One more sleep...

...if they would actually go to sleep!

I am sat here with a big bag of birthday pressies waiting to be wrapped, sellotape and scissors at the ready, but whilst the little darlings are still running about and chattering way too loudly, I am in limbo-land!  They are likely to come crashing into the room at any point.

So I shall make another cup of tea, track down some biscuits and wait...


I know, it's a very boring picture, but it's the best of a bad bunch this evening!

Sadly the late night will not mean a lie-in tomorrow, their body-clocks are as good at telling the time as they are!  Ooh, an idea for Christmas pressies!

It's going to be a long evening and short night; I hope your Friday night is more exiting than mine! x

  9. We no actually - my evening involved watching The Expendables. Undoubtedly the crappiest film I've watched in a long time!

  10. Get them one of those bunny clocks which 'sleeps' at night and they are not supposed to get up before the bunny wakes up. I believe you set it whatever time you want and then the bunny opens its eyes. Myself, I would set it for about 10am.

  14. Well by now I imagine there is paper everywhere and either squeeling or deadly silence as they get absorbed with their LeapPads. Have a wonderful day!

  17. We saw Skyfall and had a burger afterwards. A little more exciting than your evening, but I bet your Saturday morning is a lot more exciting than mine. Happy birthday to the kiddies!

  18. Happy birthday to the girls, hope they've had a wonderful day - if I'd have known earlier, I'd have sent cheesecake ;-)

  19. Is it really bad that when you said an idea for Christmas pressies I immediately thought quilted gags and restraints? Hmmm yes bad bad lady.

  20. Pizza and a pint of Ben and Jerry's. It's not all that exciting here, either :)
