Merry Christmas!

Sorry as I have been missing yet again! Finally seeing the christmas plans comming together so I thought I'd have a quick catch up while I had a few spare moments before the big day!
Yesterday evening we made our "traditional" visit to the winter wonderland, trouble is this year it seemed to have lost its magic! Last year there was snow on the ground and temperatures of about -2 degrees c which added to the christmas feel, however it is mild here in the uk at the moment so with a temperature of about 11 degrees c it wasn't quite the same! We still ended the evening with a hot chocolate topped with cream and a chocolate flake!
Tomorrow, christmas eve, I'll prepare as much of the christmas dinner that I can ready for christmas day, the in the afternoon we are going to see a pantomime, this year is Aladdin. then its back home for Sausage rolls and Mince pies!
So all thats left is you wish you all a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and thank you for all your support and good wishes!
Hugs Alyson x

Christmas Is Comming and I am so NOT READY!!!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while but life has just got in the way! Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know we sadly lost my mother in August of 2010. Since then my father has been living alone some 2 1/2 hrs away and has been very lonely. Well we have finally moved him into a property in the next village so we are at hand when he needs us. I won't bore you with all the details but just to say he was stopping with us for the last 3 weeks!
Anyhow amongst all the upheaval I have managed to make some christmas organisers for the classroom assistants at my daughters school. I downloaded the pages from: and think they will make a useful present to use in next years christmas preparations!
Now to catch up on the christmas shopping, decorating the tree etc!
