No it’s not my sitting room but it would be nice!!!!! DH, Youngest and I did manage to get ours decorated over the weekend, but in true fashion this year, the real tree we choose and paid for, by the time we got to the pick up point it had disappeared! They didn’t know if they had managed to sell it to someone else or it just disappeared. Anyway after a long “discussion” we got another one and a discount for the trouble!!!!! Needless to say I didn’t want the discount just the tree we had chosen!!!!
Thursday last week DH and I were in the audience for Youngest’s school House Plays. The four Houses put on a 45 minute play which they write/direct/act in. Youngest’s House Play was based upon Indiana Jones and about his mixed tape!!!!!! It was very funny, with lots of in-jokes and they won the House Play Cup. We got home by 11.00pm but it took us about an hour to get Youngest off the ceiling!!!!! Unfortunately I am still having trouble loading pictures (!) but when it is sorted I will do a post of pictures!
Yesterday we were at Ponds Forge, the nearest 50m swimming pool, in Sheffield for the Long Course Sprint Competition. Youngest did really well and got three PBs so he was really pleased. DH had come along to the morning session but then had to leave after lunch as it was our Club’s Lifesaving championships at Alfreton so he had to be there as Chairman and also commentating on the event. Unfortunately by the time we left Ponds Forge at 3.45pm there was a lot of Christmas shoppers going home, all of us coming out of Sheffield and there had also been a football match between Sheffield and Derby so all that traffic was trying to get home too! It took Youngest and I two hours to get home!
I have been busy catching up on work today and tomorrow I am going to get some Christmas jobs done, otherwise I will be getting behind! This week we have another busy one of normal activities and extra activities. Friday we are visiting some family, Saturday there will be more Christmas jobs to do and then Youngest is taking six friends go-carting and dinner and Sunday is the Charity Triathlon! Which means there is only one week left before Christmas week and one more week left of school!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I hope you Monday is going well.
