Morning, everyone. Thank you for all your nice comments about the Advent Calendar. I'm not on commission or anything like that, but here's the link if you are interested in getting one.
When I downloaded it, I went 'inside' the house, played a few games and did a bit of decorating (you can change colours, light the fire, turn on the lights, etc.
All those games started off as presents. When clicked on, the change into games that one can play straight away. The baubles outside only become live on the appropriate day.
A couple of year I downloaded it to my school laptop and each day the children and I opened one bauble and did whatever it was while an advent candle burnt down.. It was such fun.
Enough of that!
I went out yesterday to B&M and then to Aldi. B&M did have some OK stuff but very little that actually called to me. Aldi had a lot of nice festive stuff, mostly food based, so I made a few mental notes. I can't buy anything like that so early; it wouldn't last! I was so pleased with Aldi - I like to use whole wheat pasta and had run out of spaghetti. I was sure they wouldn't have any whole wheat but they did! Excellent!
I'm glad I checked the C2C blanket on my bed because it was plenty long enough so I am on the last lap with it now. Each row gets a bit smaller! Now I need to look up some crochet edging patterns - and that will take for ever but never mind. It's using up the stash and keeping my fingers busy so no complaints.
Today is a busier day.
It starts off, as always, with Slimming World group and this week is a taster week. It's always a bit tricky for our group which is in the morning but I have put together a fruit platter and flavoured some Greek yogurt. It's a favourite breakfast of mine so fingers crossed people will like it. If not - it won't be wasted!!
Then it is home for a quick pre-cleaners tidy up before setting out to school for my first governors' monitoring visit. I'm not quite sure where my lunch will fit into this but I'm sure any left over fruit will come in handy!
The sun is out and it looks nice outside so fingers crossed for a much nicer day than yesterday - for us all. Take care and be safe, everyone, and thanks for reading. xx
