It’s officially the season to be jolly fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la! The advent calendars were neatly laid out this morning ready for the kids to snack on chocolate before breakfast because that’s what Christmas is all about right? Having eaten todays chocolate allowance E then proceeded to fill her wooden advent calendar with Shopkins, she sure knows how to make a massive mess in less than a minute!
The kids were over the moon that December has finally arrived, it means that we can decorate the house for Christmas and count down to the big day.
I am 99% done in terms of Christmas shopping and J and I have completed writing hundreds of Christmas cards which are now sat on the piano ready to be sent. I made a rather large online grocery order earlier in which is included a few books of stamps so that I can get another job done and dusted.
As for wrapping and labelling gifts I haven’t even started yet and despite it only just being December I already feel pretty stressed at the idea of how much there is to do! I literally have two wardrobes stacked to the rafters with gifts which I need to wrap, label and put into bags. God knows when I am going to get it all done but hopefully sometime in the next week or two I might find a child-free hour or two to get friendly with Mrs Scissors and Mr Sellotape.
I am super-duper organised as always but have a niggling feeling that there is something I have forgotten. At least I have just over three weeks to figure out what I might have forgotten and to load up the sleigh. Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy December!
