The best and worst lately.00:00
Gosh, December is flying by so fast. Too fast! I am still not ready for Christmas. Nowhere even near. I have so many gifts to buy still. I know it'll all work out in the end and Christmas isn't just about gifts and what not but even so, it's stressful! I'll start off with the 'not so great' things that have been going on lately.
Firstly, we've all been poorly with one thing or another. We just start getting better and then one of the kids come home from school with yet another bug or virus. I think the kids have had two stomach bugs since October! Harry last week was vomiting and then this weekend, Ellie came down with it and now, Monday morning... Charlie is puking. It just seems never ending. I'm certain it's this time of year and being ill comes with the colder weather, also Harry starting high school and a lot of new bugs and germs are going around but shesh. It's just been one illness after another, quite literally! Time to get the Detol and cleaning products out again. (I feel like I'm constantly cleaning and the amount of disinfectant I've gone through, trying to prevent these bugs! I guess my mums theory is right "If you're gonna get ill, you'll get it regardless! Still no harm in trying to prevent it though, right?) Hopefully all will be over with by the time Christmas rolls around. Which is eleven days away! EEK!
I've still got that wrapper lodged in my throat. I need to go back to the hospital for a scan but with the kids being ill and I've been ill, it hasn't been possible. It's not causing me any distress, it's just annoying. I can barely even feel it today so perhaps it's making it's way down (touch wood and pray!)
Anyway. Onto better things.
We've put our Christmas tree up and it looks lovely, I do need to get some gold ribbon though, just to finish it off. I've decorated the tree in a theme this year, silver, rose gold and gold with a tiny bit of black (because the baubles are SO sparkly, I HAD to use them lol). I wasn't quite sure how it would look but it looks really nice, the pictures do it no justice. I'm avoiding tinsel this year as my cats like to try and eat it and I certainly don't want it causing them any injuries or health problems. I've also put the Christmas lights up around the window and the look lovely. I think I'll be more into the Christmas spirit once the Xmas shopping is complete.
Ellie and I took a trip to the local garden centre which was so festive and lovely. We had a great time.
How has your week been? Are you all set for Christmas?
