I can’t believe it’s the end of November all ready! the last fortnight has been so busy and I know the next few weeks are going to be the same if not worse. This afternoon while watching a film with the children I had a go at making Christmas Tree’s using buttons. I think they look really sweet and were relatively easy to make.

The children came downstairs this morning to discover a door had appeared overnight on the mantlepiece. It could only mean one thing …. Noel the Elf was coming back but there was no sign of him this morning. But when the children returned from school there was a package waiting for them and inside was Noel and some treats along with a letter from Father Christmas.

When the children got up this morning Noel was waiting with some Christmas Gingerbread shapes for them to enjoy after school. The children love looking for Noel every morning to see if they can find him.

This morning Noel had brought the children a dvd to watch. I loved The Box of Delights when I was younger so couldn’t wait to see what the boys made of it. So after dinner we sat down to start watching it. The boys thoroughly enjoyed it and we watched three episodes.

This evening I made a start on putting up the Christmas lights in the window. These lovely lights were given to us by the LED Store to review and I think they look lovely in the window and compliment the other lights. There’s something quite calming yet magical about fairy lights don’t you think?!

Noel seems to have been shopping overnight and brought the children all a treat and a note to remind them to be good! We spent the day in Cardiff doing some Christmas shopping and managed to get nearly everything we wanted. A productive day all in all.

An afternoon spent rehearsing for Panto today for Luc and myself. I can’t believe it’s just under a fortnight until opening day! Unfortunately late tonight I came down with the dreaded sickness bug that’s doing the rounds locally.
After been really quite ill overnight I was so grateful that dad of 3 had a day off and could take care of the children while I stayed in bed to recover. After school the boys busied themselves with some crafts.

A quiet day at home for Erin and I today. Although I’d been symptom free since early Monday morning I felt wiped out and ached all over. Not a pleasant bug and I was glad to see Dad of 3 come home this evening. Erin’s hair has finally reached a milestone! I can just about put it in bunches and she looked very pleased when she saw them.

After a really early night last night I was actually starting to feel back to my normal self apart from tiredness. So I was able to go and watch Erin in her first Christmas concert. She looked very sweet dressed as an elf.
