In the afternoon it was Emily's Christmas play. She was one of many narrators, with just 3 lines, she was first on and was very clear. The children who's parents were watching were allowed home early!!! This meant I missed my much needed rest.
When we got home the carpet fitter arrived and was still here nearly 4 hours later, but we now have a new living room/ dining room carpet. Furniture arriving next week and many things in boxes all over the house and Christmas 2 weeks away, mad or what?!
I feel awful today and due to overdoing it in a big way can't settle to rest either, its a stupid illness that's for sure. Thankfully Emily's friend who was coming for tea cannot come, but just hoping Emily does not have a tantrum as I only found out after she went to school so was not able to tell her in advance.
I gave Emily her placemat as one of her advent gifts, she says she is not using it as a placemat as it will get messy (very true) so she is going to use it as a dolls duvet :).
This time of year is so tiring, so much to do and organise, why do we put ourselves through it? I am glad that present shopping is finished and cards are written. Wrapping and posting still to do, hmmmm will carrier bags do?!
