Countdown to Christmas – Advent Calendar Day 10

There’s nanny Pat and granddad Paul; there are Millie and Pinkie, Binky and Toasty. In the age of the patchwork family (read: uncle Henry’s third wife and the kids from her second marriage) the number of stockings to be filled has gone through the roof. And even if you stick to yours and yours truly, the task to fill those longish socks with something fun yet useful yet budget friendly can be a daunting one.

One lucky winner shall be relieved today, as Mothercare will be sponsoring a Santa-sack sized load of stockings. There’s something for baby, something for the kids, something for the husband and even for the grandparents. Time to put the kettle on, your feet up and relax now. Ahhhhh.

And the Mothercare Stocking Fillers go to: Gillian Holmes. Congratulations! Please email me and I will pass on your details.

As for tomorrow – another treat for the ladies. One of my favourite beauty brands has teamed up with an absolutely awesome French fashion designer. Can you guess?
