Favorite Christmas Films!

Howdy everyone, how are you all? good, I hope and not too tired after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I bet there were a lot of people using the weekend deals to get the majority of Christmas presents for others as if that’s not the perfect time to buy them when is? I know me and my family made good use of it.

We’ve not had much time to relax during the day this past week, with having to go out and get bits and pieces, so my foot has been in use a lot which isn’t helping it to get better, in fact, it’s actually a darker color to my other foot and very swollen around my ankle 😔 But when we’re winding down at night to rest, with a hot chocolate and blankets, we’ve been getting into the festive spirit by watching Christmas films!
