There’s two sides to every coin!

Lockdown, shmockdown!

Last weekend both myself and Mat should have been away for the weekend.

We’d planned a little pre-Christmas getaway to Stratford-upon-Avon, but unfortunately that’s been scuppered.

So instead we put the Christmas decos up.

Not sure if you’ve ever tried putting Christmas decos up with 4 kids, but it didn’t get me into the Christmas spirit quite as being in Stratford would have.

Sitting down, having a little drink, a nice bite to eat, no questions, no bickering…..

Oh sorry, started to day dream a little there.

Back to putting the decos up with the kids.

Jeeze it was tricky.

“Can I put this here mommy”

“Can I hang this here daddy”

“But Layla has more tinsel than me, it’s sooooo unfair”

You get the picture don’t you?

But we’re not one of those families who would enter our house and tree in competitions.

As its more of a National Lampoons kinda stylee.

We’ve got all sorts.

Kids home-made stuff from playschool, stuff me and Mat have collected from our travels, my spectacular (even if I do say so myself) Mickey Mouse bauble decoration, lights galore (and no, none of them match), teddies with one eye, ornaments with wonky feet and so non.

I’m sure it plays on Mat’s OCD, I know he would love to get rid of the dodgy decorations and have all the lights the same, but nar, not going to happen, not on my watch.

But now it’s done and it feels very homely, which is how it should be in my book.

It was all a bit last minute though.

As you well know we’ve been decorating and DIY’ing for the past 3 weeks, all building up to going away, then WHAM!

So, we changed our plans and put the decorations up a week early instead, and yes it did literally take all weekend.

But I’m an expert in this, I have to be with 4 kids.

I’m an expert in adapting and making sure stuff gets done.

This is one of the things that sets us aside as a business, especially in the current climate.

We’re always willing to adapt, always able to cope with a curveball and that’s why our service is second to none.

“Well, that’s it for another year”. That’s what Mat’s nan used to say every Christmas bless her. But it is, another one done. Never thought I’d find myself having a lockdown Christmas to be honest, but any excuse to sit around in my PJ’s playing games, drinking,...

2020 - I think we would all agree was not what any of us imagined.  None of us could have foreseen the way our businesses had to change or how they have been affected.  2021 brings hope, hope that we will start to see our businesses return to some type of normality. ...
