This week there's been a number of firsts and I've begun doing a few things. My mum phoned me the other day asking me to begin thinking of what the girls may like for Christmas (yes I said that ‘C’ word!) and I knew exactly what they may like – well eldest more precisely although I am certain that the youngest will soon be playing alongside her given a year or so. What I failed to tell her though was that I could easily come up with something my girls may like but never anyone else?!
Following my call with her I took myself out for some fresh air and began ticking off the girls Christmas list. I am glued to my girls every day of the week so getting time to myself is rare. My girls are never far from my mind though but I'm reassured with the knowledge of my babies being cared for by their Daddy. While out shopping I came across the new fiver that was apparently released in the last couple of months. I think I must have been in a baby bubble for a while as I didn't know there’d been a new one released and thought the shop lady was trying to give me play money! I then used it in a well known food shop and made my first free tea. Usually hubby makes that while I make sure we still have our baby girls.
I've also begun to dig out the Christmas decor and put it in one place. Boy did hubby get a shock when he opened the door to under the stairs and came confronted by the Christmas tree! We have a black fake tree but I grew up with a traditional real tree that was planted in the garden after Christmas so I am really tempted to get real ones for the girls. What do you think is fake the way to go? Or do you love the traditional ones? As I moved the old Christmas decor I became aware of what additions I’d like to make to the little hoard and have even begun to make my own.
So there you have it my word of the week has to be ‘beginning’.
