Dear Diary – November 25th

Dear Diary – Last week was a quiet one.
Kaycee got picked to play Snow White for the play her Brownie pack is doing at Christmas so she’s been very busy trying to learn her lines.

Dear Diary - Poinsettia


Ella’s Singing

Ella can be heard singing songs all the time because she’s been learning new ones for her class Christmas performance and Ant’s painted the last two shelves of the built-in bookcase at the side of the fire for me so I’ll soon be able to get everything put back and have a proper living room again!

Nearly Christmas :o)

In other news, it’s only one month until Christmas….Yay!!

I love Christmas and last week I bought the remaining few books I needed for our story advent. I’ve now got to wrap them all while the kids are away this weekend so I’m going to do them Saturday afternoon while watching Christmas movies ๐Ÿ™‚

Real Christmas Tree

We’ve been checking out the real Christmas trees in pots at Asda as I’ve wanted a real one for years. They’re smaller than I’m used to so we’re going to put it on a coffee table. I’m hoping if I take good care of it, I can make it last year after year.
I bought the poinsettia you can see in the photo above, from Asda. It was a bargain at ยฃ2.50 ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re planning on putting up our tree and decorations on the 7th and I can’t wait! I think I get just as excited as the girls ๐Ÿ™‚
The weather is certainly helping to get us in the Christmas mood. It’s been very cold and frosty and this morning the water in the paddling pool (which should have been put away months ago but no one wants the job of cleaning it out!) had a layer of ice on it. Ella loved it!

    We have brought my mother in law a plastic poinsettia because she always manages to kill them. I'm getting hugely excited for Christmas.

    Aww how cute that's she's going to be Snow White! My little girl has her first ever concert this year and has been non stop singing Xmas songs. I haven't bought a Poinsetta yet! I'm behind with the festivities lol

    Ah – I just find the frost annoying – it was inside the windscreen of my car yesterday morning!

    We are starting to get excited for Christmas here too – my teen already has decorations up in her room, whereas I am insisting we wait until December to do the rest of the house!

  11. Laura 25th November 2014 at 4:58 pm

    Wahoo!! Bring on Christmas! Toying with the idea of buying a real tree too this year, they have cute little ones at Tesco for ยฃ10!

    Snow White! What a role to land! Congratulations to her! We love the frosty weather here too…even on the school run!

  13. Kate Thompson 25th November 2014 at 4:14 pm

    I intensely dislike Christmas starting in November! My younger two are busy practising all their songs for their Christmas concert too ๐Ÿ™‚
