As a family we have discussed the relaxed rules for Christmas. As a large family it will be impossible for us all to be together at Christmas. If DD2/SIL2 comes down with the girls they will want to see their cousins and not fair to let two lots together without DD3 being involved, and four households are not allowed. They all have smaller in law families to visit so they might do that, no plans made yet. In all honesty between three of us working for three different NHS areas, one of who has to use public transport, two SIL's that work in peoples homes as essential jobs, a massive mix of schools and nurseries between the children as well as Fifi being at college and working then there are too many of us to possible introduce it to everybody else. So to make the decisions easier for all of them I have said there will be no second Christmas and I will not be visiting people indoors. Better safe than sorry in my book. The girls all have elderly relatives on the in law sides so they will make up their own minds nearer the time as to what they are doing.
Hubby has spent a lot of time out in the garden freezing his hands off as he is edging round various parts of the garden. Started with the section my shed is now stood on as it will be the first area to be chipped.
Sat and Sunday
Nothing happened, no pictures were taken. At the end of last week I had not been feeling to well but this escalated and I woke feeling really dizzy and nauseas with horrendous tinnitus, normally it is just bad, and even lying down the room still spins, So spent the weekend in bed listening to an audio book to try and mask the buzzing.
Able to get up today and as long as I don't move to quick or turn my head to fast I am fine. Finished sewing up these two little outfits, they snowmen still need eyes and buttons and the teddies still need knitted to go with them.....now got other things to do so running out of time.
Started a crochet project that was requested by Ziggy when I made her Anna for her birthday. Yes it hopefully will resemble an Elsa
Drop my gifts off with the charity Christmas gift place. They also sell new things on display in their window, two of which I really liked but did not have my purse, will need to go back in one day and buy them.
In to help a friend who is moving house on Friday. Went for a walk and then home to crochet.
Chilly start to the day. Played catch up with housework in between helping hubby with cutting wood and went and did an hour on my bike after lunch.
In the afternoon we took a walk along the beach. Nipped back to friends house from yesterday to buy some art work she is selling that will not fit her new house. They will eventually go in the living room next year once it has been decorated. Currently screwed to the back bedroom wall so they don't get damaged......apart from one corner the dog chewed while in the back of the car on the way home. less than twenty mins after a good walk. Little Sh*te!
We fed the swans with some of the bread and salad I had not managed to give away. You would not believe how difficult it is to give away free food that is still sealed in wrappers and fit for human consumption. Even for people to feed to their pets.
Out on the bike for just over 20 miles.
These are two of the four pictures we bought.
Home and walked the dog. Carried on with my crochet project.
