So here is the third installment of my Journal for Christmas, which required me to make a page each day all through December. The pictures shown are as far as I got and I plan to spend Saturday catching up on the last pages.
Day 15 - This was a really quick one, as it required me to write about the visitors who will be eating all my food and drinking all my wine over the Christmas period. I decided to write all their names around the edge and then panicked about all the people visiting my house.
Day 16 - the girls birthday. What on earth made me decide to have children in the run up to Christmas. Oh, I didn't! They decided to arrive two months early, because they were impatient to have their first Christmas. They love having their birthday so near Christmas; the rest of us find it a bit of a strain!
Day 17 - the party. Or should I say tea party. I just can't cope with full on parties with 30 pre teens going mental and screaming at the top of their voices. So a nice quiet tea party was the order of the day. Quiet, I don't think so, it was the last day of the school term, so they all went mental. It took me three hours to coax the cat back out from behind the sofa, where he had dived as soon as the hoard came through the front door.
Day 18 - first day of the school holidays and it actually snowed. We have never had that and the kids went wild with excitement. I couldn't actually go out in it, as I had developed a really nasty cold, so I had to make do with watching from the window.
Day 19 - I thought I would show the gifts that my secret Santa sent me on this page. These were the gifts I received from Mee. I got some lovely bits from Mee and I can't wait for next year's Secret Santa.
Day 20 - I had to include a page about our dog stealing the presents from under the tree, as it was so hilarious to watch. I would never have believed a dog could open his own presents, but mine did. He would put his paw on the present and rip the paper off bit by bit.
Day 21 - this was a page using the prompts which wanted to know what you were doing that day. As you can see, we were rather patiently waiting for Santa.
That is as far as I got, but hopefully I will be able to show you the rest next Saturday.
