Merry Christmas

Well, it's finally almost here. This week has been really hard. I still feel fluey, started to feel better for a few days and now it's come back, so I have no energy to organise anything. We shopped all day yesterday so my back is pretty much useless today, and I still have so much to do.

I have Sam & Harvey coming over this morning, then my Dad & Pauline over this afternoon, then my Mum arrives this evening(though she'll be a help rather than just visiting). I still have to make bread and pigs in blankets at some point, and my housework list is still huge. I am not enjoying being this pregnant at Christmas. I was 20 weeks pregnant on Christmas day with Isobel and that was bad enough. Being 28 weeks this time is too much, thank goodness I'm not right at the end, it would be McDonald's for Christmas dinner!

We have an extra mouth to feed this year, a friend and work colleague of Pete's will be joining us. He's French, and his ex wife and child are back home and he is all alone here. I couldn't bear the thought of him sitting alone in his bedsit, so we are having him here. I like having guests over the holiday period, makes it seem more festive. I had to rush out yesterday and buy him a token gift, didn't want him sitting there during the mayhem that is the present opening without anything to unwrap.

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all, I hope you have a good one.
