A great start to the day - not. It was -5, first really cold day we have had so far this winter. Hubby gets up and defrosts the car, scraping all my windows clean and warms it up ready for me to leave for work. Well this morning it was for none of it, the pigging thing would not start, and it would have to be a weekend when I start work at eight and the first bus out of the village is five past nine. Phoned the breakdown company and they said they hoped to be out within an hour. So I phoned daughter and dug her out of her bed to run me in, and she did. The battery on the car has a bad cell and needs replaced.

This is it, our effort on Christmas tree and decorations. Got a new battery in the car as well, could have done without the expense but needs must.

When I did some shopping I treated my taxi driver to a little thank you, just thought it would make a change from doughnuts for her.

A bit of babysitting while DD and SIL went off for an anti-natal appointment. Spud is measuring a bit bigger for her dates than she should be but nothing to worry them. Will make a change as DD has not had a big baby yet, considering she was 9lb 1oz and 24 inches long at birth herself. The twins had been playing with the bricks but when they got fed up Bob decided to play with them.

A bit of baking that tastes quite yummy but was a disaster, Tried out the brownie maker I bought awhile ago, hmmmm don't think I will use it again, though to be honest I think I over filled it. It all stuck to the top and I had to scrape it off.Still taste yummy but.

Hubby was filing the receipt for the battery and decided to sort out all the ones that are out of date. I know I lead such an interesting life that this is picture of the day. I don't have kids and cats to take pictures of.
A very good friend of mine makes all her family and friends hand made cards, and I feel honoured to be considered amongst them and receive mine every year. Beautifully cross stitched.

Well that is it for this week, remember we are not back next week, nobody wants to be doing 365 on Christmas Day. I hope you all have a great festive season whatever you are doing. See you all back on 31st December when the linky opens early in the morning to link up our last twelve pictures. That linky will stay open until the Monday night as normal.
