A little bit of company....

This week has been so long.....It has really dragged....I think it's been because the kids and I are waiting for December to start......Advent calendars, Elf on the shelf, things going on at school and the build up to Christmas!

On the upside Stu has had the whole week off work! It's been lovely having the....


I don't mind the time alone when he is at work but it's nice to have him here.....We've shared the housework and cooking which has been lovely for me....He's done a few DIY jobs that needed doing and came along on the school run....It's been nice to have someone to chat to on the way there.....

Stu and the kids took over the kitchen the other night baking cakes.....Two hours they faffed about in the kitchen....lol They did have a great time though and the cakes were delicious!! They sure made the most of having him off work.....


We've taken stock of the Christmas presents......Every year I try to get my girls the same amount of presents.....This year I thought I was struggling to buy for Becky.....She's at that age...Too old for toys and to young for adult things but not I have over bought for her and her pile is twice the size of Ellie's....Today that is being sorted thanks to Smyths toys and their two toys for £15 offer....hehehe

It's been a lovely week! Tonight though the TV, Twitter, Facebook and blogs will be my company....Stu is off out for a few drinks with some friends.....He doesn't go out very often.....Last time he staggered in at about 3am and spent the night in the bathroom....He was in my bad books....I would never come in that late....hehehe

  11. Wow sounds like a nice week. Any week with cakes involve is nice =P

    I have yet to start with Christmas. Decors is still missing in our storage room and well I cant afford gifts so we are probably just doing lots of crafts =)

  13. Hi Kim, having your husband home for the week must have been nice company (especially as he helped out with the cooking!) My Hubby Dearest thinks turning meat on a barbecue is cooking (I have to prepare everything else which he never considers!).

    How great that Stuart took the time to do some baking with your daughters. Did they clear up properly?....And I hope Stuart had a good night out and didn't get too hammered!
