So how is your Christmas planning coming along?  Are you nearly there - or nearly at your wits end? ;o)  In case you didn't know...I'm following the Flylady and her Cruising Through the Holidays missions.  To ensure that I'm ready, rested and 'raring to go' come 1 December!

Christmas Planning – Monday 19 November 2012

Hi and welcome back to Christmas Planning!  I'm following the (fan-flipping-tastic) Flylady and her Cruising Through the Holidays missions.  Why?  By jingo, to ensure that I'm going to be ready, rested and 'raring to go' come 1 December! One bag ready for the charity shop! I set myself a mission last week to declutte my Xmas linens and decorations.  Thirty… Continue reading Christmas Planning – Monday 19 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… Continue reading Christmas Planning – Monday 5 November 2012

Christmas planning – 2 weeks to go!

I feel a bit silly calling this post Christmas "planning" like all the others because - thanks to the Flylady - all my prep for Crimbo is actually done!  Ha!  Our greetings cards were posted on 30 November.  (Almost) all the presents are bought and wrapped (or ordered online).  And...we've all just had haircuts! ;D… Continue reading Christmas planning – 2 weeks to go!

Family Advent Calendar 2011

Drum roll, please (and perhaps some sleigh bells?), for this year's Family Advent Calendar! Picture taken after our skinny dip in the cold Danish sea on Thursday 1 December... was lovely to get my nice big, warm bathrobe back on! 😀   1. Christmas Bazar at school (see Thursday's post) and a skinny dip in the sea wearing nothing but...a… Continue reading Family Advent Calendar 2011

Christmas planning – 4 weeks to go!

We're getting into the final stretch!  The Flylady has started sending out the final 'super' missions for getting ready for Christmas, and I'm actually feeling very much in control.  Which is just as well, as we had some excitement yesterday afternoon when DH fell down a very long flight of concrete stairs at the station (we were… Continue reading Christmas planning – 4 weeks to go!

Christmas Planning – 5 weeks to go!

How are you doing with your Christmas planning?  Haven't started yet?!  Never fear, you can go check out the Flylady's website for a complete run down of what you need to 'cruise' through Christmas. My goals last week were to get the Crimbo cards started and finish off the gift shopping.  Happy to say that… Continue reading Christmas Planning – 5 weeks to go!

Christmas Planning – 6 weeks to go!

Have you started planning for Christmas?  No?  Never fear - help is at hand! 🙂  The Flylady has a whole section on her website...planning lists, non-clutter gift ideas, recipes.  I've been using the Flylady's Christmas organiser for years (you can download it for free here) and keep adding to it/revising it every year.  I also… Continue reading Christmas Planning – 6 weeks to go!

Christmas Planning 2011 – 7 weeks to go!

Another Monday.  Another round-up of Christmas planning! 🙂 I finally got the kids photos wrapped.  With lots of help from DD9 (who also wrote out all the to/from stickers).  I bought four different rolls of wrapping paper from Ikea but I have to admit that there was something rather pleasing about wrapping everything up in… Continue reading Christmas Planning 2011 – 7 weeks to go!

Christmas Planning 2011 – 8 weeks to go!

Good afternoon and welcome to this week's round-up of my 'countdown to Christmas' planning (click here for last week's post) - even though, tonight, no thoughts of Santa will enter my head as we'll be out for Halloween! 🙂 One of my goals for this week was to get the kids' school photos into frames and wrapped.  So I went to Ikea - armed… Continue reading Christmas Planning 2011 – 8 weeks to go!

Christmas Planning 2011 – 9 weeks to go!

Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming - my favourite time of year, woo hoo! And - just like last year - I'll be posting my Christmas Planning progress week by week here on the blog.

Family Advent Calendar 2010

Happy 1st of December! Time for advent calendars - and those crazy Danes can't get enough of them! 🙂 Yes, of course, we have the homemade ones that the kids have made at school in art class. And the bought ones from the supermarket where you get a little chocolate every day. It's a common Danish tradition… Continue reading Family Advent Calendar 2010
