Yeah, I know some of you are getting sick of being reminded how close Christmas is, but I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year, and can't help excitedly counting down the days.
Today is usually shopping day for me, but not this week. Well, the shopping did get done, but not by me. Mam, Dad and Kelly had dentist appointments, so they did the shopping while they were out. Made much more sense than them going to their appointments, then them all coming home, and one of them taking me shopping. Besides, it gave me the chance to get caught up on stuff online, and sleep.
We started getting in the food stuff for Christmas today. This includes the stuff for making the cookies and mince pies, and the bits for the buffet we're doing for Mam, Dad and Wayne on boxing day. We even got a couple of bottles of the non-alcaholic grape wine I enjoy. We just need the stuff to make the "holiday drinks" and the cakes for boxing day. We're planning on making egg nog and attempting to make wassail this year. And everyone has put in cake requests for Boxing day, so we need to get some Christmas cake, some of those marshmallow snowball thingys, some chocolate cake, and some ginger cake. We've also got our turkey in the freezer ready for our Christmas dinner.
Anyway, that's it from me for today.
