As you can probably tell I have been going through my computer diary looking for things we have done and I cannot believe how busy it has been. Since the swimming we have also attended both Boys parents evenings (good results for both), The Boys went to Top Gear Live at the NEC as part of Youngest’s Birthday present, attended three other swimming Galas (where the club gains points), I have spent two Saturdays quilting presents for Christmas and baking, went Christmas shopping with my good friend, Jayne, to Nottingham, attended the play that Youngest was in at school and last week held Birthday celebrations for him.
He and a school friend had a sleep over at home. We went out in the evening for pizza at Frankie & Benny’s and then to the cinema to see Tintin, which was really good, I was quite surprised. Then we were up early Saturday morning to go to Nottingham shopping. Youngest wanted to spend some of his Birthday money and Eldest and Girlfriend went Christmas shopping and I completed my last few bits of shopping. We then all had a late lunch before Youngest and DH went to another swimming gala and I took Girlfriend home and Eldest to his job at the local golf club as a waiter!
Sunday saw us decorating the house for Christmas and collecting our tree from the tree growers. It was a lovely family day and I will get some pictures of the decorations for the next blog.
The next few weeks are going to be as busy trying to get presents wrapped and delivered, baking and getting it all pulled together for the Big Day.
Only 19 days left and counting!
