Dammit. I wanted to mark the occasion of post 555. It had a certain resonance with me but I sent that short one from work yesterday and blew it!
I also forgot to post last night. Yesterday was a busy day. Work was crazy and when I got home Paul was actually out for a change so I sat down and wrapped his Christmas presents. That is all of them done now. Time flew by and I suddenly realised that I was late to go out and meet Soulmining. We went and had a drink and a chat and caught up – it had been a couple of months so it was lovely to get the gossip. Then I went and picked Paul up from his work’s outing to the bowling alley (he lost – badly. I laughed!!). By the time we got home it was late and we had an early start today so we went straight to bed. So no post!
Today has been a good day. We went to Tesco and did our big Christmas shop this morning and then came home and had a lovely cooked breakfast. I tidied and cleaned and did laundry like the wind until lunchtime when we had an appointment to go and see a house that is for sale around the corner. It needs a lot of updating but I really like it. We are thinking about it this weekend and Paul is going to see it again on Monday with his Mum. I am scared to think about it too much. It does need a lot of work but I would love that, we could really make it completely our own. It is so stressful, but exciting too.
Here are a couple of pictures.
The rest of the day was spent baking mince pies, icing the Christmas cake and making this:
Yep, that is right, me as a dancing elf. Merry Christmas.
It has been a week since I had a cigarette. Yay me!
