Christmas has finally made it to my blog – at least two weeks after everyone else. Although we still don’t have a Christmas tree, which is perfectly normal for us for this time of year and totally my choice.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 340 – Sunday 6th December – we went to the Christmas tree festival at our local church. We won third prize in the raffle (a hamper) – I’ve never seen the kids run so fast as they did to pick up our prize!
Day 341 – Monday 7th December – it was sunny and 14 degrees! Although of course it had gone dark before I thought to actually take a photo of the lovely blue sky. So this is the picture from my daughter’s advent calendar – she didn’t like it, but I thought it was quite funny.
Day 342 – Tuesday 8th December – I took my son to hospital for a check-up for his peanut allergy.
Day 343 – Wednesday 9th December – I love giving Christmas cards to my husband and kids and, yes, I do expect to receive them in return. My husband learned to his peril last year how important it is to give me Christmas cards! I was very happy with this lovely one from my daughter.
Day 344 – Thursday 10th December – I tackled the wrapping! I expected to get about half of it done, but managed to do the whole lot between lunch and the school run. I was feeling very proud of myself!
Day 345 – Friday 11th December – we posted our Christmas cards! Taking a photo of my daughter posting them is a bit of a tradition of mine, although she wasn’t particularly pleased with me for taking this picture.
Day 346 – Saturday 12th December – we get to watch the panto again later today. I can’t wait!
