The Week That Was #52

Last Sunday, we had a lazy morning of eating breakfast in bed and watching Masterchef. After lunch, Z and Miss C headed to the local cooking school for a baking session. They seemed to have a lot of fun and the biscuits they made were delicious.

On Monday, it was back to school and placement. We're working right up to the holidays this year but it means we don't have to go back until the second week of January! I picked the kids up from my friend's house and we headed home to get changed and have dinner. My friends popped in for a visit and then my MIL popped in with Christmas presents for us all.

On Tuesday, it was my last day at placement for 2015. It was a really fun day and I do miss not being there when I'm on a day off or at college. That tells me I've definitely made the right decision to do a job that I'll love. After picking the kids up from my friend's house, we headed home for dinner. I made cajun chicken with tagliatelle and then we cuddled up to read a Christmas story.

On Wednesday, I started my holidays but the kids had one more day of school. After dropping them off, I headed to Asda to get some pizzas for the kids as Z was having his friend over for dinner. It was mobbed! It's crazy that people get panic buying for the sake of one day. I managed to get in and out fairly quickly and headed home to put my feet up and read my book. After school, the kids and I got our hair cut. Miss C and I had a good 2 inches taken off which was a bit scary but needed. Husband and Z went to see Star Wars after they dropped Z's friend home and Miss C and I watched Santa Paws 2.

On Thursday, Christmas Eve, we got up around 8.30 and had breakfast. I cleaned the house and friends popped in to deliver presents to Z and Miss C. We went to visit my brother-in-law and his wife at their house and Z and Miss C got more presents. After dinner, we cuddled up on the couch to watch The Polar Express with hot chocolate and some Thorntons fudge. The kids were really excited to hang up their stockings and get to bed.

On Friday, it was Christmas Day. The kids woke up just before 8am and opened their stockings in our room. We headed down to the living room to see if Santa had been. He had! The kids opened their presents and then we had breakfast. The kids' Papa and Uncle popped over for a visit and to hand in some presents and then we headed out for dinner. It was delicious. We got changed in to our jammies when we returned home and cuddled up to watch Stick Man.

On Saturday, I was up early for the Next sale. I do it every year on Boxing day and manage to get a good few bits for the kids. After breakfast, we headed to Matalan to see what their sale was like and then headed to Asda to do our shopping. The kids had some vouchers for Smyths so we headed there to let them choose some things. Z chose some board games and Lego and Miss C chose some Sylvanian Families stuff. We had pizza for dinner and then watched a movie whilst tucking in to some of the boxes of sweets we received for Christmas.
