Oh my oh my oh my has it really been over a month since I have been on my blog? WOW! My feet haven't touched the floor for weeks!!
I have done stitching for exchanges and Round Robins, one of which I am super late with but I have finished and will send out asap ... I will check that people have received then I can show off my stitching :)
Life has been busy with Open University courses, Dr appointments, dentist Appointments and I am now the newly appointed PR for the Parents Council at school :) So personal life has been quite crazy of late!!
Plus I had one great big clean up and clear out ready for Christmas and that took about a week!!! Hey but I can see the floor in the boys bedroom lol :)
Lots done over the last few weeks ... working backwards from present day to weeks ago ...
Our Christmas tree went up yesterday so of course the kiddies and the kittens are totally delighted lol We have not put too many decorations on the tree just in case Ben and Lily like to play in the tree too much haha!!
|Our Christmas tree|
I would say Charlie the kitten too but she had a 'bit of an accident' last week. She managed to sneak out of the front door one evening and never came back for days, which is totally unlike Charlie. Well, without going into too much detail (cos it is not pretty!!) she came home quite badly injured. So I spent an awful lot of time at the vets last week (and an awful lot of money!!). Charlie seems to be recovering slowly. She has spent quite a lot of time snuggled into me, so much so I really do feel like a cat basket now lol!!
Last Friday James came home from Liverpool after spending time with his dad. Conor came with me to the airport ... I'm surprised the airport didn't send out animal control to capture him lol
|Yes he went to the Airport in|
his tiger onesie!!
Cara is a Reindeer in her school play next week and with a lot of time spent looking for a reindeer costume for her, I eventually found a reindeer onesie and asked her to try it on .... well I could not get it off her again for hours lol
|There is a Cara in there|
Cara also got her first lot of homework from school so she is totally delighted ... I wonder how long that will last lol
Mark had homework the other week and he had to make an Egyptian thingy lol This is the finished result!!
So of course this then turned into a super mad art class in our kitchen lol ...
It really does not seem much but it feels like i have not stopped for years and years!! I am all caught up with Uni courses now until January so I plan to chill and stitch!! Most of the Christmas shopping is done. Kiddies go to their fathers for a few days from Boxing Day so I'm not going nuts with food shopping because Laura will be out so it will just be James and I!!! So long as there is chocolate both of us will be happy haha
On a final note ... it is snowing here!!! I wonder if I can get the car up the drive way and down the country roads to get the kids to school in the morning!!! Time will tell ...
Until next time, Stay safe
love and stitching hugs
