CHRISTMAS!!! 

 

What are you getting the kids this year?

 

LE is after a new mobile phone which I've just ordered today plus he wants extra storage for his PS4 and I'm buying him a new chair for his bedroom.

 

I've been on a diet since the end of August so I'm just looking forward to the food and drink lol!

It's nearly December, and all I've done so far is agree the Christmas Day menu with DD.  Time for DH to have a break from cooking.

 

DD has found her own present, (and I have approved it), DS 2 has sent a list and DS1 is impossible. I think I am going to delegate to DD, she's brilliant at finding out what her brothers want and she will be home for over a week before Christmas which then gives me time to shop.

Ds1 has asked for well over budget, ds2 for nothing, and dd an eclectic mix of odds and ends.... Absolutely predictable!

We have had a request for 2 books. 

 

One of the books was last printed in 1975, and the other isn't released until 28th December in the UK - nothing like a challenge here then !

Ha ha nothing like a challenge know how that feels we usually have it every year and this year is no different Caci!

 

LE wants a new mobile phone but he has to have the Maple Gold colour! As soon as he said that I knew he had chosen the most 'rare' or difficult one to get hold of!

 

Ended up searching for days on end and then eventually telephoned Samsung who told me that the Maple Gold colour was not yet available in Europe! Phew sigh of relief as I now had a solid reason why he couldn't have that colour lol.

 

I was only thinking today how much I have actually changed Christmas to fit in with LE. It's been like that for so long now I haven't even thought about it for years.

 

We keep things calm so as not to over excite him. Tree for instance goes up later than most people's trees and this time of year in particular he needs his 'quiet time' even more as he has always called it.

 

This was very difficult for me as I came from a family who loved Christmas and everything was OTT! We spent huge amounts of time together as a family.

 

I've really had to change drastically and it hit me today for some reason how the lead up to Christmas and Christmas itself is so different from what I experienced as a child.

 

Hope you all have a lovely day xxx
