I'm feeling fairly organised for Christmas. I did my usual homemade Christmas Cards. They're not going to win any awards as they're made with a potato stamp of a Christmas tree! But I like that they're homemade and i think people like that too. I made and sent out 30.
Today, the weather is wet and windy and dh has been out all day helping his friend with his market stall. After I dropped him off I went into town to get a few bits, nothing exciting, pan scourers, washing liquid and a few bits from the charity shops.
When I got back I had a bowl of homemade veggie soup and a crusty roll, I had a tidy up, hoovered, did the ironing and bathroom. I had already wrapped the presents vintage style using brown paper and my trusty potato stamp but I was missing the string so I did that and they are now finished and I just have a couple more to get.
Our presents are not very extravagant, thank goodness we don't do that in our family, some are second hand and some are homemade.
For dinner tonight I have a nutloaf my mum bought then didn't want so I've cooked that up with pasta for DH (I don't like pasta) and white sauce and veggies.

The girls had slept on the plane so were still pretty chirpy on arrival. After a sit down, catch up and dog walk my parents got down the decorations, put on the Christmas music and we all decorated the tree and put the decorations up. I couldn't help but notice a lot of our 'high quality' childhood homemade decorations were suspiciously absent and seemed to have been replaced with some new shop bought decorations! *gasp*
We had dinner together and then the girls crashed, hardly surprising as it was the equivalent of 1am in Oz. Dh is just driving us home now. I'm really tired and will have an early night too. It's a hot water bottle and double duvet night. Nighty night.
