That's the only word for it here Chez e&e. Tomorrow is kiddie's birthday amd she is having such trouble getting to sleep. It's now 11.42pm and she hasn't appeared for 10 minutes so we're holding our breath that she's finally succumbed to exhaustion. Bless...
If that is the case I really shouldn't be on here when I have sooooo much else to do. Her prezzies need bringing down and arranging on the sofa (her request). Her cake needs the decorations making but I don't think I'm capable of making models out of fondant icing tonight. That can be a game to play tomorrow, maybe kiddie can join in.
Her BIIIIG prezzie needs hiding somewhere to give maximum impact when she realises what she's got. It's all she had asked for this year for her birthday or Christmas. Santa has received so many letter from her, all asking for the same thing, in fact even Tara the Tooth Fairy has had a request for one. The child is desperate!! While it's way more than we'd usually spend, we have 'recycled' lots of her older toys on eBay and have used the proceeds towards the present, so in effect she had paid towards it, which we are going to explain to her.
She is going to be soooooooo pleased. I think me and Mr e&e are both just as excited to see her reaction. As my hubbie said, 'she's having it for her birthday so we get all the glory. There's no way Santa is going to get the credit for this one!!!'. lol
The Christmas Market in Lichfield with incywincy went really well. It was soooo cold but I sold Holly Dolly and a Silly Girl, plus other bits and bobs too. So it was worth freezing our bits off in the end. We had visits from blogging/forum friends - thanks Apryl and Leah for popping by, and Julia and Sam's bro for coffee to thaw us out. The mulled wine from the Scouts stall was very potent but scrummy too.
And now I shall leave you all in peace 'til next year. There are a busy couple of days ahead then we're off to Devon for a few so don't think I'll fit in another post (not with my current rate of psting anyhoo) before NYE.
Have a fantabulous Christmas and a New Year that exceeds expectations. Eat, drink, stitch and be merry and see you all in 2009.
