It’s been the start of a busy week in the run up to Christmas. Week 50 is done and dusted. Here’s our Project 52 for this week.
Monday I spent a lot of time trying to work out what the issue was with the Xbox controller. We’ve troubleshooted, but it won’t stay connected without a cable. It seems I’ll have to take it back to Argos, although they’re going to have to track down the purchase through their reservations service as we can’t find the receipt and N paid cash. I knew getting the console would be a pain in he backside. Hopefully they’ll just replace the controller because the console is digital only and don’t want to end up having to re-download games and mods etc he’s been using. I’m just glad he has older cousins who can do stuff with xboxes!
On Tuesday we didn’t do much. I took in 3 bags for bags2schools collection. It didn’t really make a dent in what I need to clear out, but there’s another collection in a few months so I can be more organised about it next time. At least the school make some money from it.
Wednesday I went out with some people from work. One of my colleagues had offered to do a wreath making evening at her house, so had invited a few of the girls round for dinner and then wreaths after. She put so much effort in – really nice food, and provided lots of the greenery and decorations, as well as prepping the moss and wire base. I very rarely go out with work people and it was really lovely to do so.
Thursday was just a normal work and school day.
Friday it was Christmas jumper day at school. I managed to make it to target assembly – N was getting his bronze target certificate. He finished the day at tennis. It was the last session of the year, and there were only 2 from his orange group and 2 mini red players. So they did some separate hitting with the 2 assistant coaches – fun target practice – and then some doubles mixing up with the 2 red players. He had a great time and was still playing when all the other children had drifted off. It’s going to be a long gap til next term.
On Saturday it was a busy day. N went beating on the shoot with his dad and was late back. I caught up on all the Christmas prep I needed to do. Shopping for the final gifts, christmas wrapping, and vacuuming ready to put he tree up. I decided I’d wait until N was back to put it up. But I’m now feeling more Christmassy. I also finally put the wreath up. I’d lost my door hanger, so by the time I’d bought a new one, the birds had attacked all the oranges and the plastic apples. So it still looks good, but not like it does in this week’s photo!
