We had a major disaster, Chris came in from work during the week with engine grease on his shoes, so it was trailed all of the way through the hall carpet and into the living room carpet too. I was very reserved, I didn’t tear my hair out or his, I didn’t scream or shout, it wouldn’t of helped the situation if I did.
So poor guy had the carpets to deep clean Saturday, I must say he made a very good job of them too, even though the cleaner decided to act up and he had the whole thing to strip down them build back up before he could get going, thank heavens I have a handy man.
So onto the gift wrapping, I’ve made a start, you forget how long it takes until you start gathering all the bits and pieces together, I have to say though that it is all starting to look quite pretty.
All of the children's gifts are now wrapped and I’ve made a start on the adults gifts. The good thing is I’ve had Katie Renz helping me, remember the beach stone she had engraved for me? well I have been using this as a paperweight and sitting it on top of the bows until they are set.
My trees, I only have small trees, I have 3 that i love as you take them out of the box, give them a shake, plug them in and hey presto I’m done. here is two of them.
Food shopping today, I will probable get the veggies in ready for Tuesday and I am picking up the meat early Monday morning from our local butchers, last year i made the conscious decision to buy all of my meat from him, I think it is important that we support our local shops and our butcher is second to none.
