I need a list on here so I can refer to it and at least think about stuff when I can't move because I'm pinned down by the baby fgrin

So in the Dissing household as of today we have:

sent cards to most people on the posting list

sent parcel to my sister and SIL

wrapped quite a few presents, children/baby allowing!

bought exactly ZERO special food (I hate food shopping)

obsessed about house buying, again, which is hardly relevant to the season

and wondered about going in Currys and decided not to as it was a bit, erm, busy.

Pathetic, non?

Feel free to add your own personal To Do list and update as you go.

I have a vague notion of what's left to do, writing it all down will probably scare me.

Make token gifts for DH's family (6 maybe 7 adults, 1 teen, 2 kids).
Wrap all the presents (and just hope they all arrive before the 25th).
Make and send presents for best friend and her DH who live in a different country (I don't think I've ever managed to get these to her on time)
Figure out what we're actually eating on Christmas Day.
Make mince pies and Christmas pudding.
Tidy the house and garden.
Finish making DS's minecraft cushion.
Find a big enough festive table cloth.
Buy festive napkins.
Make a centre piece for the table.

I won't be doing any of this until Saturday as I'm too busy with work until then.

I've done quite a bit since the last 'to do' thread but still have to:-

Hand out last of the Christmas cards
Buy 2 x gift vouchers (money in a separate section in wallet just physically have to do it and I keep walking past the shops in question!)
Pack for weekend away visiting inlaws and seeing Santa etc (Make sure clothes are all washed that I want to take too hahaha!)
Big food shop Friday morning, going to parents for Christmas day and boxing day so its just to get extra nice things in for us and decide what to have for Christmas Eve tea
Present swap with friends, the plan is to meet them after said big food shop
Sit through Christmas carol mass at school - oh crap just realised that's Friday too!
Take some of the Christmas craft things away with us so the little ones get to do some of them and its not all done on Christmas Eve
Pray dd2 gets over snotty cold and that dd1 doesn't catch it (or me!)
Drop off ballet teacher gift - yep Friday too
Then relax and enjoy Christmas Eve, have everything ready for that except food and look forward to the madness of Christmas Day!
Oh yes and I suppose I should hoover and polish everywhere, have done my big blitz and de-clutter so its just the normal flutters and dust so can do that when get back Monday night
