BusyLazyMum’s Top 5 Christmas Movies
1. Home Alone.
I love this film! My husband loves it too and the boys recently watched it for the first time and they found it hilarious. They love Tom & Jerry and this film is the ‘real life’ version of slap stick comedy. This almost 30 year old film is still a classic.
2. Love Actually.
Who doesn’t love a star studded lovey-dovey Rom-Com at Christmas.
3. The Grinch.
I’m a big fan of the Dr Seuss books/films and Jim Carrey doesn’t disappoint when the Grinch seeks revenge on Whoville but is befriended by a little girl.
4. The Holiday.
Another festive star studded lovey dovey rom-com to snuggle up and watch at Christmas.
Being raised by Elf’s Buddy was always going to be the most festive man in New York.

I heard of Inspirations Wholesale in Bromborough a long time ago and unfortunately never got round to popping in. When I found out about their Christmas open weekend via Facebook I knew this would be the perfect opportunity for me to pop in and have a nosey and I am so glad I did!I wasn’t quite sure where Inspirations was but found it relatively easily. I was shocked by the sheer size of the building! I wasn’t expecting a little shop but was expecting something less than half the size, it was huge!! We went in and they were offering drinks and cake for a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support which I thought was a brilliant idea!I love Christmas and love to make it special for our boys. I like to have themes when we decorate for Christmas and recent years have been quite bland. So I have been in search of some inspiration to make our first Christmas in our own home that extra bit special. Inspirations Wholesale have so many stunning themes I am stuck for choice!
We went in and the boys were so excited to see all the trees and the colours. There was a wreath making display which Tristan watched eagerly and asked if we could make one. I promised to do one nearer Christmas so watch this space – I’m not very artistic so it might turn into an epic fail but it’s worth a try, and thanks to Inspirations we have an idea of where to start.
We wondered around the colourful displays and came to their Facebook frame competition, which there was a short queue for. The boys got involved and used the Christmassy props provided. Good luck to everyone that entered! The prize is a £50 gift voucher to spend in store. I love the elf hat Lewis is wearing its £9.99 + VAT and you can buy it here.
We then went for a wonder along the aisles where the non display items were and the boys started to get a bit bored. So we only had a short wonder and then left. I thought these elf signs were great and will 100% be adding one to our decorations this year. Which one though? Decisions Decision! You can buy them for £3.75+VAT here
The boys both loved the elf trees. Although Tristan said he loved the upside down tree too. As the elf comes to stay with us throughout December we will probably be buying most of this range in the near future.
It’s safe to say that when it’s a bit closer to Christmas and my ‘Christmas is ages away’ Scrooge husband has found his Christmas spirit we will be returning and I shudder to think how much we will spend – not because it’s expensive because everything I saw was very reasonably priced, but because I will want to buy it all!
