A made up infographic about real mums at Christmas

I start off the festive season with all kinds of amazing intentions. I’m going to make presents for everyone. Everything I make my gifts with is going to be ethically sourced from an independent retailer. I scour Christmassy magazines for ideas and cut things out to stick on my ‘ideas’ board.

Then I thing ‘sod it’ and buy everything from Amazon.

Does this sound like your kind of Christmas?

    Hah! A lot of that sounds familiar. I meant to make some chutney and little hampers, but then it was December all of a sudden…

    Oh God I am like the QUEEN of amazon! lol ;) the idea of ‘handmaking’ something just makes me shudder and drink more…

    Haha sort of .. I started very early this year but my body hasn’t been playing ball. I managed to make a few gifts but not any Christmas cards so I was happy to find some I made for previous years that didn’t get used :)

    I finally finished my first (and most probably my last!!) sweet tree yesterday

    Get in!!! haha

    Love your infographic! I identify with things I have to do and really want to (I’m a mom of 3). About the budget, I have no trouble at keeping at it :))

    So true. I have totally lost track of what I’ve ordered for whom.

    Ha ha! This is all so true! I always start off with such good intentions and then panic buy at the last minute. Somehow, every year I manage to pull it off though, but then again I have all year to practise!
