If anyone that has followed my weekly journey and would like to take part in next years challenge please do pop over to The Boy And Me’s blog where you can read more about the lovely concept behind Project 365 as there is a link up each Saturday and the new one starts on Saturday 4th January 2014.
Saturday 21st December – Some Pj time for us before I headed out for a night out with my lovely friends to the Mint in Mansfield.
Sunday 22nd December – After a super night out (although I was driving) we were on the way out the door to my lovely in laws for a pre Christmas meal and discovered a flat tyre!! … although lunch was fantastic!
Monday 23rd December – After getting the car to the garage and sorting out the tyre business (more costly than I thought) we headed off to get the last shop and finally got our much awaited turkey … now I say much awaited but what I really mean is the one we didn’t really need as we were going out for lunch, but I love Turkey that much I have to find the biggest one possible to eat it for days…… yes I really am this sad!
Tuesday 24th December – After cooking the previously mentioned Turkey it was Turkey sandwiches for tea! we also have a tradition of buying some pre cooked biscuits and the Children decorate them for Santa, this year Joshua really loved getting involved.
Wednesday 25th December – Christmas day …… I couldn’t wait to get the day going so I ended up waking the Children up at just after 6 am! We had visits from both sets of our parents and my sister followed by lunch out just the 4 of us and then some serious fat pants time with the chocolates and films … perfect!
Thursday 26th December – Both Children spent the morning playing and sorting their new things, Hubby was at work and I spent the morning feeling dreadful. After a visit to my parents I retired to the sofa where I sent the rest of Boxing day!
Friday 27th December – After feeling dreadful it was time to get to use the presents!! my sister in law bought me a Soap and Glory gift set and my sister snook in some new fluffy socks and a Yankee candle so it was time to relax and pamper!
Saturday 28th December – After feeling so much better the kids were in for a carpet picnic and then I had the pleasure of popping over to my Friends house to try and help with packing as they are moving house next week. Not sure I helped much but I did sneak in some Freya snuggles … bonus!
Sunday 29th December – The decorations went down and a massive spring clean occurred too .. who knew the house was so dusty under that lot?!
Monday 30th December – My boxset of Call the Midwives turned up so we spent the afternoon evening watching them back to back … now that’s Christmas! … albeit with no decorations.
Tuesday 31st December – A few of next Christmas presents have arrived! .. mind you many think I am nuts as I ordered these on Christmas Eve’s eve … but to me you cant beat saving 50%!
So after a really eventful 2013 with winning holidays, giving up smoking, meeting many of my blogging friends and many other fantastic events it is with sadness I say …… Goodbye 2013
However If 2014 is only half as good as 2013 we will have an amazing year so I am ready to say ….. Hello 2014!!
