We're ready for Christmas. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:

It has to be doesn't it....The big day is nearly here.
My girls are beyond excited....I am too!

During the week I started to panic for no reason....I felt like I was forgetting something or needed to do something but there is nothing.....This year I am so organised. I have never been this organised and it has unnerved me a little. 

The presents are ready (no wrapping at midnight on Christmas eve! Hooray), the food has hopefully all been delivered this morning, I have the Christmas eve treats ready, I have everything set on the Sky planner to remind or record and the meat is getting cooked tomorrow....All I have to do is relax.....

My dad and his girlfriend came to visit at the weekend and it was lovely to see them....They brought the girls so many presents and gave them money too....I said they could wait to spend the money until after Christmas....I didn't see the point of them buying toys this week when they will be getting lots on Sunday.

It's a good job I made them wait. Becky had a slight accident with her tablet. I say slight accident but she dropped it on the floor and the screen is broken....Oops.

I have said she can put her Christmas money towards a new one and we will pay the rest....It may teach her to be more careful with it if she has paid for it herself.....

This week we have watched so many films, finally got around to watching the Cbeebies panto (I don't like Mr Bloom's new haircut) done some crafts, baked and enjoyed some quality time together. 

I have had a couple of unexpected deliveries this week....Well they were expected when they arrived but a few weeks ago I never imagined they would. I had a lovely delivery of presents for us all from the lovely Jayne who blogs over at Sticky mud and Belly laughs and I mentioned on Twitter that I had won a certain little person a toy they had been dreaming of. I'm not saying here in case she reads....That arrived which has really made Christmas even more special....I predict a lot of screaming and excitement on Christmas day! hehehe

I want to take this time to say Merry Christmas to you all....I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.....

Eat, drink and be merry! 


  1. It's all so very close now, it's lovely to be organised isn't it. I hope you all have a very happy Christmas xx

  2. I feel the same! I am all set...or am I?! Have I forgotten something? Well, gifts are sorted, the food all arrived yesterday and the stockings are ready, so if I've forgotten anything else, so be it! Hope you all have a lovely Christmas, thanks for sharing with #WotW

  3. Your week sounds like ours, I had a panic too I always feel like I've forgotten something. I like Mr Blooms hair he look very suave haha. Wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas and a good new year xx #WotW

  4. Have a lovely Christmas Kim, and hope Santa brings what he's supposed to, and doesn't forget anything, it's the worst feeling when you think you've forgotten something isn't it? xx

  5. Oh dear about the screen. You sound ready to rock n roll, happy Christmas and hope you have a lovely time with your family X #wotw

  6. Happy Christmas to you, too!
    You were so prepared for Christmas, all organised and ready to go - the perfect run in to Christmas!
    Oh no about Becky's screen - maybe it can be mended?!
    And congrats on your win- I hope the toy was enjoyed on Christmas morning.

    Hope you all had a fabulous time
