I am like now in my head "You better get your skates on", and my son's birthday is today, who is 3 years old.
It is amazing how fast time has flown, but it has been a joy.
We are going to have a little tea party later today, so he can spend sometime with his cousins too and sing him a happy birthday. I cheated this year and bought a cake, but I still personalized it and so it is all ready for today.
I will take a photo and add picture to my Blog I will write on Monday.
My husband and I went for a coffee today. I tried the festive Chocolate Fudge Hot Chocolate in Starbucks and a Snowball Muffin, probably not the best nutritious thing to eat or drink in the morning, but my hubby is off for a change from work, so we wanted to do what we love, and going for a coffee together is one. I did not like the hot chocolate at all, too sweet and the muffin tasted as if it has been sitting there for a while.
It does make me wonder how long those cakes and biscuits sit in the counters at the coffee shops. How often they are changed over, as that hasn't been the first time I have had a piece of stale cake or muffin.
However not going to spoil my day. Last night I watched a DIY SOS on BBC 1, and they were building a garden in Great Ormond Street Hospital, in London, in the hospital grounds. So touching. I thought when Henry was born premature at 31 weeks, was traumatic. Nothing compared to what these parents and children have gone through, and some have been in at Great Ormond Street since birth.
It reminds me how, for me Christmas is not just about receiving gifts, but giving too. So this year I am going to donate some money to Great Ormond street this year. I am also going to light a candle this year and have a drink to toast to those we have lost aswell.
There are some people who will be alone at Christmas, so if you know anyone then why not spend sometime with them. Invite them for Christmas, or arrange a get together so they have some company. Just knowing that there is someone there for them, can make all the difference.
So I am going to end blog here, as got lots to do, but have a great weekend everyone and I will blog again next week.
Many thanks for reading,
