8 Sleeps...

and the day seemed to linger ;)
Today Allison and 5 of her day care kids came to visit, that helped the day to go swimmingly.
Mum called in as we finished tea, the girls all flew to the door when they heard who it was!!! She stayed over an hour and the girls were VERY loud while she was here!!

The lovely Veronica tagged me this lovely Christmas Survey, so I must partake ;)

2. Real tree or artificial? this year is our first with a non-real one and I miss the pine smell but not the watering or pine needles on the floor!
