Christmas eve tomorrow. Whilst I'm receiving texts from friends asking If I'm making an appearance at the local pub in the afternoon I really don't think I'll manage it this year.
I'm up at 8 and I have to go to the post office to collect parcels that couldn't be delivered today whilst I was out at court (see other posts). Then I have to shoot over to Nantwich in Cheshire (bearing in mind the snow is hammering down at the moment.)
Then I have to go into town to pick up some last minute items, Then over to the florists to pick up a roll of ribbon to wrap a car! My youngest daughter turns 17 in February and I have bought them all cars when they turned 17. This is the last one I have to buy and I couldn't wait until February so I have bought her a car for Christmas. She has no idea. I'm putting the key in a jewellery box and then gift wrapping it and hiding the car in the garage wrapped in ribbon and bows. I bought the car a few weeks ago and it has been hidden at a friends house.(see pic).
I have to then call at my Dads house to visit and deliver his and my stepmothers gifts then once it is dark I need to shoot down to the cemetery to light a candle on my dear mums grave.
Back home before opening a bottle of red and wrapping some last minute stuff for the kids.
Oh if only I had time to call in at the pub to have a drink with friends. It just isn't going to happen.
Merry Xmas all!
