Not long now and I am so thankful that most of my Christmas preparations are done leaving me time to spend with the girls for all the fun bits. We have received our first ever hand made Christmas cards from the girls, aren’t they gorgeous? I shall be keeping hold of these forever.
Thankfully all the SIL’s sent out their children’s Christmas lists back in November giving me ample time to hit Amazon and get most of it delivered to the door. Just a couple of trips to Bluewater were needed and I think I’ll have to do one more trip on Wednesday when we take the girls to see Santa in his grotto. Which leads me on to tell you that they BOTH burst into tears on Thursday at the preschool Christmas party when Santa entered ‘Ho ho ho!’ It took me quite a while to calm them both down and they refused to go over and collect their presents or have their photo taken with him so I may not get a cute Santa photo this year! …unless of course I take the opportunity and have one done with me ;)
Advent calendar is up and each day we have a task to do like the Christmas Biscuits for example. Today (Saturday) I’m making a chocolate log, my plan is to vlog it but my hair is a mess – shall I shan’t I? PS. The girl’s helped decorate with the stars – recipe (super easy) to follow this week.
Christmas Tree‘s up and I’m amazed that it’s still intact – remember last year? There have been a few additions coming home from preschool which are what make the tree in my eyes. Thank you preschool you really are the best!
I haven’t got my turkey yet but I most likely will this week and put it in the freezer. I have been collecting various items each time I shop and yes the chocolates have been opened. Of course! Have you tried the Twisters in the Heros box? OMG …Mini Cream Eggs – delicious!
I received some Dylon Fabric paints from Bottle PR and we invited Sophie round to share the fun – (I must buy one of those plastic covers for the table as it did get marked with glitter) but look at Sophie’s picture isn’t she clever?
I have written and posted my cards that needed to go abroad and tonight I shall start on the rest and hopefully have them done by Monday and I shall also start wrapping tonight and start clearing out my spare room that looks like a toy warehouse right now.
I’m missing my Megan more than ever especially after today’s phone call where she’s in tears because she’s missing me too – please universe get us together soon, we need it. Love you Megz xxx
Menu for Christmas Day
Roast Turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing balls, roast potatoes, glazed carrots, brussels with pancetta, red cabbage and gravy – why do I feel as if I’ve forgotten something? Oh! Domestic Goddessque made me some Mulled cranberry Sauce – look
Christmas pudding with Brandy butter, cream or custard
I really fancy treating
myself us to a box of delicious chocs from M&S for after dinner.
Planned afternoon film on Christmas Day – The Lion King DVD with mince pies and a glass of champagne – Live it UP!
Oh and my last thought is Crikey! I haven’t got Paul a present yet so I’d best go and sort that out NOW! How about you? How are your Crimbo plans coming on?
I added my post to the Brit Mums Seasonal blog hop head over for plenty more Christmas spirit
