joycewilson
Hi Stratson, We are going to a local pub have booked for over 20 of us to go for a meal and think its a Karaoke afterwards lol biggrin.gif
Should be a good night out looking forward to it...managed to get an appointment for Sat to have my hair done wink.gif
Heather
I've been very busy today.
Once my hubby finished the dining room he used the rest of the emulsion to do the Utility room.
Then I of course have do all the cleaning up. sad.gif

I had to wash a ventian blind which is just over 7 feet wide. The room itself is just over 8 ft by 6ft.
It was the people we bought the house from that got the Utility room built on, and why they got such a big window put in is beyond me. rolleyes.gif
The other window is just 1 feet wide and I take that blind off and put it in the bath. Hot water and a scoop of washing powder and leave the blind in overnight. It not only cleans the blind but also the cords. A spray of water to rinse the dirty water off and hey presto, a nice clean blind.

The kitchen gets started on Monday. More cleaning up for me.
Anne1
you want to come and do some for me Heather youve got bags of energy lassie laugh.gif
Heather
Annewan, I'll do your cleaning if you do my Christmas shopping. laugh.gif

But I'm not washing any venetian blinds. mad.gif

I have been so busy recently I have been out morning, afternoon and evening most days. However, last night I put out my decorations and tomorrow I hope to get all my Christmas cards written. Sorry if my overseas ones are late..... sad.gif

On Monday and Tuesday this week we, our Summer Theatre Board baked and baked.... we rent a local church kitchen and we made cakes, cookies, all kinds of candy then wrapped it all. We held our bake sale today and made over $1,500 so I think all the work was worth it.

When I got home I had a voice mail from a very good friend telling me her husband had died. They think it started with the H1N1 flu' went to pneumonia in his lungs. Sorry about the downer but I'm still in shock. Don't know if I'll go to the Memorial service, they live in Penticton, about 8 hours from me here.
joycewilson
Hi All,
Had a nice afternoon with my Mum and her friend, we went down to the Star Bar at Eglinton Toll for a pub luch was good to get together and catch up biggrin.gif
Heather
I finished writing my Christmas Cards today and posted them.
I posted the overseas one's last week.

I also wrote my neighbours cards and delivered them. But they were all quicker off the mark than me as I have a stack of cards already.

If I can rouse myself tomorrow I'll put the tree up. I don't usually put it up until one week before Christmas, but Maurice has brought the tree and decorations down from the loft.
A hints as good as a nod, right enough. smile.gif
stratson
Right now am about to retire. My son has brought all the Christmas decs. and lights down.
Like to get my big bay windows cleaned first and guess what, am just not in the mood.
Perhaps tomorrow----who know!
Zak is coming to visit wednesday with his Mum. Guess would be nice if it was all lit up for him.
Like you Heather, don't like them up too early.
Off to bed now, hopefully will awaken full of gusto. smile.gif

Just poppin by to say hello all. I've not had a chance to get on the boards between work and weans. My New wee grandaughter Cara is now 8 weeks and keeping me very busy. Work is complete madness but hey ho cann't complain it would be worse if we were quiet.

I put my christmas tree up with my grandson last week a bit early for me but he was so excited I couldn't say no. Needles to say being the work of a 5 year old it looks like a bit of a dogs dinner but Christmas is about the kids. It was a lovley wee night he's been learning carol's at school and him singing away in a manger as he put all the bobbles on the tree made it really special. WE got out our nativity scene and he told me all about baby Jesus just incase I didn't know laugh.gif

I'm working right up to christmas eve and I haven't nearly finnished my shopping. Does any one know the number for the shopping fairy?

Heather if manage to get her number for you will you clean my house biggrin.gif
joycewilson
I have been a busy bee this am..got all my ironing done and hung up...phew...coffee time for me now.....

Did awaken this morning rarin' to go.

Got washing done, all hanging on the pulley. Will be dry in the morning.
Did a batch of cooking, prepared all the veg. for tomorrow.

Did not have son for dinner tonight, too busy, I had a light tea,twaw biled eggs mashed in a cup with butter, some brown toast Very seldom do I eat eggs.. Fair enjoyed it, lovely getting the place to myself.

Not rock the cradle tonight. smile.gif

Joyce, you remind me of myself at your age, always on the go, work, home and family.
Will keep you young, I still feel young, guess most people do, just the body, wear and tear. laugh.gif

Heather

Today aam staying home as I will until the snow and ice are gone Yesterday . My niece drove me home after delivering pressies for my nephew and my brother's g/g/kids. Enjoyed the afternoon with my family, had a smashing view of the snow falling blizzard like.
2 of my nieces helped me from the car to the entry of my close, the roads were treacherous, everywhere .I guess people would be well advised to stay home if they can.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
stratson
Have opened pressies from my daughter in N.J. They were beautiful, my son has just given me new telephones, too technical for my brain to absorb at present.
My g/daughter and sons arriving 2p.m. They are staying for dinner, Did most of my cooking last night, just veg and potatoes to roast, make sauces. Dessert is all ready to serve.

Right now am having a cappucino relaxing and reading the board.
Get dressed before the troops arrive.
Hope y'all have a happy Christmas day. smile.gif
mamie1

Tori G
Merry Christmas Stratson darls and everyone too of course.!!!

I had an Absolutley fab day today with my immediate family (Mum Dad Partner Son And Mother Inlaw) rest of siblings for a change doing their own thing.
Just lovely warm summer day here in Oz (beautiful 27degC)...nice breeze too thanks to a cyclone up north, (sorry to those it caused disarray for my heart felt thoughts go out to them).

It was so wonderful to hear that the first sound outside I heard this morning was a Kookaburra,...awsome!

May you all have similar experiences for your season on your side of the world!

God bless!!
