My name is Charlotte, I’m 32 and this is the first Christmas I’ve had a stocking! No, don’t worry this isn’t a sob story about how I didn’t get any presents at Christmas when I was a child. As this is our first Christmas in what I keep calling our ‘grown up house’ (we have a drive and a garage) Jack, June and I are starting to make our own traditions…starting with stockings.

January was honestly a really hard month, which totally took me by surprise. I wasn’t ready for the emotional rollercoaster it put me on. Let me tell you more...
