What If Christmas..Perhaps.. …Means A Little Bit More!”

What If Christmas..Perhaps.. …Means A Little Bit More!” The Weekly Link Up.

Hello friends. How has your weekend been? It was my long weekend to work so not done nothing else much this weekend. Apart from eventually clearing out the garage today to make room for the builder to arrive and turn our garage into a dining room.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!” ― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

All Good Fun:

Sunday was a long and fun day. I got up early and did a few jobs around the house. I also set of to work for 10 am and it was none stop all day. Finished a busy days work at 4 pm then I rushed home to get changed for our work Xmas meal.

I booked a taxi for 45 minutes after I returned home back to work for the party and he arrived 15 minute early. Talk about rushing!! I was trying not to laugh at the taxi driver being a right Grinch about the holiday season, when I was actually wearing my Grinch knitted cosy jumper!!

I love it when we can wear our seasonal jumper to work every day throughout December too. This is one of my favourite seasonal jumpers and I will be wearing it loads after my week off. Talking of week off, I have a few days booked off work so the builder can turn our garage into a dining room. Eek I can not wait.

How To Style A Christmas Jumper:

I love as they say, ugly jumpers with my plain black work trousers for work and jeans for shopping. I wanted to wear something a little different for our work Christmas meal so teamed it up with a denim skirt, thick black tights and long brown boots. All picked out by my Daughter.

What I Wore:

Jumper: Primark ( 2018) | Denim Skirt: Primark | Thick tights: Primark | Boots: c/o Marisota | What do you think about my Grinch Xmas jumper?

    She did a great job picking out your outfit!

  2. Claire, I absolutely adore your Grinch sweater! My favorite Christmas sweater says “Bah Humpug” with the picture of a pug dog. I am trying to stay away from stores as much as possible this Christmas and focus on the more important meaning behind this holiday. Good luck with your dining room!

    I love the Grinch soooooo much so I adore everything about this post. Last year I received a mug that says “I am a GRINCH before coffee” with his smiling face on the other side. Use it all year long. Hahaha. Well I hope the Xmas meal got only better from the taxi driver and onward.


  7. Love your sweater! I love that quote as it shows there is more to the holiday than crazy consumerism! We need to think of being with family, enjoying company. Love that your daughter helped with your outfit!

    I wonder if my younger boys are still afraid of the grinch! That is a fun holiday sweater, and it is nice when the work wear is more relaxed: I remember enjoying jeans day at work when I was teaching.

    This is such a cute sweater Claire! I love the Grinch and the message behind his story. Our weekend was good. It flew by. We spent time with both sides of the family and just keeping up with all the other chores and errands. Not sure where the time goes but I don’t know if our list of things to do is getting smaller?! It doesn’t seem so. 🙁 Happy Monday and wishing you a great week ahead!
