Special Beach Cottage Christmas Rituals
Tue 17th, Dec, 2013
Good morning ladies, how are we all, are we feeling super Christmassy? Well I can tell you that I am, things are slowly but surely being ticked off my list and I’m getting into the rituals and nice things of this silly and crazy but nice festive season…I’m far from perfectly organised though, I am just trying to remain calm and floating above it all in my mind….and we are off up the coast a bit this weekend for a get away to the beach…
I adore this time of year and for a very long time now I have treated myself and those I buy gifts for to a magazine subscription – I don’t know about you but it’s the kinda thing that slap bang in the middle of the year you don’t suddenly, on a Tuesday morning, turn around and go ‘righto I know I’ll subscribe to a magazine for a year’ but if someone gifts you one, or you take the oh-so-hard way out of Christmas shopping and buy one for someone or yourself online it’s just so heavenly all through the year to receive it….I’m not sure why but there is something nice about popping down to the post box and seeing a crisply wrapped unread magazine ready and waiting for you.
When I was very very young we used to get the newspapers delivered at the weekend and I was lucky enough to have Tammy magazine through my door…I loved loved loved that feeling when the newspaper plopped through the letterbox on a Saturday morning – it was the day that Tammy came…it took me far away from reality and into a sweet world.
I guess that’s the way a magazine subscription feels today too, the same as it did all those years ago on a Saturday morning…that little bit of deliciousness in the month, a homey magazine to peruse and dream or a recipe magazine to browse through and an excuse to make a cup of tea, run a bath and slip away quietly for a while.
So I’m super happy today to be teaming up with Magshop to offer A Beach Cottage readers a chance to win a subscription to your fave magazine for the year, all you have to do is answer the question below in the comments.
