It was not a great start to the week. I actually lost a couple of days having to lie down on the couch. This is the first time a very bad headache got me so close to Christmas Day!
The end of last week looked like this...
Loch was totally keen to do some more painting since he'd helped paint the Scouts club house so I asked him to help me paint the outdoor benches white. He did pretty well before it got a bit too much for him with all that bending! Nearly got through a whole bench. Then the headache hit and I was out for 2 days.
The boys watching The Polar Express on TV way past their bedtime.
We also had one last Christmas lights drive.
Gav made it all on his own. Clever boy.
Lochy needed some help from dad.
Thankfully I'd recovered from my headache (mostly) Christmas Eve so I had to catch up on some Christmas cooking presents for Ted, Tricia, Andrew and Nic.
Christmas Eve was also the day our dishwasher stopped working. Good thing we were not having Christmas Lunch at our house this year!
We opened our gifts first with Lochy helping pass them out.
Then opened our Christmas crackers with our party hats, prises and jokes. Gav was pretty happy with his measuring tape. Lochy's favourite joke was...
Where would you find a Reindeer with no legs?
Right where you left it.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas with all your family traditions and a Happy New Year!
