Days 5, 6 & 7 and Still Behind!!

OK I'm trying to keep up, honestly I am but its such a busy time of year and not helped by a cold that was outstaying its welcome and a poorly little boy whose had a cold and now has a nasty tummy bug...Bah Humbug!!

Anyway day 5 was 'Counting Down' to Christmas and I have a lovely little chalk board that comes out every Summer and hangs proudly in the kitchen until the jolly fella has been and so that's what my page is about, didn't think it needed journalling as its pretty self-explanatory.

Day 6 was 'Memories - Good & Bad' which was a little difficult for me as I like to keep things cheery so I've gone back to Christmas 2005 when Great Grandad Santa got it all so wrong but would he listen...oh no!!

My journalling reads...

Christmas 2005 and Great-Grandad insisted that my boys needed these Crazy Frog singing toys.

Despite all our best efforts Great-Grandad was insistent on giving Grandma the money and sending her out into the cold to get these annoying toys...any you don't argue with a determined man in his 80's!!

So Christmas afternoon and the frog was open singing his annoying frog song and this was the face that spoke volumes and I cried from laughing that sometimes Santa gets it so wrong...Bah Humbug!

Day 7 was 'Lists' which again I don't do lists...I'm one of those really annoying people that shop in January and by December I'm pretty much done apart from little stocking fillers and most are wrapped so I can sit and chill with a glass of Baileys with ice. Instead I included just a few of my receipts from a shopping spree I had on Saturday in Derby :)

Anyway things to do like another 2 pages so I'll be back again soon xxx
