In the evening Ian and I went to one of our favourite restaurants " The swan with two necks" after I had arranged the enormous bouquet of flowers.
Well that's Advent sorted .
The rest of the week has been filled with school play rehearsals , Oscar rehearsals and booster groups for a couple of classes . Oh and frozen cars to defrost before school and work. Not much fun at any time but especially not 6am ish when Ian leaves.
On Thursday I went with Norton in Hales school to see Arabian nights It was fantastic . Theatre in the round is so good and ALL the children loved it
Then on Friday I moved the furniture round to accommodate the tree (when it arrives) so the Nativity is now in the window.
Next came the weekend and Saturday saw Ian and I and Becky and Carl driving over to visit my Father who once again is in hospital. He has heart failure and has gone from being a larger than life man to one who sadly is looking old. Hopefully he will be able to leave hospital this coming week. He is still independent but we do not want him to go back to his flat but unless there is a miracle I feel he will live out his days in the flat, we would love him to come and live here , Ian has plans for changing the downstairs to accommodate him.
Liz and James and Chris and Gemma are driving to see him today, so no doubt that will Cheer him up .
Speaking of Liz and James yesterday they moved into their first home together. They have a 2 bed apartment in Elland somewhere near Huddersfield.
I will take pics on 17th when we o up for the graduation ceremony.
Well best go have Rainbows to prepare for, pressies to wrap for friends in Manchester, then church and then I am off to Manchester for lunch and Ian s going down to Oxfordshire for his companies annual conference.
Have a great week and will fill you in again next week.
