The last few months I have been working my way through my children’s christmas lists hoping I get everything they want. It’s one of the best things about this celebration watching the joy on my children’s faces as they rip away the wrapping paper and find the surprise inside.
Yet the other day my husband asked me if I had written my list for Santa. I hadn’t I focus so much on getting gifts for others because thats what I love to do I hadn’t sat down and thought about what I would like.
So I decided today I would write my list and share it with you all.
So here goes and in no particular order.
First up is something that is always on the top of any wish list that I write books. My passion for books started when I was a young girl and is still as strong today. Nothing beats the adventures you can find between the pages of a good book.
My first choice is a set of books which I have read many times but thanks to borrowing them to my children I am in need of a new set.
The wonderful books by J.R.R Tolkien. The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. I love this set so much. Tolkien was a writer that took many on this wonderful magical adventure. We learn of strength, courage and honour but the biggest lesson for me was always compassion.
My second choice again is a book. I came across the programme Duck Dynasty by chance a few months ago and I have fallen completely in love with the family. I am now just reading one of the books written by family members Wille and Korie Robertson and it is a truly lovely book so my second choice is the book written by the patriarch of the family Phil Robertson, Happy Happy, Happy.
My third choice is a bag, now its not a well known fact but I do have a bit of an obsession with handbags but lets be honest after seeing the Cath Kidston Pembridge Rose Everyday bag who wouldn’t? I have wanted a Cath Kidston bag for a long time and this material is beautiful.
My fourth choice is simply stunning. A beautiful dress made by the talented designers Scarlett & Jo. I saw this dress back in September at the Plus North event and fell in love then with it. I just think its beautiful, don’t you?
My fifth choice on my list is a Hydrocotton Robe from The White Company. A friend of mine brought me one of these robes about 6 years ago and now it is looking a little untidy and worn. I would love to replace it with this elegant robe.
