I'm suffering brain overload at the moment, not from Christmas, that's all sorted & paid for.
We have a lot of staff off sick at work plus lots of extra work to do that is not usual in the run up to the end of the Christmas term.
There are plans being discussed that, if they come to fruition will means a total change in mine & my L&M's life, but I'm not saying more until there is something definite to say.
We both feel that any extra we bring in is always worth it and all those little bits add up towards larger amounts. So we will not be spending or splurging this Christmas, we know what we can afford & that is what we will spend.
