Ok I am opening the bar.

Two kids down, one to go.

DH nowhere to be seen (work Xmas party)... Expect drunk wake up 3am or so.

Anticipating checking kids Christmas gift by stealth.

Off to grab some Midori and pineapple juice.

So here to the end of the world.

I heard an ad on the radio last night that encouraged responsible drinking "even though you might not wake up tomorrow due to the world ending" or something to that effect biggrin.gif

I'm here, have had a couple of glasses of bubbly. All three kids in bed but the two girls are still mucking around.
DH at yet ANOTHER bloomin work Xmas do', no doubt will roll home somewhere in the wee hours of the morning. Sucked in because I'm working tomorrow so he'll be watching the kids with a lovely hangover.
I'm in the worst mood rolleyes.gif and I don't really know why!

Not drinking (yet), just got home from the gym.  I can't lift my arms above my head, LOL.

Contemplating how to combat six weeks of summer holiday boredom...

Could you wait till kids are in bed, ever so carefully unwrap present, ascertain contents ....then re-wrap? That's what I would do...suspect you are a better person than me.... ph34r.gif

Ill join! Work is finished for the year, gifts wrapped (and peeked at) and I'm enjoying a mixed berry cider. DS is due for bed shortly and I feel like it'll be a late one for me due to my earlier 2 hour nap biggrin.gif

Both girls in bed. DH home on holidays now for 3 weeks, yay to having an extra pair of hands on deck!

Have had a crap week due to DD2 getting her 4 mo needles on Monday and being cranky all week. TGIF.

No on further peeking. Wrapping paper taped to the box underneath in multiple places. Trust me I am an expert on Christmas pressie peeking from way back. Seriously impressed with this wrapping. Looks like they puzzled the end of a few bits of wrapping paper together and finely fitted it to the box, sticking it down on the box.

Diet coke for now, will find some red later.  Just giving the baby some boobie while listening to the other kids not sleeping in their beds and DH grumping at house plans.

Last day of school today original.gif

Got sunburned while checking erosion in one of our creeks.  DD2 was with me and she fell in, got muddy and stripped off.  I didn't want her getting sunburned so I put my shirt on her and finished off my measurements just in my bra.  Ouch.

Did the kids see the wrap?  Or do you have a really similar wrap?  If so rip it off and re-wrap!   ph34r.gif


I scored a bargain on my fav Grant Burge bubbly today at First Choice.  Was expecting to pay $22/ bottle.  Rang up at $15.   So I bought 6.    Was that naughty? Have already finished off a bottle with DH with dinner and am eyeing off a second....     Maybe I will be praying that the world had ended tomorrow!

DH is now on holiday, but I still have some work to do over the weekend and on Monday.  Sigh.......

Yes, I heard it too - Thirsty Camel.   It made me giggle - they said "We don't what time it supposed to end. We're not even sure whether they have taken into account daylight savings"

I am onto my third (very small) glass of Pinot Gris and very much enjoying it - both kids in bed & husband having "a quick drink after work" - we all know how they will end.

Present under the tree. Kids have been exclaiming over the wrap. Not a pattern I remember seeing in the shops. My kids are too into details not to miss a Rewrap using different paper.

DH is now exclaiming about how good his new beer glasses are and how they really improve the flavour and nose of the beer.

Sigh... Could the world end earlier?
