I did some Christmas shopping in Bury today. I bought some things for a charity in Manchester that I've donated to in the past. Families have to be referred to the mission and one present can be chosen for any child under 13. In addition to the present they can also pick a couple of books. The donated presents have to be new but the books can be second hand as long as they are in good condition. Anyway, this is what I bought. I have a couple more toys I want to add to the pile and some books that Thomas and Amy have finished with and then it can all be dropped off.
The kitchen fitters have pretty much done their thing at Number 14 and we are just waiting for the tiler to come in.
And I've had to cancel our first dancing lesson. It never entered my head that it would clash with Bonfire Night. Mark looked a tad too relieved for my liking, but we are definitely going next week.
