This week my Word of the Week is: Ready! #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


I might be jumping the gun a little saying we are ready for Christmas as the big food shop is being delivered today and it has me stressed, worrying about what won't turn up. Whatever doesn't turn up won't ruin Christmas but I just want things to be perfect and I don't really want to go out again to any shops getting something really important like the veg or double cream.

So apart from the food shop we're ready. All of the presents have been wrapped, even the extra one's that I have bought over the last week. Stu says he still has the last of mine to do but that's up to him, my wrapping work is done. Becky has decided next year that everyone is getting gift cards or pre-wrapped presents because she left it until Wednesday to do her wrapping. With working she had one afternoon to get it all done plus everything else she had to do as she was out on Thursday with her friend, we're busy today and she's back to work on Christmas eve.

I have slowly been ticking things off my to do lists and adding to them too. I must remember to take the meat out of the freezer today to defrost so I can cook it tomorrow. In a way it will help me, to make room in the freezer for things that are being delivered. I try to get as much as the preparing and cooking done on Christmas eve for our Christmas dinner as I can so tomorrow will be a busy day.

The last of the presents I have sent were delivered this past week. I remember years ago we just had to hope things got to where they were going and wait for the person to ring to say thank you, now we have tracking and I love it, especially when companies like DPD send a photo of the parcel being handed over or where it was left. I do really feel for those who are waiting for deliveries as I've heard horror stories about some delivery companies. I know our Evri delivery woman is working 17 hours a day trying to get parcels out, bless her!

Today is the last big thing we have on before Christmas, we are off out for a meal for my dad's birthday. The plan was to surprise him but his partner and me chickened out. He doesn't take surprises well and doesn't like a fuss being made so now he knows that we're going out for a meal but he doesn't know there'll be 18 of us there. hehehe We are going to his early to drop his birthday and Christmas presents off which he will complain about, he always says we shouldn't waste our money on him. Eesh!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas whatever you are doing. I am really looking forward to it.
