A little while ago, I was fantasising on the blog about the one thing that would be top of my gift wish list this Christmas (a sofa bed so we could finally offer a place to sleep for guests). And look what the John Lewis elves sent me! I know, I know it felt like all my Christmases had come at once and we are super grateful.
The kids have been surprisingly giddy about the arrival of this new piece of furniture too, maybe because we’ve put it in our back room, which also doubles as their play room so they wasted no time in commandeering it. Actually it’s a really lovely size for all three of them to cuddle up on together. But when we opened it up and transformed it into a bed we were surprised at how big it extended. The kids were so excited about this ‘magic’ sofa that we let them get in and watch a film under a duvet, so it’s already had a bit of a test drive.
On Saturday morning I decided we should try and get a photo of all five of us while we were still in our PJs and there was at least a bit of light, so we set up the camera on timer and well you can imagine the ensuing chaos. I have hundreds of pictures of Greig’s behind and the kids in varying degrees of hilarity/misery. Nevertheless, big thanks to John Lewis for making our home feel even more special this year.
And finally I just want to say, at the risk of sounding cheesy, that I know there may be a lot of things we all want for Christmas (myself included) but there really is only one thing I actually need and that’s my little gang; Greig and the kids. Hope you have a wonderful break with your loved ones and I’ll see you on the other side.
