Anything you are thinking of doing differently for 2017? What's going to keep you occupied until our 2017Christmas?
I've still managed to get to the shops and done card factory, got all our cards for next year, gift bags, pin the nose on the reindeer, 2 make your own Santa stop here signs, a decoration for the bookcase and a Xmas teddy each for the kids..for 13! Got this from boots for my sis in law reduced to 8 Also got this for my stepmum was half price so ended up at 22.50 BUT I used my points so basically got it free!
Also went to Argos for the tech frog thing for Noah but there was an error and turns out they don't have it in stock but instead I got him is, what a bargain!
So what is going to keep me occupied from now to Christmas 2017 is getting bits in for the flat as apart from a few bits I am starting from scratch. Some excellent savings on mothercare site - just spend DSs money from PIL on more trackmaster. I then have birthdays in jan, may, aug and oct and then 2 holidays planned that need preparing for lol.
Should pick up the present planning baton in april lol.
I've already been looking at stuff to get him, reserved a vetch turtle thing at Argos it's half price!
I already been scouring the sales as early as 4am this morning lmao!
Normally I'd just have pancakes or a pot noodle because the girls have dinner at the other house (we do half day) but as previously said Noah will only have 1 xmas so I need to get it started for him, I did a xmas dinner this year, only me eating it though but as I'm breastfeeding I figured he'd sorta have it haha 4) xmas eve box Can't think of any other traditions but would love to hear other people's traditions and hopefully get some ideas!!
To keep myself occupied until xmas 2017 I have dd1 birthday in February, my birthday in April (plan to do a short break away to Harry Potter world), Easter, dd2 birthday in July, would love to do a summer holiday this year (we've never had a holiday before), and then finally Noah's first birthday in October!

Hoping to get some fragrance sets & Christmas cards in the sale x Sent from my i Phone using Netmums Haha .... I'm not planning on buying much more at the mo except cards and any fragrance sets on offer as got 2 of my kids birthdays in march & need to save for a holiday x Sent from my i Phone using Netmums I'm saving with park again too Tris, they are great to have just before Christmas and because I paid by direct debit I found it so much easier as I just seen it as a bill. Donna that pj day sounds brill but wouldn't work for me being a single mum, you can enjoy it for me as well though haha! I've just been on super drug website and they've got insane reductions, a lovely gift set was 50 now 15!!

We going to be going to my mums Christmas Eve and leave about 3/4pm then either walk or bus home(depending on weather and how we feel, a tradition I have wanted to start for ages) and look at the lights as we go.
