So who's here to keep me company while I'm at work, and what are your plans for the day?
I'm working this morning, hopefully we'll finish early afternoon, then got to go pick C up from my parents.
Need to make MrDD's cheesecake this afternoon, and also do something about a card for MrDD from C - I completely forgot until he produced 2 cards for me yesterday, one from him and one from C! Oops!
Let C have his Christmas Eve box at some point - it's not that great, got some PJs, box of Christmas biscuits, couple of Christmas Mr Men books, including The Night Before Christmas which we'll read him tonight, and something else I'm sure that has completely gone from my mind!
Cook dinner for when MrDD comes home from work (should be slightly earlier than usual, they're planning to close early), get C bathed and to bed, then getting all the pressies put round the tree for C (already sorted out into Santa presents and those from us by colour of wrapping paper), and then collapse and watch a bit of TV before going to bed.

We are going to visit some family this morning then going into town to look at a tv for our bedroom, might have tea out then head back home to get the boys to bed

We're around - need to make some mince pies, make a table centre with the holly I picked yesterday, hoover downstairs and my mum is coming to collect the christmas pudding for tomorrow. A few other small jobs, Joshua has to write some cards too.
But right now I'm eating a big fry up and on here, so not putting things off at all...

Hope your morning goes quickly Deedee.
We are just about to have a walk into town for a couple of bits. I'm not attempting to take the car anywhere near the town because it will be ridiculous. At 11.30 J will be getting his Christmas phone call from Mickey Mouse so we need to be back for that.
This afternoon we are going to watch Elf. Then around 3pm we are meeting friends in the pub for a couple of hours.
Is C excited Deedee? J is proper hyper.

I'm working this morning too Deedee (I use the term loosly given I'm on here!). The christmas eve box sounds so lovey, do you do that every year for C? I need to nip to sainsburys later just for a couple of quick things then got a final bit of wrapping to do and that's me.

yoyo - don't envy you going into town this afternoon, good luck!
Margot - fry up sounds lovely, mmm! I always feel so guilty when I read about all the things others do like making table centres, I'm so not crafty!
SW - I love Elf, my favourite Christmas film - might have to put that on this afternoon If you miss the phone call, they leave a message, then you can listen to it over and over again - that's what happened to us. Yes, C is excited, although when one of the ladies at pre-school asked him who was coming this tonight, he said all sorts of names and forgot about Santa
MissDD - First year I've done it, copied from a load of the other girls on here, and seeing pics of some of theirs they posted yesterday it's no where near as good! Such a lovely idea. I'm not really working much either, only got a few bits I need to do, and hardly any one in to hassle me with other work!

Im finishing the housework, then going to my Mums. My nephews and niece are going round, then I need to bring my boys presents home, as they are all stored at my Mums house.
It's my H's Birthday today, so I guess i'd best spend some time with him too...

AK - guess you should probably spend some time with your H, yes!
SM - Arghhhh!! Good luck!
