It's safe to say that this year hasn't entirely gone to plan and with the Christmas around the corner I think it's time to think a bit differently.
Normally this time of year I fill my weekends travelling, seeing family and Christmas markets but with a lot of these events being cancelled I decided to go in a different direction.
First thing was trying to think of ways to get out of the house, It's so easy to get stuck inside so I wanted to fully embrace the season. So I looked up local walking routes but also little trips to nearby villages so that we could experience some new places and get in the Christmas spirit.
I also looked into some Christmas crafts and this called for a trip to the local craft store. We decided to do wreaths this year as well as some some Christmas baking and of course the obligatory gingerbread house decorating.
One thing that we do every year is a Christmas movie night with a hot chocolate station and cosy PJ's, this really gets me into the Christmas spirit.
I think this year it's safe to say that we need to think a little more outside the box in order to fully embrace the season. Even though this year will be little on the unusual side I think it's still important to make it one to remember.
