Make…

… your gingerbread house or village from a very handy kit. Becky B got me mine from John Lewis and although I was initially a bit freaked out by it, it turned out to be a great fun thing to do (particularly after the kids were in bed, a bit like grown-up colouring). I even went a bit nuts and ordered some tiny fake christmas trees and tiny plastic reindeer cake decorations off Amazon.

Watch…

…The CBeebies Christmas panto, on today at 5pm. This year it’s Alice in Wonderland. Giles is freaked out by Justin Fletcher but personally I can’t wait to see him as the Queen of Hearts. Just as Christmassy to watch it on telly next to a Christmas tree with a mince pie and less traumatising for the under-5s than hiking to an actual venue for a panto that may or may not be any good, or unintentionally hilarious, or full of off-colour jokes “for the grown-ups”.
