Christmas is always a time of year I really look forward to; not because of the obvious reasons (presents, lots of food, Sky TV at Mum’s house) but because it marks the end of the year and it’s nice to have a bit of time to chill out and reflect on the past twelve months.
2013 was a crazy year for me, I’m only just realising now. I moved house, got a new job and I think I grew up quite a bit too! 2013 was also the year I embraced flat shoes, finally.
Anyway, over my Crimbo break...
... I’ll be thinking about resolutions for next year and just enjoying the company of my family who I don’t get to see too much throughout the year. My family are Danish, so we don’t have your typical British Christmas – we celebrate on the 24th for a start – and we open our pressies at night.
We’ll have a traditional Danish dinner, then light the candles on the tree and open our presents in candlelight with a roaring fire. It’s pretty magical!
This year I’m especially conscious of all the help I've received from people – moving to London as a young person is so financially draining and I've definitely tapped up the bank of Mum & Dad to help with deposits, bike repairs, tax bills…. Not to mention the advice I get from my family about EVERYTHING, from which bank to use, how to read a gas meter and how to make my washing smell nice! Sooooo this year instead of bog-standard Christmas cards I decided to show my appreciation for my family and friends with personalised Christmas cards from Instant Print.
I uploaded my own images and messages to Instant Print so each card had a special meaning for the recipient. The cards are printed using quality materials, which makes them more like another present rather than just another Christmas card to be read and thrown away.
So that’s what I’m looking forward to this year – giving something back to all the wonderful people who mean the most to me.
I hope everyone has an AMAZING time! xx
