I drank so much last night that for the first time in my life I can justify visiting a bottle bank. May it be the start of many trips. I had my three sisters over for a girly night - It involved drinking games and I think thats enough said!!!!

Earlier this week we all went ghost hunting at Craig-y-Nos castle . It was a good night but I couldnt help but smile when the ghost tour guide told me ghosties were using my energy and I was there for a 'different reason' Interesting though - Will probably go back for an all nighter.

I cant believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve, when I was a kid it took forever to come around, December seemed so long and now I just dont get time to think about it.

I hear Tesco opens at 12.01am tonight - Dare I do my Christmas food shopping at midnight? If I avoid the crowds - Damn right, That reminds me I have to take the turkey out.

Have a happy massively merry Christmas - Thank you to all that stop by and comment, I do appreciate it - And see getting all emotional now!!!!!

Yesterday I got laid off in work. Cant say I am devastated but I do feel a bit discriminated against as they got rid of everyone with young kids or those with commitments.

They told me that Friday would be my last day - And I thought "why should I make their life easier?" they were obviously playing the 'you have been here under 3 months and have no rights' card

So I called this morning and told them I wouldn't be bothering to come back and would drop off my uniform next week.

In the meantime I get to enjoy a Christmas at home without work on my mind.

So new years resolution - find a job pmsl.

I love the School Christmas Fayre - I dont like admitting it but I really do. And with my kids today was no exception. School Fayre's remind me of when I was a kid and that its not long till Christmas. So here's todays fun, we were nearly first in line to get in as quickly as possible

- Girl heads straight for the mystery gift stall to get the biggest and best parcels for just 50p

- And on discovering she does not like the toy sells it to the toy stall for £1. Result.

- Elsewhere, boy flashes his smile and gets a £1 bag of reindeer food for 38p. Bargain

- Meanwhile I stock up on tins for 20p a go, Not bad when beans are 47p a tin.

- Boy sets himself a challenge, what can he buy for 5p, answer a pencil case complete with parker pen.

- Then knowing Santa's helper has its advantages and we get a free picture with Santa.

- And finally Ethan won the raffle - A nice big box of choccies for us all to scoff tonight.
