EEK! It's here! December is here! And the grin smile [frgin]

Just a quick stop by as I must dash again.

Chesty, enjoy your week off!

Mole, sorry to hear about the probs. Keep smiling, almost Christmas grin

What, yay for the arrival of the packages.

Must go, but will be back soon.

Oooh, Santa smileys! smile smile smile

Festive socks arrived today, in the St.Nick of time. Hurray. Advent box mysteriously arrived at the front door. DS was excited to see the box, but wasn't overly taken with the contents once he spotted the chocolate coins! smile
He has his little festive outfit on and looks sooooo adorable.

Hurrah! They're here.

23 sleeps.......

Birthday night out last night and my feet are still aching! Not too much of a hangover, so may venture to the cinema today.
whatwould birthdays not until Thursday.

mole I really enjoyed the hunger games film. May have to invest in the books, will wait and see if Santa brings me a kindle wink
How is Ds now? Eating any?

Tommorow is Christmas tree day! Need to do a big tidy/dust first.....booo!
I sooo want a beautiful tree like on the films but mine always looks bare somehow. <<whispers>> am going to try some tinsel.
Have also started on the Christmas candles. Blackberry and fig is a firm favourite so far.

When are you all putting trees up?

MamaPizza Germany Sun 02-Dec-12 21:08:50

Ooooh, we want Christmas tree pics! Mine will be up next week, can't wait grin

Was it your birthday then? Sorry if I missed it. Happy birthday smile

I seriously need another month to prepare!

grin
Our small tree is up, but it looks so tiny, (3ft), and I think we will get a big one. It was fine when I lived on my own in my little London flat, but looks a bit titchy in a family home. I'd like a big artificial one, I just think they make them so well these days, they look fuller than the real ones. But I haven't seen any nice artificial ones here, and JL don't ship their trees over. Boo. So looking for a real one, DH likes real ones anyway. I'm also thinking of the cost of a real one bought every year over the years. But then, we are trying to live minimally, as we'd like to move a lot, so storing a big fake tree maybe isn't ideal. What to do!

Mama, you've had all year! smile
Chesty, glad you are enjoying your birthday celebrations.

Oh yes, you are a Nikolaus birthday. Sorry, just sooo tired at the moment. Only just got home, trying to catch up and then more work to do. Boo sad

ChestyNutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire Mon 03-Dec-12 23:52:43

Thats not good! I have spent the evening longing on the sofa looking at all the pretty lights grin

I started a 22 sleeps thread today, you all didn't find me sad

Molepomandmistletoe Wed 05-Dec-12 16:35:08

I've got some of my decorations up. I couldn't wait any longer and decided it would be my reward for spending the morning dragging them out from under the stairs.

ISawMamaPizzaKissingSantaClaus Wed 05-Dec-12 20:09:46

Woohoo to Christmas decs. I so can't wait for this weekend. My classroom is looking fab now, am compensating my trashy side there. Kids love it grin

ChestyNut Tue 01-Jan-13 23:32:20

I was debating starting one earlier but wasn't sure where you'd all gone!

LentilAsAnything Tue 01-Jan-13 23:54:38

Do it! I'm in!

LentilAsAnything Tue 01-Jan-13 23:59:34

Just found this thread: www.mumsnet.com/Talk/Christmas/1644089-so-its-only so have joined there! Will also join yours if you do a separate one though!

On NYE I bought my tin!
(I buy a money tin every New Year to save £2 coins)
Has to be one of the tins you open with a can opener -a jar would be pilfered.
I aim to put £4 a week in.Decembers one had £188 so we each got £47 to buy a "Jar Present".
