  2. I've not even looked yet. I use to love highlighting all my favourite must-have shows but now Christmas is so busy that I rarely watch any TV. I hope you have loads of fun. Mich x

  3. I can't wait to watch The Stick Man, I think I read the book briefly once but I love The Gruffalo and Room On A Broom so can't wait for this!! The kids have been asking when Fungus the Bogeyman is going to be on! It is one they have been looking forward to! I remember reading the books when I was younger! And I think I will be finishing Christmas Day off with Mrs Brown's Boys! Love it!!
