Christmas is Coming!

1 Day To Go!

Yes just one day to go before the Christmas festivities begin and I have just about caught up!!!!  Sixty mince pies are now made, fifty sausage rolls made and I have collected the meat and fresh fruit and vegetables from the Farm Shop so that is all now done.  I just have to finish icing the Christmas cake and I am ready!!!!!

The weekend was busy again, Friday night was our Presentation Evening for the swimming club and we had changed venues from previous years.  This combined with an extra medal being presented for each race, we had lots of parents and swimmers there (more than previous years!) which was great.  The Boys had done well in the Championships and Youngest got his first Second place plaque which he was thrilled with.

Youngest also received The Captains Shield this year for Great Sportsmanship for the year which was presented by Eldest, as he is the Boys Captain, but no one got a picture and I was helping get the buffet unwrapped!


Eldest was helping the President with the trophies and he then presented Eldest with his trophy!

The Disco afterwards and one of those dances!


DH doing the disco!

It was a great evening and we got home about midnight!  Saturday was the first Saturday in six weeks that DH and I had been in and it was so nice not to be going anywhere.  We got quite a few jobs done before Christmas which needed doing and then Sunday we went to see our friends over in Stafford with Christmas gifts.

Tonight DH and Youngest are doing a disco for another swimming club in Derby for their presentation evening!  So I am getting some ironing finished and those odd little jobs finished for Christmas Day! 

With one day to go my Holiday Tip for today is


Have a Marvelous Monday
