Getting ready …

10 Dec

As of Friday, I feel slightly human again.

Just in time to get busy for Christmas.


Friday – bake gingerbread with Otto, collect Biggie from school, do hair (this is far more of an undertaking than it sounds), creche Christmas party, games with friends (5p Agricola)

Saturday – shopping: choose sofa (negotiations about whether ‘aubergine’ is an appropriate colour for a sofa are ongoing), buy new clothes for Biggie (OMG she looks grown up), buy new clothes for Otto, buy new dress for me. Home, rest, 3p Agricola with Biggie and Fraser (at Biggie’s urging). 2p Agricola with Fraser.

Sunday – snooze, christmas party with friends, carols by candlelight with family.

I am struck that sitting outside in the evening singing Christmas carols a week or two before Christmas is possibly not as common elsewhere in the world as it is here.

Today, I have chased up a doctor’s appointment for Otto (the surgeon never filled in the paperwork for her referral, so we’re not in the queue … sigh …), made dentist appointments for both girls … and had a phone call from a friend offering us 2 Wiggles tickets for tomorrow.
