Ho Ho Ho

Just another quick post today, to share a christmas fave........quite a few years ago, when the boys were tiny, I wandered into Woolies and came out with a cheap christmas video, I had never heard of it before but the picture on the case swung it....I took it home, we all watched and there began my total love affair with J.Otto Siebold and Olive the other Reindeer....

Years on its still my favourite christmas film/book. I even have the pop up advent calendar and our dog (see last post) bears an uncanny resemblance to Olive. All his books are amazing.........pop one on your christmas list if its not too late x x x x x

Stay warm :)

P.S I'm having a little coupon code offer in my etsy shop, 10% off item price if you type in HOHOHO25 at checkout................:)


  1. Ooohhh Jane you've made me feel all sad and whistful again. How I miss Woolies the home of stuff you didn't know you needed, but so glad you brought it home with you. Will check out book. Our favourite Woolies buy is our Bingo game with spinny ball thing. We even do the Two fat ladies 88 thing.


  2. I know what you mean about woolies, I miss it a lot, ours has turned into an iceland!!!!!!You will often find me muttering how much I miss it as I walk past the big posters of deep fried prawns ;)

  3. That book looks so sweet, I'm off to check it out. I have a feeling that my littlest one might like it.
    Take care, have a great weekend.

  4. I remember that story when it first came out I love the advent calendar the graphics are so colorful!

  5. Never heard of it, but totally love the look of it...will have to check it out.

    I'm with you all, really miss Woolies. Ours turned into an Iceland too, and I hate it! Where else do I go to get a decent pick n' mix? Boo hoo.

    Have a super duper weekend!

  8. We miss our Woolies as well. Never heard of the book before but it looks lovely and how great a pop up calendar!

  9. I've never heard of Woolies...but we have that book and DVD! It's a very sweet story. The voice of Olive is Drew Barrymoore. they also aired this short movie on tv last week and it will probably be on again before christmas. Check your local

  10. Oh that little reindeer has serious charisma. I need to investigate Olive and his friends.I'm feeling a little nostalgic for Woollies too - especially PIck N Mix.
