I am back at work and not in the work mode at all!
06/12/2012 at 09:25
My day off today, I'm currently trying to get the squiggly thing dressed so we can go out shortly!
We have a couple of classes we're going to with a friend and her LO (a sports one, then singing), and I need to go to the shops so will have to drag him along there. I'm hoping bribery of sweets or chocolate will work!
MrDD's going to be late home tonight (his new website goes live today, finally, only about 2 months late!! Hopefully they'll actually get some of the Christmas trade through it) so solo bedtime and quiet night in front of the TV once he has got home.

I'm off to town in a bit to finish my Christmas shopping and do a few other bits, it's going to be packed so think we might stop off midway for a cup of tea and cake! Then it's home for some housework before collecting Joshua from school.

I've got to go back in to town because the stupid woman in new look left the security tag on a dress I bought.
It's a birthday present for today so I have to go. Annoyed I have to fight for a parking space, get Evie all out of the car in this freezing weather just to take a bloody tag off!

Going to C's school to make Christmas decorations, then I need to finish some bracelets for the Christmas fayre tomorrow.

Sounds good DeeDee and Margot. Trickers, not so good. Oh LL, how annoying, can you take to Tesco or somewhere with easy car parking and your receipt?
E_R, you are so crafty

Well it's Thursday so it must be ballet...
R currently sleeping and H listening to Abba on her Innotab (bless her, I think she might have inherited my taste in dodgy cheesy music)
After ballet we are braving Mothercare to get feet measured (sale!) and then after lunch and R's second nap we are supposed to be hosting Beyond Bumps and Babies so we'll prob pootle along there at some point for a hot chocolate and cake.
Oh, and then H is out at ANOTHER work xmas party so it's double solo bedtime for me, then an evening of Love Actually and present wrapping (one of my fave festive traditions)

E was at nursery this morning so I went to meet up with a friend and spent 2 hours cuddling her new baby! His due date is tomorrow but he's 4 weeks old already, still so teeny!! Thank goodness I'm pregnant as I want one! Have just had lunch and put E to bed for an hour before we go shopping. Friends and family back home have been so generous this year and as they won't see us for Christmas, have given us money to buy E presents and get some things for the baby. I intend to spend it all and spoil my babies rotten this year! H thinks we should put it aside and use it throughout next year in case we actually 'need' things but that's just sensible and silly!

I'm at work, avoiding the pile of things I need to do. I need to make a start on my Christmas food shopping list. I also need to look for curtains for my lounge play area where L's toys are as it's so cold not having anything up.

I need to finish Christmas shopping, we don't need much food, but want to get some lagers etc in. What colour of curtains are you looking for?
06/12/2012 at 10:25
That is what I'm not sure about Fi. We have brown in the front area of the room but red walls. The back area is cream walls so was thinking maybe red. I need some voile for a smaller window there too.
I need to buy everything! Thankfully I have £100 on an Asda card plus 3 of those £5 off vouchers. I can't buy drinks too soon mind as we'd drink them all.

I know, I am like that about drink that I like, so if I get stuff that I don't like, I won't drink it.
Red sounds nice, I have red curtains.
Have you ordered your meat?
06/12/2012 at 10:36
Why on earth would you buy drink you don't like?
I'm not sure if it would look odd though - the room is a through lounge so 2 different coloured curtains at either end might be weird....
I've not done a thing to do with food yet. I need to go Costco as I've left it too late for a butcher now.

Ha, for people visiting silly I am the hostess with the mostess.

I have entertained the girls this morning. Went to the post office. Dropped Z off at nursery, come home, put K to bed... and I have the afternoon to myself, with nothing to do!!! I can't do any work as I am waiting for a delivery so I just get to sit down, in a tidy room, watch Christmas TV, write cards and Hitch. WooHoo!!!
