Busy Bees....

This week has flown over.....I seem to have had so much to do and have managed to get most of it done! This week my word of the week has to be.....


I've made a start on wrapping the presents for the girls.....I need to get them finished next week before they finish school...

Stu and I went to see Ellie's Christmas performance at school....All the kids did so well and Ellie sung her little heart out....

I've added all the none perishable food and drink to the Tesco shopping basket online....I missed out on the slot I wanted and the best I could get was the 20th....So I'm still going to have to go to our local Asda nearer Christmas....I didn't want to....I suffer from trolley rage....lol but I have written a list of what we'll need and I'm hoping to stick to it!

Our Elf on the shelf has been busy too....Last week Elisabeth was pretty well behaved this week not so much....hehehe She is quite the graffiti artist! lol I will be posting about her tomorrow!

Next week will be busy too.....Becky has a reward day at school.....The school rewards pupils who have an attendance over 98% and Becky of course did.....They sent a letter out earlier in the week saying for £4 they can go and visit the Metro Centre ....They would not be supervised and would need £7 for the cinema then extra money to spend....

I was less then impressed with this.....It is such a crazy idea to send kids to one of the biggest shopping center's in the UK on the 18th of December it is basically the last full shopping day before the kids break up for the holidays.....I get lost walking around the Metro Centre....lol Plus in my eyes a reward should not cost anything.....

The school must have realised this was a stupid idea as now they've arranged for the kids to have a go at Laser Tag at school instead....Phew! Worry over! 

As well as that Becky has her first after school disco and Ellie has her carol concert at the church and school party with a special visit from Santa.....

This weekend is not going to be busy though....We have nothing planned....As soon as the kids are in from school I will be putting my PJ's on and not getting dressed again until Monday morning....hehehe (Obviously I will change my PJ's)

  1. Busy indeed - not so good about the supermarket trip though. I too suffer from trolley rage and try to avoid supermarkets as much as I can. It's worse if I take MOH with me as he insists on driving the trolley then will ram me with it at least three times because I stopped. Yes dear, that's how the things get in the beep beep trolley!! Good luck x

  2. Looks like Christmas is definitely just around the corner at you home. Same here, but we still lack a Christmas tree. Hoping to get one over the weekend ;) The word busy is a good #wotw :)

  3. Yes, that doesn't sound like the most thought through of reward ideas! Glad the compromise seems much better :)

  4. Loving the sound of your weekend! We've another busy one here. I'm pleased the school changed their mind about the treat, as that does seem rather silly. Enjoy your rest! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  7. Oh that PJ idea sounds nice! I wish I could do that. I've had a busy week too, I think that's how it is for most people this time of year. I'm hoping things settle just in time for Christmas though. The Hubby's game is finished, the boys will be finished with school next Friday then there's just deliveries of presents to make. Lots of travelling. But soon... yes soon it'll slow down. I hope.

  10. Such a busy time of year isn't it? I do love it though. I'm going to start on the big wrap tomorrow, I actually love wrapping! Dreading the Christmas shop though :( x

  11. Trolley rage! I can't imagine ;)

    I know I'm not a mummy but an unsupervised kids trip to a hellishly busy place at a hellishly busy time of year sounds ridiculous to me! Glad the reward is alternatively arranged now :) x

  12. That does sound like a very busy, but fun week! It's been pretty busy here too, but we seem to be getting there :) #WotW
