Not Long Until Christmas!

October 25, 2012

Now that Term 4 is underway, I have decided to turn my attention to Christmas and the school holidays. This isn’t something that I normally do. Normally, I try to block Christmas from my mind as much as possible. Am not too sure why, I think it is because it has always been a stressful time of year.

This year is going to be different, – and easier!

It is the end of October and I have over half of the Christmas lay-by paid off. Every July, the major retailers here have a toy sale and offer a no deposit lay-by for Christmas. This is perfect for people like me who are on a restricted income.  Most of the items in the lay-by are for the boys for Christmas – at least I know that there will be presents under the tree for the two most important people in the house 😉

This year I have decided that I am going to do a ton of baking and give our friends hampers of homemade items. I get a lot of enjoyment out of this and all of our friends really love my cooking.

For the boys I am organising school holiday activities for them to take part in as well as swimming passes. Summer here in Perth gets really, really hot. Being in a house with no air conditioning means that I have two very hot (and confused) children. With the price of water these days, it is cheaper to take them to the pool.

Would love to hear from others about their plans for Christmas this year!
