Well, that was a busy weekend. Saturday was the annual family gift exchange (half Chanukah, half Christmas, all stressful) complete with the delightful drive across London and back (it's only 18 miles, but it can take two hours). The kids love it though, and it's a rare opportunity to see their cousins. Mum's jewellery holder was well received, once I explained that it was, in fact, NOT a very small hat. Sigh.
On Sunday I spent the day playing shop girl at Annie's open weekend, which was considerably more fun. Kelly and Pennie were there too, so there was a fair amount of banter going round. Not to mention the fabric stroking and making rainbow kona bundles. Drool! Pennie gave me the loveliest Christmas gift - a bottle of bubbly in possibly the cutest ever bottle bag/Santa sack ever. The little robin embroidery is perfect! Middle child has already tried to nick it off me and squirrel it away in her bedroom somewhere, cheeky thing.
I'm still struggling with a total lack of motivation. I have a couple more things I want to get sorted before Christmas and I just can't settle to anything. It's really getting on my nerves now, so would someone please just give me a slap or a kick up the bum. Thanks.
