Happy New Year

I would like to wish everyone who may come past here the most amazing New Year and an even better 2010! I am not planning a night out, having my favourite meal, roast lamb and veggies, and then Christmas Pudding for dessert. That may be my new tradition,lol, we didnt eat the pudding on Christmas Day as we had too many other things, so having it for New Years Eve. Otherwise, planing on spending time with my faimly and relaxing. Hope you all have a lovely night.

Challenge to read 100 books in 2010

Today while I was blopping, I stumbled across this blog  where there is a challenge to read 100 books in 2010. I absolutely love reading and really dont do enough of it at the moment. It will be a challenge for me with my incredible ability to procrastinate work and studies, but I am definitely going to join in. I will create a list in my sidebar for all of my books and keep adding as I go on. The nice thing is that you dont have to list your books now, you can just read whatever you like at the time. So, if there are any other readers (books not blogs that is, I think I could finish 100 blogs to read in a week!) out there, why dont you go on over and have a look!

Christmas Preparations

I had a really late start to my Christmas Preparations this year. Last Friday I had not bought anything at all, but now I am pretty much ready. So a checklist of what I have to do before Friday
1) Wrap presents
2) Look at Christmas lights
3) Bake Gingerbread men
4) Buy Andria's present (know what I want, just got to get it)
5) Deliver presents to Andria and the boys
6) Make Trifle
7) Cook gammon on Thursday
8) Decide what I am going to do for a starter
9) Sort out Brendas stocking
10) Get food for Santa
11)Make Gingerbread food
12) Go to Childrens service on Christmas Eve
I think that is all, but I am sure something else will pop up. Brenda is very excited and is driving me a little mad! My sister arrives tomorrow, so have to do as much as possible before then! Hope everyone else is getting there and looking forward to Christmas!

Favourite Foto Friday # 70

I have not done FFF for a while. I have just been too busy and not really had a chance to take many photos. The theme is Making or Baking with Kids. I haven't done any baking this year, and who knows when we will get a chance as things are just so busy at the moment. This photo is from last year. I cant seem to find the others, but you can see the BRIGHT icing we had on our Christmas biscuits!

I passed!

I was thrilled (and slightly shocked) to see on the UNISA website that I passed my 2 exams. Still cannot believe that I passed the second one, it wasnt a brilliant mark, but it was a pass and that is the important thing! Off to register for next years modules!

Funny........or not

On Wednesday night a few friends and I decided to stop off at the Pub on the way home for a meal. I phoned my parents to tell them and they said that when I was ready to leave they would drop Brenda off with me as they were going out. Brenda, on finding this out tells the teacher at Kumon.....
"We are going to fetch my mum from the pub and I am sure she will be drunk!" How can I show my face there again?
