On Tuesday, Miss C and I spent the morning wrapping Christmas presents for our family and friends. I went to wrap a present I had bought for Husband, an aftershave, only to realise I'd actually bought the female perfume instead! Wee Z has his after-school club, so we didn't have to get him until 4pm. What a difference that extra hour makes for getting stuff done!
On Wednesday, we spent the morning cleaning the house. Well I cleaned and Miss C had a tea party. After lunch, Miss C wanted to go for a scooter ride so we took her scooter to school to pick up Wee Z. I started to feel unwell at work so was glad to get home to my bed.
On Thursday, I woke up feeling awful. I was sick. I took Miss C to nursery and Wee Z to school and as it was my day off, I decided to stay in bed. I picked Miss C up from nursery and gave her some lunch. I tried to eat and drink but my stomach wouldn't keep anything down. We lay in my bed and watched The Gruffalo. I dozed whilst Miss C made sure I had lots of cuddles.
On Friday, I woke up feeling a little bit better. I took the kids to nursery and school and then went to do my shopping. I didn't feel much like it but we needed food. In the afternoon, Husband washed the carpet whilst Miss C and I made some truffles. In the evening, we went to the school Christmas Fayre. It was very busy but it was fun and the kids did well winning some prizes at the raffle.
On Saturday, I was back to work. Wee Z had karate and he got his orange belt! In the afternoon, we put our Christmas tree up. I don't usually put it up this early on in December however, Miss Baby K may be visiting next weekend and I really wanted her to see the Christmas tree. The kids were invited to a birthday party at soft play so I took them to that. They had lots of fun and enjoyed their tea of chicken nuggets, smiley faces and sandwiches. Miss C loved the ice cream the best. We had a quiet night at home in the evening as I was still feeling unwell and tired.
