    Recent rain means don't have to water plants!!

    I was only saying that earlier! Although I save the water that would otherwise be wasted while I'm waiting for it to heat up (I use it to water the plants) and I'm running out of bottles to keep it in!

    One of my colleagues is married to a primary teacher, so at the end of term all the kids give her boxes of chocolates etc (I'm in England, where the summer term finishes at the end of July... Which is crazy!)

    He's been bringing them into work, and today we have Roses and Quality Street. I usually only eat them at Christmas so it's given me that Christmassy feeling :)

    I have booked half of my Christmas flights! :) I'm flying back to London on the 3rd January, I haven't figured out yet which day I'm flying home for Christmas because it depends on whether I use any more holiday days before then.

    (This is much earlier than usual for me... Generally I try to have it sorted by the end of October as that's when the flight prices start to go crazy, but I suddenly realised that New Year's Day is a Friday which means I can fly back on the 3rd without using any of my 2016 annual leave. Then I realised that everyone else would have the same idea and decided I should book the flight asap!)

    I got absolutely soaked bringing the washing in from the line but it was a great excuse to change into my jammies. Obviously I went for Christmas jammies!

    I've booked my flight from London to Dublin in December, so that's both Christmas flights sorted! And my new boyfriend is going to come over to Ireland for a few days as well to meet the family - he's never been to Ireland before!

    Last night I put on some new pyjamas and snuggled up on the couch to watch Elf. I lit a Christmas candle and my husband made me the most delicious hot chocolate in my Santa mug. It was lovely.

    Thanks. Luckily my baking expert aunt turned up just as I was about to do it, and did a great web pattern.:) Today was his actual birthday so last night once he'd gone to sleep I set up his presents in the livingroom mini-Christmas style and let him come into the room and find them this morning. He was soooo delighted. I took him out to an arts and crafts toddler group (something he can do with his broken leg) and after that we went to town and I bought him a Christmas duvet cover. Then on to my parents' house where he baked another birthday cake and got more presents. And he's having a 3rd round of celebrations at the weekend with my in laws when we go see Disney on Ice.:D

    A few minutes after finding his presents this morning. (Just the toys on the floor were what he got this morning.)

    It's miserable outside and I'm snuggled up on the couch with my two ladies watching frozen. Yes, it's been watched ad nauseum here but not in the last few months, so now the 21 month old is singing along too :)
