Still need to go buy the food, have so far only bought a piece of meat and nothing else. Not quite sure when this will happen, depends if and when I can muster up the energy. If not I guess our guests may be going hungry.
As we had paid to take Bob to see Santa last week I had bought Fifi a pair of earrings and a shawl to wear for her Christmas disco. I just liked them and thought them seasonal.
Did some baking, well I had to test out the turkish delight icing sugar I got sent from Sugar and Crumbs. I had bought an icing set with squeezy bottles and nozzles to use for this, but the bottles were a pain to fill, the bottom of one split and the nozzles came off when you applied pressure. I have to say as I was feeling crap anyway I was about reduced to tears not only in making the cake but trying to take a picture I was happy with that would do it justice, but I could not manage it. So this is about the best it gets. It has turkish delight thins on the top and side. Review will follow at some point.
OH had a GP appointment this morning, and as I was due a delivery I got daughter No1 to house sit, so she arrived with the twins for some peace and quiet. Only ever seems to be Lottie that is awake when I am around so we have another picture of Lottie. The twins are growing well, Xander has put on twelve ounces this week, brilliant for a breast fed baby and Lottie has put on eight. You notice the difference in the pram hat the two of them fill it more than they did when they were born.
We had a huge full moon still up this morning, and I liked the way it looked through the tree.
Very very rarely do I drink, a bottle of this stuff will last me a year or two, but I had a notion for a drink of it. Sadly nothing tastes right this week and so I gave it to OH.
I got a very nice e-mail from Mirka over at All Baby Advise to say I had won a Sage control grip all in one from a competition on her blog. Got the e-mail on Monday and the prize on Friday - brilliant service. Went to buy a machine the other week but it was out of stock, I am glad now it was.
This week I have struggled, seriously struggled to take pictures. There have been no children over as I have spent the week feeling really awful. Every bone in my body aches, my head thumps, my throat feels like sandpaper has been rubber on it, my ears are sore, I am tired and feeling really really sorry for myself
These have been my staple diet this week, other makes and supermarkets are available.
