Dear Diary – Busy week
The blog has been a little neglected this week, what with Christmas shopping, present wrapping and family gatherings. It’s been a very busy week and the blog is probably going to be neglected for a while longer seeing as it’s Christmas in a week 🙂
I’m really excited and can’t wait for the girls to open their presents. Aiden’s going to be at his dad’s so he won’t get his from us until Boxing day.
This week, Ant’s mum went into the hospital for an operation that she’s been waiting for for a while. She was supposed to have it a few weeks ago but it got cancelled due to her surgeon being ill.
I haven’t seen her yet but Ant said she’s doing really well and the operation was a great success. She should be home on Friday 🙂
It’s the last day at school today and it was so lovely being able to switch the alarm from auto to OFF!
The girls and Ant are busy packing lots of star cookies into tins so they can take them to school for their classmates. Ant and I had to finish baking and decorating them last night after the girls went to bed.
I thought I was going to be up until midnight until Ant came and reminded me that we have 2 ovens, one of them being a fan oven, so instead of baking 6 cookies at a time I could use 2 ovens and bake 18 at a time!
We had our Christmas party at Slimming World yesterday and unbelievably, I lost 1lb at weigh in! I was expecting a gain after all the Baileys I had at Nanny’s Christmas party on Sunday!
Just in case I don’t do a diary post next week, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and new year 🙂
