This week we were sent a lovely box of goodies from Jet2 Holidays to enjoy over Christmas. Hot chocolate, mulled wine spices from Fortnum & Mason, Luxury Mince pies, a gorgeous smelling candle and more! Embarrassingly, I’m not sure any of them will make it until Christmas except for the fun board game, as they were so tasty. Jensen and I may have eaten way more than our share of Walkers mini shortbread Christmas trees, but we did well to look innocent when the tin was opened last night by Gav to reveal only five little trees left. Haha. To be honest, if I’d have known there were five little trees in, I’d have called timber on a few more. They were so good. I think it’s genetic as my dad feels the same way about them.
So, we’ve been enjoying some delicious hot chocolate this morning before school, and this afternoon Hero and I have been sorting our sweeties out ready for the gingerbread house and counting the days until the Christmas holidays – which seem to be far too many for him as he desperately wants to enjoy a Christmas where he understands for the first time ever what’s going on, whereas I think there are too few as I have far too much to do.
So as I was saying, there’s nothing like hot chocolate in the winter, with candy canes [if you’re Jens] and marshmallows [if you’re me or Hero] and cream [if you’re Yotie]. Nearly every day after school when we are walking home, they ask for it. I like to think the promise of it makes them walk a little faster 😉
Probably because the weather here in Hampshire is pretty cold – in fact, it’s so cold that my poor toes were frozen this morning and my voice is still missing in action – I wished for not the first time this year that we were somewhere sunnier and cheerier.
If you’re feeling like I am, that you could all too easily pack your suitcase and head off somewhere with more natural vitamin d than we currently have here, then there’s an exciting new competition over at the Jet2 website! Every day from the 1st to the 26th of December, you could be in with a chance of winning a Jet2holiday! All you’ve got to do is head to www.Jet2holidays.com/advent, correctly answer a holiday-themed question, and you’ll be entered into the free prize draw!
Good luck – and thank you to Jet2 for our lovely treats!
