This blog is on hiatus while I take time to re-evaluate my blogging direction.

5 sleeps to go!

20 December 2010

This weekend seems to have been the calm before the storm. Hubby has worked this weekend and it’s been pouring with rain on and off so the boys and I had a very quiet end to the week indeed.

Brock came down with Chicken Pox on the 9th . Thankfully he only had a mild case and was able to for the last day this past Wednesday. He had a great day, he handed out Christmas cards and candy canes to all his class mates. He proudly presented his teacher with a package of homemade rocky road that he helped make. Jack also got in on the action and gave Miss G a bottle of champers to say thanks for putting up with him this year lol. Brock said they played lots of games, had a party at lunch time and even got a present each from the teacher at the end of the day. He came home with all his Christmas artwork as well as a package of shortbread and a Christmas bon bon that they decorated and Miss G filled with goodies. Neither the shortbread nor the bon bon made it home :)

I got my first Etsy sale this weekend. Little Cherry Tree is up and running. I’m having a little giveaway to celebrate my first Etsy sale, so head over there to enter.

With 5 sleeps to go until Christmas, I would have to be the most disorganised mumma this festive season. I haven’t done a spot of gift shopping yet! Tomorrow is the day, Hubby has the day off so we’re going to tackle it together. I’ve got some mini stockings to finish off today before the kids and I get started on our baking and our shopping list for tomorrow.

One more thing before I go, check out the awesome Christmas lights display across the road from us!

It's two houses side by side. They do an awesome job every year and despite the lights being vandalised 3 times in the last month the owners still keep doing it for the local kids. It's a bit hard to see the lights before 9pm here because of the late sunsets, but the lights stay on till 11:30pm and there has been car lods of people coming by to see the magical sight that it is.

Hope you had a great weekend! Enjoy the lead up to Christmas!

Today I’m playing along with Claire @ Scissors Paper Rock and Chantelle @ Fat Mum Slim.
