Its almost half term, the time when my festive planning begins with a vengeance!! The lists are being made - the carrier bags of bought already gifts are rescued from the back of the wardrobe, and even (don't all yell!!) starting to get wrapped up!!!
Last years preparations were hampered by my being heavily 'with child'...and being really quite poorly with it. So between hospital visits, bed resting and hospital admissions, I did a lot of my festive shopping on line.....it was great - a process I am repeating this year without the big belly as an excuse :)
The cake is made and wrapped in foil - waiting for its next 'feed' with alcohol :)
And how fabulous is my advent calendar I bought yesterday???(WHSmith)Do you think I can persuade my boys that this is better than the tacky Bart Simpson chocolate affair they are sure to demand lol!!!
