Hello Christmas Week!! - Christmas Chat Thread

Postby Funky Fairy » Dec 19th, '16, 5:47 am

Yay!! It's Christmas week.
Here is your place for your chat this week.
What's happening with you?
Are you busy and frantic?
Are you enjoying the festivities?

It's a work week until the 23rd here with fun stuff thrown in.
We are meeting with friends tonight for dinner. They are our Florida friends.
Funnily enough, Hollie and I are getting our nails done and then meeting with another Florida friend for hot chocs.

We went in to London yesterday. It was really nice. Just wandered. Ended up doing 9 miles.

I need to get this studio tidied.
It's so messy.

Have a great Monday!!

Good luck with the cleaning!

I've done one day of work this week and it looks like I'll be home for the rest of the week. Alfred has a pinkeye and they don't want that going around at kindergarten. We've had several cases at my work as well. Hope it'll get better by Christmas!

We made gingerbread snaps this weekend and tomorrow I and frank will make oranges with cloves. As I'll be home tomorrow I'll try to get some Christmas planning done as well.

Hi Anna,

How's he doing today?
It's that time of year when everything just goes around.
Does it feel good to be home though?

I'm sat here all flushed at my desk. I think the heater is on too strong.
I've been trying to get as much done as possible but still haven't achieved everything on my list.
It's almost 4pm . Ade and I wanted to go to the mall tonight for the final bits.
But I still need to get the post done and grab the kids something for dinner.
We won't be leaving as early as I'd hoped.

Better dash :)

He's in good spirit but one of his eyes is completely red. Poor thing! it is that time of the year and in ashamed to say it but I do feel guilty for staying home with him. I know I shouldn't, I wouldn't want a kid like him at my own work place. Oh well tomorrow I will focus on enjoying the bonus moments!

Did you get everything crossed off?

Hi there!

It's a busy time and I hope everyone is doing well and is looking forward to enjoying the holidays!

I had my last day at work yesterday, and the kids had their last day at school as well. J is working today though and we're taking off tomorrow morning to celebrate at J's brother's place. It's been hectic! We did most of the shopping (or, I did actually.... not we) this week and the house isn't nearly as clean and neat as I would like. I also need to get out today to get some last minute things.

BUT... I feel like I really shouldn't complain about ANYTHING as long as we stay healthy! The stomachs bugs are everywhere and lots of kids at Tuva's kindergarten have had it recently. And the flu is going around as well.

I'm painting my nails while sitting here. Trying out the Essie gel couture for the first time. I've heard so much good about it. Too bad a fab nail polish doesn't make up for bad technique or dry cuticles... ;D

I'm wishing you all a merry and bright Christmas!!
