    Nothing this year thankfully! Last year was a disaster, I forgot to assemble the dolls goose until I was close to a bottle of white wine. It came out ok but the assembly process was questionable to say the least, dh kept well away as I weilded that screwdriver!

    well if you made a dolls goose, clearly you had had too much wine or not enough

    We sent the kids to grandma and pops for a few hours this afternoon and put together a trampoline and a barbie house. There were a few little dramas along the way but overall it was pretty stress free

    We have a small games table to put together, and an orbit tennis set to stick in the back yard.
    I also need to sew 2 magicians capes to go with the magic sets I got the kids, i think I'd rather a swing set or cubby!

    I'm a glutton for punishment, last Christmas it was the cubby house with all the stickers, a bike, and a 8ft trampoline. Half way through the cubby DH my step dad and I were three parts p!ssed on eggnog the trampoline was nopt that much fun attempting to put together at 3 am my mum ended up cracking it at us because all of the noise we were making and came out at 2 am and starte3d putting the bike together, looking at the stickers on the cubby the next day was terrible I was out there with the hair dryer peeling them off and sticking them on again in the correct places.

    This year it's a 3.4m x 3.4m spring free trampoline and a 12ft pool. DS has daycare tomorrow so I'm making DH call in sick for me tomorrow *cough cough* my dad, step mum and 16 yr old step brother are coming over and were getting it all done while DS is at daycare. there will be no egg nog involved this year (well during the day)
