I must have had sixth sense when I was buying the dungaree set yesterday because my niece went into labour and baby was born just before 11pm last night. As of me posting this, he still has no name. Anyway, she went into hospital, had him and was home again all within 6 hours. Coincidentally he shares the same birthday with his cousin (her sisters little boy), who was 5 yesterday.
I'm getting on with my Christmas shopping. Amy has given me a list which comprises of a nightshirt, smellies, Lush bathbombs, make-up, books and combat boots. Everything on the list with be a 'surprise' apart from the boots which she'll have to choose and try on. Then they'll get sent to Father Christmas:) Nightshirts aren't very easy to come across but I found this one in BHS which she'll like as she's into checks at the moment, plus a make-up set.
It's ages since I've done any sewing and I had the urge to make some Christmas cushion covers, just to add a bit of colour to the room. I bought the material off the market and I'll be making envelope covers which are easy enough to do.
Thomas brought home a shoebox from school for the Rotary Club and I bought a few bits to go in it while I was in Bury. As well as doing the box we donate to the Salvation Army and either do a food or toy drop off to a local charity. I thank my lucky stars every year that we're in a position to be able to do this.
When the tenants said they wanted to drop some stuff off yesterday I imagined a few boxes of pots and pans. I went up last night and they've set the house up. The suite, dining table, lamps, ornaments, photos and wardrobes are all in place just waiting for them to officially move in. I have to say it looks lovely and they're so excited they've asked if we can bring the signing date forward to this weekend which is fine by us.
And finally, this is just for Rachel. Thomas went to lego therapy today and asked his teacher if he could bring these home so his mum could blog about them to her friend. I must admit I felt a moment of panic that he'd told the teacher what my blog was called and she was sat there scrolling through my life, but he said he didn't because he knows I don't want anybody I know to read it. Which I don't. Funny isn't it, apart from Mum I haven't told any friends or family about it and that's the way I like it. Anyway, Rachel, from Thomas with love :)
