jeanniejeanniejeannie.co.uk BLOG 2nd December 2018

Over the advent period the 24 days taking us up to Christmas Day our daily postings will have a Christmas theme. Detailed below is what they will cover.

They are similar posts to our usual Daily Posts but as you’d expect, with a Christmas theme. Open it up every day and treat it like an Advent Calendar. The down side is there is no chocolate but there are other goodies.

There will be a different Christmassy picture every day. Our Christmas card to you, 25 of them over the period up to and including the big day.

The first section of the post will be a Christmas themed piece of writing or list. Our usual features such as “Ewan Aged 3 Blog”,  “George Aged 2 Blog”, “I Didn’t Know That Last Christmas”, “Nice Little Christmas Number”.
