More Prepping For Christmas Posts – My Sunday Photo

We still have lots more things to do to get Christmas posts ready for the blog so all the photos on my phone from this week are Christmas ones! I don’t even have any Ella selfies, which I usually do every week!

We’ve been making magic reindeer food, marshmallow snowman, Christmas bark and still more cookies. Ant’s also making a batch of mincemeat today; we’re going to have homemade mince pies this year at our Christmas Eve open house. The smell of the mincemeat is delicious and is making me feel all Christmassy!

Too Many Apples! – My Sunday Photo

We’ve lived here nearly 5 years. When we were looking for a new home, this was the first one we looked at and I fell in love with the apple tree in the middle of the lawn.
It’s always given us quite a few apples, but this year it seems to have gone crazy! We have hundreds of apples. So many apples that we’re struggling to find something to do with them!

What To Do With So Many Apples?!

We’ve given bags of them away. I chopped and cooked some and KayCee made some delicious crumbles and every time one of the kids say they’re hungry, I tell them to get an apple!

This morning Ant and I spent an hour or so sorting the good from the bad and he wrapped the good ones in newspaper and stored them in a big box.
I’m going to spend the afternoon peeling and chopping the not so good ones so we can freeze them and use them throughout the autumn.

Too Many Apples!

Too many apples!
I’ve been picking them as often as I can and each time I get this many or even more. Today I filled a washing basket, a paper bag and these 2 popcorn buckets again and there are still so many left on the tree!

Another Teenager In The House! – My Sunday Photo

I now have another teenager in the house. It was KayCee’s 13th Birthday on Thursday. She’d been planning her party for most of the year and I’m happy to say that apart from one glitch, it was a roaring success 🙂

Happy Birthday, Teenager!

Strawberries And Cream Baileys – My Sunday Photo

My lovely mother-in-law gave me some birthday money and instead of spending it on the house, like I usually do, I treated myself to some strawberries and cream Baileys.

Oh my word, it is delicious!

I’ll be on the lookout for some dessert recipes using this Baileys now! I tried looking at some on the Baileys website but for some reason, they’re not working.

I did see one for a Baileys strawberries and cream ice cream that I’m going to try. I also want to try making a trifle of some sort. I’ll share the recipe if it turns out nice!

Family Get Together – My Sunday Photo

You may have read that we recently found my older sister who my mum had put up for adoption before she had me and my siblings. We met Jayne a while ago but we hadn’t yet met any of her children or her mum. A family get together was needed!

Family Get Together

Last night my mum did just that and had a party to get our family and Jayne’s family together so we could finally meet 🙂

It was a lovely evening with everyone getting on really well and having a great time together.

Jayne and her mum are at the back. My mum and my Nan-Nan are at the front :o)

Through having this party, we found out that one of my cousins had been friends with Jayne’s son a few years ago and my cousin would often go to their house at lunchtime and even started calling Jayne, mum!

They say it’s a small world and it truly is :o)

The Post Office Are Starting Christmas Prep Early!

I’m a bit obsessed with Christmas, as many of you will know, but even I had to look twice at this letter the super wonderful husband received this week.
Christmas in July is on the Hallmark channel and they’re showing lots of Christmas movies this month so maybe this is why the Post Office thought it would be a good idea to remind us, in July, to Remember To Post Early This Christmas!

Post Office Christmas In July!

Post Office reminding us in June to post Christmas cards early!

I do tend to think about Christmas all year as I like to spread the cost. I did have to wonder, though, if this was a mistake by the Post Office or if they’re trying to get us to spread the Christmas post through the year so they’re not as busy in December!

Ella Selfies Again! My Sunday Photo

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that Ella loves taking selfies and even though she has her own phone, she prefers to use mine! I found Ella selfies again when I checked my phone today 🙂

I have to admit that she knows how to do much more on my phone than I do. There are selfies with different frames such as pretty roses and ice creams. I have no idea how she did them!

Ella Selfies Again!

Ella selfies again!

I love this one I found today. I just wish she wouldn’t keep doing the pout! I know it’s what all the girls her age are doing but I’m hoping she’ll grow out of it soon!

Ella selfies again!

Ella’s 1960s Day – My Sunday Photo

Ella’s school turned 50 this year so on the last day of term all the teachers and children went dressed up in 1960s clothes.

After a few tries, I finally managed to do a beehive like hair-do for her!

Ella Had My Phone Again! My Sunday Photo

I let Ella have a go on my phone while I was brushing her hair. I now have various photos of her in my gallery with different effects from all the filters she’s used!
