Letter 1: On December 11th it is School Christmas Lunch. Fill in form and return ASAP if Pickle wants it. She does NOT. Why so early? So they can get the sprouts on the boil now I guess?
Letter 2 : On December 18th it is Christmas Party Day. Fill in form and return ASAP if Pickle wants special 'Party Packed Lunch' costing £2.70. She is not getting one at that price even if she did want one - which she doesn't. Where are they getting this lunch from - Harrods?
So I wasn't over zealous in my counting the days till Christmas post after all.

- Where was I 10 years ago?
2. What's on my to do list today?
Clean out the rabbit hutch, it’s that time of year again and he is moulting.
Order that Russell Brand calendar off ebay before they all go ( I’m not the only one I’m sure)
Find the missing remote control (probably involving taking the sofas to pieces, wouldn’t be the first time)
Tidy the Lego away, because no matter what anyone says they haven’t played with it in bloody ages and I am fed up standing on it. OUCH!
Prepare myself for Picklessister’s apple crumble she made at school.
Homework, Homework and more homework. Pickle (at year 1 primary school) appears to be getting more homework than her sister (Year 6 at middle school)
3. What if I was a billionaire?
I would buy my children a house each because they are never going to afford one of their own and will be living with us FOREVER if I don’t.
Ensure that my parents had enough money to retire happily to Cromer.
Set up animal homes for mistreated animals of all shapes and sizes.
4. Five places I have lived
Um....Bury, Bury, Bury and here! I know that’s only 4 but that’s it, for now!
5. Snacks I like
Those Indian snacky bits out of
The kid’s Dairylea cheesy dipper things
Crisps – any sort
Toast and Marmite
6. 3 bad habits
Sometimes still biting my nails, even though I have given up
Not shutting drawers properly, just leaving them about 1cm open
Buying too many 'bargains' on ebay but not selling enough of my own.
7. Who am I tagging?
Karan at http://mkmreno.blogspot.com/ - hope you don't mind me intruding on your blog!
Ruby at http://yorkdailyphoto.blogspot.com/ - to prove you do still exist!
Hoffy at http://www.hoffyschannelswim.blogspot.com/ - If he isn’t too busy swimming the blooming

I just realised this could be for real as it's not even outdoor PE tomorrow, which is usually a sure sign of Picklessister being ill. She had cross country (snigger) on Wednesday, so it can't be that.
Wish me luck.

For the last 2 months there have been 54 of these elephants hidden around the city.
They have been designed by different artists and will be auctioned off later this month. The money raised will go to the Born Free Foundation and CLIC Sargent charities.
