Christmas Planning – Monday 5 November 2012

Are you a flybaby?  Someone whose house and – more importantly – head has been saved by the Flylady?  I am!  And I love, love, love her Cruising through the Holidays system!  Basically she helps us to get all the prep done now – in October and November – so that by the 1st of December we are ready and relaxed to actually enjoy Christmas.  Not be stressed out by it….

I’ve posted my Christmas planning here on the blog for the last two years.  Here we go for Christmas 2013!

Last weekend I baked the Christmas cake (recipe and ideas here) and will be feeding it on Monday mornings as part of Weekly Home Blessing.

Crimbo cake in the oven…smells great!

The Danish Post Office has just delivered the stamps I ordered online.  And I’ve been through my Christmas card list and made a few changes for this year (going to hand deliver more cards because postage costs an arm and a leg here!).

Love the Winterbathing Viking stamps!

I’ve also checked my Christmas gift list.  Lots of people (again, again…), but I already have a good idea of what needs bought or made.  I’ve placed a few orders online (including pressies for myself from the kids, ha ha!) and what I’ve already bought is wrapped and ready to go!

What to buy for toddlers?  Anything that comes in a huge box! :o)

On the social side of things, I’ve planned a Christmas lunch with mywinterbathing buddies, am looking into tickets for a Christmas jazz concert and have booked an appointment at the hairdressers for a trim in the month of December.

On the food and drink side of things, I’ve started buying a few extra items when I do my weekly shop.  And have already planned our meals for the week when my family from Scotland will be here with us (7 mouths to feed instead of 4).

So that’s the story so far.  Have a marvelous Monday and don’t forget to check back next week!
