We all got a stomage bug so no friends over (The big day of Christmas is Christmas Eve here in Sweden) but thankfully we were in good enough condition to eat some food I prepared a couple of days before the bug today and our daughter loved the presents she got. I did buy a quite expensive doll pram which felt like an excess at the time but she loved it so now it feels like it was worth it.

There will be no church tomorrow but perhaps I will feel well enough to sneak out to the shops tomorrow to get the things that we have run out of. I will prepare the Christmas ham (the ham we were supposed to have today) tomorrow or the day after. Despite our problems it was a very nice day today.

I got a slowcooker from my husband which I have been dying to have to be able to prepare meals and come home from work with supper ready. I will just see how much I like it now that I got it. He got a subscription to a magazine which he was very happy about too. We rarely get to buy magazines and this is a specialized car magazine which he always picks up but ends up not buying to cut the costs so I am very glad to be able to give him something like that. I found the subscription online for a reduced price which is the reason I could buy it.

Christmas Eve- presents are wrapped, under the tree. Kiddo is plugging along, slow but still going.
