I loved this thread last time someone did it and thought it would be nice to do a Christmassy one.

DDs are watching a film. DH is watching a documentary type thing on the PC (I am sure there is only one narrator for all of these, or maybe they take droney voice lessons). I am MNing in my PJs. DDs friend has just texted to say she is coming round with DDs present so I really must get off my arse and have a shower as friends Mum will probably show up too and the house is a pigsty.

Sinkingfeeling Fri 24-Dec-10 11:53:39

No idea - I'm at work! Have emailed a list of festive jobs for dh and the dc to do though grin

ShrinkingViolet Fri 24-Dec-10 11:54:16

DH is braving the supermarket(as MIL has informed us that we're only staying at hers till Boxing day morning (but that does mean that we can have a proper our own Christmas meal on Boxing day grin). I am MNing (obviously) and avoiding the cleaning and ironing. DD1 is in the shower and has been for the past 40 minutes or so. DD2 and DD3 are somewhere upstairs supposedly getting dresed, but most likely reading.

Maybe we should do something festive, make mince pies, sing carols, that kind of thing.

I'm peelin gparsnips and potatoes and singing along with Christmas songs; DH has gone out to get The Meat and a last minute DS (after DD1 told the cleaner yesterday that she was the only one whoo doesn't have one hmm ffs she is only 6); DD3 is asleep; DDs 1 & 2 are so excited they dont' know what to do with themselves so they are falling out
