    Not even brought Christmas cards, not sure if there's any point now...

    hi,

    there is a handful of bits still to wrap but they are big, so no point getting out of loft to wrap to put back up there to bring back down so will do them xmas eve.

    got food to buy, hopefully going sunday if the snow allows.

    got the last few recipe cards for sister to laminate.

    and i think thats it!!!

    I still have card to write, every single girl left to wrap, finish gift shopping (was going to do it today but to dangerous to drive at the moment! grr) Prepare 3 rooms for guests to sleep in, finish food shopping

    I have asked MIL to make mince pies now as I just don't have time, i have however made the chestnut stuffing and the red cabbage is in the oven now (both for christmas day but freezer great!)

    5 kids are 98% done and I've wrapped all their gifts yesterday. 50 gifts all wrapped by myself. :happydance: I had a deadline of today to get it done as my kids are out of school after today.

    I have my MIL, my mom, my nephew and my aunt to buy for. Dan has to pick up the desks in IKEA for Amanda and Jayden, and I have a few odds and ends to pick up for my stepkids and Chase. Still have cards to write out and send.

    Honestly, I am in a better place than I was a few days ago :)

    I am almost ready and it will be all done by the end of the weekend.

    I've got flu at the moment (dont know if its normal or swine...) so am on the sofa off work. OH gets paid on monday so going christmas shopping for food at tescos. Not looking forward to that in the slightest!

    I get paid on christmas eve (when I'm working!) so going to have to run out and get OH's present. I was planning on getting him a ragdoll kitten but our estate agents can't be bothered to contact us to make sure we are allowed one. Really frustrating me as I have no idea what to get him now and we both really wanted a cat. Was going to pick it up on xmas eve and get my dad to keep it at his overnight then drop it off in the morning. Had it all planned out :(

    Grr. Really annoyed the way it has worked out. I was really organised. Got all my xmas shopping done apart from OH right at the start of december and its all wrapped but I keep remembering things I've forgotten about but too ill to do it all. At work every day between tomorrow and xmas so don't know when I'm going to do it all!

    SO STRESSED!!!!!!

    Have to get a few presents this weekend (OH's mum and my mum, and a few more bits for Tegan) and get them wrapped. I have a few things waiting to be wrapped which are piled up on the display cabinet in the lounge. I don't have to buy anything for Christmas dinner, since my Mum is cooking it and we're going to hers on Boxing Day.

    I am also REALLY excited... Everything has gone well this year. Last year was a HUGE balls up - we wanted our first Christmas to be just us and LO, and honestly... it was BORING!! We spent Christmas Day chatting to each other, watching tele, went to the pub, dinner was burnt, LO slept the whole day since she was only 4 months... This year is all about FAMILY, and not just 'us' :)

    I've still got to do my cards LOL I'll do them tonight hopefully and send 1st class. Still got to wrap, I've been itching to do some for a few nights now but don't have tags :( I'm getting some tonight. Still got to get my brother his bonsai tree and print photographs of amelie for the great grandparents gifts and of course, do our big shop.
    Today I cleaned my couches and oven so atleast that's 2 jobs ticked off the Christmas tidy up list.
