    hi,

    are you going to have a nice relaxing day or working hard?

    i'm going to be working hard!

    i have 2 trifles to make (eldest cant have red jelly and OH doesnt like orange jelly!!!) i have a duck to defrost and a joint of beef to cook. sausage rolls and mini sausages to cook.

    a couple of big gifts to wrap when they come out of the loft with all of the wraped gifts (once kids are in bed).

    and probably loads more odds and ends etc b4 i can settle down with a nice glass of something!!! :thumbup:

    I'll be up early to clean the house top to bottom, then I have party food to prepare, Christmas baking to do and Christmas crafts in the afternoon. Then around 4pm we start our family Christmas Eve party, just me, hubby and the kids, I love it, we pig out, then get ready for bed, pig out some more, put the kids to bed and then relax until Santa comes!

    myself and Gemma will be doing one last big clean of the house, moving all of daisys toys out of the livingroom to make space for the new ones!

    OH is taking Daisy to see his Mum so we will get a chance to get everything done, then he will go and pick up all daisys pressies from his mums later.

    after we have everything sorted we will get a takeaway and watch some xmas tv!

    At midnight OH and I are going to be opening our gifts so that it isnt too chaotic in the morning with the girls opening theirs!
