Me and H have been talking about plans today and I'm getting all excited.
E is dancing in panto a couple of times a week starting from the end of November so we have to work around her but this is what we have planned so far:
17th - Taking J to panto (E dancing in it)
19th - I finish work, H finishes a couple of days earlier.
20th - kids finish school and E is in panto.
21st - H taking J to the match, I'm taking E ice skating then we are going to the kids favourite Indian buffet restaurant on the night.
23rd - BIL and his family are coming over at tea time to give the kids their presents, give the kids their tea and have a few drinks.
24th - No plans as yet, we usually meet up with loads of friends in a pub for a few drinks before home for no later than 6 for the usual Christmas Eve routine.
25th - Usual Christmas Day, open presents, go to PIL, over to my parents then home after Christmas dinner.
26th - No plans as yet, probably just a family day.
28th - Afternoon/Night out with friends and seeing a friend who's over from Singapore who we haven't seen for ages.
31st - No plans as yet.
1st - We might have a NYD party.
It's my birthday on the 9th so me and H will probably have a night out on the 7th or 8th.

I don't really have set plans, I just wing it.
I have no idea when H finishes work, or when C finishes school.
Rough plans involve Christmas food shopping (yummy snack stuff rather than for dinner, we go to my Mums), taking J to see Santa, seeing C's Christmas play at school, erm...
C's birthday is 2nd Dec, and I don't even know what we're doing for it. He decided he didn't want a party (not cool, when you're 10, apparently...)

Now I wish I wasn't working and had exciting things planned! Jealous!!

I have nothing planned! I think I'm in denial about Christmas altogether as haven't started Christmas shopping yet lol. There'll be the usual playgroup/school parties and visits to see Santa but not got any dates for anything yet!
