Oh and a couple of DVDs and a family board game.
Also need to get DCs to choose pressies they are giving to us/each other.

We've done most of the shopping well in advance but then sort of stopped!

Still need:
An outfit for DS (got DD's already)
New jammies for me and DH (already got the DCs')
Socks and vests for DCs' stockings
Alarm clock for my mum
Bletchley Park ticket gift set for Turing fan DH (but might save that for his birthday next month)
Couple more pressies for each DSC (got a few ideas so shouldn't be too hard)

It's a sign of a month of ill babies that kept being kept off nursery and too much work which has needed catching up on in the evenings!

I am looking on it as A Nice Roast Dinner.
Some people will come, we will cook some meat. We have just over a week off, shops will open for most of that time, travel plans will likely have to change due to weather/ill babies anyhow, so there's no point in sweating the details.

Should actually do some shopping though before I run out of delivery dates!

Twelvelegged I'm damn sure our complete lack of preparedness is actually a sign of our maverick seat-of-the-pants devil-may-care inner selves. Honest. Or something like that.

gulps wine gratefully

I feel good. We've done everything! I have ordered the food online so slot is booked, all gifts are bought. Just need to wrap them now.. gah.

Oh man sooooo much

Hoping to make a giant raid on town on Saturday anad get the bulk of it - yy I know, shop online blah blah, but I find at Christmas nothing beats a look in Home Bargains and Wilkos for stocking essentials.

Need to get DD's camera, books for a couple of folk, a diary, calendar for Ds2, chocolate for him too, pants and socks etc etc.

Also need to make sure that other folk know what to get the DCs esp DS2 as if it is the wrong skateboard it will be a major disaster...

Haven't wrapped a thing. Hmmm must get on with that actually. At least I have written all my cards (not very many this year). I'm in a new job and busier than ever before in my life as my ironing pile attests <sigh>

How have so many of you got so much food??? I have a tin of celebrations on offer in asda, ditto M&S biccies and that's all!

Oh yes I have made the cake.

Passes wine to KOTK. We can be in the club.

A CD for SIL. A dressing gown for MIL. A magic wine bottle holder for FIL.

A bouncy chair for DD2 and her special xmas dress.

A cinderella doll, skipping rope, yoyo, money box and a few other bits for DD1.

A present for DP from the DDs.

Xmas food. Batteries.

Thats about it.

KOTK Thu 06-Dec-12 23:17:20

Wait rose delivery have some lovely hampers with money off. There's one which has wine, crisps, sweets in three black and white boxes in a stack, it's reduced from £60 to £30 and free delivery from £30. How about that and a DVD?

pigleychez Thu 06-Dec-12 23:00:03

I just need :

A choc santa or similar to poke out the top of the girls stockings.

Something for my mum. - She's hinting at Gel nail kit.

Something for my B/Sil - Mid 30's. Want, need, room for nothing so something consumable or doable. Budget of up to £40. Any ideas anyone!!??

rhondajean Thu 06-Dec-12 22:50:09

Everything! I've got a few stocking fillers, made the cake and pudding, but that's it. It'll happen though.
