It’s almost that time of year – let the countdown begin!

So the children are almost back to school after the summer holidays, so the next major event on the calendar is….? begins with C and ends with S Yes you guessed it, it’ll soon be Christmas!

You may think that I’m crazy but with two small children I have to start planning early. Personally I love it, I’m like a big kid so for me the lead up to Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year!
This year, were thinking about taking the children (aged 4 and 15 months) on the Santa Express – a round trip train ride from Pickering where the kids will get to meet Santa in his on board grotto. I think I’ll be more excited than the kids!
Sometimes I think that the lead up to Christmas can be better than the big day itself! So I have lots of little outings and treats planned for my two little ones.


If you having been thinking about a treat for yourselves or family in the run up to the big day – now is the time to book your Christmas markets mini cruise. Either as a mini getaway or a present itself, the Christmas markets are so magical at that time of year. Obviously they are starting to get booked up as they have already been on sale for over a year! However, there is still some availability on selected ships and it’s a great way to get into the festive spirit!

The P&O Ventura is doing a festive itinerary on the 3rd December for 2 nights over to Bruges, with insides starting from just £299pp. Bruges is such a fantastic market to visit with its quaint little streets, outdoor ice rink and of course it’s famous chocolate shops! An ideal opportunity to purchase some Christmas gifts of even treat yourself!
