I nearly didn’t write this post today. You may think there’s some philosophical reason for this, but if that’s the case you’re crediting me with too much intelligence. The sad fact of the matter is that I had no idea it was Thursday. Christmas week The past week has been a lovely break from the norm. We’ve seen family, walked the dogs, relaxed at home and played games. We’ve eaten too much, drank too much and made New Year’s resolutions that we’re determined to stick to this time. My husband and I have both been to the pub with friends and…

Where did this week go?? It has been lovely to have Libby home from school and we’ve really been making the most of it. Friday was the last day of term, so we picked her up from school with the dogs and luggage loaded into the car and we headed straight to Manchester to stay with the same friends who came with us to Blairmore Farm earlier in the year. We spent a lovely day with them looking around the Christmas market and both girls were devastated when it was time to come home on Sunday morning. We would usually…

Christmas really is creeping up on me this year. By this time next week we’ll be in the throws of preparing for the big day. And I for one am looking forward to a rest.

This week has been a bit manic. They always are in the run up to Christmas though aren’t they? On Saturday we were singing Christmas carols in the village where Libby goes to school. After that the girls showed off their magic tricks in their Abracademy video. We then helped my sister with her Christmas tree, went for lunch, played at the park and they still fitted in an afternoon nap. If only I’d managed to fit one in too! The dance show Before Christmas, Libby’s dance school always puts on a fabulous show at a local theatre. Last year,…

Despite my best efforts, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here. On Saturday we went into our local town for their Christmas fair. The girls saw Farmer Christmas (I know, I should correct them really but it’s cute right??) and went on a little fairground ride. Libby went on a bouncy slide too but Lia couldn’t make it up the steps! Getting into the Christmas spirit Since then, even I’ve had to accept that the festive season is upon us. On Tuesday, Libby went to the Sea Life Centre on a school trip. While she was there, she saw…
