I Love This Time of Year

I adore this time of year.

Nativity Time

Today Taylor enjoyed taking part in his first nativity play, he was Joseph…..

(And yes, he is still referring to the Baby Jesus as Baby Cheeseless)

Santa came to visit!

Thirsk Rotary Club supports Santa doing the tour de Thirsk and Sowerby every year, fitting in as many streets as they can, knocking on doors, saying hello to thrilled boys and girls and giving out little chocolate treats. This year he has earned some extra brownie points as he told Taylor to be good and to make sure he kept his room tidy. Taylor raced upstairs and needless to say we have a very tidy little boy’s bedroom.

Food Wonderful Food

Kieran has been making 101 plans for all of the lovely baked goods he’ll be making and decorating this year for us all.

And I’m in a soup-making frenzy!


Looking Good, Even if I Do Say So Myself

The tree and the house looks and feels amazing.


My diary says I finish work for the year on Friday and I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to a couple of weeks of proper relaxed festive family fun time.

Damn do I love this time of year!

Dear So and So – 2/12/11

Dear The Woman in Tesco

I wasn’t trying to eavesdrop, you were just pretty loud. Can I just point out that “It is definitely true, I saw it on Facebook” is going to get you in trouble one of these days.

Her who did chuckle.


Dear Husband

Thanks you for my new Miatui bag. I know you think you’ll managed to intercept the postie and wrap it so I can’t play with it before Christmas. Don’t count on it dear!

Love the Wife x


Dear the 5yr old who told MY 5yr old that he would look a “Nob” as a Shepherd in the play.

Thanks potty mouth.

Her who hopes you’ve been cast as a mouldy brussel sprout.


Dear Husband

You stole my belt! Don’t you realise that I’ve lost weight??

Her who may well flash people on the school run when her jeans fall down.


Dear Client

Paying me an HOUR after I emailed you the invoice….

That makes you my favourite client.

Take heed the rest of you!

Her who feels the pinch the same as everyone else.


Dear All

It isn’t Xmas yet but I am feeling festive. I might even come across as cheerful occasionally.

Please don’t be alarmed, I will be my usual grumpy self come January.

Enjoy it while it lasts!
