Christmas | The Christmas Tag

With Christmas only five days away and me having a tonne of Christmas presents still to wrap, I decided what better way to procrastinate than with the good old Christmas tag? 

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

I much prefer synthetic Christmas trees to real ones. I love how full synthetic trees are and the fuller the better!
You’re in a coffee shop, it’s December, what do you pick?
It's got to be between a Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks or an orange hot chocolate from Costa. I've been drinking so much hot chocolate this year! Might as well make the most of being pregnant and indulging whilst I still can right?
Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
We have a red, silver and white colour scheme on our Christmas tree and have done for the past five years. It's just proper Christmassy isn't it?
Giving or receiving?
I used to love receiving presents more than giving, but that was before I became a mum. I cannot wait to see George's face on Christmas Day, this year he will understand much more which just adds to the excitement.
To mince pie or not to?
Not to. I'd rather eat all of the chocolate! 
What’s your traditional Sunday lunch?
On a normal Sunday it would be chicken, vegetables, roasties, yorkshire puds and swimming in gravy. For Christmas day this year, we're having turkey but on a buffet and not as a traditional sit down meal as we're hosting! 
Christmas day fashion.
I used to dress a bit more dressy on Christmas Day, but now it's all about donning an ugly Christmas jumper! 
What’s your favourite Christmas song?
Baby Please Come Home by Michael Buble is the best Christmas song. Ever.
What’s your favourite Christmas film?
It's between Elf and The Santa Clause Trilogy. I'm yet to watch The Santa Clause this year though, maybe that's what I'll do tonight,
Open presents before or after lunch?
Before lunch of course. Who can wait that long? 
Have you done the Christmas tag?
Link me below so I can see your family traditions.

Welcome to Tots and Tantrums

I've always loved to write but I fall in and out of love with blogging on the reg. I guess it could be down to the fact I've never really found my niche until now. 

When George entered the world on 10-09-2014 my whole world changed. I became what I feared most, I became a baby bore, you've just go to look at my Facebook to see that, we don't mean to do it though, we just can't help ourselves.

With George developing into this funny, clever and mischievous toddler, and another baby on the way I wanted to try something new. I've been toying with the idea of Tots and Tantrums for a while now and since my maternity leave starts this Friday, I thought there's no time like the present. I must be mad because I'm going to have my hands full as it is come January without trying to make my mark on the internet as well! 

So here I am, ready to talk about what life is like with a newborn and a toddler!

Wish me luck!
