Its oh so quiet here - all 3 men are watching/dozing in front of the first 'festive' Top Gear so I've a whole hour to myself. I should be finishing more tiddly teddies which are a silly pressie for the boys stockings but instead I'm having a wander around blogland. I did manage to finish the four I needed to go onto family pressies which have been delivered;
Last nights sisters get-together was great fun - very silly, lots to drink and loads of lovely pressies exchanged and opened!! I was thoroughly spoilt and shall share some pictures with you sometime over the holidays.
Big son went off on a 24 hour christmas Explorer Scout get-together. They prepared and cooked a massive 4 course dinner, had a party with lots of silly games and then slept over and had a big breakfast before arriving home here late morning. Am hoping to see some photos soon - want to see him with the entire troop balanced on his lap during what sounded like a riotous game of musical chairs!!
Over the weekend we finally put up our christmas decorations. We opted this year for our smaller tree which meant there were rather more decorations than branches - lots were left off (just baubles that are normally used as fillers) - we made sure that every handmade and special decoration found a space - the whole effect is unco-ordinated, colourful and very Vicki :)
I left the little son to decorate the staircase - he went mad with tinsel and my collection of stockings;
I've noticed that my hall dresser has taken on a patriotic theme;
As its now the school holidays it means that afternoon mugs of hot chocolate, have turned into mugs of snowman soup! Hot chocolate, squirty cream, chocolate chips, marshmallows - all stirred with a candy cane!!
I think that this will be my last post until after christmas - I really do have rather a lot to do over the next few days. So I shall wish all of my lovely blogging friends and followers .................
A Very Merry Christmas
I hope Santa brings you all something wonderful and you have a great time whatever you are doing :)
Oh sort of good news - my FIL is out of hospital and is now in a nursing home for a few weeks. He's much happier now he's there and hopefully will soon be well enough to come home properly.
