I can’t really call myself a blogger these days as I blog so intermittently!
However, the christmas decorations are up, and my blog is calling me back.
Faithful bloggy friends may remember, in the distant past, that I usually blog DAILY in December! Considering I only managed two posts in November, I might not that this December. However I have been challenged by Mrs Miles to try daily blogging in December, even if it is just a photo …… We’ll see!…..
For the first time ever, we have had snow while putting up the Christmas trees and decorations. It seemed very appropriate and festive. We have had our coldest November in over 20 years, and no sign of temperatures rising just yet.
Here is what I have NOT been blogging about!
The kids enjoying the snow:
New car – traded in an older VW red Touran for an almost new VW silver Touran. My son was not sure about our red car leaving the family “I will miss it’s red-i-ness and the stains on the seats”!!! This is his last morning going to school in the old car and this is his “sad and grumpy” face.
However the new car has SatNav and Parking Assist (yes – it can paralell park for me!) so he has quickly forgotten his loyalty to the old car.
December is always hectic but in a lovely way – Carol services, nativity plays, TWO of my kids have birthday parties being held here at home, I’m cooking Christmas dinner on Christmas Day for 12 of us ……..
The Christmas decor is up – yes, I know I have already mentioned that, but I love it 🙂
A few new additions have been purchased and I plan to share them soon.
My middle daughter has recently discovered the joys of baking, and made these chocolate cupcakes and decorated them all by herself. I didn’t even have to wash the dishes and clean the kitchen after. My only job was to photograph them.
My eldest daughter has started helping out with my JanMary Designs jewellery evenings and it is great to have another pair of hands to assist.
We have TWO birthday parties being held here, AT HOME, in the next few weeks – my daughters are enjoying the planning them. More on those later this month.
So welcome back faithful readers, and maybe some new readers too.
Keep warm and festive greetings to you all.
Have YOU started decorating for Christmas yet? Please let me know.
See you back here tomorrow (hopefully!)
