The Build Up To Christmas Day Begins!


It is the start of Christmas Week and I think everyone is thinking yes it is here, but there is still a week almost to go!

Cakes IcedWe were all busy again.  Last Friday DH was helping to give out gifts at the local playschool with at least fifty excited 2, 3 and 4 year olds!!!  Then went straight from there to a Christmas Lunch with one of the companies we work with.  Youngest finished school early which was great and so we had a takeaway and sat down to watch a DVD waiting for DH to get home.

Sunday we went over to see DH’s Aunt who lives in Nottinghamshire and to visit the cemetery in the village to lay a wreath for Christmas.  It was great to catch up with his aunt and we also had afternoon tea with her. 


The Butchers in Holloway linked to the caterers Zest.

This morning I had to take Youngest to the dentist for him to check his teeth since his braces have been off, they are great, and then we had to return all the plates to the caterer from Saturday, which is in the wilds of Derbyshire.  Although it was raining it was a lovely drive. 


Tonight we are out for dinner with our friends from Jersey and then tomorrow I am out and about having coffee with my good friend Jayne in the morning and delivering gifts in the afternoon.
