My goals last week were to get the Crimbo cards started and finish off the gift shopping. Happy to say that the (circa 40) cards are well and truly started and DD9 is having a ball playing 'post office': sticking on the stamps, 'second-class post' stickers and charity stickers.
|I managed to find some cute - and very apt - 'winter bathing Viking' stamps!|
In other news, DH did his once-a-year-stint in the kitchen on Saturday afternoon and baked...110 Danish Christmas donuts. Yum! We ate about 20 of them on Saturday night and the rest are bagged up and in the freezer - all ready to be enjoyed warm with hot gløgg in December.
DS11 also did a stint in the kitchen - helping me to make up Christmas snaps (recipe for that on the blog tomorrow). It needs to sit for about 40 days, so we're right on schedule!
So all in all, a productive week. I even remembered to feed the Christmas cake - ha!
And my goals for this week?
To finish the Christmas cards and make another effort with the gift shopping.
To clean out and organise the freezer - cos we'll need all the space we can get for the extra meat/veggies/rolls/icecream/snaps etc that I'm adding to my grocery shop every week.
We'll also be out in the garden putting up our Christmas lights.
And lighting the first advent candle on Sunday...

Check back next week to see how we get on... And which music we'll be playing to get us in the mood!
Have a marvelous Monday! :)
