Christmas Panic - Oh to be organised.

Christmas Panic - Oh to be organised.

Christmas Panic - Oh to be organised.

Another layer of snow overnight it's not that deep but roads are treacherous once you move off the main roads. Must try to get out with the camera and take some more seasonal photos. I'm now wishing I had been more organised as I won't be going very far in this and have next to no presents bought, I can see it being vouchers, luckily I have no one for Santa.  The trees are up and because hubby bought them they are ones that needed no branches removed so no greenery for the garlands, they are much better trees than last year and less than half the cost and better still I didn't pay for them. With the road conditions not sure if it's sensible to try and go on the hunt for some but if it comes to the crunch then I'll put them up minus the greeney. If this weather stays I will be doing very little teaching as riders won't travel so although it's beautiful outside why didn't it wait to give us a White Christmas.

Tree is looking good! Better to be sure than sorry as regards going out.

Yes, it's panic stations now. I've just done my lay-out of Christmas pressies to see if it 'looks' like each child has the same amount as the other. Value isn't important at this age but size matters. I need to go shopping.

You tree looks fab but did you say 'trees'? How lovely to have more than one up!

Fantastic tree, roads bad here in the west too - have to go out ice-skateing tonight !- could just do it in the driveway but hey - Rachel, thought I was the only one who did the layout :-)

All mothers think alike, Sharon : )

Or why didn't we buy our pressies earlier. Ha Ha. Tree looks superb. Everything will fall into place. I think the weather is to be milder by Wednesday.

My two are 22 and 18 and I even do a layout too. Some things never change.
