    Came home from work to a parcel from OH's friend in Ellesmere... Expecting it to be an outfit for the girls but we were surprised with this!
    Gin, chocolate, clothes, teddies, crafts, giftcards, scratchcards and a game.

    It turns out that there was a second game in that pack, Wormz Battleground, so Sebby was able to give to him after all. He was SO happy! Bless him :)

    Can't believe it's only 1.30 and we've already eaten and washed up!

    Girls were up at six. Turkey in at 9. We are so hungry (skipped breakfast) so we ate as soon as it was ready .... It was delicious

    We are having our roast for dinner :) After a lovely breakfast with croissants and mini muffins and loads of chocolates and biscuits throughout the morning, we all skipped lunch except for Sebby who had pitta bread and houmous.

    We ate around 1:30 too. I can't believe its almost 6. I refuse to think its over just yet. Weve still got the week of "what day is it? Do we need dinner or could we just have cheese again?" To go yet :haha:
