Can you believe that this time next week will be Christmas Day? This morning we had our first sprinkling of snow – and more is forecast. Here in N Ireland we rarely have a white christmas, but maybe this year it will happen. For those who get tonnes of snow each year, this may look insignificant – and it is, unless you are 5!
Today’s carol service was my eldest daughter singing solo again, this time in front of over 900 pupils from her school. Parents are invited if your child is reading or doing a solo, so we had tea and mince pies in the library before attending the carol service. Again she did us proud, but she was very relieved when it was all over.
This afternoon my son and I delivered our Christmas cards to our neighbours. He was very enthusiastic, with his Santa hat and his “Ho, ho, ho!”
This evening my daughters and I wrapped the majority of our Christmas presents. George the cat sat down on top of the wrapping paper, and tried to look inconspicious, but failing!
I love to see the presents under the tree.
Have you wrapped yours yet?
Tomorrow we have a daughter turning 12 (eeek!), so we have 8 girls coming tomorrow evening for craft and a chocolate fountain.
