Things have been fairly busy here lately. Not just the christmas things, but all those other jobs that you like to wrap up before christmas (so you can relax after christmas of course). Things like cleaning out cupboards, planting trees (two moptop Robinia's in this instance) in the front yard and sewing clothes for the holidays. Sometimes we make things much harder for ourselves!
On the christmas front, I have wrapped the school "Secret Santa" gifts for the kids, that the parents are providing, handed out at presentation night by the man in red himself. I will (yes, I will) sit down and write out that menu for christmas day. I've had requests for a ham, a pork roast and trifle. Sounds very much like last christmas. As for presents, I'm hoping to make a batch of jam this week, as well as some fimo beads for necklaces.
Do you like my roses? Though these David Austin's don't make the best cutting flower, and their beauty is fleeting, I can't tell you how cheering it is to have my own flowers in the house. We'd never stayed long enough in our other houses to get to enjoy the rewards of our plantings.
As you can see the kids have a billycart now. A garage sale find on the weekend and so far enjoyed by all. Though I must say it is a little nerve racking to see your oldest and youngest speeding down the driveway. Two little daredevils.
Yes, I 'm thinking it will be another rather busy week.
How are you getting along?
What is on your christmas menu this year?
Have you been crafting or working on projects?
