ellie I couldn't believe the queues in Sainsbury's the Monday before Christmas. It was unbelievable! You'd think people could cope with the supermarket being shut for one day!

We have lots of yummy things for tonight - DH is going to make some sushi with smoked salmon, we have some prawns for a prawn cocktail, lots of cheese, ripe avocados for guacamole and lots of bread and crackers to have with oil and vinegar. Also picked up some of my favourite wine to enjoy because after the next few days (NYE, NYD and my birthday) I am eating clean (she says!).

Bloody firecrackers and bangs rocking our city now (only time people can set them off legally - more money than sense some people). though will be lovely to out at midnight and see the proper fireworks.

Have no idea what we're eating for dinner tomorrow. Will probably go round to ILs for coffee in morning, the collapse at home. Would like something packed with veg tomorrow so maybe a casserole.

JustGettingOnWithIt Tue 31-Dec-13 17:12:09

I have managed to be awake for a total of three hours so far today, listen to friend, remind ds that just because I'm too ill to work with him isn't a good reason for not doing it, but that's been it.
Can't even Mn as the pain in my eyes from looking at the screen is swiftly self limiting. Am really shocked it's possible to sleep this much. Going to try and stay awake to see in the new year but if I don't manage to stay awake blush; wishing a good 1014 to all.

feetheart Tue 31-Dec-13 17:23:22

Just - I really hope that 2014 is so much better for you and that the sleep that your body is finally forcing you to do revives you properly. Take care and keep sleeping smile
To all of you - thank you for being my Flying buddies over this year and the previous three years, for keeping me slightly on track, for keeping me company and for making me laugh. My house is still not perfect but housework is SO much more entertaining when I can share the ups and downs thankswinebrewcakefgrin

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all and I hope 2014 brings you what you want fsmile

Happy New Year all - here's hoping I can be more organised in the new year! grin

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Tue 31-Dec-13 18:48:44

I'm in Bitchy. DH is really under the weather. The DCs are intent on staying up. DH's friend is staying with us. I feel restless.

Anyway, we've had a good afternoon, took the DCs swimming, for the fun and floats session, some friends were there too so a great deal of playing and swimming while I chatted with the mum who is a friend of mine too.

If I don't make it back later:

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

I have seen a friend for coffee today
Been on a long family walk
Talked to my Dad on the phone

and incidentally my room is now TIDY yay hey! Okay a few boxes and piles round the edges, but the central aisle is tidy and hoovered grin

DH cooked supper (far too salty for my liking, that man loves stock cubes but still, dcs thought it very tasty and truth be told I have lost all interest in preparing meals atm...)

Made ds1 watch half of Twelfth Night on youtube, (poster homework) discussed it with him
Made Dh help ds1 tidy his room, (tears as ds1 is a hopeless tidier, and needs calming down whilst he is doing things he thinks he cannot do)
Dd had a friend round
Dd went round to a friend
Read ds2 half story of Achilles for his project hmm another poster
Made mincepie pastry (but no actual mincepies)
Drove ds1 to a distant park so that he could walk back, he was again relieved to be forced to take exercise

Everyone slept in till 11am today!!! Good ballast for a late night tonight.

saw friend in SNewingt*n
went to another friend's delightful party in SNewingt*n - lots of people with older teens imparting their wisdom - however I have the feeling my children are always going to be too uncool for Raves.

Today we managed to get out and go to Goathland which is where Hearbeat was filmed and the ststion was used in Harry Potter as it has a steam train that we went on. Brief sandwich in pub then home. Having a quiet NYE in with the family and DH sulking a bit as the TV remote has been wrestled off him!

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that 2014 is kind to all of us xx

BitchytheGreat Tue 31-Dec-13 21:53:52
