Berry the Elf in 2018 – days 1-7 #elfontheshelf

I still can’t quite believe we’re in December, but my son has been counting down the arrival of a certain little elf for weeks.  So here is the first instalment of our adventures with Berry the Elf in 2018 – days 1-7.

1st December

A tricky one as my son and I were away overnight and there was no way Berry could hide away without being seen.  So he called in Daddy P to aid his arrival so he was in place before the two of us got back from Derbyshire.

A bit of Reindeer Hoopla fun and it turned out that Berry was a considerably better shot than the rest of us!

Pamper time with a nice relaxing bath and drink by candle light.  My son was so excited that Berry likes marshmallows in his bath.  I’ve suggested that having ours with hot chocolate is definitely a better idea!

7th December

Berry set my son a challenge to finish what he’d started.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
