Please open the door and step inside our Cosy Christmas Wonderland, (also know as our sitting room :) )

We decorated our sitting room last week :) I like to really go to town on our sitting room, making it look extra cosy and Christmassy :) We put a few more decorations around the house, but the sitting room is where most of them go, and I love it :)


We actually have more decorations than this in our sitting room, streamers on ceiling, snowmen on the window sill, my crochet gingerbread house on the tv, tinsel and decorations on the photos, they are all over, and I absolutely adore been in this room, with the fire on, lamp lit, and the tree lights sparkling, it is so cosy, so Christmassy and so lovely, I feel completely happy when in this room, I wish we could leave the decorations up all year round :) Absolute cosy, Christmassy bliss :)

Have you put yours up yet? I am really looking forward to looking through my favourite blogs and seeing all your lovely Christmas tree’s and decorations :)

We are nearly all done and prepared now for Christmas, the house is decorated, most of the presents have been bought and are put away ready to wrap, I am nearly done on my Christmas crochet gifts, I am going to make a start soon on some trial runs for my Christmas baking, so all that is left to do really is to send out the cards (most of them are wrote out ready to send), get the rest of the pressies in and wrap them all, do my Christmas baking and cleaning (which I will start on about a week before Christmas) and get our Christmas grocery shopping in (again, about a week before Christmas) and we are all done :)

As you can probably tell, I like to be organised, and I have a To Do notebook :) I feel very happy as I am ticking off all the things I have wrote in my To Do book :) I adore Christmas, and I like to make the most of it, so I like to be very organised at this time of year, and keeping a  To Do books helps me to to that :) I have already wrote out crochet gift idea’s to make for next Christmas, lol, I plan on making an early start on them next year, so I can make more, and so that the things I make are better than what I have made this year, as this year, I started on my crochet Christmas gifts quite late, so am only making simple things, as I do not have the time now to be making fancy things, but next year I will :) And on that note, let me show you the recent Christmas crochet gifts I have made and am making :)

I have crocheted for my dad and Pam, matching slippers :)

They love anything like this, so I thought it would be a great idea to do them matching pairs, I can just see them sitting together on Christmas night with their matching slippers on, very snug under the blanket I crocheted for them (shown in the previous post ) :)

I made Pams slippers quite girly, with a pretty flower on the front

And I have kept my dads quite manly looking, with them been brown and trimmed in grey

I do hope they like them :) I am currently crocheting a big, double size blanket for my mother and father in law, to go on their bed, to give them extra warmth on these cold winter nights :) I am crocheting it in mainly green to match their bedroom, but with some pastel colours thrown in too, I have been working on this for 8 days now, and am half way done :)

I have done this blanket in simple stripes, for quickness really, as with it been so close to Christmas, I did not want to risk doing anything more fancy and time consuming just in-case I did not have the time to get it finished, wrapped and give to my in laws on Christmas day, but next year I will make them (and my dad and Pam ) a fancier blanket :)

So, thats it for my Christmassy part of this post :) What else have I been doing, well now, let me see :) I have cleaned my in laws huge sitting room rug for them, and cleaned their windows to save them doing it, I have been watching Christmas films at every spare moment I get, and I have been loving watching I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! Does anyone else watch this? I love it, and I have also been enjoying watching the X Factor and can not wait for the final (I want Marcus or Amelia to win :) ), and I have been browsing the BBC website to see what they are showing this Christmas, and there is plenty to keep me happy, Dickensian things, cookery shows, comedy shows, here is the link so you can see what the BBC has to offer us this Christmas, I have been shopping and cleaning, going for fresh winters walks, and baking too :)


I made this cake the other day and adore the pink glitter on it :)

It is a lemon sponge cake, filled and topped with lemon butter icing, and decorated with little sweeties and edible pink glitter :)

I am in love with edible glitter now, lol :)

And thats it for this post :) I am going to do some cleaning and ironing today, then get myself all snug and cosy, wrapped up in my granny square blanket on the settee, in our Cosy Christmas Wonderland, and carry on crocheting my in laws blanket while watching lovely Christmas films, then tonight, hubby and I, and all 4 of our lovely animals, will get nicely settled in the most festive room on our house, and have a lovely and cosy night together, I LOVE this time of year, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and leave your wonderful comments :)
