Are we all feeling festive?
This year I seem to be even busier than usual and I realised I can either sink under all the expections of making Christmas perfect or I can admit that I can’t do everything and do what I can with a smile. It’s too easy to try to do something nice and festive for the family and for you to end up like a ball of stress without anyone enjoying themselves.
So what if the Christmas cards don’t make the post because you can’t watch the subtitles on The Killing III as well as write your cards, or that you haven’t got time to make and decorate biscuits for the tree. If we think back to when we were young, of course we wanted the house to be decorated, for us to have Christmas treats and traditions but above all we wanted a happy family experience at Christmas. Perhaps this is getting a bit heavy but my point is to seek out a few fun and easy ways to build on the excitement of Christmas. Going to a Christmas show is one of those.
A couple of weeks ago we kicked off the festive season with a visit to see Stick Man at the Leicester Square Theatre. I really recommend that if you can still get tickets. This Saturday I’m taking Little T to see Charlie Bear at The Ambassador’s Theatre. Tickets are £5-15.
On Sunday the whole family is coming to see Sing Along Oliver at the Michael Croft Theatre in Dulwich this Sunday. Dressing up is optional and there will be an interval with festive refreshments and lots of singing. If that doesn’t get you in the festive spirit, nothing will!
Sing Along Oliver, Sunday 9th December, 4pm. Tickets are £4-5.
