My head's filled with all thing Christmassy. And I like it!
I was thinking yesterday, as I finished off these present sacks, and this is what I thought.
This year, our decorations are going to be handmade. using paper doilies, pom-poms, and tissue paper, all white and all delicious....our normal style is quite.... eclectic ( anything goes, any colour, any place, any where )..this year will be more managed and make do and mend.
Last year.........not this, I'm not THAT into it all x
A few walks are in order, pine cones need to be gathered, and I've seen some nice thistle heads down the lane I'm going to claim. ( that rhymed ).
You see the bumblebee's are off school the WHOLE week before Christmas Day, which is unheard of, and I'm going to make the most of it this year. Too many parents grumble about having the kiddie at home in the holidays and to be honest ....I'm fed up of hearing about it. If you don't like kids, you shouldn't of had them. If I 've upset you sorry, but this bloggy place lets me say my thoughts out loud and we all have our own views huh? And I quite like my girls, it's great to have an excuse to play and make...it's not going to last forever, so I'm enjoying it.
Perhaps it's because I only have two bumblebee's , maybe having more would be harder, noisier, more chaos. I think really, you have to give up on the clean house with kids under 10years. It's just not going to happen. Not in my home anyway. And I like that. We get the glitters out, the glue, boxes, pens, air drying clay because.........well because we want to.....
The week before Christmas I'm going to make sure we have lots and lots of bits to do, meet a few pals for festive gatherings, and watch the crappy and the good films on the telly.
Have I completely overloaded you with Christmas planning and chatter?!!!
You know, I have also been buying presents and am nearly done!! Hurrah, because my goodness tis tre expensive non? That lovely lady over at x A Thrifty Mrs x made me stand to attention a while back, and I stole her presents ideas.......( hope you didn't mind! )....because she had a super idea about P.J's and popcorn. have a little look
