Goodbye November – Hello December


Sorry this is a bit late, but it has been one of those weeks.

How was November for you? Ours was busy, but the main event was after waiting over 18 months since his accident, my husband finally had his operation on his knee, unfortunately, we will not know if this is a success or if they have managed to repair it properly until he goes back to the hospital next month, so we are keeping everything crossed.

November also saw my Daughter turn 12, how that happened I will never know, only seems like a few months ago she was a baby, she had a great birthday and was thoroughly spoilt as always 🙂

So December, how quickly has this year gone.

It has not started too well for my Daughter as she has been off school ill this week, but today is the first day she has felt brighter, although she did go to school on Wednesday but was far too soon as she came down bad again by the afternoon,

So who has their decorations up? we haven’t yet we have got a tree up in the studio but we had a christmas shoot today with one of our fantastic models who we love working with. We are hoping to get them up this weekend, but I am just not feeling christmas yet, I think because it starts far too early these days. Oh dear, I am sounding like some old miserable scrooge.

I have started christmas shopping and sorting out for the big day.

So, how was November for you did you have a good one?

How are you getting on preparing for christmas? are you one of those organised people who have it all sorted? Or like me and still has tons to do?

    I hope your husband is feeling better and that he will recover from the operation he had.
    I had a rather busy October and decided to keep my head down and recover in November. I am behind with Christmas decoration but will make that one of my priorities this weekend. Have a lovely rest of week x

      We still haven’t put our tree up, was going to do it today, but my daughter brought a friend home for tea so that has gone on hold. I can not even think how little time there is left, I will go into panic mode even more x

    I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone, November flew by – I got a lot done, but was also very ill towards the end with whatever it was floating around and me and the other half seem to be batting it back and forth now. x

      Every year up until she was 7 she would have a really bad chest infection, where we would be fighting temperatures etc and then she grew out of them and just gets a chesty cough now but I think this was one of the many bugs doing the rounds x

    Hope your OH gets better soon

      I know It seemed like the beginning of November one day and the next it was December, loads of people feel the same this year and it is so refreshing to know I am not the only one unprepared. Thank you although I am starting to feel dubious that it has worked he seems to be in more pain than he was before he had the op

    I have it all sorted out but I am taking my time, I do not want to allow the holiday stress to kick in…I am juggling enough as it is, I do not have to have decor up early so it is a process for me.

    • admin

      That is the best way to do it, our decorations are up now. I still have stuff to get but after yesterday there isn’t much more to do
