10 days to go

and i am not doing too bad, near enough all presents bought - but not wrapped, lots of food already in the fridge - just the fresh food run to do next Tuesday hopefully and then the stress of cooking begins!!!

So as Tim is out at his monthly meet with the Responders tonight i thought i would use the time to update my blog.

Am guessing this week will go fast as the children finish school for the holidays - they all finish on different days which is just so annoying, so no lay in until Saturday.
They are getting extremely excited - we are now having a count down as they realise there are not many doors left on their advent calendars to open, can't wait to see their faces on Christmas morning as it will be Sam's first year for really understanding what it's all about - and boy is he clued up!!!! Love the magical of Christmas through the children's eyes - although Hannah has been asking some very awkward questions , like how does Santa come down the chimney if we don't have one - i can see her little mind ticking over trying to suss out if i am telling the truth or not - it's so hard trying to keep cool calm and collective on such an important topic - but think i am doing just OK at the minute - will pass her to Dad if they get to complicated (lol)!

So last week saw me receive another wonderful Cleo Craft kit for January - and it was so nice to see papers other than Christmas. Well now believe it or not - i have finished my project already and i am about to share my first sneak peek.

So what do you think?? If you fancy a kit then pop along to http://www.cleocrafts.co.uk/ and place an order today.

Some other news i would like to share is my Secret Santa Swap parcel i received last week, my god who ever bought this for me, knows me very well - so me, girly, pink, princesses and a lovely stamp - just adored it. I know i should not of even opened it yet - but when it comes to Christmas i am probably the biggest kid in the house - i just could not wait, not like my other team members - they are all being really good. So look what i got

Can't wait to use these goodies. We are off to panto this weekend to see Cinderella, what better way to use these papers - just hope i manage to get some good photo's.
Anyway guess i better sign off - clock is ticking and it's bed time for me.
Will be back in a day or two with some more preview's.
Take care
