Morning peeps

 

oh no jbains thought u knew we had moved t this thread:-( well let us know how last night went. Feel ya pain mind at 2:30 once home I’d b  face dropping on the bed full clothed t sleep lol. Tell em t help if u start t wain when the family land. U should enjoy too . Love ya daughter waited t open her pressies- makes me smile think of it Happy 

tigercub girl I am in awe of what u do do so anything u haven’t is neither here nor there. Don’t dwell - everyone will b happy to spend time with u. We sometimes forget what the spirit of Christmas is about it’s doing what u r thinking of those we love - try to think of the good memories and smile that u have them:-)

rileyroo god I love the way you kickback nd just accept yr family as they r .. perfect parenting. No where is is it written we must have a huge meal on Xmas day it’s xmas dinner regardless of what we eat. 

Ive said before we don’t have turkey cos we have had so many Xmas meals in the lead up we r sick t the back teeth of it lol. Xmas dinner is whatever u eat at dinner time on Xmas day end of lol x

So true. There seem to be too many expectations for xmas these days. I usually get the food on 23rd or early morning 24th. This year just the 4 of us and that's how I like it. My son flies back so can't wait to see him. They all got back safe and sound and paying for it all now - head and very aching body. Nevermind - just cant keep pace as before!

Well that’s the Christmas trees up, dog has confused himself senseless and crashed out on the couch!

I’ve done the soup for boxing day, now in the freezer, tick.

I wrote my Christmas cards last night, seem to be fewer each year as age and illness diminishes the number of friends and family still here and on that sombre note I’m going to get my stuff ready for tomorrow.

Looks like quite a decent day weather wise, shame I won’t see a lot of it! Take care ladies!

You’ll enjoy getting back into the swing of life again. Dbs checks should come thro pretty quickly this time of year, mine took about 2 weeks and that was this time of year altho a few years ago now, time flies!

 

Hope your daughter’s birthday was enjoyed by all including you!

Have to wait for email whether I got in or not then 2 training courses. After all this then I can volunteer! Heating on and on sofa with blanket! Not used to commuting early in morning. Enjoy your day ladies.xc
