I really really hope DD falls asleep properly soon. She was fine going to bed (the onesie helped! And we took turns reading pages of the Grinch with nanny too fsmile) but then woke up and went all clingy. Any time we go near her door she pops up like a meerkat.

Everything else is ready but we need to do the stocking!

DD is still awake fhmm

Have had a lovely evening though. Morning was a bust due to my illness being particularly bad, but much improved later on. Had to cut out some plans due to the horrendous weather but still managed to receive the elf delivery - DCs so excited!

Just finishing watching White Christmas before we trundle off to bed. I get weepy at the end. My parents are in their 60s and have never seen it fshock

It's Christmas Eve!! My favourite day of the year! fsmilefsmile

So much to do today. Make soup, prep veg, I was going to cook turkey today but it's still frozen!

Dd and I are going to make cookies for Santa and decorate the glass jars for the landing strip.

We are going on a walk with dcs and neighbours later in the woods behind our house. The plan is that the kids will find snowman soup which I made up last night hanging from the trees, but the weather is wild here so not sure if it will work out!!

I will report back later - hope everyone has a good day!


50shadesofknackered Tue 24-Dec-13 06:33:29

ITS CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!! fgrin fgrin fgrin
Going to dm's this morning then home at lunch time. Making mince pies later, then watching Christmas film/tv, tracking Santa, have a Chinese takeaway for tea, bath, New pj's and kids leave out mince pie, carrots etc.then off to bed. Hopefully dh and I can relax in front of tv with disgusting amounts of champagne before putting the presents out. Oooo I'm very excited!!

I did my last shopping today and I'm done!! fsmile

What's your plans for tomorrow?

nickdrakeslovechild Mon 23-Dec-13 11:47:26

Thank youfsmile my LO was truly spoilt thanks to Reastie and her amazing bargain threads. Very tired, but looking forward to Christas day now. The rest of the family arrive later today then a small shop locally for a few fresh things then we are all done here. Probably wont be popping back so Happy Christmas and see you in a few days for next years count down fgrin

NowBringUsSomeFuzzpiggyPudding Mon 23-Dec-13 08:59:05

Woohoo not long now!

I really need to get up as our final tesco shop should be arriving in the next hour or so. Lots of fresh stuff and far too many desserts I'm lying, there's no such thing as too many desserts

Xmas #1 yesterday was fab, played loads of games and also went for a nice walk in the dark to look at inflatable snowmen Xmas lights in the neighbourhood.

Got a bit more wrapping to do but nothing major. DH got called in to work today - a total PITA but hey, we get to keep the Soda Stream he's demonstrating?! Bribery much? grin

Thankfully DSD is staying another night to babysit as I have the late shift.

50shadesofknackered Mon 23-Dec-13 06:12:57

Wrapping finished except for 2.little ones thank God! I didn't think it would ever end. Upstairs cleaned (again) and bedcovers changed. Just going to clean downstairs (again) do some last minute washing, take dd1 to Dr with her cough, then have a late shift fsad I'm popping to Tesco tonight after work for the fresh stuff, I figure it should be quiet at 10pm. Then just christmassy stuff tomorrow,yay!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 23-Dec-13 00:08:41


Two days to go.
Are we all ready?
Didn't think so.

I need to get to bed now, going to brave Waitrose tomorrow (mad) to get the last minute things.

It'll all pull together at the final furlong I'm sure fwink

Happy 2nd Birthday to Babynickdrake


NowBringUsSomeFuzzpiggyPudding Sun 22-Dec-13 08:54:40

Happy birthday mininick!

We are having Xmas #1 today - DSDs are already here, DSS arriving later so we can exchange pressies, then his GF is joining us for a roast dinner and, after the little ones are asleep, a quiz that DH and DSD2 have been working on for weeks! They've (well DSD has, since DH is clueless about such things) put it together on PowerPoint and they'll be using a cable to put it on the TV screen. I can't wait! We've agreed it'll be a new tradition but we will take turns to be quizmaster. So I will be doing it next year fgrin

Determined to do some baking this morning with DD. Sooo sleepy though. Haven't got out of bed yet fblush

cheesypastaplease Sun 22-Dec-13 07:45:13

I have now got all my Christmas food apart from goose fat, I got it all in local shops do managed to avoid Tesco - which looked chocca all day. Wrapped last of presents last night so it's all done - well ds's bike needs building but I'll leave that to dh.

Happy birthday nicks dc!

I will definitely attempt chocolate log today!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 22-Dec-13 00:05:24


My DD is niggling me for a pair of Emu boots (I'm thinking of taking her to TKMaxx for a look at Bearpaw or similar)

Then I need to get my last minute fresh food .
DS presents
Some brandy for DH

And I'll be finished


Then have to clean round and do some naice cooking.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sat 21-Dec-13 20:30:49

We went to Larndan today fgrin

Parked at the Underground (spaces, yes ) only £2 all day.

Got to Oxford Circus- it was tipping down. Luckily I'd check the forecast and we were all waterproofed but every 2nd person had a brolley, I got poked in the head so often, I'm a colander hmm

The shops were really Un- Christmasey. A few had music. The lights were on but looked much better when it got dark.
But most people were mooching round with meh faces.

Then we went to Kew Gardens Illuminated Walk (I'd booked it weeks ago, so of course it had to rain today )

It was ok. I reckon they could've had more Christmas lights.
It was busy but plenty of space to follow the trail.

Taking DD shopping tomorrow must be bonkers I need to get DS presents.
Bad Mother emoticon, but the little git just shrugs when I ask him what he wants.

nickdrakeslovechild Sat 21-Dec-13 19:53:50

I am all finished and wrapped, done the big food shop so ready to go. Got my LO 2nd birthday tomorrow then bring on the big day. I am so excited I could pop!

cheesypastaplease Sat 21-Dec-13 07:51:37

50s I've got to clean the house, but putting that off as long as possible! Loads to do with delivering presents and visiting relatives, it will be a busy weekend!

50shadesofknackered Sat 21-Dec-13 06:43:45

Going food shopping this morning and cleaning bathroom (again) before I go to work at 12, then wrapping presents when I get home tonight (the wrapping is never ending)!!!! I've got no time for work ! I have so much to do! (Mainly wrapping)

cheesypastaplease Sat 21-Dec-13 06:31:11


fuzz that sounds perfect!!

We are going to local shops today to get a couple of presents. Then I'm going to "attempt" to make a chocolate log!

NowBringUsSomeFuzzpiggyPudding Fri 20-Dec-13 18:44:28

The tree is up! All haphazardly decorated fgrin

It was lovely, DSD is here too and as I played carols on the piano everyone was singing along! We are living the dream people fgrin

There was some lalalaing from the others as they're all heathens they forgot the words so next year I'll be printing out lyric sheets!

I couldn't find the present DD wanted to get DS so have had my last twitch on amazon. We have an Amazon locker at work so I can pick it up before my last shift on Monday evening!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 20-Dec-13 14:39:30

I'm going upstairs to wrap the presents......................I might be some time fhmm

But if I do this now, then I have an excuse to go out later and have a good old Twitch in M&S, because my dear DC had The Face when I wanted to go last week.

I've made soup.
I've bought beer.

I can leave DH to it


cheesypastaplease Fri 20-Dec-13 06:06:27

Dd finishes school today, I finished work on Wednesday. So lots of baking, watching films and exploring the woods for the elves to follow!!
