It's 2:30 and I can't sleep, I had hoped to sleep better once the mortgage was sorted but it appears not.
Still, step one has been accomplished the old mortgage has been paid off with the new one. This reduces our mortgage repayments from almost £800 a month down to £250 a month. This gives us a little bit of wriggle room whilst we plan our next step.
All the Christmas presents have been ordered, those that have arrived have been hidden. One of the dgs's has a birthday before Christmas. His present has also been bought.
We have our 12 yo dgs here tonight, Saturday we have 4 dgc's staying from about 5ish overnight until lunchtime Sunday, I'm not expecting to get much sleep! I have meals and entertainment planned, it's not as posh as it sounds. There is enough in the cupboards and freezer to cater for everybody's tastes and as for entertainment, I've spent the last week collecting paper offcuts from the guillotine and I have some glue sticks, we will be making paperchains ready for Christmas. We will make some biscuits too and ice them, very messy but great fun.
A friend recently lost his mother, a blessed relief I feel as she spent the last few years confused, aggressive and confined to bed, dementia is a bastard of a disease.
My friend who was diagnosed with lung cancer seems to have come through surgery and is on the mend.
And now I will go and make a cuppa, then maybe I can sleep.
