This is will probably be my last blog until after Christmas, so I hope you all have a fantastic time.
I going to see family in Grimsby this year. Really looking forward to it.

I have quite a few things still left to do. I have to finish off a Christmas cake for my gramdma. It still needs icing. I need to finish off my chocolates, as I got bored of doing them so just bunged them in the freezer. I also have some wrapping to do. John is also coming down today at some point.
Tomorrow Col and her new family are coming for dinner then we are all going to the Christingale at the church.

Christmas eve we are allowed a chocolate off the tree, thought I think someone has been poaching them before hand, and a sherry. Then it is time for bed until Father Christmas arrives.

Hi. Got a message yesterday saying that the part time post has already been filled by someone else. I have to say I'm not too heart broken. It would have been nice to have had a steady income after Christmas and that I didn't have to keep going to the job centre and filling the same form every time I do over 16 hours. Never mind will keep trying.
Whisky is home from the vets. He came home yesterday, but was drugged up most the afternoon. He is a bit brighter today and has even got some of his wag back.

Good News

Hi. I

Have had fantastic news. I think that I will be getting part time working teaching in the new year. The school which I go to, need a supply teacher to cover PPA time for two and half days. They have put my name forward.


Lovely weekend

Had a really nice weekend. Meet dad girlfriends children for the first time. They also brought their girlfriends. Everything went really well. They are all the same age as me and I got on with themwell. We played games and eat far too much I drank tooo much, so I'm not sure what they thought of me.

Going to do my last shopping bits today, need a few things to make up peoples prezzies. Whisky (The dog) is going into the vets tomorrow. He has a lump on his side so he is going to have it removed. So I'm going to looking after him for a few days as Dad and Alice are going to London to see her mum.

Right going to do ironing now. I hate ironing it seems of pointless. I would rather iron things as a need them.

Flying Doctor.

I'm going to be a flying doctor. No it isn't a change of career. But the character I'm going to be in the murder mystery party on New Years eve. I have to practice my auzzie accent.

Throw an nother shrimp on the barbie.
I couldn't give a castlemane 4 X for anything else.

The school I went to look round today was amazing. In the whole of the school there are only 26 kids. The job I applied for has seven children in the class. That is all foundation stage and key stage one. I really want this job. I was so excited that I applied straight away.

Merry Christmas Love Sam X

Was in school again last week. Had a really rough day. Bit of a crazy class. But I managed, though my voice was quite strained by the end of the day. I definitely earn my money that day.

This is the finished result of the Christmas cake I've make. Really pleased with it. Dad doesn't like it, said it would like better with model santa's and snowmen on it. Decided that was too difficult for a beginner like me.

Having two Christmas's this year. Dad's Girlfriend has invited her family next weekend, so we are having an early Christmas, with turkey, crackers and games. I haven't meet them before. I will also be the odd one out as I'm going to be the only single person there everyone else is taking a partner.

Dad had finally brought him Christmas present from last year. Me and Colleen clubbed together to get him a bow and arrow, but the one we got him wasn't very good. So we just gave him the money to get one he liked. He is all kitted out now.

Dreaming in Chocolate.

I never thought I would hear myself say this, but I've had enough of chocolate. I have been extremly busy making chocolate truffle and desserts. I'm sick to death of it. I can't even manage to lick the bowls out.

I started out by making a few Delia Smith truffles, just to try them. They were a big success. So I thought I would make a few for Christmas presents for people. Then my Dad asked me to make some more for his girlfriends kids, as they are coming down at the weekend. I am totally chocolated out.

Plus I've made chocolate torte for dessert for the weekend.

The chocolates do look good though. I'm quite impressed with myself as I hate cooking of any sort.

Right had to go, got masses of ironing to do before Dad get back, otherwise he will think I've done nothing but watch TV all morning.

Love Sam X

PS I'm going to look round a local school tomorrow morning. Quite nervous about it as I really want this job.

New Year Party.


We are having a New Year Party. We are being very sophisticated and are having a small gathering of people to enjoy a night of mature socialising and games. Me and Vicky are organising a murder mystery night complete with a few choice cocktails.

Very adult and sensible evening planned.


Shopping Hell


MY GOD! I will never go Christmas shopping on a Saturday again. It is full of crazy people with kids in pushchairs. I only brought one thing. It took me three quaters of an hour too get a car parked.

The Christmas Market was manic, couldn't get near any stalls. I think it has got a lot tackier than it use to be. Every other stall is selling flashing Santas hats and rather randomly Flashing bunny ears (Maybe left over from Easter). It use to have loads more novel craft things, now it is the same old tat.

Going to stay in bed with John all day tomorrow recovering.

Hi. This is me in a hole.

Going to Lincoln Christmas Market tomorrow night.

Have iced my first Chiristmas cake today. I'm really pleased with myself. Never done it before. Will post a picture of the finished produce. Hope it tastes ok. Have also started to make some home made chocos as prizzies for people. I'm becoming a proper house wife. It is a good job too, as John ask asked to live with him next year. Scary stuff!! I will have to start making jam and dried flower arrangments next. Wait that isn't a house wife that middle aged. HELP!!!!! Oh My God!!! HELP!!!

Have to go and finish the rug (not the hair kind) I'm making now. Bye.

Opened my advent calendar today got a Christmas pudding. It is a chocolate one. I couldn't find a normal non chocolate one. There should be a diet version of advent calendars. Maybe they could have Christmas themed carved carrot sticks or something.

I really hate the word Xmas, I don't see why people shorten Christmas to xmas. It isn't as if it is any quicker to say. You may as well say X.

Any way enough of the moaning. I'm still working and loving it. Have near finished shopping. I hate finishing Christmas shopping well before Christmas. As then I continue buying people stuff they don't really need. Like Father Christmas Mugs, or ties that sing Christmas songs. I just can't stop myself.

Anyway have to go now. Dad to fixing my car again, going to take it for a test drive.

Merry X.
