One of the reasons I rested up last Sunday was because I needed to have the energy to get me to an appointment in Salisbury on Monday.
For the last couple of years I've been having an issue with one particular tooth and am now at the stage where I needed to consult a specialist about it.
Extraction or a reworking of a root canal are the options.
Neither choice is great.
I managed to squeeze in tiny amount of Christmas shopping before heading home and buying the Christmas edition of the Radio Times certainly cheered me up.
Tuesday was a quieter day than normal at work and for that I was very thankful.
Another new set of festive bedding this week.
Again this was purchased in a sale after last Christmas.
Love the little houses and the colours are very CK.
I've had some lovely little gifts from my sister in our advent swap and this pumpkin brooch is one of my favourites so far. It's going to be a while before I get to wear it though!
By Wednesday I was feeling loads better than I had been at the weekend, which was good news as I was due to go Christmas shopping with my mum and two sisters.
It was good fun being out with them and by the end of the day I had lots more things ticked off my list.
With spending Monday and Wednesday out and about I haven't had chance to get much festive decorating done around the house, just the odd item here and there.
Each evening I've spent a short time wrapping up a couple of presents and am loving making stars to decorate them with.
Stars made with drinking straws.
Who'd have guessed it was possible.
Thread them together and form into a pentagon.
Give them a twist and hey presto a star appears.
We were due to put up our Christmas tree Friday evening but it's been postponed until Sunday as S had a friend round for a sleep over.
So instead of a decorated tree to finish off this post here is how I've hidden the £5.00 inside a box of chocolates which I will be sending over to each my friend's 2 teenage sons.
