    What's everyone up to today?

    My MIL dropped off presents so the kids are enjoying playing with the new presents.
    We might go for a walk later.

    We are having a cozy day in the house building hexbugs and playing games. Usually littlest would come home today from his dad but as it’s his weekend to have him anyway they are going to keep him til tomorrow so it’s just me and big one today

    We went out on bikes/scooters this morning. We've completed isolation take 2 although no results!

    Then I came and cleaned up stairs and took down all Christmas decs and bedding. Feels so nice and fresh up there now

    DH is cooking his lamb so will have another roast (I'll have left over turkey).

    Girls are happy playing with their dolls x

    Didn't have a buffet for yesterday tea (had pancakes and the odd cracker) so we're having a mini buffet today.
    Try and get the living room into some order. Been opening all the blind bag bits with DD2, I want to buy more from work :haha:

    We're sorting bedrooms out tomorrow as it's my final day off work and see what can be gifted or thrown, to make room for the new stuff - had no time to donit beforehand.

    I love blind bags! Didn't get too many this year.

    They got a colour reveal Chelsea and Barbie doll. Didn't realise they could form part of a set (ie same hair/outfit) so now I need to have the set !

    We did nothing much today. Dom is a bit over tired ( :wacko: ) but has been playing FIFA a lot. Sebby is huddled in our bed with his chromebook watching endless DanTDM vids on youtube. I ironed the (washed) tablecloth and napkins from dinner last night and also some shirts and placemats that had been in the basket for... a while... :oops: and I am deeply impressed with self :haha:

    We are having a quiet day, relaxing and eating triffle that we didn't get to yesterday. Sadly I don't have many leftovers for tonights dinner, will need to think of something else. Basically just enjoying not having a list of jobs to achieve or parcels to collect/wait in for/hide/wrap/hide/find/display !!

    Stretching out that xmassy feeling. :)




    I hope you can find a solution Rags.
    We have wayyy too much food and Im worried we will have to throw stuff away as it is going to go off. We just didnt bargain with MIL bringing that much food on Xmas Eve and it totally threw our plans.
