    Default ARE YOU ALL READY FOR THE BIG DAY?

    Have you all finished shopping etc

    What about the wrapping ?

    Anyone relaxing yet or is that a joke ?

    i'm more or less done!

    ... need to prep all the veg, and cook the ham tomorrow.

    also need to do stocking bits ( but as DD/DS are not giving me any peace I can't! )

    tomorrow need to lay table etc

    and clean out piggies!



    I am currently trying to write santa letters to post down the chimney, but keep getting interrupted! 11yr old DS being a BIG pain!

    looking forward to sitting down later and doing nothing!

    I'm sorted. My own girls have been so good today (so far). They've tidied up their bedrooms as they didn't want Santa to hurt himself (that's how messy they were) and they cleaned out the guinea pigs in full, in this awful weather. We are going to have a relax this pm watching a DVD.

    Just got back with more wrapping paper!

    Still have to make the chocolate house, wrap some pressies, help DS with making one last present and bake a cake (if I have time). Just sitting down with a cuppa to regain enough energy to do it all!

    think I'm just about done for today. first 3family visitors arrive tonight and other 3 tomorrow so need to head to Costco first thing tomorrow for buffet food and a few other bits for Christmas dinner. figure I'm going to be in the kitchen A LOT over the next few days. My biggest concern is found out my sister's partner who I have only met briefly is staying 5 nights - had a previous job as a food critic!!!

    Still working, well, watching Smurfs Christmas Carol

    Had a cold and sore throat starting so will dose myself up and write a list of 'to do' for the morning by which time I will feel 100% i hope!

    My teens can chip in and help tidy up too.

    Waiting for 2 presents to come from Amazon - one arriving today - if they can find my house! and one due tomorrow. Both for DH so tough if they don't turn up on time
    Happy to be back with the Greenies

    I'm almost ready. All presents brought and wrapped, food shop done. Today I've scrubbed my downstairs! It sparkles! I've also finally caught up on my washing!

    Tomorrow we've got the upstairs to do, will prep the dinner and then chill! I reckon the upstairs should only take a couple of hours. We are having takeaway for tea so should be able to relax in the afternoon!

    Can't wait now!!!!
