Cheaper than therapy

Shhhh….Don’t say the C word.

on August 28, 2014

Christmas. That’s right, Christmas. You didn’t think I meant the other one did you? Walk away from the screen right now and wash your mouth and mind out.

I definitely meant Christmas!

It’s a comin’ people. 17 weeks

I hate to be the one to break it to you but it is. The X Factor is kicking off again this week-end and that signals Summer’s over like nothing else.

If this year you intend to break the habit of a life time, get yourself absolutely organised and awesome then you are going to need two three things;

  • An early bird shopping trip to bag the inevitable ‘must have’ that is on every childs Christmas list.
  • A Fabulous Frost Fair to stock up on a range of utterly beautiful and unique pieces which are simply perfect for all of the special people in your life (and you…we all deserve a treat!)
  • The third is the number of a good beautician…it is pointless to leave your festive defuzz booking to the last minute…get it in the diary now ladies!

Thankfully, because I adore Christmas, spending time with friends and a glass of the good stuff, I have got it all sorted for you.

All you need to do is get your tickets, invite your friends and look forward to feeling super smug on Christmas Eve as you curl up on the sofa watching Carols from Kings (or Home Alone, depending on your preference!)

1) Muma Leary’s Shopping Extravaganza.

This signals the start of your Christmas planning and preparation.

Shopping in the Christmas madness is no fun. Whether you’re the one with the buggy or the one being rammed in the ankles by someone elses, shopping with young children is rarely simple. More often it is stressful, manic and nerve shredding!

Avoid at all costs.

Instead, meet your friends for a relaxed day of shopping, book-ended with fizz and festive cheer at The Divine Devon Doorway. You can book your tickets by clicking the Eventbrite link on the left of this page (just below the search bar in fact) or by visiting the Eventbrite page which has all the details you need.

They’re selling quickly though so don’t wait too long. It’s great to see so many people confirming via Facebook but, without a ticket, that’s not a booking- if you’ve already paid me directly, you’re on the spreadsheet!! Sorry to sound like a geeky version of Scrooge.

Think roaring fire, glass of red and good friends.


2) The Fabulous Frost Fair.

This is the place to be this Christmas. The stunning Hillbark Hotel and Spa is the perfect venue for this 3 day event showcasing the very best of the North West independent businesses that focus on quality, originality and customer service.

Fabulous Frost Fair, Hillbark Hotel

With over 40 stalls of amazing products including clothes and accessories, candles and homeware, cards, books and gorgeous stationary as well as delicious food and drink, you can pick up everything you need whilst supporting your local area in the process.

The website launched this week and on there you can find out everything you need to know about tickets, opening times, exhibiting and the work of our chosen charity, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

3) The Beauty stuff.

Come on now; you have to do something yourselves! If I gave you the number of my lovely lady and then I couldn’t book in…well; it doesn’t bare thinking about!

Oh, Hillbark does have a spa though and, if it’s good enough for Rory Mc Ilroy…

And Relax…


Looking forward to seeing you all at either or both of these events now get out the onesie, it’s almost Autumn!

Love Muma.
