Making memories: the ‘C’ word

The ‘festive’ C word, that is. I’m not sure I can bring myself to say it yet. C… Chr… Christmas. Aargh! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-Christmas. I love this time of year. I love the darker nights, the frosty freshness of the morning air on the school run. I love seeing the people… read more →

Chaos

As you may have figured out from my sporadic blogging of late, I’ve been a wee bit busy. Cramming in ALL THE WORK before Christmas so that I can have a proper holiday; trying to get kids in the right place at the right time for nativities and dinners and parties and this, that and… read more →

After doing the… read more →

Christmas is Coming!

I saw mince pies and Christmas cake in Tesco (supermarket) today. I don’t know whether to be giddy with excitement that Christmas isn’t far off or cynical about Christmas stock appearing on the shelves already. That said, at least I’ve not seen any snowmen Christmas decorations yet… Edit (20:46): Programs that try and sound good… read more →

ho ho ho!

Christmas was good. Karl and I didn’t get much sleep on Christmas Eve because of my excited fidgeting and the fact we were sleeping on one of those crappo airbed thingies on my Mum’s front room floor, and the kids (my younger brothers & sister) wouldn’t stop bickering.. but I got some great presents for… read more →
