Kieran will be doing a Christmas "concert" next Friday, just before his Christmas party. I have a slight feeling one of the songs is Christmas Pudding. I just love how he sings, "sprinkle on the sugar, sprinkle on the sugar."

I finished off a bit of Christmas shopping I needed to do, and by the time I'd filled the car up with petrol and put it through the car wash, (the car was so dirty my lights came on with the auto sensors!) I needed to collect Kieran.
So after we'd had lunch, I rolled up my sleeves, put on my pinnie (apron) and started rolling out the marzipan. There was no way one block of 500g was going to cover my 23cm Christmas cake. Dashed around to Tesco's, dragging poor old Kieran along (why is it illegal to leave kids home alone, I mean! He would have been fine watching 'Show Me Show Me' - I am joking!), grabbed another block of marzipan and dashed back home. Hurrah! Rolled it all out together and it covered my cake nicely. Panic over. Phew!

I also need to find time to wrap the presents I've got for family, ideally before the boys break up from school/preschool. It will be just easier if I don't have 'helpers' and I worry it takes away the magic of Christmas, and wonder if they'll start to question Santa. (Hubby and I usually wrap all of the boys presents one night, while they stay over at Nanny's. Then we have no fear of them coming down stairs and catching us wrapping their toys! Not that they usually come down stairs, but it would be Sod's Law...)
Yeah, I've got one week. Oh joy!
