There are only 24 hours in a day, and I hope you slept for some of them.
Please stop putting yourself under such tremendous pressure. It's going to break you.

Drag children away from DVD.

Go to local park / local shops and get last minute things.

Have a very quiet afternoon ("no fighting or Santa won't come !!")

Start packing for trip to NZ.

Dishes / clean kitchen benches.

Fold and put away washing (I am one of the weirdos that actually likes folding washing - I turn on my fav DVD - and sit surrounded by washing baskets folding to my heart's content).

When girls are in bed - put presents under the tree.

Washing was done and hung on the line by 6am today.
Woolies shopping done by 7.30am.
All children and husband fed breakfast.
I am now going to clean from the back of the house to the front of it - well not clean but tidy as it is already clean.
Make a potato salad to take to BIL tomorrow,
Go across the road for drinks with neighbours and to wait for Santa's lolly throwing truck
Drink wine.
Sleep

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce. Together, we walked into the kitchen and hovered over the skillet like we were peering into a crystal ball. Looking into my future, I saw me eating a lot of take away.
