School's Out!


We've broken up for Christmas.
The panto in Cheltenham was great fun, (oh no it wasn't) although trying to weave the children through Christmas shoppers is always a bit stressful.
Our Christmas lunch was excellent with everything locally sourced ~ the turkey was particularly good.
The children all went a bit wild at their class parties and quite a few over ate and turned green but luckily none threw up.

Mr Clicky Needles and me had his work's Christmas 'Do' last night which had a James Bond theme.
Now, I wouldn't usually show our faces on my blog but I think we scrubbed up fairly well.
 I spent a good few hours being coiffured in the hair dressers, so my usual curls were forced straight!
The real revelation was having my nails done!
This was the first time I've ever had them done.  No washing up/cleaning or anything that will make them chip now.  I love them and might make this a monthly thing. Hehe.
We had a nice meal, and then got to play roulette and backgammon with chips ( no real money) and I got to meet Mr CN's new colleagues. 

We got this lovely hamper from Mr Clicky Needles' employer, it's been quite a few years since we've been spoiled at Christmas.  DS has already munched the candy canes.
Right I'm off now, in the middle of doing the tree so pictures tomorrow.
Have a nice evening.......Clicky Needles.


  1. You do indeed scrub up well, glad you had a good evening. What a super gift to receive!

    Don't you feel good when you've had a manicure? I want to book in for a pedicure in 2012 as I've never had one of those.

  2. Sounds like a fun way to start the holidays!

  3. Wow, you are having a fun holiday time! You look GORGEOUS!! I love your nails too.. I had mine done like that but I kind of picked at mine.. I need to try again and leave them alone!

    I always think be nice to treat the nails but never get around to it.
