Today's Hs:Ms texture is 'bristles', but mine aren't too spikey. Had a really great day yesterday. I'm going to miss my days out with my youngest he is so well behaved and a joy to take anywhere - I wonder how long that will last!! Got loads of Christmas shopping done once I'd convinced my mum that I didn't care if she thought something might be cheaper in Woolworths - if it was there and not too over priced I was buying it.
I got some of those little jars of conserves for teachers presents - I know I was supposed to be making things but it just wasn't going to happen. Also found 3 other main presents for people and numerous mini pressies, so feeling very chuffed.
Small-N-Grubby was very entertaining. We met a lady who was there on her 85th birthday to which he said "The lady's older than you Grandma!".
Mum took him to look as advent calendars and said they were all horrible (she still hadn't got the idea of the day at this point), so I went back over and said "look there's Santa, a Christmas tree or people skating, which would you like?" to which Small-n-Grubby replied in true Little Britain style "want that one" and pointed to one with an old painting on it of Mary and Jesus being visited by the 3 wise men. Bless him, he's soooo cute. Will get him to hold it up for a pic when he gets back from school.
Came home exhausted and once I got the Dinky Diva to ballet I collapsed on the bed and didn't wake up until 8pm. (Don't worry SMO picked her up)
I'm a bit concerned as I have a really long day out coming up to celebrate my sister's wedding (she got married abroad) and if I haven't regained my energy by then I just don't think I will make it through an entire afternoon and evening.
My surprise package had been cleared by Stansted and is on the delivery van, so I should get it some time this pm, wahoo.

***** Edit - the surprise is already here, but it has a Christmas gift tag on - do I open it or save it!?!?!? *****
