Well I can't believe November is coming to a close. Hopefully you are getting to grips with all that Christmas shopping. It definitely pays to be organised.
Over the years, I've found that if you leave things to the last minute you end up paying over your budget for gifts you don't really want, just because you are desperate find something.
I really love Christmas and although I opt out of the cooking (much to everyone's relief), I do get into the spirit of it all and love the whole family festivities. I must admit I've been so preoccupied with my daughter's dance show that Christmas has crept up on me a little bit this year.
My little girl goes to the same dancing school that I went to all those years ago and is taught by the same teachers too, who I have to say haven't aged a bit! Well, when it came to the school show I was dragged, kicking and screaming I hasten to add, into rehersals for a tap number featuring five kids and their parents, all of whom went to the same school.
Seeing that I hung up my tap shoes and retired about 25 years ago, I wasn't keen, but when my six-year-old little princess hid under the kitchen table, sobbing, saying that she would stay there for the rest of her life because I didn't want to dance with her, what choice did I have?
I have to say it was amazing. We did three shows to packed audiences in a brilliant theatre, and I even had some QVC viewers who stayed behind to say hello, and to dance on the stage with Cassidy was incredible. I was so proud of her and wouldn't have missed it for the world!
