It's been a busy old week to say the least.
We've worked longer hours on our week off work than we do when in work...but it's been a fabulous (if tiring) break.
We have achieved most of what we'd planned with the exception of the boiler. The engineer phoned to say it couldn't be done this week but they would book it in for the week before Christmas...not on your bloody Nellie!
I have enough to do without the disruption of the boiler being replaced so we've delayed it until after Christmas now.
On Wednesday we picked up our passports and headed over the border into Yorkshire to see the lovely Christine and the equally lovely Barry. We had such a fabulous time but the day just vanished! We had lunch and lots of laughs in a very nice pub and I think we just chatted the day away.
The drive there was longer than usual due to accidents on the motorway, but the drive home was even worse! Next time I shall just pack a suitcase and stay the week ha!
On Thursday we went to Bury to do some Christmas shopping and met my Mum and Dad for lunch.
We had another lovely day out and got an awful lot of the Christmas shopping done.
I am going to spend the weekend wrapping all the gifts and writing cards in the hope that by the time I go back to work on Monday I will have (almost) conquered Christmas :)
Unfortunately, most nights it's been anything from 10pm to 11pm before we've been sitting down and so I've not ventured into blogland until tonight...for that I apologise....but I am here with the candy winner.
Mr Random picked the number...
