Youngest’s 16th!

DSC05017Well we have sort of sorted out the pictures!  So to now catch up on three weeks of no posts!  Hope your are ready for all this, it is has been a busy few weeks!!!!

December 2nd was Youngest’s birthday but this was also the day that the Managing Director of the German company we work with was coming for dinner so it was all a bit mixed up.  Here are his presents waiting for him when he got in from school.

DSC05039For his party he and six friends and his brother went go-carting at the local in-door track.  It was a good job it was in-doors too as it had been raining heavily all day.  Here they are waiting to go on to the track.  He had a great day here and on his Birthday.

test 1024Just to show you how manic it has been this is my calendar and the week I am talking about.  I have had to colour code everything so I don’t forget anything!!!!  Last week looked the same as well!!!!!

DSC05011I made this for dinner the night of the plays and I was quite pleased how it turned out.  I had also been making mince pies for Christmas so used the left over pastry for this steak and onion pie.  It all went!

Today I have been out getting raffle prizes for the Swimming Club Presentation Evening, which is this coming Saturday evening and getting a few more food bits for Christmas, which can go in the freezer.  Tomorrow I will show you some more of the Christmas preparations, including our decorations.

I hope you are having a great Monday and your preparations for Christmas are going well.

Hugs, Susie x

    So glad to see new pictures!!! You have been very busy…but you always are!!! Perhaps when Youngest goes off to uni you can slow down a bit, but I doubt it – you seem to thrive with all the craziness!!! Happy Birthday to Youngest…is 16 the age where he can get a drivers license like it is here? Scary/fabulous time for parents…they can take themselves where they need to go without you, but they are out there without you!!! Can’t wait to see your Christmas decor!!! I’m on my way for dinner…it looks so yummy and you set such a beautiful table!
