🎄Musical Mum Advent Calendar🎄⛄️10th December⛄️🎶Walking In A Winter Wonderland🎶
A Winter Wonderland. This is a brilliant description of the awe children must feel at this time of year, and it is so exciting to share in it with them. Christmas lights are everywhere, and babies and children alike will love to see all the twinkling decorations. Now that it gets dark so early, take a walk at around 5 o’clock to look at your neighbours’ Christmas lights. Some local streets may really go to town every year, so seek those out as well! How many reindeer can you spy on your travels??
Perhaps an unpopular opinion but Christmas Eve is my favourite day of the year more so than Christmas Day.
Christmas seems to just wiz by in a chaos of ripping paper and food ( which I also love) but there’s something extra special about Christmas Eve and the excitement of what’s to come!
We do xmas eve bags in our house which always include a few crafts and then there’s lots of Christmas films and we also have a random family tradition of going to @pizzaexpress in Hertford for dinner then home for new PJs Xmas film and snacks for Santa.
What are you looking forward too most over the festive period ? #2weekstilxmaseve#countdowntochristmas#mumsguidetohertford#mumofboys#pizzaexpresshertford#pizzaexpress#xmasfilms#snacksforsanta#reindeerready
Today, try not to say sorry automatically: For not hoovering, for being a bit late, for being upset. For being you. 💛
Instead try saying thank you: for being understanding, for being patient, for listening, for caring. You’ll feel lighter and those around you will feel grateful and valued. Win win! This is one to keep practicing 🤩
By saying sorry we automatically feel embarrassed, guilty, ashamed and just a bit negative. We feel bad. If instead we flip it and offer thanks to people around us we are less likely to self-punish or criticise as we receive a smile or thanks in return, boosting our self esteem. It’s a tough cycle to break out of but just being mindful of it is enough for now.
p.s. Why do we say sorry when someone bumps into us??? 🤔😳🤯
I’d love to hear how you get on with this. Tag me in your stories and use #naomismindfuladvent

Weekend di piena atmosfera natalizia, il countdown è ufficialmente iniziato!
