Over the last couple of weeks Steve has been preparing our bedroom for painting. If you all remember, our bedroom is an old kitchen so he had to pull the tiles off the walls and remove the taps too. The walls have been a lot of work. He is finally just about ready to paint though. Now the hard part is agreeing on what colour to paint it.
I have made a bit of progress with the children's clothes that need to be sewn and had a shopping trip on Saturday and got most of our presents. I will have another shopping day later this week.
I spent a bit of the weekend working out our food menu for the next two weeks. I found a great recipe for home made egg nog at As we wait in Joyful Hope and I am going to have a go at making it. If we have egg nog here, I buy it in a carton. I am also going to make some White Christmas and Rumballs and make a Christmas Pudding. I haven't ever made my own Christmas pudding or egg nog before so I am looking forward to making them both. I hope they turn out as yummy as they sound.
