Amy got her GCSE mock results today. A*'s, A's and B's, but the grade we were all most thrilled about was her maths, where she managed to hit that all important C. It's definitely given her a confidence boost.
I picked up a few sparkly stars in Bury for over the Nativity scene and to add a bit of colour to a plain wall. I can't find the paper ones I made and my crafting skills weren't up to making any so I bought some from the £1 shop and added a 'special' silver star.
And I found these in Wilko. One of the Christmas Eve games I do is based on the TV programme Catch Phrase or as we say to Thomas "say what you see". I'll use these and print some picture ones from the computer as well. It took me about 1 minute to get this, Mark is rubbish at the game and after 5 minutes walked away in a huff. I'll print the answer at the bottom for those who want to have a go.
I just need 3 or 4 stocking fillers for Thomas and Christmas is pretty much done and dusted I think. Actually, I'm sat here mentally running through everybody and I'm definitely done. That's capital D, capital O, capital N, capital E. DONE.
All I need to do now is sort the food list out but that's the easy part as we don't really go over the top.
Thomas came home from Robinwood having had a fantastic time. He took part in everything, abseiling, canoeing, zip wire, trapeze, you name it he did it. The only thing he didn't like was the 'dungeon of doom' but from what he's described it doesn't surprise me. He doesn't like the dark and is sensitive to certain noises. One of the things he was most proud of was drinking a cup of hot chocolate!
I know he's definitely changed his tracksuit bottoms while he's been away, but I'm not sure about anything else as it was still all packed neatly in the case. I'll have to wash everything though because he'd dumped 2 big sopping wet dirty towels on top of everything and even the stuff at the bottom was damp.
The shower gel hasn't been opened and his toothbrush is dry so although he tells me he's had a shower he must have just stood under the water.
Who cares though. He had a great time and that's the main thing.
He's definitely having a good scrub tonight though!
And the answer, although I'm sure all you clever people got it, is "space invaders".
