    I'm on my way home now and I'm officially dead. Everything aches. But I've got advent calendars, selection boxes, chocolates for friends kids, some stocking fillers for the boys and all sorts.

    Thank you. You don't realise how heavy all the little bits and pieces are, do you?
    I also had a delivery, and apparently there's more due to arrive today so I'll be doing more stash pics today too.

    I'm putting outdoor lights on my house today. I'm not going to turn them on yet, but it's so nice outside today I decided to get them up along the roof line. I usually get everything outside and turned on around Thanksgiving (US), so just 2 more weeks!! eek...exciting!

    Ordered a few more bits for the kids (roblox character encyclopedia, roblox hoodie and a Smiggle pop up pencil case for DS and a Smiggle pop up pencil case and Smiggle scented highlighters for DD) I absolutely love their bags and stationary but god they are expensive for what they are!!!

    Currently bouncing on my gym ball to christmas songs :haha:

    Hope baby is here soon.
    Thankfully my boys have never discovered smiggle, I've been in store once and was shocked at the price of a pencil case :haha:

    I know! The prices are awful! I found a seller on Ebay selling bits and Bob's from Smiggle for so much cheaper and they are brand new, so I got it while I could! I wouldn't pay full price for it at all!
