The first Sunday of the holidays, and exactly a week to Christmas!

I won’t lie. I am relieved the holidays are here. It’s been a tough term from September up to now, peppered with huge ups and downs.

The children were ready for the break, my team were ready for the break, and I was definitely ready!

It’s a tougher time this year for many families with the cost of living crisis going on, and yet families still found it in their hearts to stretch to gifts for the staff looking after their children.

I was touched, and even more so this year, all things considered.

A card would suffice, over even a Merry Christmas at the door, but still, we left feeling spoilt.

And I am filled with gratitude. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

I have to give a special shout-out to my Secret Santa who gave me a beautiful plaque for my writing room too! It is already up, in pride of place!

Now we just need to prepare for the big day itself. I still have presents to buy and foodie bits to purchase. Christmas Day will be with the in-laws, then Pops and Mum are coming on Boxing Day for a few days, so I will cook a round two Christmas dinner for when they are here!

So, tell me, are you finished and prepared for Christmas, yet??

Sorry I’m late, Spidey, and my Peeps!

I’m still in bed, trying to rest up as best I can… Because we only have a week left of school, and though it’s the last week of term, and filled with festive fun, I am also battling a horrid cold, and I cannot be off!

I felt much better yesterday evening, and went out with friends for dinner, but woke up with a sore throat still very much there, an achy ear, and a bin full of tissues by my side.

Hubby Dearest is just about recovering from his lurgy.

Lil Princess left one virus behind the other week, but has a cough again now, which sounds like what I’m battling with.

Only Lil Man, and Sonu Singh appear to be healthy…

Yes, the Christmas feeling this year, is definitely ill!

So, tell me, have you kept safe from these horrid bugs that are doing the rounds?

Thanks, Spidey, for a gigglesome quote!

This year, for the first time, I feel totally underprepared for the festive season.

Sure I have the kids main gifts… (I think. Note to self, please go and check!) But aside from that, not much else. And a little something for Hubby Dearest.

I asked the in-laws the other day what they wanted, and hurriedly ordered small gifts from them.

So, wrapping is the next the stage.

But, for some reason, I don’t feel like being too prepared.

What with Omicrom now spreading through the UK, there is this high likelihood that restrictions may have to be put into place, again, maybe even before the big day, limiting the mixing of households, and certain gatherings.

Oh, I forgot, there is one thing I am kinda prepped for. Because of last year, and the same situation, I managed to get most of the Christmas dinner early, and froze it, and I was glad, because I ended up having to isolate on the main day, due to a close contact testing positive a few days before the end of term. So, I already have a turkey breast in the freezer, along with all the trimmings. It’s just dessert I haven’t got hold of, yet.

I want to go and see Pops and Mum, at some point, but looking at the way things are headed, it might not even be able to happen…

I just wish the powers that be, tell us soon, what the restrictions are going to be, so we can all be as prepared as possible… (Preferably before they embark upon another season of clandestine partying behind No. 10’s doors!)

So, how prepared are YOU for Christmas, this year?

Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

Merry Christmas All ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒŸ

I know I’ll probably be around but, just in case I’m too busy, making memories…

Wishing you all a very special time, this festive season.
It may be different, but there’s no reason to not enjoy, make memories and wish that the next one will be a Christmas surrounded by those we love, because we made the sacrifices this year.
Merry Christmas, Peeps ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
