Day 281 - Dec 24th With Saturday out of the way, it was already Christmas eve, and thank goodness for the wife being so on top of things and virtually everything ready to go. A couple of cards hadn't been delivered and there were a few presents waiting to be delivered, but they'd have to… Continue reading Day 281 – T’was the night before Christmas…
Day 280 - Dec 23rd Today didn't quite go as planned. In the morning I was dropping the wife into town for her to have breakfast with her friends, and then pick her up afterwards so we could visit our friends for lunch and present swapping. While she was with her friends I was supposed… Continue reading Day 280 – What? More pizza??
Day 279 - Dec 22nd So, last elf photo, promise. I seem to have lost a couple of images along the way, which is really frustrating, a combination of falling that far behind and being busy with the build up to Christmas, as well as editing wedding photos and trying to create a new elf… Continue reading Day 279 – Are you still here, Mr Elf?
Day 278 - Dec 21st A day at work that we'd been looking forward to for a while, the reward for a term of hard work, we were being treated to lunch out as a class at a Pizza Hut restaurant. Its not often we get trips out like this, but the class had worked… Continue reading Day 278 – Making a plan is only half the battle
Day 277 - Dec 20th I'm pretty pleased with myself for keeping this elf thing going so far, although this one kept me up pretty late, taking quite a bit longer than I had anticipated. It did make a lovely decoration though, even without the elf himself in place, but its never going to last!… Continue reading Day 277 – The magic has begun!
Day 276 - Dec 19th The problem with falling behind on your blog is that in trying to use it as a journal, to keep track of the days, you can easily forget what you've been up to if you fall too far behind. It has been extra difficult around Christmas with some much going… Continue reading Day 276 – Its going to be an uphill struggle!
Day 275 - Dec 18 So the elf saga continues, and as I seem to have lost a couple of photos along the way, this is going to have to do for today. The story goes that every day the elf returns to the north pole each night when everyone is asleep to report on… Continue reading Day 275 – Who needs spare time?!
Day 274 - Dec 17th This was a day I'd been looking forward to for a while. It was being called The Big One and was arranged by a local motorbike group, as it had done for the last few years. Donations of presents and gifts were dropped off at Streetbike, the local motorbike shop… Continue reading Day 274 – The Big One
Day 273 - Dec 16th Our goal for today was to make sure we were at the in-laws for sunset, as the local round table were not coming down our road this year with santa, and so we had to walk round to see him from the in-laws house as we knew he was going… Continue reading Day 273 – Here comes Santa Claus…
Day 272 - Dec 15th So this year we decided to take part in the new trend that has reached our shores from America, the elf of the shelf. I was reluctantly thrown into this as the wife had purchased this elf and proceeded to tell me about it, before leaving it for me to… Continue reading Day 272 – if you start something, you have to see it through to the end
