Well I'm pleased to announce that after our first dancing lesson our feet are still intact, and more importantly so is our marriage. And I can rather proudly say we can now waltz albeit in a straight line backwards and forwards. How to turn and move around the dance floor comes next week. We were the first to arrive and the teacher said the class was very small but even so she was a bit surprised when nobody else turned up. She was excellent though, very patient and down to earth and we had our own private lesson. We are definitely going back next week.
It's been a bit of a nothing day today. I had to pop into Middleton and picked up a couple of things for Christmas. Two apple and cinnamon candles and 2 Christmas tree ornaments for Amy and Thomas which are filled with chocolate coins.
And just in case we forget, I also picked this up.
I'm going to have to get my brain into gear soon for Christmas. I'm even struggling to come up with ideas for stocking fillers this year. All I can think of at the moment is another Diary of a Minecraft Zombie book for Thomas and a Lush Bath bomb for Amy. I'm much more organised on the food front and will be writing up my menu over the weekend. Not that we buy much of anything different to be honest. A couple of cheeses, a starter for Christmas lunch and a home made trifle seem to be our biggest treats.
I'm cracking on with the jigsaw. The border is done and I've got my little piles ready to work on. This is the puzzle with the picture. It remains to be seen how I'll get on with the picture-less puzzle.
I collected Thomas from school and managed to avoid one of the many downpours of the day. I don't mind a couple of rainy days, sometimes it's nice to have an excuse to cosy up inside, but I'm getting fed up of it now. Anyway, I picked up a Friday treat for him while I was shopping. The tasteless cakes he loves so much and can eat one after the other if I let him.
Amy is out again tonight, staying over at her friends. They're off to the Trafford Centre tomorrow to do some shopping. Which means I get the bathroom all to myself, so I'll be having a long soak with a new book.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
