Word of the Week – Christmas

What other word could there be this week than Christmas. The last presents have been wrapped, the tub of chocolate has been opened and food shop has been done.

I’ve cleaned the house from top to bottom several times over. The kids are full to the brim with excitement and the CBeebies panto has been on repeat since weekend.

I had lots of last minute work come in this week so things have been hectic to say the least. I’ve decided that what doesn’t get done tonight will have to wait until after Christmas. I’m well and truly ready for a break from the daily grind.It’s been so nice having Daisy home this week, we have done lots of fun little festive activities. I’ve even had a lie-in which is a rarity in this house. On Christmas eve our house will be full of family and delicious food. The children will get the jam packed hamper I’ve put together for them.

The evening will be spent trying to sneak presents under the tree and building a dolls house. Chris and I will then spend some time together watching a film, I’m opting for Scrooged this year.Of to bed we will go in anticipation of an early morning wake up call from excited children. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

I wish all of you lovely readers and fellow bloggers a very happy Christmas, Thank you for all your support this year and for returning each week to read my waffle.
