Tag – You’re it! All I Want For Christmas…

So I’m catching up, catching on. Bit of both really. The lovely Jess from Essentially Jess started a tag game last Tuesday amongst us bloggers and I was then tagged by the equally lovely Lara from This Charming Mum. What do you have to do? Write a Christmas wishlist! Hmmm, so many ways to go about this. Keep it witty, sentimental,Β sarcastic, materialistic or a little from Column A, B, C and D. Well, here is the road I chose to take…

All I want for Christmas is…

You see, some bloggers may be shocked to know that I have been living a blogger lie! I don’t have a laptop, or a smartphone. Yes, you heardΒ read me. I’ve been all, up there with the tweets and the Instagram and the instant ‘stuff’…but only because I’ve been borrowing my husband’s phone and using his laptop when he brings it home from work! I went so far as to swap phones with him so I could look all trendy this year at Keep Left Blogger’s Breakfast Challenge – my first bloggy event ever. So ahem. Bring on a new phone and a laptop…please? I have hooked up with Virgin Mobile as their new product tester, so hopefully that package will arrive before Christmas! And as for the laptop, well, I’m crossing my fingers.

Yes, this is seriously my phone right now…

Every year around Christmas time disaster strikes in my family. I kid you not. From car accidents, to illnesses and this year was a first – fire! We have decided our family is cursed with disaster around the busiest time of the year, so curse, be gone!

Last Christmas I couldn’t drink due to having a newborn. I missed out on the festivities that occur when my father-in-law brings out his best reds and port. I know he missed drinking with me too. I mean who wouldn’t? The amusement that people seem to get from me after I’ve had a few seems to provide entertainment for weeks, sometimes years, as the jokes of what I said or did go on and on. I miss being a red wine buddy! Now that I’m only breastfeeding the little guy once, twice tops a day, I think I could squeeze in just the one drinkie in that time where there’s hours and hours before the next feed.

Last Christmas my little guy was such a baby. Who am I kidding? He is still a baby! Well, he always will be to me. But I can’t wait to get cuddles from him at Christmas time and he is going to be surrounded by SO many cousins this year. Hugs and kisses all round!

Sniff sniff! He was so LITTLE! πŸ˜€

There is just too much of it in the world. And it’s growing EVERYDAY! I’m not sure how much more autotune I can take and I’m not sure I want my son growing up amongst it? It’s OK though. We’re training him up. Check out the vid. Kid’s 12 months old and rocking out to Pearl Jam already. Bless his soul!

And with that I say “Tag! You’re it!” Sorry if you’ve already had a turn and I didn’t notice…
