Stuff Those Stockings...

So it's Friday, which usually means a This Week the Mice Have Mostly Been blog post, but this week the Mice have mostly been sniffling, coughing, sick kids... So, rather than bore you with our daily routine of medicine, trying to sleep and generally feeling horrible, we thought we'd change things up a little and bring you something a bit more upbeat...

It's the last weekend before Christmas, we're all hurtling towards a few work-free days full of eating, drinking and generally being merry, but there are just a few last things to sort out: 

  • getting in enough food and drink to suitably fill our work-free days;
  • sorting out a sparkly, pretty Christmas Day outfit with enough give at the waistband to allow for gorging on all that food and drink; 
  • setting a suitably aggressive out of office message to scare off any over-eager colleagues working the graveyard shift at the office; and
  • of course, snapping up the perfect last minute stocking fillers...

Who doesn't go to sleep on Christmas Eve after carefully hanging a big sock (or pillow case if you're particularly greedy) at the end of the bed hoping that when you wake up in the morning, it will be filled with amazing little gems?! No matter whether you're three or fifty three, you deserve an awesome stocking to kick off your Christmas Day, so if you're in charge of stuffing stockings this year, and you're running low on ideas, Mice to the rescue...

And that's your lot little blog buds! The Mice are off for a well-earned Christmas break together! Thank you for all of your support since we started the blog in February. It's been a pretty incredible year and we've enjoyed every minute of it! We'll be back in the New Year full of Christmas tales and Parisian New Year adventures, but until then...



  2. Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
