Our garden is still very basic, with a shed, some flower pots and a flower bed I created back in the summer. We were due a gardener to call over and get some work done a few months ago. Though there has been some complications along the way, we won’t be getting anything done now until Spring next year. However it is important to get your garden Winter ready. Particularly in the temperatures we have been getting in the last few weeks.
I don’t know about you but three main meals a day is not enough for me. I always have to snack in between otherwise I get grumpy and angry. They also call that hangry, it’s actually a thing. When I am in work, I generally have a chocolate bar in the afternoon or something else. I just couldn’t wait until dinner time. Most times I don’t even have dinner during the week which is why snacking is so important.
Two weekends ago we decorated the house for Christmas all weekend. The week prior to that, we went to the local Woodies to pick up a new tree. The one we had for years was a bit broken and we just put up with it over the years. It was time for a new one. Luckily Woodies had 20% off so we didn’t spend too much. I am hoping the new will last at least eight years as well.
Have you all put up your tree? Ours went up on Saturday. In fact I couldn’t wait to put it up. When you have a fake Christmas tree that takes two hours to put up and look perfect, I definitely want to get the most out of it. But when is officially the right time to put the tree? Do you follow the tradition or do you just put it up whenever you feel festive?
How are you all getting on with your Christmas shopping? Have you got most of it done or are you a kind of last minute person? At the weekend we were busy decorating the house and getting into the Christmas spirit. Of course the stockings above the stove can’t be missing. In November I have shared a few gift guides with you. Ideas for stocking fillers was something I haven’t done yet. Hopefully the gifts I picked below, might give you some help.
I am a bit late with November’s family portrait and it was totally last minute taking it, too. In fact it was taken last night after hubby arrived home from work. But at least he knows his place and knows how important the Me and Mine project is. Haha November must have been the quietest month for us from the entire year. It has been really cold the last few weeks so I didn’t feel like going out or explore anywhere.
