This week has been all about shopping, you know how it is? You feel you have ages and ages of shopping time, then all of a sudden Christmas is in two weeks, arghhh. I used to be so organised, but over the last 5 years my festive organisation has deteriorated at an alarming rate.
I know what I need to do, I just can’t motivate myself to get going. I think it because life is so busy, these is always something to do, somewhere to be. I am too busy enjoying family life and them boom, its Christmas in two weeks and I am not organised.
I decided this week I would get it done, well at this stage I am running out of time aren’t I? It has been a manic week, I have been frantically ordering and tracking down parcels. And then on Thursday I spent a whole day at the Trafford Centre. And I feel I have got the lions share of it done, I could have shopped for longer but I honestly couldn’t carry any more. I still have a list but it is considerably shorter than it was on Monday.
What else have I been up to this week?
I have spent a little time giving Joe’s bedroom a Star Wars makeover and he is thrilled with it.
Even though the weather has been truly rubbish. I love cold frosty weather, but this rain is getting a joke isn’t it? Anyhow I digress, Toby and I have been getting out for our walks everyday. Although I must say we have been soaked to the skin a few times. And yesterday we got caught in a hail storm, that was painful.
We spend a lovely morning at the School Christmas Market where Joe had a lovely visit with Santa, a moment I will never forget. We then came home and decorated the tree, it really is one of my favourite days of the year.
I made mulled wine from scratch and it tasted delicious. Check out the recipe it is so simple.
Chris also decided to decorate the lounge one night this week, we had planned to do it in November but we just never got the time. I had already decorated our fireplace so had to move it all. And the mess! But now it is finished our lounge looks so much brighter, I love it. I now need to find the right pictures to go over my desk, I don’t know exactly what I want, but I will know it when I see it.
Blimey we know how to cram it in don’t we? No wonder I have felt I have had no time this week. I honestly have no idea how I found time to work. I am aiming for a more relaxed week next week, but actually think that is quite unrealistic with Christmas looming, but I can dream.
