Merry Xmas Eve everyone, are you too excited yet? Well it's almost reached hysteria here, the girls especially are high as kites. So as soon as they've finished their tea I'll be dunking them in the bath, then teeth brushed and jammies on. And then they'll be sorting out the milk and cookies for santa and a carrot for Rudolph and the other reindeer, and hanging up their stockings and off to bed.
Have you all been tracking Santa? NORAD track him every year and the kids love to see where he is at any given time on Xmas Eve - you'll find him here.
Thankfully Graham got home from his oil-rig yesterday, and Tesco managed to deliver my groceries so I'm all set. Made my soup today - my version of Scotch Broth (I use ham stock instead of mutton), and it's fabulous even if I do say so myself :)
Do you want to know who won my candy?
well, congratulations Fluffles, it's you! If you email me your address I'll pop it in the post as soon as we get the car out of here again. I managed to go out on Tuesday with quite a bit of help, but we've had several more inches of snow since then. Graham tried to get out last night and couldn't get anywhere.
Many thanks to everyone who entered and don't be disheartened if you didn't win this time - I'll be offering some more candy after xmas - because I think everyone needs a little cheering up after all the excitement of xmas is past.
So, Merry Xmas everyone - I hope you get all you wish for. Me? I'll also be celebrating the fact that it will be exactly 5 months since I had my last cigarette tomorrow :D
