Its very quiet in the dub household at the moment - T is currently staying at his Nanny's house for a few days and beloved and I really notice his absence, we are missing him terribly. He will be back in the middle of the week, a day at his cousins and then I will be at home with him on Friday. We will then be getting ready to go away. We are going to Cornwall on Christmas Eve to stay with my family over Christmas, we will be back home in time for New Year and spending time with Beloved's family. While I love seeing our families, I sometimes wish that we could just be tucked up in our own home for the duration. We have managed to slash our Christmas budget this year, we only buy for the children, no adults and this has made a big difference. Everyone agreed that over the years we have all spent too much and if you desparately needed something, why wait until Christmas.
I have managed to get T's presents - all are either second hand or greatly discounted in price. Feeling quite proud of myself with this achievement. I am off work from Thursday until the beginning of January when T goes back to school, I cant wait until I'm off, I really feel that I need the break. January is likely to be a busy month with beloved planning to work on his mum's bathroom which needs some repairs. I'm planning to sell more items on ebay and I also plan to sell some jewellry and other bits and bobs that I no longer want or need. What is the point of keeping them -taking up valuable space! For now I'm looking forward to Yule celebrations x
