Baby Roman was admitted to hospital over the weekend with a staph infection. He's on fluids, antibiotics and oxygen. They're also waiting for the results of some blood tests to see exactly what the infection is. Bless him, he's only 4 weeks old. I was at Mum's this morning when my niece text her, so I had a quick 'chat' with her. The antibiotics finish on Christmas Eve so we're all hoping he will be home for his first Christmas. I'm sure he'll be fine but it's a worrying time for his mum and dad.
I sorted through all the presents today and put them in 'piles' in the wardrobe. I've got piles for Secret Santa, Stocking Fillers, Christmas presents for Amy and Thomas, Christmas presents from everybody for Joan and our Christmas presents for everybody else. The only thing I couldn't find were Amy's boots. I pulled every flipping present out to see if they'd been pushed to the back of the wardrobe, only to remember later on that I'd hidden them in Thomas' wardrobe. What a pain! There are presents rammed into every space. Not because we've gone overboard but because the wardrobe is full of stuff anyway. We really need to go through it after Christmas.
I went to Sainsburys to buy bread, because the turkey is where the bread usually is in the freezer and picked up a half price table covering while I was there. I also bought some stamps for 2 forgotten Christmas cards that needed posting. I've no idea what the cut off date for posting was but they'll get there eventually.
And I was going to marzipan the cake but forgot to get the jam while I was out, so that will have to be done tomorrow now. I did remember the Buck's Fizz though. My priorities are definitely all wrong haha! At only 4% I can handle a glass or two of this while I'm cooking lunch. I don't hit the 'hard' stuff until the evening when I'm sat down and there's nothing else to do.
And that's it really. As my Santa countdown board tells me, only 4 more sleeps to go.
