..... I went shopping at Lidl. I really wanted to make a point of sitting down this morning with my pastry and a cup of St Clements while I flicked through the Radio Times but it never happened because I had to sort something out for Amy. Never mind.
I bought a few Christmas goodies today. We don't go overboard on food but there are certain things I like to have at Christmas such as trifle and vol au vents. I love v-a-v and mushroom ones are my favourite.
I had to go out to the chemist and popped into Tesco to see if they had anything in the greenery department for the house. I've given up on finding holly and mistletoe but I did spot this which went into the basket along with some other winter twig things - can't think how else to describe them :)
Mum hasn't been well for nearly 2 weeks so I took her to the Doctors this afternoon. She has a chest infection and is on antibiotics, steroids and an inhaler. I'm sure the antibiotics will kick in and sort her out in no time and hopefully she'll be well by Christmas.
Thomas found a book at school yesterday on how to draw manga and the teacher let him bring it home. He spent ages at the table last night trying to perfect a face. I love how children become so engrossed in things they want to do.
It's been a very quiet day news wise so I thought I'd end with a couple of Christmassy photos.
Candles and holly.
Christmas twigs (I'm sure there's a better name but basically twigs is what they are).
More chocolate treats on the tree.
Oh and the book blurb especially for Rachel :)
