise for Mummy, as you’ll see below!

Here’s what we’ve been up to over the Christmas week:

Took part in a beautiful Cristingle service on Christmas Eve…

…hung our stockings out for Father Christmas…

…opened lots of presents!…

…ate some lovely home-made Christmas pudding…

…visited the Sealife Centre Manchester for a family day…

…chilled out in our new onesies…

…the grown ups visited Cloud 23 in Manchester for New Year’s Eve cocktails…

…followed by Piccolino Didsbury for an excellent New Year’s Eve meal…

…and Mr EC surprised Mummy with a gorgeous ring!

Happy New Year to you all!


Working Mum of two, living in Didsbury, Manchester, in a house which breeds washing, mushed up raisins and various toys in the brightest primary colours. Oh, and the odd empty wine glass.
