I have had a really bad cold and raging toothache since the weekend and ended up having to miss the Christmas party I intended to go to because I couldn't eat very much was full of cold and in agony with the tooth. I chipped a back one which I have been to the dentist for and had a filling added but I know my teeth I do not think it will be long before I lose it completely.
The washing machine also packed up a fortnight ago and the Engineer is due first thing on Friday morning it has to have a new block and drum in it. I am also in the pros of deep cleaning the house although hampered by no washing machine; but I am slowly getting there.
Shopping with mother on Friday and Saturday.
Decorations at the weekend (I had planned on doing last Sunday but something else got in the way). It all goes to make life interesting.
I have a new chest freezer arriving on Saturday morning
There is also the main food shopping trip to do
A couple of late nights shopping for Christmas pressies I shall wrap as I go.
Then there is the last minute pop into town for M & S.
Then the baking.
Next year I am doing things differently. I have decided that I prefer leisurely time in acquiring pressies and/or making them I do not like last minute. So am going to prepare a couple of funds for Christmas and the Preserving pot. Next year Christmas starts early I shall stockpile differently.
I have made some earrings for a friend for Christmas I hope she likes them.
Right I have to get a wriggle on - less moaning more action - just thought should let you know that I am still alive and kicking - just slightly otherwise engaged.
Catch you shortly
