Too much to choose from....


I couldn't choose which photo to use for todays word Christmas so I decided to share both of them. I bought this cute little guy on Monday on the way back from the boys consultation day. I kid you not instead of having a parents evening this time, it was a whole day where we went in to see the boys form tutors for a total of 10 minutes each at 9am and 9.12am precisely and then they got the rest of the day off school. So by 9.30am we were busy spending money in the garden centre round the corner getting funny looks from people wondering why the boys weren't in school.
I couldn't resist sharing this picture of part of our tree when it was on last night as I love the shadows it casts on the wall.
Yesterday went down hill pretty quickly as I wasn't as well as I had thought so after overdoing it in the morning I was feeling icky again by early afternoon. Taking it a bit easier today with plenty of lucozade to keep me going. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that Pete doesn't come down with this as I dread to think what it would do to him, hopefully the flu jab he had a couple of months ago will keep it at bay.

Love your tree. No tree here as we celebrate "Sinterklaas" today. We'll put the tree up somewhere next week.

I am loving both photos. I have a countdown but nothing that cute!! I love the big feet!! I love the white ornament with the snoflake/star on it. Very me, I would put that on my tree! Way to go!

Glad to have you back, but sorry to hear that you still aren't feeling well - I haven't been to the garden centre for ages but did manage a trip to the Hollies on the way back from seeing one of the consultants (I was so drugged up that it was ok!). I have obviously been missing out, so maybe if things are going a little better next week .... the garden centre it is!

Fingers crossed that Pete doesn't get the lurgie.
