I’m OK just a bit shocked as I’d never had an accident before.

Making good progress so far this week. Getting there with the advent calendar should be finished by the weekend. Ordered my secret santa present and the kids onesies. Going to get the pants and socks for the kids stockings tomorrow.

Bought some basic decorations for the new tree. Going with red, gold and green. Very different from my other decorations which are silver, purple and pink based. Also picked up a couple of beautiful decorations for around the house from John Lewis. Still need more as I haven’t bought a whole trees worth, yet

Did a load of amazon orders over the weekend and bought some Yankee candle gift sets, a mini drone, a couple of craft sets, more playmobil knights and some diving toys. Still a few people who I have no real plan for (including OH) but it’s progress.

I was also admiring the wrapping paper in matlan today. Definitely think I will get some adult paper from there this year.

Trying to decide whether to by DH a sonos playbase or not. They have as predicted gone on sale today but not as much as I was hoping for. Need to decide sooner rather than later. How annoying!

So I did buy the Playbase in the end. It will be a joint Christmas birthday present (birthday is just a few weeks after Christmas) though as it was way more than Iím supposed to spend. I do still need to get him a couple of little bits from the boys though and Iím not sure exactly what yet.

We bought our summer holiday today. We have been keeping an eye on the price for a while and it came right down today to nearly grand less than the highest price we had seen in the last few months we have been watching. Itís the first abroad holiday we are going on since we have had to go in school holidays so the price feels shocking no matter what.

On a more Christmassy note. Iíve done two squares of the advent calendar tonight and started the food shopping list. I will hopefully finish both tomorrow and go looking for a few more Christmas decorations.

Bought even more decorations for our second tree yesterday but did realise when I pulled them all out that we have about 100 decorations we need to thread and tie before they can be hanged. Might start DH on that as soon as possible.

Also bought this beautiful light up outdoor snowman. Iím not normally one for this sort of decoration but I just fell instantly in love. Tried him out and decided it look really great sat next to the plant pots in my front garden. As I have 3 sets of plant pots though Iím sending DH off to buy 2 more.

Been battling DS1ís school homework. Make a Christmas decoration. Great accept the homework was set on Friday and needs to ge back on Monday day so doesnít give you a lot of time particularly if you have other things planned. Spent Friday night on Pinterest to see what was at both DS1 and my skill level and that I had the materials for. Saturday morning talking him in to the one I picked. Now sewing felt Christmas trees but of course DS2 decided that he had to make one as well so making very slow progress.

Will post pictures when I have more time tonight and have finished DS1 (my) homework.

Well Iím pretty happy with our homework. He did loads of it by himself.
