Im all done shopping wise, although need to get some drinks in for the visitors on boxing day. Majority of pressies are wrapped although a few more to go. Need to finish cleaning the house. Aiming to be all done by tommorrow night though, as am busy for most of monday.

My revised to-do list:
I have another batch of fudge to make, cinder toffee, oat cake rounds and apple and cinnamon cakes to make. Then I have to pack up the hampers. Most of this will be done Christmas Eve.
I need to try and keep the house tidy so I don't have a mammoth cleaning session to do - If it does get messy, then H will have to do it or we won't let anyone in.
I might send H to the car wash tomorrow or Monday as well whilst I wash the car seat covers.

Well I've just sat down!! Done everything on my list finally apart from hoovering upstairs but it didn't really need doing too much and ran out of time. Still got to bring presents down and do stockings because my 5 year old isn't asleep yet. I'm going to have a shower and wash hair in a min. I even did all my ironing today too, such a nice feeling to have no housework for a few days!! (apart from usual tidying up after 3 kids lol. Merry Christmas!
