I've been sorting....

I have been busy this week.....Sorting out a lot of things. My word of the week has to be....


Last Friday I ordered the girls main Christmas presents....A Teksta Puppy for Becky and a big set of Lego for Ellie....They arrived earlier in the week and have been hidden away.....A few smaller things for Christmas and have been hidden all over the house.....I have cleverly set a reminder on my phone for Christmas Eve to tell me what I've hidden where.....Trust me I need this. In July this year I found a small Christmas present from last year for Becky that I had hidden in the back of the shoe cupboard....lol She got it for her birthday.....

After a few long phone calls and speaking to legal professionals I have got somethings sorted in my personal life which should have been sorted about 8 years ago.....It's nothing serious and I don't really want to speak about it yet but probably will in the future when everything is finalised.....It's not anything really exciting but it will make some fantastic blog posts....lol

I also got the Labels sorted out on ALL of my blog posts.....Oh my it took hours. I know there was probably a quick way to do it but I never found it.....lol I should have been doing it since I started blogging.....It was one of those things I kept meaning to do but never quite got round to...So now you can click on where it says for example Word of the Week over there on the right and it will show you all my WOTW posts! Very handy.

We have family visiting tomorrow......My Great Aunty Jean, my brothers ex girlfriend (we're still close) and her son (my nephew)... They live in Scunthorpe and visit a few times a year and it's took some organising this time to get the visit.....There has been some health problems with Louise's family they're not sorted but hopefully they can get some answers next week....Fingers crossed!!.....Anyway my girls are so looking forward to it....I am too....I hope my Aunty Jean remembers to bring me her fabulous Scones....

We have a babysitter sorted for Saturday night.....Stu and I are going out for a friends birthday to see a band which include 2 members from famous North East band The Animals....They sing songs from legendary UK bands of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s...We've watched some YouTube videos and they look and sound alright and sing quite a few songs I know....

It's been a very busy but productive week.....I have got so much sorted....

  1. Congratulations for getting things sorted! It must be such a lovely feeling :) We usually start our Christmas shopping around mid-November, now I'm wondering whether we should start early too? ;) #wotw.

  2. That is a lot of sorting! I can imagine how long that took you on the blog, but well-worth it! And how clever to make a note on your phone of the hiding places - I'll use that tip, thanks! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  8. Well you taught me something today - I didn't know that labels existed! Love the idea about the present hiding places - unfortunately I have a teen with super detecting skills where presents are concerned so if I forget I usually ask him! #WotW

  10. Wow you are so organised with Christmas shopping well under way! I always, always intend to start in October but it never happens. I have so much blog admin to do too, I'm just waiting to have a bit of clear free time with no-one else around to distract or bother me! Fat chance! Well done to you on getting yours done and have fun with family and out on Saturday night X #wotw

  11. Check you out all sorted now! Well done you. Every time I try to sort I found a whole load of other things that need doing so am forever unsorted so to speak.

    Hope you enjoy your family time

Love the idea of setting reminders to help you find the Christmas presents again and hope you have a fabulous night out tomorrow x
