    Default 4 days to go

    So who is working?
    Who is frantically rushing around to get finished?
    Who is in the calm state of mind knowing everything is done?

    Me I should be frantically rushing around but hey ho I cant even be bothered to do the food shopping list

    Working, today & tomorrow. Just been to the park. Very windy. My head is full of 'have I got that?' 'I must remember to say/do this' so am a little stressed. Going carol singing tonight which I'm looking forward to. Have a good day everyone.

    Thanks to Amazon Prime I've been ordering everything online and getting it delivered the next day. The only problem is that each item is sent individually, so I now have hundreds of boxes piled up! I think I've pretty much got all the presents done and just need to finish off the stocking fillers, which I'll probably go to town for this evening.

    I've had an Ocado food deliver this morning, which the little kids helped me pack away. They got very excited at the sight of chocolate biscuits and fizzy drinks. I felt a bit mean telling them none of it was for them! I just need to get the last minute bits from Sainsbury's and that's the food all sorted. My plan is to get it all done by Wednesday night so I have Thursday to relax - or dash around getting the bits I've forgotten!

    I'm working today but only from half 11 so not too bad. It's also my last day until the 7th January!! Whoo hoo!

    I'm pretty organised, everything is wrapped except my sons presents but my plan is to do that when hes at school tomorrow morning.

    Planning on doing nothing on Wednesday as it gets pretty hectic from Christmas Eve onwards, it's my grandads birthday on Christmas Eve so everything Christmassy gets ignored!!

    I don't usually work Mondays ... But am doing emergency cover for a 6&10 yr olds. We've been out for a walk and now they are playing games and using up Christmas crafts (:-) yay! )

    Working tomorrow and Wed with little ones...

    I've just got to wrap stuff, bit of baking, last minute shopping and a tidy up ... so not too bad.

    Woking today. I was meant to start at 8 but lo was sick so next child was due in at 9. At 9 got a text to say he not coming so didn't start to 11.30 . Since I was up I started on a deep clean of the bathroom and got loads of house work done while waiting to collect lo at 11.30. Me and lo went out for lunch and when we came back she was tired so has lay on sofa and I got all beds stripped and washed and waiting for last one to get tumbled dried. Packing away all cm toys and equipment and my house is looking less like a childminders house. Won't be here much until Christmas eve so it is my Christmas clean and will stay clean.... going to get veg tomorrow for dinner on boxing day and Im done

    Well I have done most of the food shop today - might have helped if I had bothered to do some food shopping last week. We must have timed it right as didn't have to queue anywhere.
