Week five of Festive Friday is upon us, the children break up next week and Christmas is a mere hop, skip and a jump away! Last week’s lucky winner of a voucher for gorgeous Miglio Jewellery (chosen by the online random generator because Bonus Boy won’t do it anymore) is….Emily at Mummy Limited! Well done Emily, I’ll be in touch!
This week I have been mainly watching Nativities
hoping to watch Nativities (post to follow) and internet shopping. I did brave a visit to Argos where I sat on a little seat as directed and glazed over so completely that the boy with the monotonous nasal twang had to call my number three times before he could rouse me from my torpor. I had to go into our lovely kitchen and hardware store to revive myself buying a sugar thermometer and some Father Christmas loo roll! (Pricey but it keeps the teens amused so well worth it!)
I’ve also been buying the last-minute presents, stocking fillers and sundries which are the bits I really enjoy. Once I have bought the children’s main presents I can indulge myself and them with a little bit of frippery and nonsense. I have still to buy anything for Mr TS who keeps grinning at me smugly and telling me he has bought mine (could it be a Christmas Tea Towel?) or to write a single Christmas card so it’s all going par for the course.
I spend a lot of time making sparkly things, cooking yummy stuff, listening to cheesy music and indulging in the fun bits so I am always to be found on Christmas Eve knee-deep in wrapping paper and sellotape with a wine glass in one hand and a desperate gleam in my eye. One day I will be as organised as I always intend to be but I suspect Christmas won’t be as much fun!
So, what have you lot been up to this week? I hope you have some fabulous Christmassy posts to share and if you’ve been feeling a bit Bah Humbug as the Festive Season grinds up to top gear and you slide about in the snow, those posts are welcome too!
This week’s giveaway has been donated by the very lovely Orchard Toys who wanted to join in with the Festive Fun and are offering one lucky reader the chance to win What a Performance, a board game for all the family which invites you to do all manner of things as you work your way around the board! Can you pretend to be a monkey? Make a noise like a firework? Wiggle your ears? If you can’t you have to pay a forfeit!
Father Christmas always very kindly leaves a small pile of family games in our fireplace after he has drunk the sherry and eaten the mince-pie and I shall be asking him for this one! Orchard games are always well made and do what they claim on the box and it’s nice to find something everyone can play!
For your chance to win this lovely prize just leave a comment below!
Now for those of you who would like to link up your festive posts, here’s the linky! You don’t have to link to be in with a chance of winning What A Performance, but it would be very nice if you did! Last week’s entries were fab and I found some new blogs to look at too!
The Linky List and the Giveaway both close at 9pm next Thursday 16th December.
