The Silly Season ,Family and The Queen.
For most Christmas is exciting and for us it is too but more exhausting than exciting.Because of the change in lifestyle for many, internet shopping is a BOOM!!!!and after the purchase of course there is the delivery and for us that is us!!
Each year we start to deliver 2 weeks before Christmas on the weekends,this year we have been doing it for 3 weeks already!..
I did not join a Christmas challenge this year to keep me on track,I did however give myself a Dec 1st deadline and that was met,so everything was wrapped by then,all the food organised other than the fresh things.
Our son came at the weekend and we had Take 1 Christmas and it was lovely,we will have our daughter and other relies for Christmas itself.
The day has arrived today when we needed to count or Sealed Pots..as you know I was hoping the have $500 in my three pots and I excelled that by a huge amount,we were in shock to find we had saved...wait for it...$2098.90!!!!! we are saving very hard for our fares to the Uk in about 2 years time,now we have just got to save the second fare this 12 months.
I am so disappointed, I took pics of the pots emptied and some of Christmas family timr but I keep getting a message to say I have run out of room for pics yet I have sent them all to a stick and there are only 4 on the PC..I am confused anyway no pics as planned.
So the Queen was in her counting house today,counting her pots and feeling very delighted as it was a hard slog but I am hoping to do just as well next year.
We are so busy at work that blogging has come a very sad last and I am afraid the next couple of weeks will be similar,so Merry Christmas to all and I hope to get some time to catch up ..and post some pic.!
