This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

So it is safe to say The Mice are officially feeling festive! Christmas jumpers have been purchased, our present list is slowly being ticked off and our diaries are now full of Christmassy engagements! It's definitely the season to be taking as much vitamin C and echinacea as humanly possible to ensure we dodge a Christmas cold and can keep up with all the excitement and socialising!

When we haven't been writing thousands of Christmas to do lists, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Desperately searching for a spot of R&R after a seriously non-stop Parisian adventure! 48 hours were spent eating delicious dinners, sipping far too many cocktails, exploring the cobbled streets of Le Marais and inhaling copious amounts of macaroons and pastries! Across the two days we only spent 8 of those hours asleep and managed to clock up 24,000 steps on the beautiful streets of Paris...I'm sure that counteracts all of those extra calories!!

Posts of where we went and what we got up to will be winging their way over shortly, however for now I'll leave you with a mini scrapbook picture reel of what the Mice did...











Sprucing up London Towers to heighten the festive feeling! As I've mentioned our diaries are now bursting at the seams with far too many drinks and dinners, so we're pretty much left with just Mondays to get anything done that doesn't involve drinking too many gin & tonics and eating mince pies! This week Middle Mouse and I used our Monday evening off to have our first official Christmas night and put up our tree!

After a long day at work we bounded home, ripped open our advent window and jumped straight into our Christmas PJ's...if you're going to do a job, you may as well do it properly!!!

First things first...it's essential to have a Christmas film on in the background, but it's so hard to pick...


We eventually opted for good old Love Actually for some feel good viewing!


 Film sorted, next up - nibbles to fuel all that tree decorating...we thought smoked salmon, cream cheese and biscuits would be just the thing! We even ate them from our Christmas plate!



Tree up, lights secured, cream roses hung, there was one last job for me to do...



Drum roll please....ta dahhhh....



Just as we stood back to admire our handiwork the oven pinged and a hearty winter's dinner of beef bourguignon (courtesy of M&S we're not miracle workers!) and a big glass of red, was ready to be devoured!!!



We spent the rest of the evening cosy little mice, curled up in front of our tree watching Christmas films...bliss!!

Only 19 more sleeeeeeps!!!


On that note, stay cosy this weekend and of course get Christmassy! I think it's only right to sign off with one final Christmas message after our bumper Christmas week!!!!
