It`s that time of year again. I can`t believe how quickly it seems to come round. December always seems to bring with it lots of madness, stress and running around. Although not snow this year so far.
The 1st of the month started with the usual argument with my children about why they can`t open every door on their advent calendar on day one and eat all the chocolate.
Then the school and nursery`s Christmas itinerary comes home. What joy for parents! So far we have completed 2 nativities, 1 school disco, 2 school/nursery Christmas dinners, 1 school party, 1 Christmas craft making event, put decorations and tree up as well as writing 60 cards for my children's friends.
This week ( which is the last week of school) we have 1 nursery party, 1 school Christmas fair, 1 school carol service, 2 birthday parties and a Father Christmas visit.
I will be glad to sit down at the weekend. Sunday night is Mummy's night! All the Mummy's from my daughters reception class are having a very well deserved chinese meal out together. I am really looking forward to it.
I have also completed all my Christmas shopping, done half of the wrapping and finished my NANOWRIMO! Well, my nanowrimo was 10 days late but I will not tell anyone if you don`t.
I hope you are finding the time to enjoy the festivities.
If it is all getting a bit too much here is some stress relief for you :)
