Mrs Mulled Wine's Christmas Countdown - 2 weeks to go

Eeek! 2 weeks to go. I finally feel on top of my Christmas shopping with a successful trip to intu Metrocentre on Monday and North Shields Christmas Market this weekend. If you've never been to North Shields Christmas Market before, I'd highly recommend checking it out next year. There are over 100 local traders and all the best ones seem to go here. From local ales and distilleries to The Brownie Bar, Geordie Bangers, Homemade Jam and Chutney Stalls, the best pies, homemade wreaths for sale, sweet stalls, Christmas cakes and lots and lots of Christmas treats, it's such a good place to support our local businesses. Entry is free and there's a funfair for kids (£2 per ride), Alpacas to stroke and feed, birds of prey to meet, Elf crafts in the shopping centre and food vans (including churros, hog roast, Hadrian's pizza and a mobile gin bar). It's loosely Victorian themed and a lot of th traders dress up and they're all super friendly,

How hard is it to make your own wreath for Christmas?

Disclosure: House of Botanics organised a blogger event and helped us to create our own wreath free of charge. They did not ask for any coverage.

How hard is it to make your own wreath for Christmas?  - final wreaths

I have always wanted to make my own Christmas wreath so was delighted when House of Botanics organised a blogger event and asked me to go along and have a go. House of Botanics is the most gorgeous florist and plant shop in STACK Newcastle (facing Tyneside Cinema, just up from YOLO Coffee). Owner Naomi has years of experience, is knowledgeable and very customer-orientated. A personalised service is at the heart of everything they do here and if you're looking for a special gift or Christmas wreath/plant/bouquet of flowers this Christmas, I'd highly recommend popping in. I noticed gifts for sale from just £2.

Mrs Mulled Wine's Christmas Countdown - 3 weeks to go

Only three weeks to go! My pre-Christmas stress seems to have melted away a little this week. I'm not putting too much pressure on myself, haven't packed too much into my diary, I'm cutting down on work and I've spent a lot of time watching Christmas Movies. I hope after Monday (my Christmas shopping day) I'll feel a lot more organised and prepared too.
