I'll try to add something Christmassy every day but I expect my daily ramblings will be mostly about the usual things that go on here, warts and all. And Christopher Elf is certainly one of those warts at the moment. We woke up this morning to find him bungee jumping into the kitchen sink. Of course Thomas couldn't resist pulling the elastics to make him bounce and of course the pulls became harder and harder until the drawing pin came out of the ceiling and he ended up falling into the water. He's on the radiator drying out at the moment. Serves him right.
Yesterday I cleared out some things in the Xbox room to make way for what's coming, although thankfully this year it's not too much. I took this lot down to the charity shop this morning. It might come in useful for somebody at this time of year.
While I was there I replenished our completely depleted chocolate stash. Hopefully the quality street caramels will mean more chewing and less consumption goes on this week.
Thomas is on his last week of school countdown. Reading a couple of blogs he seems to be finishing early, but I bet the teachers would rather have the time before than after so they can get organised, especially if they have children. At the other end of the spectrum Amy doesn't finish until 22nd December which seems really late. Think cheeky Christopher Elf is rubbing off on him!
I'm off out with my friends tonight for our 'Christmas Do'. We usually go when they've finished work but today is the only time that suits us all. It's an early start at 4.30pm so I'll be off to get ready in a while.
I'll be back tomorrow - with Sienna, although she's only coming for the day while Sophie gets some work done in the house. I'm really looking forward to having her. She's coming at 10.30am and we'll take her home at 7pm. Compared to how long she usually stays it'll be a doddle.
See you then.
Edited to add - no idea where I'm up to with these days. Should I have started at the 1st Day of Christmas or should I be working my way from 14 to 1. It's a conundrum for me.
