Word of the Week – Preparation

This week we have all been poorly with Winter coughs and colds. Instead of writing about how miserable it’s been I thought I would focus on the preparation I’ve done for some upcoming celebrations.Being stuck in the house all week has given me a chance to do some planning for Daisy’s upcoming birthday and of course Christmas. All the birthday presents are wrapped and surprise tickets to Santa’s grotto have been bought. Daisy has also requested a pub lunch so I’ve been organising that too.

I placed an order for some of the festive food and drink we want for Christmas. Lists have also been written of the things we still need to buy. Every year we open the chocolates early so Chris will be hiding them from me this weekend.

I’m starting to think about our plans and goals for 2017. I have notebooks full of ideas that I can’t wait to get started on.

So that has been our week, illness and preparation. I’m hoping for a germ free week next week and lots of productivity.
