The Start of a Phase

I've been looking through Meridians blog and am thinking she's doing a wonderful job of keeping it upto date and very nice looking, unlike my sorry excuse for one here.....

Mind you she's a damn sight more crafty and arty than I am, so that explains things. I think the most arty I've gotten today is putting up some Christmas lights outside the front of the house. They had the desired effect for dd1, who went oooooh look mummy are those our lights, followed by why aren't they flashing and LED Blue like our neighbours......I informed her ours are tasteful dahlink, nice white star lights (may get around to photoing a string and eventually downloading to jazz my blog up!)

Still the shop blog is getting more notice from me at the moment, although even that's only had one update in the last week. Mainly due to the fact its been busy, hurrah! and dh has been in there mainly by himself this week, as I wrestle with the year end accounts. A horrible experience, which is nearly over, bar a few credit card statements I could do with.

I also attempted the xmas shopping with Meridian yesterday and she did a fine job of assisting me, balancing my parcels, when I got overloaded and feeding us both coffee in the right places!

As you can tell I'm starting to get sorted for Xmas.....I've done quite a few cards tonight! and no doubt more wrapping tomorrow, did the kids stuff Monday night. Tree on Friday I think, so we can all attempt to decorate it after I finish work, and dd has done her concert for her dad ( who has been chosen to go over myself! even dd2 got to see the dress rehersal today, I will be watching the video, sob)

Managed to get my hair done yesterday too, so good run at the week, all in all, so far!

Attempted Hula Aerobics tonight, which was fun, in a probably bruised tomorrow way. I managed to be the person most hated in the room, by launching my hoop, not once, but twice at another girl in the room.....eeekkk.....luckily she was a mate of a mate, so hopefully took my apologies in good faith.....either that or I may have lost the mate who took her there to be battered by me, but I think not, as they both stayed around for a quick chat afterwards, whilst I grovelled some more. Made the mistake of exercising next to the woman who takes tomorrows aerobics class, who said pointedly 'you are coming tomorrow too aren't you?' so now I kinda feel I have too.....ah what the hell, I may even discover some stomach muscles in there somewhere!

At least you managed to keep your hoop off the floor better than I did. I'm sure my legs will never recover once the bruises appear. It was more fun than normal aerobics though!

Your hula hooping sounds dangerous, perhaps you should invent a new martial art and become Master of Hulajitsu.
