I have been ill all week - cold/cough/aches/headache - i have started to feel a little better, but its really worn me out :(

Veggie sausage sandwich with ketchup and bloomer bread wearing my favourite 'I feel ill' jumper:

 I took the boys to school and then literally dragged myself to the shops to buy balsam tissues and savlon for my poor red nose. I chucked in some tacky mags and a bar of choccie to keep me company too:

 This has been my view for the last week, pretty much:

Oh and heres another one:

 On Sunday i decided we would put our tree up. We always do it together as a family with Jive bunnies Christmas c.d on, mince pies and hot choccie with cream. This has been the earliest our tree has gone up, but we are busy all next weekend and i like to have the decs up for about a month:

 I still feel rough today, but much better than last week. The hubbie is out tonight, so i have just put the boys to bed, made myself a hot choccie whilst i catch up with blogs:

Organising and new buys

Finally an organised under stairs cupboard:

Found my dresser shelves!!!!

New magazine. Sorry Prima, but i think i prefer this free calendar this year!!

After seeing the Red Hot Chili peppers the night before, me and the hubbie chilled out by seeing a film and reading magazines before heading back up to London to see Tinie Tempah:

Yay!!! i am so excited to have my first ever tumble dryer. I have always managed before in the winter to hang clothes on radiators, but in this house they are all flush to the wall. With a 6 foot 2 man and two growing boys in the house it has been impossible to dry anything:

A new footstool for the kitchen. Shall i paint or varnish?

Preparing for the snow. I was soooo unorganized last year and everywhere ran out of everything:
