It's just 2 weeks before I'm going to be laid up for at least 6 weeks so the countdown is on. This week I have a huge list of To Do's and slowly I am working my way through them. Today I posted out more than half of my christmas cards as well as gifts to some of my closest friends for Christmas.
I am still working on a few small things but the bulk of my gifts are done. The shopping for the family and 6 grand babies is completed and wrapped and just waiting for the tree to be erected on Friday.
This is the first year that I have been so organised. List making has made it so much easier as well as knowing way ahead of time what I was going to make.
My children are in charge of Christmas festivities this year and even though I am still going to be house bound, which I have been almost constantly for the last 6 months , they will take charge of all of the organising, baking etc and bring it all to me. I will feel very spoilt - It will be the first Christmas ever as an adult that I haven't hosted a Christmas event. I am secretly looking forward to it.
So the remainder of the week will be dedicated to crossing things off my list which I must admit has dwindled quite a lot - Thankfully. BUT next week will be prepping projects to keep me busy whilst I am recovering. I am hoping to work on some long term UFO's. I really do hope that 2018 is the year of the UFO for me. I have so many !
And if I feel up to it I will prep some meals for the freezer to take a bit of stress off hubby who does his best in the kitchen as well as taking care of me. The poor thing will be under enough stress LOL
Finally I will leave you today with my new solar table lamp in my outdoor room. It is just so pretty don't you think ?
