I am finally having a bit of post Christmas blues, it's finally all over hmm. And don't even mention New Year, it is a total non event.

On the plus side our family got a very special present on Christmas morning - a new baby nephew!

Congratulation Buzz

Ah, you've got a bit of a problem with premature congratulation there Rabid
Fnarr Fnarr

But now, I can officially say

"Happy New Year".
Cos it is New Year.

So, how long now till I can start playing FairyTale of New York without looking like a dipstick?

Yay! Love Christmas. I have started a debrief document on my laptop of things that worked well and things that didn't in 2012 so I can consult it and improve this year grin A countdown will help keep me focused.

Ooh, 358 days! I am already looking forward to it!

I've done the same as snazzy.

Christmas planning is all year round here. It's DS's birthday in 9 days so it's temporarily suspended for that but I might just have a wee look at the reduced Christmas stuff while I'm out buying presents for him.

fuzzpig Wed 02-Jan-13 09:04:15

I'm trying to be more organised too. In the last few years all my advanced prep has been focused on presents. But, while I still want to shop in advance to save money/avoid crowded mall, I've also realised that by focusing entirely on presents I have neglected the other magical elements of Xmas that I would really rather focus on and give my DCs memories of!

buzzgirly Wed 02-Jan-13 12:52:05

Today I have started this years Christmas present list, otherwise I will forget and I can keep my eye out for offers.

I want to put a reminder on here for myself for next year - do not jam in so many activities for dd the week before Xmas. The poor wee thing was knackered!

Following on from my post of December 12th 2012 when my heating broke....I now have heat again.
As you were.

shock have you had no heating for over 3 weeks Rabid?

I'd be burning your LandLord at the stake (plenty of heat there)

That's horrendous angry

No heating for Xmas? shock You poor things.

buzzgirly Fri 04-Jan-13 07:44:49

Rabid that's terrible you had to wait so long.

Well dd is still in Christmas spirit, whenever someone leaves the house she is still shouting "merry Christmas"
